Tell that to thousands that always turn up for bs friendlies. Soccer in the region is alive and well, MLS teams not so much, the two seem to have very little overlap unfortunately. What the problem is is anyone's guess, possibly all of the above but there are ton of soccer fans willing to pay big bucks to see soccer. Just not MLS soccer..

 

I go and enjoy watching and supporting my local team and absolutely couldn't care less about foreign team's friendlies just as they don't care about us. And that is fine in my book.

I took note of the MLS bashing at the USA vs Turkey friendly. It was mind boggling.

We probably average around 17k legit fans in the building


IMO, the legit number is probably closer to 10K.
RBNY reports average attendances in excess of 20K. That is the total number of tickets distributed, not the turnstile count. No way are 85% of the announced crowd in the house.
Watching the game replay at this moment and it looks like 5K. Announced 17,392.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Through some rough calculations, the lower bowl holds 12000 people. I'd say the lower bowl most nights is mostly full. Then the middle upper deck is usually mostly full, and there's usually some people spread out in the 200 sections behind the South Ward. 15-17k real number average is likely the case.
