What is wrong with the format of this thread?

That's the bare minimum for RBS, their goal is progress in Europe maybe making it out of the UCL group stage


Hence my use of the word domestically.

With hard times already upon us, the last thing MLS needs to do is cancel the season.  
If no soccer is played this year, there would be at least a 17-month gap between games.  Many fans may have turned their attention elsewhere, and might not return.
A difference between the league & the players of 1% is probably $3-4 million.  Surely MLS can absorb that.
I can see why the players oppose attendance clauses.  
Look at the way RB posts its BS numbers.  
Other teams could easily do the same.  
Even legit numbers could be manipulated.

Those Monday Friday games at 2:30 ET are great for the work from home situation


Literally the only game in town.
Shame that Fox put it on FS2.

I know Red Bull has been working hard to figure out a way to have live fans before.


RB have been trying to have live fans for the past 15 years, with diminishing results.

Delete the thread & stop scaring us!
Edit: changing the thread title is not enough!

I would wear a Metrostars mask, Jake!


Unfortunately, we do not have any Metro fabric.
Jets was left over from some previous project.

You have been involved in marketing RBNY for 15 of the past 20 years.  
How do you explain the failure of every marketing plan?

(This is actually a soft question!  
He could claim that some plans have succeeded.)
