In Topic: No media coverage

I have a feeling Cincinnati is going to draw well.

And related to that, it seems like new/expansion teams get good crowds. ATL, Orlando, LAFC etc. Even Portland and the sounders were brought into the league in the 2000s.

Maybe its because it is are new and exciting for those fans? Unlike places like DC Columbus, Dallas or NJ, where the excitement seems to have faded.


Well those cities didnt have to deal with there just being 8 teams in the league, games being decided by shootouts, and lower quality of the late 90s-early 00s. Its easy to give them credit for having great crowds but its also easy to enter an established league

In Topic: CM is our biggest issue

FWIW Dyer asked Armas specifically about the CM position and Armas confirmed that was the area where they were looking at closing a deal shortly, most likely from outside of MLS. Probably the same move Hamlett alluded to the other day.

I'm surprised how quickly Rzatskowski faded into the sunset. Was there no attempt whatsoever to bring him back?


I think it was his salary that stopped him from coming back. He was earning almost $1 million

Its not about having a big name. The problem is the perception of MLS. Atlanta fans and other expansion markets didnt have MLS during the early years. Years when it seemed like every year might be the last one, and when three owners owned every team. MLS is already tarnished here in New York, everyone sees it as inferior.

Time is the only thing that will help but well never be Atlanta. Im fine with how the team is doing except for the lack of championships.

Hes had one foot out the door since he was supposed earlier in the year. There was that couple of games after the World Cup when he wasnt playing and seemed to be gone

In Topic: No Traveling Press for RBNY

I don't understand why people seem to think the press, which is struggling, would be sending a dedicated reporter to cover a game for the team with the smallest fanbase in the New York metropolitan area.
