Heres Wayne Rooney sunburnt as fuck for everybodys viewing pleasure. Welcome to MLS!
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Watching the highlights.....I really hate field level suites. It completely ruins the atmosphere on a broadcast.

 

Looking at the stands that show up in the broadcast, instead a crowd of rabid fans you get a few barcaloungers and sliding doors with people on cell phones. DC's new diggs look especially bad on TV. You get these big empty white walls instead of actual people because they've elevated the stands so high off the field to fit the suites. Looks awful.

 

It's not just here. Baseball has this problem with ultra elite seats behind home plate. NFL too. Just a huge pet peeve of mine in stadium design.

It always looks like no one is at Mets & Yankees games, because the sections behind home plate are usually half to 3/4s empty. Much of that crowd are inside the restaurants, watching on TV. Also, the teams became infatuated with selling prime seats for $500 to $1,000 each, becoming scalpers in the process.

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

Apparently DCU can't waste any time playing in a stadium that's already decaying.

No DC love for 2 of 3 SGs?

Perhaps we are lucky that RB can only half-fill RBA.
Otherwise GSU could have been shut out of 133.

I was told by someone that this is an active initiative by the league to have teams only have one supporters group for legal reasons and also being able to control them. Take that for what it's worth.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

I don't know if the suites on the broadcast are directly related to this, but most of the TV sight lines were lost and they had to shift kickoff times for the rest of the year because they didn't realize that the sun glare would shine directly into most of the TV cameras until like a month ago.

I am glad that DC finally got a stadium of their own, and that it is still a complete shithole.

The new stadium is probably not a complete shithole.
Still, the birthing problems (so far: design flaws, SG issues and poor construction) go hand-in-hand with the flawed leadership of Olsen.
The laughter continues. I await the first duct tape tifo.

Wouldn't change the broadcast angle on TV, there's no camera perches on the other side of the field. The patio area along the side line with the sliding doors just looks so bad on TV. It's probably not a big deal in person since you always see the full crowd, but on a broadcast all you see is what looks like some picnic going on next to the field.
