No lineups, no goalscorers... Pathetic.

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

This team straight up sucks at fan involvement.

 

I totally understand trying to keep teams guessing with our formation and XI but that last what one match maybe two until video gets out.

 

So is it worth it have a marginal advantage in two matches vs your dwindling fanbase having some interaction with a team most are on the fence about supporting moving forward...

Gordon and/or Struber and Thelwell probably thinks providing details is giving the competition inside information so there is direction not to provide it.

To be fair, the amount of information most teams are giving this offseason is much more secretive, but RBNY has been one the worst.

Most teams arent really putting a whole lot out. I expect to get highlights and wouldnt be surprised if the friendly on the 10th is streamed since they are letting supporters into the stadium for that

It sucks and I hate it. I also think the number of fans who really care about it are a minority. The average fan either doesn't give a shit or shrugs it off. I'm not defending the decision but highlighting that the team probably decided the competitive advantage of releasing no info outweighs the PR.

It just sucks, I've been keeping complete records since 2000, and this is now a giant hole. I know very few care, but...

No I agree. It blows and I wish they'd just tell us who scored the goals. Teams aren't going to be able to gameplan because we learned Danny Royer scored one goal and Tom Barlo another. It doesn't reveal anything about tactics.
