IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM EVERYONE HERE AT TEAM FORZA LUCHA/ESC
Everyone's most and/or least favorite NYCFC turncoat, Thomas Binkley (former RBNY fan/ESC member, now turned an NYCFC fan) has issued a challenge to ESC membership in the name of charity. As some of you might remember from last year, Binks ponied up a $200 sponsorship for Forza Lucha and made sure to mention NYCFC under his name on the sponsor banners.
This year Binks is kicking in $300 for a sponsorship. However, if ESC members can raise $1250 in donations for Forza Lucha, he will take his name off of all sponsorship materials as well as mentions by the ring announcer and broadcast team.
Below is the text that will appear on sponsor banners if we fail to raise the required amount.
Bronx Football Social Club
He Paid. You Lost.
Time to whine on a Message Board
Donations can be made at the Square link. If you wish to donate as a sponsor you can view the levels here:https://www.facebook...045371585555615. Please note that only individual donations/sponsorships from ESC members count towards the total, not business/organization sponsorships.
Deadline to donate for this challenge is Thursday, August 4 at 5pm. (We will, of course, take donations at any time for Forza Lucha, but only donations made by the deadline will count towards the challenge.)
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO SHUT BINKS UP! DONATE TODAY!

This front office wont take us seriously unless we ask hard questions. I still remember the conference final like it was yesterday. With that being the case, I am going to ask Marsch, aside from Robles and Dax, Why did the team seem like it laid down and died without a fight over the two legs, was it because of the international break, was it your tactics in the match, or was it your failure to get your players ready to play. Another question would be to Grandpre and Curtis, are you willing to spend money on a CB since we have a hole in that position with the departure of Miazga. A third question would be, with a lot of cap space and Kei Kamara being a free agent, would you consider signing Kei Kamara to help up front with BWP so BWP isn't the only focal point of the attack. Finally we have to make sure they will take CCL seriously just like they took the US open cup more seriously (until Grandpre or Austrian overlords decided a friendly against Chelsea was more important than the open cup. Only benefit of that friendly was Miazga getting discovered and sold instead of going out on free transfer. While these questions may seem obvious, they need to be asked to keep management on their toes and not relaxed in their jobs. This organization has still not met its ultimate goal of winning MLS Cup, a US Open Cup, or advancing to the knockout stage of CCL. Next Wednesday should not be a dick stroking fest for the front office. Serious on field questions need to be asked.
I see you're planning on carrying on your tradition of making a scene at the town hall. You have so many problems with this team, yet have no problem carrying around the Supporter's Shield any time you get a chance.
And SERIOUSLY, do you honestly think ANYONE in the FO or on the team is "relaxed" in their job? Do you think and member of a FO or team anywhere in the US is "relaxed" in their job? Ridiculous.
Do this: Go to the town hall, act like an adult, ask a question, and move on.

This thread was dead for two months. Team wins the shield, sets team record wins/points in a season, has goalie of the year and coach of the year. Beats DC in the playoffs AGAIN, and loses to the 2nd best team in the conference, and likely the favorite now to win the cup.
But NOW we need to resurrect this thread and complain the season was a failure? Get. The. Fuck. Outta here. I love Petke, but he's NOT coming back to coach this team. Get over it, or just go away.

Visiting teams always get a share of profit from games, in every league. So yes, attending away games does mean you're putting money into Red Bull's pocket. And no, I'm not "naming names." What good would that do?
If you think your merch boycott is having more than a 1% affect on the team's sales, you're crazy. Aside from die hard fans, I doubt most of the every day fans attending games have any idea that RBO is a thing at this point. Certainly can't tell from the RBO blog. If everyone was still hardcore about the effort, I'd expect people to be at the 2nd town hall, at least outside talking to the season ticket holders. But how quickly things change when a team is performing well.
Yeah, I agree on this. I don't think this is Jesse. This is 100% MdG/Austria.
It's also not 100% on RB either. The organizers of this tour likely present the North American teams with the dates that will be available, and then those teams decide whether they will participate or not. And off season or not, these Euro teams draw money, plain and simple. Now as a business, you need to decide what you'll profit off more, a meaningless game that is sure to draw fans, or a cup tourney that your team may or may not still be in that will draw around 2000 people. Pretty easy decision, despite what hardcore fans would want. Hardcore fans are not, and never will be, the ones bringing money into stadiums. Sports rely on that casual fan, the one that will show up, pay for parking, not try eating in the areas around the arena and instead wait in crazy lines for a shitty hot dog and $8 drinks. It's how sports work, despite what our wishes are.
Look at the WWE. the die hard fan HATES John Cena, because he's boring and does the same shtick night in, night out. But you go to any event, and there are thousands of kids wearing his shirt, hat, wristband, etc. And that's why WWE won't change his gimmick. It makes money, period.
Once (all of) the teams, league, and US Soccer start to take the Open Cup seriously, start promoting it as the prestigious trophy it is, then maybe we'll see a change in the way it's presented to the every day fan. Then just maybe we'll be scheduling cash grab games AROUND legit competitions.
There is no IF it's not his decision. Clearly it's not his decision. I'm finding it hard to believe you don't realize that. Do you go into your boss' office and tell him what's what? He can promise how he as coach would like to approach it, and how he'll tell his players to approach it. It should be fairly obvious that scheduling of the ICC is not his call. You admit that yourself. Then you grudgingly admit that somebody above him may have lied to him, but you're still gong to hold him responsible for their lies, lol?
Just curious, if Zubar doesn't start tonight, or even play, does that mean Marsch lied about that? After all, when I asked whether Zubar would feature Wednesday he said yes. I just think your definition of lie is a tad...broad.
I think it's pretty obvious that when Jesse was hired, and then participated in the town hall, he was well aware of a tourney that wasn't even booked yet, because his psychic powers know no bounds.
Oh....wait a minute, I was thinking of Professor Xavier from the X-Men. Never mind.

You're missing the point of his post.
The point is no matter what's on the jersey, everyone would bitch about it due to how the current regime is operating.
Personally, I thought having "As long as we're breathing" stitched in the inside collar would have been rad, but I'm sure people would have flipped their shit saying that Granpre-man has no right putting that in the shirt since it belongs to the fans.

Aren't you lovely. Go ahead and tell us from your SG member position why saying and doing nothing was the right play here.
How do you know nothing is being said or done? A statement was made. And there's discussions going on right now on what to do. Just because nothing has been printed in the NY Post doesn't mean action is being discussed.
Also my original post is directed to the troll that started this. It's amazing how many times people love to jump on this board and voice their displeasure over the SGs, whether is what songs are done, tifo, protesting, etc, while they sit on the other side of the stadium, with no actual ideas on how to improve situations.
But no, just post on here anonymously and start up shit. THAT'S how things will get done!
