Not gonna wish death on the guy but would love for us to get a complete rebrand so we can finally move on from all the Red Bull stuff.

At least when our attendance still sucks people can't use the excuse about the teams name anymore lol

I'd be pretty happy if the Devils owners bought the team. At least they would keep the colors and probably come up with a decent name(I hope lol)

Has RB sold off any of their sports teams before? I know they've acquired others, but I'm not aware of any sales.

The global corporation is not lacking cash, and as far as we know they operate rbny very tightly. I don't see a reason why they'd sell rbny just because the owner died.

Yes. They dumped their NASCAR team and Red Bull Ghana. Might have been more.

The global corporation is not lacking cash, and as far as we know they operate rbny very tightly. I don't see a reason why they'd sell rbny just because the owner died.

I think the hope is that with a new person, or new people, calling the shots, they don't see the value in continuing to own RBNY.  It's obviously all speculative, and you may be right that Red Bull under new leadership may just stay the course.

 

But new leadership at least offers a glimmer of hope to those who want new ownership of RBNY that Red Bull's business plan may change, and that may include selling off the NJ soccer team.  The team may not cost the global corporation very much, but some people may view the limited marketing and tax write off benefits (and developing the occasional player that can help Leipzig) as not worth even the small cost of operating the team.

 

I don't follow F1, but didn't Red Bull sell off an F1 team, or at least re-organize their F1 operation at some point?  Edit:  I must have been thinking of what Metrofanatic posted above, it was a NASCAR team,  not F1.

co-tenant is called Gotham...

 

would line up perfectly to be named...METRO-polis FC.

This is what I have always thought will happen - how much did what's-his-face want for rights to the name? 

 

 

I'm a fan of Metro SC, but that video entry reel on the website is really worth something. People still know Pele.

You see these zillionaires cashing out as much as they can to make estate planning easier, but I don't see that as a concern here.  He's just got the one kid

You dont have to now.

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

No one is saying he's dead, but plenty of indications he is in seriously bad health, and no denials coming from him or his camp
