#1337722 Parker close to deal

Posted by CurbYourNewUrbanism on 07 December 2018 - 04:11 PM

From Kristian Dyer: https://theathletic....or-tim-parker/ 



Multiple sources tell The Athletic that the Red Bulls are close on a deal to sign defender Tim Parker to a multi-year contract. One source said that the deal would utilize Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) to lock down the center back. The Red Bulls declined to comment.

#1337712 Adams to Leipzig official

Posted by CurbYourNewUrbanism on 07 December 2018 - 11:02 AM

With This signing it made me think of something...

So if RB Leipzig and NYRB works with synergy, why can't NYRB and the actual Energy Drink RedBull work together? Can't NYRB they just go around the salary cap and or Fifa fair play rules by signing players to a low wage to stay under the salary cap but after signing him or at the end of his time playing with RedBull sign him to a huge RedBull energy advertising endorsement deal?

Like say for instance getting a guy like Macnelly Torres and since he's without a club and has no agent he could be a easy sign. And then sign him to say 100k... Then after he signs the deal and or even completed the deal or retired or whatever RedBull sign him for an endorsement deal for say 4-5 million

This would almost certainly be a CBA violation. I know that the NFL CBA has an explicit provision against this and I'm sure the MLS does too.

#1337661 No PATH service to/from WTC for 2019, 2020 seasons

I hope the Port Authority gets pressure (it's going to take a lot more than RBNY fans) to reconsider the alternative service plan they are providing, which is really an extra kick to the face. The fact that they have to do such a long shutdown is already tough enough (what were they doing when they shut it down on weekends for an entire year a few years ago???), but to add to it they are providing literally the bare minimum to compensate. 


Now the only line from Manhattan will continue to have to go to Hoboken, switch ends, and go back out, something which adds considerable time to a trip. At minimum there should be some service on the 33rd Street line operating direct toward Journal Square without going via Hoboken. Taking it a step further, it may even make sense to send it all the way to Newark. Exchange Place could get a shuttle service to Journal Square (assuming ridership to/from Newark/Harrison is higher than Exchange Place, which I bet it is on weekends).

The credit card charge for the extra tickets I bought showed up on my statement as "TM *METROSTARS."

If he leaves in the middle of the season the replacement has got to be Hamlett, Armas, or Wolyniec. Someone who knows the players and the system and can be as seamless a transition as possible. With the way the team is playing they will want to minimize the disruption to the extent they can.

#1323662 Metro - Montreal Game Thread

Posted by CurbYourNewUrbanism on 14 April 2018 - 01:06 PM

Montreal is not a marquee opponent by any means but why is the attendance so poor today? The weather is gorgeous. There should be at least another 5k there.

Makes you wonder if they are going to change their relationship with Ticketmaster (and their higher priced tickets and service fees) going forward. I guess with the business metrics they must think its better for them to have an empty stadium with pricier tickets than more fans there with seats that cost $10 less?

They sold tickets for half price for this game. And I havent checked but Im sure they are the usual $10-20 on Stubhub. Not sure what more they can do on the price front.

#1319589 Season Ticket Packges are here

Posted by CurbYourNewUrbanism on 27 February 2018 - 03:09 PM

I find the whole scarf thing to be baffling once it starts getting warm to be honest. There was a game last year where it was over 90 degrees outside and I still saw tons of people with scarves on. 


The scarf culture originates from places where it is chilly most of the season. Mine goes away once it hits 60 degrees or so.

In all of the interviews with Taxi he has been quick to say that he is happy playing for the Red Bulls even though he wants to move to Europe. I have zero fears about his commitment while he is here.

The rise of youth academies has caused a sharp decline in the importance of the SuperDraft and I think that will only continue.

^^He has always played CB for Panama (and his old club team). Not bad to have a first choice World Cup CB in our squad.
