Hopefully there is a conflict between the Yanks and NYCFC because that would mean there is a baseball season. With the way this is going and the build up needed to get players ready, have to wonder if baseball happens in 2020.

I think there will be MLS and MLB seasons, even if not before July 1. Personally, I think the NBA and NHL are done. Not sure you can bring players back for playoffs if they havent played competitively for months. Recipe for injury.

Leagues that play outdoors have a better chance of coming back than leagues that play indoors.

RB charged them $400k per game for CCL, but if they're playing MLS games, you have to imagine they'd have more than 5k people show up. If the upper bowl has to open or more concession stands, the rent would increase as well.

I doubt that RB can charge more than the rent for the recent sold-out USWNT match.

I hope MdG ... tells them to ...play somewhere else.


Garber may have the last word in this.

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

Agreed. Seems to me that this wouldn't be a case of RBNY and NYCFC sitting down at the negotiating table. Would be mandated by MLS.

Why is that?

Sky Blue will need some dates as well.


Red Bull, Sky Blue, NYCFC, triple-headers? Maybe throw in another Ecuador friendly, as well?

Rentschler Field is 108 miles from YS.
RBA 20 miles, City Field 10 miles.

what's your point?

Wishful thinking. It is not going to happen.

I know MLS is single entity and all, but how can MLS force a team to let another team use their stadium? Legitimately asking. If RB flat out said no, how exactly could Garber, or anyone for that matter, force them to allow the use of their stadium? It's not like MLS owns RBA or anything.

That point I'm not disputing and I honestly do not know the answer.

 

My point was more if, hypothetically, RBNY said they would allow NYCFC to play at RBA, I don't think it would be a negotiation of price. I think MLS would mandate it be the market rate of RBA.

Well, there is definitely one way to find out!
MLS lawyers will review the league agreements to see what authority Garber has in these matters. There is little love between MLS & RB, so I would expect him to rule in favor of NYCFC, if at all possible.
Penalties for continued RB refusal?
Perhaps fines, suspension of the franchise?

Absurd. Why would RB refuse potential millions from the blue fuckers? It's all for Uncle Dieter's bottom line!

I think you just answered your question with your first 6 words: every team is literally owned by the league.

Do you think that Dieter makes money from RBNY?

There is a reason our budget has been lowered in recent years.
