"Theme" nights at RBA this year

02 March 2020 - 10:57 AM

does anyone have a link handy for the "themed" nights at RBA this year? I could have sworn i saw it either in an email or on their website, but I can't find it now.  I'm talking about special events like fireworks night (I think there were 2 home games with fireworks this year), etc. 


Ecuador vs Colombia @ RBA, Tues Nov 19, 8pm

16 October 2019 - 01:07 PM

Another overpriced international friendly coming up.  If they are going to keep charging ~$60 (with fees) for the cheapest seats, they really need to limit these to one per year.  I feel like this is the 3rd time Ecuador is playing here this year. 

 

I didn't use the Red member presale and I probably won't go unless I find a groupon or something cheaper. I don't put much stock in these pointless friendlies, and Ecuador is more likely to get blown out (they recently lost by 4 or 5 to Argentina) than they are to win


2019-20 UEFA Champions League

03 September 2019 - 07:06 PM

Groups are set, with a couple of good storylines to follow for casual CL fans like myself:

 

Group E: Can Jesse Marsch navigate Salzburg out of a very tough group (with Liverpool and Napoli heavy favorites to advance)?

Group G: Will Tyler Adams feature heavily for Leipzig in a well-balanced but winnable group? (Benfica/Lyon/Zenit)

Group H: Can Christian Pulisic turn around Chelsea's regular season woes? Will Tim Weah play the role of spoiler for Lille and send Pulisic packing?

 

Last year I won a nice chunk of change betting on Liverpool to win the CL in a pre-season futures bet. This year I opted for Atletico Madrid (23:1 odds) as they have a similar formula to Liverpool last year (relying heavily on youth rather than overpriced, over aged "super" stars).  I did throw in a smaller hedging bet on Juventus as well at 11:1 odds (I think Ronaldo still has a lot left in the tank and can single handedly will his teams to victory). 

 

So...who ya got?


Petke was fired by RSL

03 September 2019 - 04:46 PM

You really think our current owner - the north American sporting face of a global multi billion dollar conglomerate - will look at a guy fired because of a very public and borderline homophobic rant, and say "yeah that's the guy I want people to think of when they hear Red Bull" ?
