In Topic: Stadium updates

Im not a fan of the mobile only option, especially for season ticket holders. I thought the card system that they have had in place is a much better option and I'm disappointed they are going this route.

By utilizing mobile only ticketing, they are saying "f*** you" to the people like me to who do not own a smartphone. I do not even know how to use a smartphone, nor do I want to know. When I attended Florida Panthers at Philadelphia Flyers this past November, I was thankful that they allowed me to bring the printed P.D.F. of my stubhub ticket.


The fact that the stereotypical sports fan knows how to use a smartphone does not give the powers-that-be the right to impose that stereotype on all sports fans.

It has been rumored that Chicago Fire will move to Soldier Field in 2020 (link), which I am in favour of, as it will empower Chicago to become the next Portland, by being located in Chicago proper, making it easier for fans to get to the stadium. It has also been rumored that Chicago Fire will legally change their name to Chicago City Football Club, which I am against, just as I was against seeing the Seattle M.L.S. franchise calling itself Seattle Republic/Seattle Alliance.

Such franchises as Portland and Seattle also have downtown stadiums, an advantage which suburban franchises such as Chicago Fire (Bridgeview, Illinois) and F.C. Dallas 96 (Frisco, Texas) simply do not have.

I can't believe people told me that this was going to be the best burger in the world. I paid extra to have two patties instead of one, and yet there still was barely any meat on this lousy fast food hamburger (I dare say that I easily could have purchased a better hamburger and French fries from Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers, which is pretty sad). If you have never been to In N Out Burger before, then trust me; you are not missing out on anything.

 MLS is bush league and soccer is a niche still.

Not in the Pacific northwest.
