Thank you. This is long overdue.

Awesome. A place to get away from the people who don't wanna hear it anymore. Good for us, good for them.

Right.
I'm not talking about everyone here. I'm not even talking about everyone who disagrees with me - that's fair enough. I'm talking about the few idiots who don't want to hear about or talk about the real world of RBNY anywhere, and feel the need to inject that into any thread that comes up about it. Is it a dead horse? Yes. You know what else is a dead horse? The area's only major pro soccer team being a total laughingstock in every way.

I'm overjoyed that there's a separate forum now, something I kinda wished for in a couple different threads over the years. I imagine that guys like metros11 and onionsack, who think differently from me but at least are able to say something sensible about it, might drop in now and then, while the Cuckoo Contingent that belongs on Bigsoccer will stay far, far away. They are the "suckers" I was referring to.

In other words, this is just great. Thanks Dan.

That's fine. Just your original comment rubbed me the wrong way. No harm. Carry on.

It was a little harsh and over the top, and I'm sorry for that. It doesn't help the discussion I'm hoping to have with people here.

Ya know, I really don't like baseball at all. It's a waste of time to see overpaid people -who call themselves athletes- sit for more than half a game. I just don't think it's an impressive sport at all.

But one thing you won't see me do is go to a Yankees discussion and call all the people who do follow the game delusional.

just sayin..,

When have I ever started off a discussion by talking about the people who support this thing? Some of them I consider friends, or at least like-minded souls. Yes, I've probably spilled a little criticism on a few fans along the way - especially the ones that are doing Dieter's job for him and think everyone else ought to too - but that's bound to happen. Speaking for myself, I try really hard not to make it personal. I get a little aggrieved like anyone else when people misread what I write, though.

My focus is on the organization, the setup, the hapless assumptions about what RB is bringing here (Franz Beckenbauer, wo ist du?) and things like that.

Me, I love soccer (among other sports). And I love the area I come from. No matter where I may roam, I can't see myself rooting for a team from somewhere else. So I really love the idea of having a pro soccer team from my area to cheer for.

It would be nice to have that back someday.
