In Topic: Sky Blue not playing all their games at RBA in 2020

Owners (Gov. & Tammy Murphy) lost $1.1 Million on Sky Blue in 2019, $7M since buying it:

That said, even amidst a pandemic, NWSL franchises have never been worth more. And if they decided to sell the club, they could probably recoup those losses and then some. You don't own these teams to turn massive profits, you own them so you can sell them on at double or triple the value.

Actually not bulls at all.

Next thing, you're gonna tell me the team plays in Harrison, New Jersey and not New York.

Proactive against cyber-squatting?

I mean, it has the two red bulls in it, which is clearly their mark. Not exactly something you can squat on. And it costs money to file one of these trademark applications. A company—even one with limitless resources like Red Bull—wouldn't just do them for the fuck of it.

Worth noting that Red Bull GmbH did trademark this image last November. Far as I know, they have not used it for anything this year. Why they did so is anyone's guess. 


In Topic: "MLS is Back" Tournament Begins 7/8

10 June 2020 - 02:14 PM


I've been thinking about this one ever since the tournament became a possibility. Group stage games are regular season because they count in the regular season standings. If we make the "postseason", I think I'll make those as Playoff games, sort of like Merconore and CCL are mushed into International (and Leagues Cup would have been). I don't want to create a new game type for a one-off tournament.

I suppose you could just as easily classify them as Open Cup, or simply just "Cup" games, as there's almost certainly going to be no Open Cup this year, whereas there's a better probability of there being some kind of MLS Cup and MLS Cup Playoffs in November, December… the league hasn't ruled out having it in January of next year!
