The Yankees have 27 WS Titles and YS has Monument Park.  The Red Sox have their history and Fenway/ Green Monster.  Man Utd has 20 titles and Old Trafford has the Sir Alex Stand, and so on... you got the idea.

 

We've got 3 Supporters Shields and RBA has the iconic de Grandpre Tarps.

 

They are still there.  Is this just a fact of life going forward or is there any real info/scoopsthat anything interesting will ever be done in those sections?   Any stupid stuff - halftime tours of the tarps - guided by Marc - for curious fans?  Date night under the tarps? Anything?

Maybe one day the "The de Grandpre Tarps" will become as well-known as the "La Brea Tar Pits".

They are just there temporarily as a necessity while they work on stadium improvements.  Remember?

The tarps should have 10,000 faces on them.
Either faces of the 10k fans who actually show up,
or a repetitive pattern of past FO execs.

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

in 2015, this shmuck set out a plan for us to be "selling out every game in 5 years". 5 years later and we have gone the complete opposite direction, tarping off 25% of the stadium. The on-field results have been there, so you can't blame that. How this guy still has his job is completely unfathomable. Could he possibly do any worse if he tried???

Imagine if he fired the best coach in US Soccer history.......wait

The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

Galaxy brain take: much easier to sell out if you tarp off a bunch of seats...
