Perhaps if the club was playing professional level soccer my mindset would match. Its not a serious comment. Short of a miraculous deep run into the playoffs the season cannot be judged successful at all. We cant beat Colorado at home...we are going into Atlanta and Yankee Stadium and having success? I guess with the knockout format anything can happen. I hold little hope that we are winning a Cup. It would be a small victory to at least see NYCFC fail in that endeavor. If they win a Cup before us (when?) it will be absolutely devastating for the Red Bulls in the metro area.
Yeah, that's a very high school/college level mindset.
Would obviously like us to win a title before NYC, so them losing in the playoffs is great. But judging our season a success because NYC also lost is just ridiculous.
