#1377143 Robles dropped by Miami

Posted by rhactl7 on 09 January 2021 - 11:30 AM

RB should sign him to a 1-day deal so he can retire here.

lol at thinking RB would treat a team legend the proper way.

#1376007 New jersey for 2021

Posted by rhactl7 on 09 December 2020 - 05:01 PM

Its either gotta be red, or back to the classic white/red/white look. I don't want white with black trim...

#1374726 How will the season end? TSM after MPPF

Posted by rhactl7 on 15 November 2020 - 09:21 PM

BWP 90th+ min MLS Cup winning goal. Does heel clicks in front of an empty South Ward.

#1374615 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

Posted by rhactl7 on 12 November 2020 - 01:06 PM

hoping Gerhard and Deitrich can watch a playoff game at home or maybe Hartford....


I am loling at the idea of Deitrich (who has never attended a game) showing up at freezing cold Rentschler field in Novermber for a "Toronto home game" with limited capacity in the middle of a pandemic.

I still don't understand why anyone listens to those broadcasts in English. Like, I don't know a word of Spanish beyond the absolute basics, and I never ever watch those broadcasts in anything other than Spanish. They're fucking terrible in English. You could mic me up in my living room after 6 beers and I would do a better job.

If I ever hear Ramses Sandoval refer to the field as "the green rectangle" again, I'd consider casting myself off a bridge.

lol for real...if its not a Red Bulls game I'll usually just listen in Spanish too. It's just awful.

#1373582 Shield will NOW be awarded this year

Posted by rhactl7 on 20 October 2020 - 10:01 PM

Honestly, the reason we're discussing it again is because of the reaction to the announcement, but even more than that, it's because Dan posted that it was awarded in 2001 even though not everyone played the same number of games. I'll be honest and say I did not know that and that changed my mind on it. That's precedent in my opinion.


Our original idea was to protect the integrity of the Shield due to an imbalanced number of games played. Now that we know this has been handled already, we are looking at it again.


How could the committee not know that fact about their own award? That's less than 20 years ago.

#1372433 Are we a "massive club"?

Posted by rhactl7 on 30 September 2020 - 08:33 AM

A local bloke and his take...


Maybe it's because I've been an MLS fan since middle school and had been subjected to Europoseurs shitting on the league for so long, but it's so surreal to me hear fans a level away from the Premier League saying things like NY Red Bulls are a "massive club". And I know that players/managers say that stuff all the time, but what else are they going to say when they join the team? It's weird to me to hear supporters of these clubs saying that.

If I had to guess, most Europeans probably still think of us as the Red Bulls who had Thierry Henry, Tim Cahill, Marquez ect. And it's New York....I don't think many know about the change in direction the last 5 years, lack of spending, and tarping off half the stadium. At least we have a good reputation over seas....

Great to see this level of rumor. Shows we are hopefully in a new era with Thelwell.

Nice to finally get a W. Especially against DC. But honestly, they have a bunch of guys out and suck right now. So can't get too excited.


I agree with the consensus that White should be starting for the time being. Although where is Tetteh? If he is in the 18, why not throw him in? I liked the formation change though. Kaku is best when he is playing central IMO.

The MSG camera is so bad I can't even see the #s on the players.  Anyone else or just me?

#1369835 NYCFC banners in the South Ward

Posted by rhactl7 on 24 August 2020 - 06:44 PM

Fucking disgrace, everyone in here should send an email to the FO.

I already did and told them to cancel my season tickets. It was never even OK for them to use our stadium ONCE. Let alone multiple times. Let alone a now semi-permanent setup. With banners all over the place, covering our banners. AND in the South Ward. The FO need to know betrayed the fans feel. If we don't say anything now, this will be happening on a regular basis for the next 5+ years...

By far the least excited I've been for a Derby game.

#1362499 Stadium updates

Posted by rhactl7 on 28 February 2020 - 02:05 PM

Do it for beer at $150-200 for the season. I would probably do it. Hell you can sell it as an add on to the season tickets. It would be wonderful. Especially if they have self serving tabs. Or those bottoms up machines that fill the beer from the bottom up.

hahaha imagine...there would be beer showers after every goal
