Have you ever even watched him play?


Only times I watched Orlando was when they played us. The searing image of Dwyer fouling Robles clouds my memory of the away match.

It's really not a big deal.


IMO, it IS a big deal, and a scam.  
There is no valid reason to condition Red Membership on auto-renewal.  Anytime a business seeks to automatically extract fees from customers, I believe it to be consumer fraud.

#1337892 Attendance slipping

this year appeared to be the worst attendance we've had since RBA opened. Yet, somehow, there's a 14% increase in ticket revenue. 


Suggests that a lot of tickets distributed in previous seasons were freebies or heavily discounted.

If we lose our best prospect for 3m, it'll go down as one of the worst outgoing transfers in our history.


We are lucky to get anything!  Soccer America says Adams is the only MLS youth prospect going to Europe in 2018, who brought a transfer fee.  Everyone else just waited to turn 18 and became free agents.

not winning MLS Cup in a way keeps making us better


So, our history of complete failure in the playoffs from 1996-2017 was the reason why we had the best MLS regular season ever, in 2018?


#1337761 Playoff format changes next year

Posted by JBigjake54 on 08 December 2018 - 12:23 PM

If single-elimination is good enough to crown the world champion, it's good enough for MLS.


As if FIFA could host a league competition with 16 to 32 teams in a month!
Why not just cancel the regular season?  Straight to the knock-out phase! 🙄

saying it doesn't work is just absurd.


Much of what Grelladinho says is absurd.

I just told them to hold on to my money for next year.


Now, that is optimism!
As if we will host the MLS Cup final next year!

IMO Jozy burned his bridges, with his petulant misconduct against us in Toronto.

disabuse fans of the notion that RB is the only team that does things "right" and are therefore entitled to be rewarded with an MLS cup.


After 23 seasons without a cup, you may be hard-pressed to find any fan who has a sense of entitlement.

You also did not blow a grand on a weekend in Atlanta.

If you have followed this team from Day One,
you remember that years ending in 9 are disasters.
1999: won 4 of 32 games (plus 3W-5L in shootouts).
2009: won 5 of 30 games, after making MLS Cup 2008.
