Just posting into the ether - perhaps someone in RB org will hear/care. 

 

It's really crappy how silent this team has become. Is this the worst year yet? I know media coverage is low, but last year we got "2-3 key acquisitions are planned" from Thelwell. This year feels like a complete guessing game. 

 

I know you don't want to set up expectations and then not achieve, but if they value the die hards so little anyway, why not toss us a non-specific nugget? If they don't care if we know their plans, then why would they care what we think about them?

They are setting records for Instagram posts, so I don't know what you are complaining about

I read this with sarcasm, but I'm not a big instagramer even if you meant earnestly.

The issue might be a Red Bull ownership thing. They clearly dont know what American sports fans value with non game/match content.

Other teams get innovative, give preseason perks, stream matches, engage the fans in a variety of arenas. Red Bull has only gone backwards in this area over the last few years, I dont get it.

Last year Thelwell and Struber had media availability prior to the first training session. This year they havent spoken on the record once, its not natural and not good.

TBF, that's pretty much a Luquinhas equivalent move

maybe we'll get to see the team in the 3 preseason matches in california since it's a competent organization running the show and not red bull

We can only hope that the Supporter Groups band together to protest, in a constructive manner, to get the point across to Austria. Silence from the core of the "hardcores" will only enable the RB mothership to continue to treat us like the red-headed step-child that came along in the divorce!! I don't want ESC or Viking Army to get their privilege's revoked, but we need to provide a united front against the complete disrespect we all get as a fanbase at this point!

Sure - but I think RB has been silent on even looking for a CAM like player. That's my real gripe. I understand not wanted to show your hand in a negotiation, but at this stage everyone has confirmed it but RB. I can deal with things falling through.

 

Not sure how it benefits them to be silent.

why would the team confirm something that is not yet a done deal. Its close but they wont talk until it gets over the line.

Like this: "We are looking for some help from outside the organization in the central attacking area of the midfield. We have few targets and hope to get it over the line by the beginning of the season."

Seriously, teams never comment on incoming players until the deal is done.

 

But the coverage of players already here? Of preseason itself? Absolute shit. Here, read this official summaries from

 

2004: http://www.metrofana...ory.jsp?ID=1729

2007: http://www.metrofana...ory.jsp?ID=4194

2010: http://www.metrofana...ory.jsp?ID=5322

2015: http://www.metrofana...ory.jsp?ID=6361

 

and compare to the shit we have now.
