def seems like I'm misunderstanding! Can you help explain it to me?
I know the history. I respect the sentiments about the RB purchase. But I don't see the logic behind clinging to metro as a name besides nostalgia purposes. My intent isn't to upset anyone, it's to just understand. I think it's cool to pay homage to our old name and break out the old shirts.... but not something to jump down somone's throat over.
Oh, and chants where you say "metro" instead of red bull just confuses the shit out of first timers at the stadium... I've popped lots of MLS cherries this season and had to explain it every time. That has nothing to do with anything, don't respond to that like Im saying not to chant 'metro'.. I think it's cool myself. But with 101 being the only place we see reference to metros anywhere, it's not a clear picture for newbs...
cuz (most) of the people who say metro have that air of "well we've been around longer than you have" and thumb their noses and look down upon at people who support the current regime. they play victim that "their" team was "taken away" and that an evil corporation is out to get them. i'm not saying EVERYONE, but many, close to most, who feel like that. and there's definitely pressure to "fit in."
there's even a small number of people who are so militant, they've gone on record saying "i don't support red bull, i support [the supporters club]. that's the only reason i come to games."
