I hear you have Mr Heck on your next broadcast.

Can you ask Mr Heck if he sees the 'New York Red Bulls' name as a help or a hindrance to expanding the fanbase of the Tri-State's only MLS franchise, and then explain why he thinks it helps :cool:

Why bother? If he says it's a hindrance, people that hate the name (yourself included) will respond "see! see! even Heck agrees we're right!" and if he says it's not those same people will respond "Did you see that spin! Look how he lies! Stupid NBA guy!".

It's a no win proposition and it can be seen from miles away.

This is true for any question he's asked. Heck can announce a cure for cancer and bring in a basket of puppies and people here will still say: "What about a cure for AIDS?" and "He hates cats!"

Oh... and Dave says "strategery." Seriously.

As always...a great show. Many thanks for the dedication.

Heck does like to use his "metrics" to answer any question regarding detailed numbers.

Heck claims a lot of the 125/126/127 no shows were due to ticket brokers buying the season tickets so that they can make a buck on the Man Utd all star game. The game wasn't announced until March of 2011. So is Heck saying these seats were unsold before this announcement? Or that the 2011 no-shows were a continuation of the 2010 no-shows?

Good news that Heck is actually delving into individual season ticket performance and weeding out the brokers.

Looks like we're getting NYRB (I'm guessing Henry) on the cans of redbull. A "connecting the brand" type of thing. Or simple put an easy form of advertising for NYRB.

Chris Heck does come over as a salesman, but he does sound like he is trying. He seems to be willing to push his ideas and targets getting the stadium full. Does seem frustrated by the MLS scheduling, not much he can do about it.

I'm I still pissed he raised my season ticket by over a third? Yes, I am. Could it help make the stadium more full? I guess we'll find out next year.

No word on whether my now expensive seat is getting a cup holder...very disappointed Mr Heck :D

Don't like Mr. Heck comparing RBNY to Yankees. "Well the Yankees play games in the day time during the summer." Great response by Fish, "Yea, but they don't run 6 miles during a game. "

He sounds very confident in his decisions, almost borderline cocky. We'll see how he does this year.

Great show again guys.
