    As if you’ll find the next Kaka on the street.

  3. lou Says:

    Brazilian day, portuguese radio show, games broadcasted in portuguese, soccer clinic in the ironbound section. Ok we get it, you’re clearly trying to attract the portuguese population that live near the new stadium. But how about doing something for the fans that you already have that aren’t portuguese, like a regular weekly television show, something that other teams have in this league. The FO is wasting all this time and energy on a gamble becuase it is yet to be seen if the portuguese fan base will embrace the team, while they neglect their existing fanbase that go to the games already.

  4. Mentz Says:

    They all just like Benfica and thats it…

    • lou Says:

      exactly, i mean the fans this club is fortunate enough to have, have had to sit through this nightmere of a season. Instead of doing something to benefit this preexisting fan base, they go and do things that only benefit a small portion of the fan base and for fans they don’t have yet.

    I’ll be there to have some caipirinhas and dance with a garota. It will most likely make me forget this nightmare of a season.

    I don’t get it with you people…you complain when they don’t promote, and now you complain when they do?

    I saw an ad for this festival and they said something like 50,000+ people are expected to be there, last time I checked that’s some pretty solid exposure.

    You complain about them not having a TV Show, well what is the driving force behind getting one of those? RATINGS…in order to get that you need to expand the fan base, not continually pat the old fans on the back for doing what they are supposed to do, support the team. I mean that is the definition of a fan right? The more fans there are, the stronger the desire for a TV show, which would then make it feasible, because lets face it – its not like production, on-air talent, etc. runs cheap.

    • lou Says:

      “I don’t get it with you people…you complain when they don’t promote, and now you complain when they do? ”

      When they promote? Are you serious? This FO is horrible at promoting. Do ou consider a bunch of kids running around in red bull gear promoting, becuase apparently our FO does. The only other “promoting” they’ve done this year has been targeted specifically at the portuguese community in the newark area. Most of these people are not going to come to our games, they are benfica fans, or porto fans, not red bull fans.

      “You complain about them not having a TV Show, well what is the driving force behind getting one of those? RATINGS…in order to get that you need to expand the fan base”

      Other MLS teams have TV shows, and i;m pretty sure they don’t do phenomenally when it comes to ratings, that doesn’t stop them from producing a show. And it doesn’t even have to be a show, it can be any number of things, but the FO should be doing something to show they appreciate the fans that have stuck it out through this horrible season.

      “not continually pat the old fans on the back for doing what they are supposed to do, support the team”

      What do you mean, not continually pat the old fans on the back? When did they start patting old fans on the back because i guess i missed that? All they have been doing this whole year is making excuses for the poor results.

      “The more fans there are, the stronger the desire for a TV show, which would then make it feasible, because lets face it – its not like production, on-air talent, etc. runs cheap.”

      If we apply the reasoning you’re using than it wouldn’t really make any sense to have a portuguese radio show. You’re saying a larger fan base will be able to sustain something like a tv show, well show me the large portuguese fan base that is going to be listening to this radio show. All we have are a bunch of portuguese people who happen to be fans of soccer teams not the red bulls, red bull took a leap and decided to start producing a radio show to attarct some of these peope. Why can’t the same be done for a weekly tv show? Yeah the fan base required to prodice a succesful tv show may not be available just yet, but they could take a leap of faith like they’re doing with this portuguese radio show but they aren’t doing that.

    • kiki da bahia Says:

      could this also be a set up to bring brazilian talent to the club? there’s a large brazilian population in newark and harrison.

      • lou Says:

        That could be a reason, but red bull already has an academy in brazil designed specifically to produce young brazilian talent, and i have yet to see one of these players go to either red bull team. Plus we haven’t signed one academy player yet even though our academy is loaded with talent, so the idea that this will bring more young brazilian talent to the club isn’t realisitc. Even if a brazilian kid does come to the academy and turns out to be phenomenal, we have yet to see a youth signing so this kid probibly won’t be any different for the forseable future..

      • kiki da bahia Says:

        Actually I was talking about a strong, quality DP not an academy prospect.

        Though Im not surprised that Osorio and Agoos haven’t tapped the Brazilian academy. They’re both lame ducks and would have a hard time convincing Brazilian golden child to come to MLS. Those kids have their sights set on the big time no doubt.

        O and A had their own troubles with RB academy products as well. Didn’t they try to sign Kassell to a weak-a** contract last year? And Dilly or somebody not too long ago and were rejected by MLS rules and regs?

        The RBFO has failed miserably in the past but if they ever hope to have a good franchise they better improve and fast. They don’t need to have rocks for brains forever. They’ll eventually get it together.

  7. lou's an idiot Says:

    seriously lou you are at it again with you sheer brilliance. are you ever happy man?

    you take it so personal that the rbny f.o. is promoting heavily to the portuguese and brazilian crowds that will surround the beautiful stadium in which they will call home for years to come. they are not wasting anything by trying to promote to this group. is it a risk? perhaps because as you said there is no promise that by doing this the people will come. HOWEVER, if you are them, how do you not do this? as people that watch the games either at the swamp or at home can tell, attendance is close to an all time low this season for a number of reasons. where are all these loyal fans you speak of that the front office is ignoring and taking for granted? they are not coming and for the ones that do, they do have priority for next season at RBA with their current ticket packages. does not seem like a slight at all in my eyes

    also , you want a weekly tv show, but the problem with that is you need to have a promising/consistant viewership to even think of a network picking you up. it is not as if the team is the Yankees or own the yes network and can just put shows together as they please and air them. they have to fight for air time with the other dozen teams that play pro in this market and often times GAMES themselves get pushed off msg onto msg plus or whatever the second msg channel is. plus, msg has done a bit more pre and post game coverage now as opposed to some of the past few seasons IIRC. the team also puts out a ton of video and news content on this very blog you see every day and the main website which kudos to them, had a very funny piece with the man mike petke this week!

    now i agree with you that there are more ways to promote the team then what is being done and even better ways. the running of the bulls thing while in theory seems like a simple idea that could have gained attention obviously was not received well and perhaps that just simply comes down to poor execution. if that same idea was in place with say 50 look a likes , minus the slow mo walking, i think it could have caught on better. sponsoring this brazil day event though with the number of soccer lovers in attendance is a no brainer. all these initiatives plus a signing of a major name such as a figo or the REAL ronaldo and not cr7 could add up to quite the turn around in the future.

    but seriously lou, are you ever happy?

    • lou Says:

      Listen, i don’t know who you are, but you are usually wrong about everything. I guess you think you’re funny targeting me, but you end up looking like an ass. Last time you failed to read my full post because you where so eagar to attack me, and you ended up being made fun of by every other poster.

      ” they are not wasting anything by trying to promote to this group. is it a risk? perhaps because as you said there is no promise that by doing this the people will come. HOWEVER, if you are them, how do you not do this?”

      No one said they shouldn’t be doing this, what i said was that it was risky (which you acknowledged) and said that maybe they should get their priorities in check. They’ve done numerous things in the past few months to target this group of fans that probibly won’t come to the games next season, yet they’ve done nothing except priority seating packeges for the few fans who have stuck it out through this monstrosity of a season. I’m all for the team expanding their fan base, but not if it means that they end up taking their current fans for granted.

      “where are all these loyal fans you speak of that the front office is ignoring and taking for granted?”
      ” they are not coming and for the ones that do,”
      You kind of answered your own question you idiot. The loyal fans are the ones that still come obviously. I never said there was a lot of them.

      “also , you want a weekly tv show, but the problem with that is you need to have a promising/consistant viewership to even think of a network picking you up.”

      I already answered this question. Yeah a tv show has to have a strong fan base in order for it to succeed because ratings count, and so yeah starting a weekly tv show would be a gamble. But like i just said before, red bull has created a portuguese radio show without any gaurantee that people will tune in to listen. So if they can take a leap of faith with some radio show that will only be appealing for a small group of people, why can’t they gamble on a tv show like many other mls teams have that will appeal to everyone?

      “the team also puts out a ton of video and news content on this very blog you see every day and the main website which kudos to them, had a very funny piece with the man mike petke this week!”

      Really this is what you call a ton of videos? Almost every post is about either a clip of a month’s worth of construction, or how red bull has done something to recruit more portuguese fans in the newark area. Almost every team has a blog, what red bull is doing here with this blog is nothing different.

      “sponsoring this brazil day event though with the number of soccer lovers in attendance is a no brainer. all these initiatives plus a signing of a major name such as a figo or the REAL ronaldo and not cr7 could add up to quite the turn around in the future.”

      I agree that this brazil day thing is a good idea because of the large number of soccer fans, i don’t really have a problem with it, but it seems like yet another thing directed towards a risky portuguese fan base that may or may not come to games next year.

      As for the am i ever happy question, are you serious? This team had been losing all season, and up until two weeks ago we were looking like the worst team in league history. Almost every signing has been a bust. Those don’t sound like things to be thrilled about. To make matters worse, i have idiots like you on my back all the time about absolutely nothing. Half your post agreed with the things i said, yet your name is “lou’s an idiot” which doesn’t make much sense. Since you agreed with me 50 percent of the time does that make you a half idiot? I am happy with the team’s performance the last two weeks and most of my posts these last few weeks have proven that. Maybe if you actually read what i wrote you would know that. But i’m still not satisfied with the way the FO markets itself, and i can’t really understand why anyone would be.

    • kiki da bahia Says:

      i’m with Lou’s an idiot. He does make a good point now and then but on this he’s just venting his misery.

      • lou Says:

        maybe i am just venting my misery, but “lou’s an idiot” never makes a good point. Half the time his posts attacking me make him look worse becuase he doesn’t read my posts thoroughly and than suggests something i already said. Also i’m not sure how someone who calls their self “lou’s and idiot” can agree with me as much as he did, that seems like a contradiction.

  8. Mike from linden Says:

    This club is horrible until they consistently get 20,000 in the seats for every home match. This is the biggest city in the world and the vast majority don’t even know that red bull has a soccer team much less go and watch them. I support the team but at some point who ever owns this has to realize that Ws gets people in the stands and players like Kandji and Angel get people to care and buy jerseys.

  9. lou Says:

    The ex- red bull academy star and usa youth nationial team attacking midfielder vincenzo bernardo is still a free agent and says he is looking for a new club after being released by napoli. He also said he is open to coming to the mls. At 19 what more do you need to sign someone? European experience, home grown academy prospect, quality attacking mid, free agent, and young.

  10. DS Says:

    Lou, if he is a former player from the American system, the Red Bulls proabably don’t actually get first dibs on him. There are rules about who gets the right to free agents coming into MLS. That’s why Toronto originally had the rights to Brian McBride (who left the league before they existed) and Chicago (the only team McBride would play for otherwise retire) had to trade for his rights. It’s not as easy as, “oh look, someone is available, lets go spend as much money as we want on a player and bring him in.” And before you say it, even if someone is a free agent there is still money to pay for him, salary, signing bonus, etc. There is so much more involved than someone just being a free agent and not minding playing in MLS.

    Also, ‘lou is an idiot’ had more good points than you did. There is not enough of a fanbase out there to make a tv show on any English language channel. Also, we don’t even know who is funding either the Portuguese radio or TV shows. Plus, I don’t know this for a fact, but I bet it’s cheaper to produce these shows for local Portuguese channels than on MSG, YES, SNY, WFAN or any other channel in the area. You keep saying things about other teams having shows, well I can guarantee you that the markets that every other team are in are cheaper than this one. Do you really think it’s expensive to air a show in Kansas City or Columbus or Salt Lake? Do you really think it’s anywhere near a reasonable comparison? You talk about this being such a huge market or prospective fans, but you have to take into account how difficult it is to fund exposure in this market.

    If you payed attention you would see that we currently get so much more coverage than we used to back when we were owned by Metro Media. Driving back from games I hear our scores on 660 and 1010, that would never happen 4 years ago. SBI comes to all of our home matches. Brian Lewis’s Post blog. All you see is one small marketing campaign that went on for like a week in March, and that’s all you think they do. I see players at events in the city and NJ. They do a lot of community outreach, not just toward Portuguese, that has only been this season. I could keep going with things that I have seen, which definitely isn’t everything they have done, but it’s not my fault that you don’t know about it.

    You have this very narrow view, and as was stated earlier, all you do is complain, no matter what is happening, nothing will ever be good enough for you. Do I think there is room for improvement? Of course I do. But I think they are doing a much better job than you think. And as Mike from Linden says, no amount of marketing will help if they are losing every week. That is why attendance is down, not cause of people walking around in slow motion with painted faces and jerseys on.

    • lou Says:

      I never said that signing vincenzo would be free, i obviously know that you have to pay for his salary and signing bonus, however there is no transfer fee. If we don’t get dibs on him because he is no longer an academy player than fine, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be going after him. The last report that was made about us signing vincenzo said that the red bulls weren’t even interested and that clearly is a mistake.
      “lou is an idiot” agreed with me on quite a few things, and the other points he made after that where not all valid so i’m not sure why you think that he made more sense than i did, other than the fact that usually disagree with me.
      As for being negative, like I said before this was a very negative year, up until two weeks ago absolutely nothing positive was happening in this club. There was nothing to be positive about, but after every win these past few weeks i have been praising players and richie williams so that doesn’t sound like negativity to me. When there is something to be positive about i will be positive like i’ve said many times before.

      Losing is going to result in the attendances dropping, but if you remeber correctly, even before we started losing this season the attendances where low. The home opener had the second lowest attendance in franchise history. These numbers weren’t due to losing becuase we had just made it to the MLS finals the year before, these poor attendance figures where due to poor marketing (slow motion walking among other things). And I’m still getting away from the originial point i had made before “lou’s and idiot” jumped in, nothing is being done for the group of fans that have stuck it out through this horrible season, instead all the team’s efforts have gone towards recruiting these portuguese demographic in the newark area. That’s fine they can try to recruit these people to come to games, but not if it means they take their current fans that they are lucky enough to have after a season like this, for granted.

  11. Metro boy till da day i die Says:

    IF the red bulls were winning, we would average 14k at giants stadium, being that we on a slump we doing like MAYBE 10K….when we go to read bull areana all the fans who stopped showing up to watch the team get a loss after loss, they will come back. I know for a fact that 14,15 k people that attend the games at giants stadium will def be going to RBA…

    As for the harrison area, it will def bring in thousands of more fans, harrison LOVE soccer and so does newark (right next door to harrison), people from around the area will def show up to the games, mayb not to support the red bulls, but just to be able to see some soccer action in what will be the best stadium in the U.S …

    We will hit 20k in RBA thats a no brainer, NO MATTER how bad we did this season. LOTS of old fans from N.Y will be coming to the match as the train drops u off 2 blocks away from stadium only, even ESC will grow by hundreds now because of this..people dont only stop showing up cuz we sucked ass this year, they just hate coming to giants stadium and pay ridicoulos prices… at rba it will be differnent.

    Also we will be making a HUGE signing for the opening day, who it is , no idea but a new DP will diff bring in a ton of more fans. If you think RBA will not be able to fill sits, sorry but u bugging… anything NEW in NJ/NY will sell out quick

    Im sorry if this crap is hard to understand, im tired as balls and didnt wanna wait till mouring to post lol.. hopefully u do understand though…ONE MORE THING.. Lou and Lous an Idiot – Cant’ we all just get along? =)

  12. DS Says:

    Lou, I didn’t say they aren’t trying to get this guy, I have no idea who they are trying to get, but you always make it sound like it’s so easy to sign players and that if you know of these obscure players who are available and then they aren’t signed you seem to think it means that the FO is dumb and failing, while you’re the smart one finding all these deals they are missing out on.

    Also, you say there aren’t many fans left that come to matches, and that most fans stopped coming, well then why would the team market towards the fans that have turned their back on the team? I wouldn’t. Those that are still around will be coming next season, so I don’t understand how it would be beneficial to pander to fans who are already there and will still be there? It financially makes no sense. I think you will agree with me that the best way to respect or thank (or whatever way you want to say it) the fans that have stuck with the team is by ending the season well and signing better players so that we can succeed on the pitch next season, not with commercials or marketing.

    I don’t understand why you complain that they are trying to grow the fan base, although you seem to understand why they are doing it, because that is where the stadium was built. If it was in an Italian area they would try and promote on RAI, if it was your general white suburban NJ town they would also take a different route. You need to understand that the team is not going to make a TV show or radio show in english, that’s not going to happen. If you want a show then start a petition for MSG to make it. There used to be a soccer show on MSG, rating were terrible and it was canceled. They don’t even have a general sports news show on MSG, let alone soccer specific. And what content would be on that show exactly? Everything you see at game and read on here or on SBI? There is only so much happening to report on. There is no Portuguese website or rumor site or radio content, there is no way for that community who lives within walking distance of the stadium to learn anything about the team. I don’t understand how RB couldn’t focus on them heading into the opening of the stadium.

    Metro boy, I agree with you that the people coming from the Harrison area might not necessarily be fans of RB or MLS in general but just soccer fans. And I am fine with that. I think that’s how many of our fans started but after going to matches you get to know a team and start to like them and so on. I think if we can get them to come, and if we are a decent team next season it could turn them into RB fans.

    • lou Says:

      “Lou, I didn’t say they aren’t trying to get this guy”
      It doesn’t matter if you didn’t say it, because that is what the team said maybe two weeks ago. They weren’t interested in him and weren’t even considiring im and that to me would be a big mistake. Also failing to sign these guys has nothing to do with me thinking the FO is dumb and failing. The FO is dumb and has failed they have proven this throughout the year, maybe they’re getting better that remains to be seen.

      “Also, you say there aren’t many fans left that come to matches, and that most fans stopped coming, well then why would the team market towards the fans that have turned their back on the team? I wouldn’t. ”

      You must have misread again. You don’t market towards the fans you already have, so that’s how i know you misread what i said. What i wrote was that the team should be doing something to benefit the fans they have, they can still market towards the portuguese community in hopes of getting them to come to games, but making all these improvements that only benefit them is not fair to all the other fans that make up the majority of the fanbase. A portuguese radio show, game broadcast, is exactly what I mean. These things are fine by themselves, but when you devote all your resources to a small demopgraphic it becomes unfair to everyone else. Hopefully the FO thinks up of some ideas that appeal to everyone else, but that hasn’t happened yet.

      “I think you will agree with me that the best way to respect or thank (or whatever way you want to say it) the fans that have stuck with the team is by ending the season well and signing better players so that we can succeed on the pitch next season, not with commercials or marketing.”

      Thankyou for saying that, that’s what i was trying to get across the whole time. The tv show idea i threw out there was merely a suggestion because a lot of other teams have it and it would benefit everyone, but signing better players is also another alternative that hasn’t happened yet (one of the reasons why i say this team’s management has been incompetent). I would like this team to start doing things that benefits everyone, not just the portuguese community, but they haven’t done this yet so i’m understandably dissapointed.

    • kiki da bahia Says:

      DS- you’re on point with this. RBFO marketing to the local pop/demographic around the stadium is so obviously the correct strategy it’s actually a non-issue.
      I just hope that they succeed and succeed well because my beloved Brazilians are the best fans around. They know how to party, they bring lots of drumsand other instruments, dance samba, and the girls are the most beautiful. Brazilians bring the Axé, the spirit, positive energy!

      If RBFO buys a strong, quality, Brazilian DP… we will finally have O Jogo Bonito.

      • lou Says:

        Exactly it is no a no issue, the debate isn’t over whether they should be marketing towards this portuguese group in newark or not, because i have said this is a good idea in my previous posts.
        The debate is over (or at least should be over) whether it is fair to only do things that benefit this group, and to devote all the team’s resources towards them. Radio shows, and tv shows in portuguese only appeal to this small portguese group of prospective fans and that’s what red bull is doing now.
        The best thing to do would be to sign a high profile, talented, DP that will not only attract portuguese fans but also make the team better which is good for everyone, this coupleded with these marketing techniques the club is already using would be a win/win. Hopefully the FO does all this, but with the way the FO has handled things in the past, I am less than optimistic.

  13. USMNT FRANK Says:

    Lou,

    Why do you seem to think that this is the only fanbase they are marketing to? Its not like there is an AMERICAN festival they can partner up with, so why not this one?

    Also, how much do you think it costs to put a radio show on a local Portuguese station? Probably close to NOTHING! IF the English speaking channels don’t want it or won’t buy in, I see no reason for them to do this.

    You keep mentioning the team doing things to benefit the fans that they have? Ok well someone mentioned it above – PRIORITY SEATING – which rewards people who have purchased plans in the past. They also didn’t use PSL’s like the Yankees, Jets or Giants. IIRC the team also has some pretty cool giveaways at matches, which is a CLEAR REWARD for its current fans who come to the games.
    Please tell us what YOU are looking for?

    • lou Says:

      I told you what i was looking for but since i guess you can’t read that well i’ll post it again.

      “The best thing to do would be to sign a high profile, talented, DP that will not only attract portuguese fans but also make the team better which is good for everyone, this coupleded with these marketing techniques the club is already using would be a win/win.

      How’s that, do you know what i am looking for now.

      “Why do you seem to think that this is the only fanbase they are marketing to?”

      Show me something that says otherwise. Everything on here has been about the portuguese community, there has been nothing on this blog that has said anything about any other fanbase.
      It doesn’t matter how much a portguese radio show costs, and i’m not saying they shouldn’t do things to attract these portuguese fans, but they should be doing things for other demographics as well instead of devoting all their resources to one group. And as far as english radio shows or tv shows go, maybe they aren’t the most cost effective things to do fine, I acknowledged that previously. I also said that it was merely a suggestion, i was trying to think of things that appeal to everyone. Getting Quality players, especially ones that are portuguese, will kill two birds with one stone. They will draw portuguese fans to games, and they will improve the quality of the team which i something that is good for all fans not just portuguese ones living in newark.

    is vincenzo bernardo any good lou just out of curiosite do you think we are going to get figo any time soon proboably not though

    • lou Says:

      I think we might actually get figo just because there is a high chance that we will sign a portuguese player, and there aren’t many out there. As for bernardo, he has played for the youth nationial teams, and is currently being scouted by many english clubs, I can’t say for sure that he is good becuase i haven’t seen him play in person but if i had to put money on it i would say he is more than talented enough to play in the mls.

    Lou, you are now saying that this is a good marketing idea and that the only think they need to do to placate their current fanbase is sign a big name player? Then what the hell are you complaining about. Stover has stated multiple times that they are looking to bring someone in. Do you want him to show you who is on their list? Do you want them to put their dealings out in the public so that there is more pressure on everyone or that some other team could come in and mess it up? Do you want them to sign someone right now when they don’t have the cap room? Do you even know what today’s date is? The European transfer window has closed.

    Stop searching for things to complain about. We have won our last 2 matches, lets talk about what we will need to do next weekend to continue winning. KC haven’t had a very good season, and we did out play them in April. Maybe with 11 on the field past the first minute we’ll be able to get a result.

      If you want us to stop argueing, than why bring up things that are going to prompt me to continue the agruement? Plus orignially when i started “complaining” i hadn’t thought about the idea of signing a big name portuguese player, i was suggesting things like tv shows because that was the first thing that came to mind. You suggested the portguese player thing as something that can benefit everyone and i agreed with you. After that i stopped “complaining” because i realized there is still a chance that the team will sign a portuguese player.

      “Do you want them to sign someone right now when they don’t have the cap room? Do you even know what today’s date is? The European transfer window has closed. ”

      First of all we have quite a bit of cap room right now, we also have a slot open on the roster, and i know the european tranfer window is closed, however becuase bernardo is a free agent and has been released by napoli, we can still sign him.

  19. Lou isa moron Says:

    Gotta agree with Lou’s a idiot, everytime i check RBR i see Lou crying like a baby about the smallest thing the club did wrong. Why dont you just appreciate the coverage this blog gives us and the fact that were being blesses with the best SS stadium in the country.

    • lou Says:

      Nice “lou’s an idiot” you have no one agreeing with you ever except DS, so you’ve created a little online body to essentially agree with yourself. Do you actually have any thoughts of your own? All you do is critique me on nothing, and reiterate things other people have said while claiming them as your own ideas. How old are you? becuase right now you’re acting like a five year old that stummbled across a computer and decided to start blogging.

      “Why dont you just appreciate the coverage this blog gives us and the fact that were being blesses with the best SS stadium in the country.”

      SS stadium hasn’t been completed yet, and I am very thankful for the stadium as i’ve said before. I can still be happy about some things and upset about others. Besides the stadium construction, This season has not given me much to be positive about, and I along with quite a few others have vented our anger on this blog. If you have a problem with that than tough.

  20. lou's an idiot Says:

    I have plenty of ideas of my own actually as I have said them and used to counter the points that you have attempted to make. I don’t need to defend myself to a kid who has not even graduated high school but if that will satisfy you Lou then maybe I’ll give it a go so you can STFU already. I do find it rather amusing though how you respond to every single post like it is your life and claim to be such a big fan but hate basically everything Red Bull FO does , the way the team has performed (minus the last two weeks), and think because the team hasnt signed european players under contract with other clubs that they are failing miserably.

    You want some of my ideas? I think Richie should be given a chance as head coach. He knows the league rules, players, etc and the players seem to respond to him well. I think the Beckham experiment proved that euro coaches dont promise results no matter what the price tag is. I also think that MLS should bring back the reserve division and increase the roster and cap size so that all the players, like your boy Nick Zimmerman, can make a respectable wage.

    I also think that the league should clear up the Academy confusion and make clearer rules so there isnt confusion over situations like Duka, Kassel, Bernardo, Exantus, etc. The goal of MLS all along has been to promote the game in this country and increase the depth of the USMNT. I think it is essential that they allow the clubs that have invested time and money like RBNY, like DC, like Chivas, to see return on their investments without having it be such a risk if it does not work out.

    Are these ideas ok with you Lou or are you going to say that I stole them from you or somebody else who SHARES these ideas?

    • lou Says:

      I respond to all the comments like it is my life? It’s funny how similiar we seem to be becuase here you are responding to every comment i make. And it’s interesting because you are responding to my comment, telling me your opinions, and they seem to be the exact same opinions i have on those topics.
      I have said that the league needs to clear up the academy confusion, that the players should be making more money, that the rosters should be expanded, that beckham is a joke, that richie williams is a good coach. It seems that on every single thing you can possibly have an opinion on, i agree with you. Yet you seem to have devoted your purpose on this blog to trying to make me look stupid and i don’t really understand why (not to mention that you usually come out looking like an ass). It doesn’t seem like we disagree on much, the only difference is that you for some reason think you’re better than me. Yeah i didn’t graduate high school yet but i seem to articulate my ideas more than adiquately.
      And i am a big fan of this team, i can be a supporter of this club and still disagree with the decisions the FO has made. They haven’t signed any talented european players or any truly talented players for that matter, and that in itself is tolerable. But than not only do we pass on player after player (alecko eskandarian comes to mind, we could have got him for next to nothing and we would have hade another forward on the roster but we said we weren’t interested) but than we sign players who aren’t worth their weight in shit. The osorio coaching situation was completely mishandeled by the club, there is no reason why someone who is doing that badly should have his job for that long. There past marketing techniques were largely ineffective and the home opener’s attendance is proof of that.
      I could go on and on about the mistakes this FO has made in just the last year, but since I’ve pointed them out at one time or another i don’t feel the need to repeat myself. There is alot this team needs to do to start being taken serioulsy and this year proves that point. The whole “sporting division” needs to be remodeled and competent soccer minds need to take over. Mr. stover said red bull is planning on doing that and hopefully they will, but if they continue to make bone headed mistakes I don’t see why i should have to be okay with them.
      This is a blog, there is a comment section for a reason, and i’ll use it as i see fit. If that means i end up praising richie williams and the team for their performance one week and than “complain” about something stupid the front office has done the next week than so be it.

  21. Cindy Says:

    i love how this is what every other RBR post devolves into. geez.

    also i love the idea of the Red Bulls co-sponsoring this event, sounds like a great one and if we bring in new fans that’s always good. but regardless it’s nice to see the team out there in the community! especially since brazilian culture is so soccer influenced

    thanks lou hoplefully a good player will come in the neir future

  23. TMK Says:

    lou please do us all a favor and retire from posting

    • lou Says:

      what exactly do you post? And everythingI say on here is valid, if it wasn’t i wouldn’t have people agreeing with me. Why not post things that are constructive instead of just signing on here to say stupid things?

      • Lou is a moron Says:

        “And everything I say on here is valid, if it wasn’t i wouldn’t have people agreeing with me. ”

        You know a lot of people agreed with Hitler too….

      • lou Says:

        “You know a lot of people agreed with Hitler too….”

        Yeah and DS and “lou is an idiot” agree with you (if you and him aren’t the same person). So what are you saying? Because someone agrees with a person that makes that person hitler? Nice logic… and you call me the moron?

      • Lou is a moron Says:

        no, what I’m saying is that just because some people agree with you it doesn’t make you right or give you credibility. next time I post I will keep things simple for you, so you don’t struggle to understand my remarks.

      • lou Says:

        I understood what you where saying perfectly, I just wanted you to state what you ment more clearly so that i could point something out (and becuase i wanted to mock you, I couldn’t help myself).
        You say I’m not automatically right just becuase people agree with me, well the same can be said for you.

        “lou please do us all a favor and retire from posting”

        You’re not right just becuase DS, TMK, and “lou’s an idiot” (aka you), agree with you. Yet you are trying to push me to stop posting, I would like to know what gives you that right? Have i said that DS, “lou’s an idiot”, and TMX should stop posting becuase they have no idea what they are saying?
        Trust me, you don’t have to keep things simple for me, just worry about yourself and your weak, but humorous comparisions.

  24. DS Says:

    TMK, I’ve been refraining from posting as not to incite Lou.

    Lou, it’s not just me that disagrees with you.

    • lou Says:

      You’re right it’s not just you, it’s TMK who just started posting on here now to tell me to stop posting, “lou’s an idiot” and his other alias”lou’s a moron”. That’s a solid group of companions. Those guys can’t even dress themselves.
      Btw, not sure if you saw my post earlier, but we could sign bernardo, i do know what date it is, and becuase he is a free agent we don’t have to worry about the european transfer window being closed. Furthermore, we have at least one roster spot open (not sure on the exact number) and we have quite a bit a cap space. Since you seem to think every player i suggest i expect us to sign, i will say before hand that I’m simply putting a name out there partially for amusement and partially because i hope someone in the FO reads this.

  25. Lou is a moron Says:

    FIRE AGOOS AND LOU!

  26. DS Says:

    Lou, I have never posted under any other name than DS and I would thank you to not make any accusations otherwise. Despite disagreeing with you on a regular basis I am glad to have you as a fellow fan and fellow poster despite your views on many things. It is the passion you show that I appreciate and I feel has been lacking from most fans during this difficult season.

    I did see your post earlier, and yes a free agent can be signed, but as I posted earlier there are still fees involved in signing any new player even if there is no transfer fee. Also, there are rules and regulations regarding which MLS team would have first crack at signing a player if he have once played in the US. You say there is cap space available, and I agree there probably is, but I doubt there is the $350,000 necessary to sign another DP at this moment. I was not saying there is no room to sign anyone at all, just not a DP.

      “I have never posted under any other name than DS and I would thank you to not make any accusations otherwise.”

      I never did make that accusation DS.

      • DS Says:

        “Yeah and DS and “lou is an idiot” agree with you (if you and him aren’t the same person).”

        Reading this, that is what I thought you said.

      • lou Says:

        I can see where the confusion is coming from, but When i said (if you and him aren’t the same person) i was referring to “lou is a moron” becuase I was directly talking to him, that’s who i ment by “you”.
