And MORE fun
Lure? Doesnt that mean like 'hijack'? Ridiculous.. who ever heard of a nice city like Baltimore doing that?
And who would they 'lure'? I mean every freaking team either has a SSS or is building one, or has a stadium/owner tie.. right? Right?

WTOP? on scene of Danny Szetela residence, is he moving out?
okay, forgive me; it's late and I'm stupid.
Why for BUFC?
I know.. you dont do links.
Neither the District nor any of the DC Metro counties are willing to pony up public funds to support a SSS for DCU. DCU loses money every year that they use RFK and if they're going to move, a move to Baltimore would at least keep half of their current fans attending games and would bring in those Baltimore soccer fans who don't regularly attend DCU games today. i.e., after a blip in attendance due to being the "new thing" attendance levels would probably approximate the current levels.
As for the name change, if you want to bring in new Baltimore fans, you can't name the club "DC anything"; there is an understated sports rivalry between the cities; some Baltimore soccer fans don't support DCU purely on principle; they'll support the Union first (Philly is ok, Pittsburgh is not).
Re: RE: BUFC?
That and on the east coast, unlike in the rest of the country, you cannot have a team play 40 miles away from its "home".
I would also add that DC and Bmore are light-years apart in so many ways, not just in sports. Well, except for a corrupt city hall...
RE: Re: RE: BUFC?
Wow! I'm going to start handing out ADD meds to everyone. This thread should be renamed "The Tangent".
Re: RE: Re: RE: BUFC?
uh, no.... Look at the thread starting post: "Collins John signs with..."
That, in itself, labels the thread to the discerning reader, of which I assume you consider yourself .. one... 'miscellaneous crap.'
Do you REALLY think after all this time I dont know how to organize?
And BTW... didnt ANYONE watch that video I linked. TWICE ????
'Blanco finishes packing...'
'Szetela moving to...?'
If you did dont you get it? I thought it was hilarious... maybe you guys think it's normal.
RE: Re: RE: Re: RE spect, just a little bit
I'm with the distinguished gentleman from Evansville on this one. My confusion last night -- well, that confusion that didn't result from my medicaton -- stemmed from trying to extrapolate BUFC from CJ signing with the Fire.
On the other hand, I'm only posting now to clear out the subject line so that folks can see what the thread is about.
RE: MLS Offseason BS Thread
Screw yer 'spect. See it and raise ya one.
Now I think I made it clear.. are we gonna have some fun?
From the Crew GBS catchall-thread. Yeah, he has his own
Adn the answer from
Sounds right to me. Spec in Columbus for two years that Guille would retire at Crew and start his coaching career here.
I thought that was dumb. But maybe not.
Talk about a redundant thread title...
Talk about a redundant reply that justifies the thread title..
Third Time's the Charm
Mathis back with Galaxy.
And I mean the Charm, literally. He'll do well.
RE: Third Time
He's obviously after that "most MLS transfers one player" trophy currently held by Jeff Cunningham.
What two things do these guys have in common?
1. Great talent
2. No class

added: Look at Jeffro's production. Any casual fan seeing that would head scratch big time.
