I was a Metrostar supporter from day 1. Loved Gio Saverese, hated Ruben Dario Hernandez. My favorite era was the days of Cleetus. I had every red/black stripe kit that came out. Even though we were frequently inept I really felt that I began to "bleed" the Metrostar colors. Then in a flash those colors were gone and my team had become a corporate shill. I have tried hard for five years, but I can't bring myself to support these colors. I feel like I am supporting Sprite FC or the Keebler Elves. As supporters, we are asked to get behind the colors and logo of a team. Yes we cheer on the players, but players come and players go. How many players were on this team even 3 years ago? So we are left with the team image. IF that team image is just crass marketing how can we get wrapped up in its identity? I for one can't. Metro is dead, and I now await the coming of the Cosmos.
