When the new season starts, I will no longer be a Revs fan. I’ve supported the club since year two (I was out of the country during year one). I’ve been through some thick and a lot of thin. I’d never stop supporting a team because they had a crappy year or several... otherwise I would’ve left 10 years ago. I’ve never switched a sports team since I was 11 years old, after my first visit to Fenway made me a Sox fan. But the way this organization is being mis-run is beyond unconscionable (at least to the extent you can use that word in a sporting sense). I don’t go to many games because I live in upstate NY but I go when I can and I watch every single game and I’ve bought jerseys and hats. There is nothing good about the situation. Even when they were good, they were never remotely exciting to watch (save 2005). But for the last 5 years, it’s a crappy team playing on a crappy surface in a crappy stadium (for soccer) in a crappy location with a crappy atmosphere... with tiny crowds and where 99% of the people outside the Fort couldn’t care less about the actual game on the field. They are a third class citizen in their own stadium; spend $6 on 8 oz. of soda and 24 oz. of ice and you’ll get a special souvenir cup!! A PATRIOTS souvenir cup. But the last straw for me has been the relentless war the organization has been waging about the small number of fans, like you folks on BS, who still do give a damn and who actually want Gillette to have a good game day atmosphere. You’re enemy no. 1 in their book. They’re afraid you’ll turn Gillette into Heysel so they’d rather draw 20,000 kids and soccer moms where more noise is made by people screaming at the camera guy than for a goal. I was hoping the organization would make big changes after this bottom of the league finish. I guess I forgot to specify I was hoping for positive changes. Instead, they did the opposite. In a rational world, Burns and Biello would be fired after three miserable seasons in a row. In bizarro Revland, they get PROMOTIONS. In rewarding abject failure, ownership is proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that they are committed to the preservation of crap. In a league where so many other teams are giving their fans amazing atmospheres and an improving quality of soccer, this is even more unacceptable than it once was... no matter how much they hype “We gave you Man Utd!” In doing so, they are killing soccer in New England. The Revs used to draw 20,000 a game... now so many fans have become disillusioned and disinterested that attendances were often less than half that. People are voting with their feet and are increasingly choosing nothing over crap. I used to watch games with great anticipation. I’ve started watching them more out of habit, with little emotion, because I know they’re going to lose most of the time anyways. And that’s really the death knell of any sports franchise. It’s not when people are angry. It’s when they stop caring. Anger dissipates over time. Apathy doesn’t. I am fortunate that I have a choice. I live about equidistant away from Boston, New York and Montreal (even though I’d never in a million years support the Red Bulls). But I feel sorry for you guys who truly want a good soccer atmosphere in New England and are being stymied at every opportunity by despicable (mis)management. You deserve better. I truly hope you get it someday. You deserve it after all you’ve been through. To the Revs (mis)management: congratulations. You’ve added one more name to the thousands who used to care about the Revs but have now been alienated by your outright contempt for anyone who gives a crap about the beautiful game.
