As you can tell from my post count I can be considerd a newbie. I won't lie and say I've followed soccer for more then a year or two, and I don't watch English or Itialian or any other soccer leagues other then MLS. So I'll throw that out right there in front. But as I watch the Revs I get a sense of a lack of passion for the game they are playing. I know this team is made up of veterants with little to prove in the regular season, that they are old and save themselfs for the postseason which is the only place they can advance their carrers at this point, and that the front office doesn't care enough to give a MLS worthy wing to challenge Khano to improve... But rarely do I see a good hard tackle as more then an abberation in the game by teh Revs [Avery,John: I said "good" hard tackle]. I rarely see moments of inspirtation or creativity. I don't see the will to dominate possesion, or the anger to respond to bad plays. In other sports that I do watch, NBA/NFL/NHL, I wouldn't be suprised that after blowouts or bad performances that the home fans would boo certian players for their actions. Even throw things on the field to show their passionate displeasure of the product on the field. Last year I became a fan of this team, and I'm not going to lie, beign one of the best in the MLS had something to do with it. But brining toughness in Franchino, creativity in Dempsey, never give up runs on the wing by someone called "Dorman" that was a MAJOR part of it for me. I watch the MLS because I don't think it is something of a league where I should be just happy it exsist. I watch it because I believe it showcases the best contortion of American talent in the game today. And I believe that the players deserve to the game, and the fans, to try hard every game to dominate, to become better at what they do, and most of all to win. Again, I'm new so maybe I'm missing the stubleties of the game, or an accepted philosophy within the Revs. But this is what I see.
