I mean, do you feel like it's going for a good cause? Is spending $10 on parking at the HDC (which all goes to AEG) a better feeling than spending $10 to go to a movie (I remember when it used to be $2.50), no matter how good the movie is? Or is it just ultimately going into Anshutz' pockets and he's a multi-billionaire anyway, so forking over money to him is like stealing from the poor to give to the rich? For example, tonight, if I can swing it, I'm going to a college game here in San Diego. It'll cost about $5 to $7 if I'm not mistaken. I'll gladly hand over the money. I feel like I'm supporting the local college soccer program and the money, no matter how good the soccer turns out to be, will be well spent. And I ain't rich. Far from it. My parents do alright; the woman I live with does better than me; so I have a safety net of some sort. But I ain't a wad of cash looking to be spread around town. Or do you think MLS prices are too high, or parking is too high, or the cost of Soccer America is too high, or whatever? And that when it comes to soccer, just like anything else, you're looking to save save save, 'cause the bottom line is what counts at all costs? In the end, I enjoy spending my money on U.S. Soccer - be it tickets to a game, t-shirts or other gear, or even paying for parking if it's going into the pockets of the soccer-types as opposed to the local municipalities - and feel it's helping, in however small a way, with the growth of the game in this country. PS. Of course, if everything was free it'd be much better, as long the future of the sport in this country wouldn't become an issue as a result.
