Well, that sucks, but it's better than rooting for a club owned & ran by a bunch of unethical cocksuckers with better connections.
A domestically driven active shooter can't come soon enough to their front office...
extremely sad when fans lose the team they support
Don't worry, there wasn't many to begin with.
Even if they only had 1200 paying fans per game it is sad
But thanks for making fun of how bad we're feeling

You mean to tell us that after literal years of false accusations, reckless speculations, pithy insults, name calling, actually typing "Die Energy Die," claiming that your team is superior by every rubric and engaging in a literal pissing contest, NOW you want cry foul over taunting?
Sure. Why not. To quote who I assume was your presidential candidate, "At this point what difference does it make..."
My God! You cant even seem to be a gracious winner! Are you really this much of an arrogant, self-important prick that you cant even sympathize?
I just spoke with Sean Jones this morning. You remember him. He owned the soccer team you USED to root for. Rayo VdM left town, and left HIM to answer for all of the unpaid bills they didn't pay. He doesnt have a rich daddy to swoop in and bail him out. He put all he had to put in to trying to make Rayo OKC work.
The NASL is trying to make him responsible for paying the late exit fee, since Rayo VdM didn't alert the NASL that they were bugging out. This, even though Rayo VdM completely frozen him out since August. The NASL even sent him a letter telling not to get on any more league calls, since he was not the spokesman for the team anymore.
Also, turns out Rayo VdM apparently didn't pay player salaries before they left, either.
Vendors weren't paid, either. So now they are trying to make him responsible for that, as well.
So yeah, I'm a little hurt by what's happened. And I don't have a.good sense of humor about it right now. If you really want to know.how I feel read @MrWarmth's post above.
Enjoy your soccer

Considering this is still the Rayo OKC forum, your posts are considered trolling.
Please try to be respectful.
Welcome to being a sports fan. I hope you enjoy it.
Hate that you lost your club, but it sounds like Sean Jones picked bad business partners. I am sure his motives were "pure" and all, but it sounds like that horrible group on the other side of town ended up being better for the local community than the out of town Spaniards. Either way, sucks you lost your club the way you did, hope you can find some live soccer to watch in the future!
I still don't understand how Lund gets away from this largely Scott free, If I remember correctly it was he who convinced the Spaniards and then convince them to let them use their money while he ran it. He looks like he ran it into the ground then left when the money dried out. I don't see how anyone can't at least lay a little bit of blame at his feet?
Completely agree ... I think it's odd that reports came out about Rayo coming in and cleaning up a mess that SOS let happen (paying vendors, handling game day operations like crap, etc.) but now Rayo left things crappy as well and left it on a local minority owner (who I would have thought had less skin in the game than SOS ... but I guess not?). That's the deal with foreign/local investor groups ... when things go bad, fingers get pointed and people get left with something they didn't sign up for! Unfortunate all the way around.
The local boys would have been better off finding different partners ... the foreign group would have been better off finding local boys in a place that didn't have a similar level club to compete with.
Sean Jones was and is a decent, standup guy. He got caught in a perfect storm of bad market, bad management and bad partners.
Perfect world, he'd join with Energy, but I totally understand if he won't.
Not as sad as loving something won't take care of itself, but not everyone has the stomach to be a Fire Fan
Meh, if the situation were reversed, I'd be clog dancing on their graves
Oh I think we all knew this was never going to take off with Lund, but I appreciated his petty spite for Funk the Younger.
What false accusations? That the McLaughlin didn't have enough class to back out of his partnership with OKCFC face to face and then use his connections to deny them their field for practice & playing, ensuring Energy FC didn't have a competitor for 2 years? Or that they're on the doorstep of joining MLS, just as soon as they find $200ish million and someone with more cashflow than Prodigal LLC and an 18Kish publicly funded stadium in a location to be named later?
This is why you never trust Spaniards or anyone involved in lower division soccer.
It helps watching both Dallas & OKState perform their annual choke jobs. And besides #CF97's experiment in failure for the upcoming season, I have the Energy to root against and pray for losses every match
Thanks Dad. Where were you with this when all the real trolling was going on?
To be fair, they're not all horrible. I have on good authority that @Brother Badgerjohn is not a shitbird.
Oh, there is plenty of blame to lay at his feet, probably the majority of it, the rest, falling on the Spaniards and the NASL for selecting the market, knowing the players in the Rayo Camp
That's sort of the way you make money in Soccer in the US | You better have a lot of your own money to throw down the toilet to begin with.
Why would that be understandable? Because they're just interested in his capital to slow their hemmoraging or because names were exchanged and hostages were taken?
Now, I'm gonna see if I can pick up one of those rainbow Rayo LS kits on the craigslist
Found a Rayo OKC hand-me-down....
Rayo was arguably better after the coaching change, so that might be a good move. Roughnecks were pretty bad last season.
So, I've seen conflicting reports about hiatus/moving to Nebraska/absolutely gone floated for awhile now... Haven't found anything concrete. @ManuSooner what's the latest from Mr. Jones or rather your opinion?
I heard the franchise would come back in 2018 but relocated, I tought Texas anyway
Like the Scorpions did.
Can one of the moderators humanely kill this thread?
Sadly, we have a whole subforum to shut down...
the scorpions were about to go to Las Vegas but BOG voted no, Rayo could relocate to Austin and become the Austin Scorpions considering it takes 1 h from san antonio to austin so the ones who don't like the new team could support the reborn scorpions
That's about 600 people give or take (based on the attendance of this years San Antonio FC of 6170 vs the 6700 and change they averaged the last 2 years in NASL). With a short lead up time to sell season tickets, it will be interesting if they can reverse that trend.
