In the interest of fairness, and also because the MFO people reading these boards (you know who you are) actually ought to know about the positive things they've done, let's come up with a list of things MFO has tried that have actually worked. Maybe I'm being too naive here, but perhaps by reading about the things that actually go over, they might get a better idea of what works and what comes across as ridiculous. So pitch your bitches in the other thread, but see if you can't come up with something they've done right for this one. For instance: The bus trip at the end of last season - and especially the food and drink they laid on - completely surpassed everyone's expectations. They did a pretty good job at the February ESC party with Nick and Bob, as usual. The beginning-of-the-season party at Nevada Smith's was a good concept and well done overall. It was a festive time, mixing true-blue Metro supporters with people who may not have been Metro fans, but are soccer fans. It couldn't have been that hard to do, either; beer + soccer - the hard sell = a good feeling about Metro soccer and the MFO. How come we haven't seen more of this?
