Let me start off by saying I've supported this club since day 1 and have been a season ticket holder for every season. We need to support this league if we want soccer to succeed in this country. My wife is 8.5 months pregnant with our first child and she's quitting her job to take care of the baby(so money is going to be a little tighter). Going into the game last night I was debating whether or not to renew my tickets for next season. So here's my story: Well I'm sitting in my formerly first row seats and guess who sits right in front of me before the game starts? Nick and the whole front office entourage. The game starts and it goes from bad to very ugly. The team is playing like sh|t, we give up an early goal and D.C. gets corner after corner. Me and my father start talking about the club and what a disaster it's been (minus the 2000 season): - 7 coaches in 8 seasons - a boat load of players passing through the roster turnstile - $10 parking (yes, I know Soldier Field is now charging $35!) - crappy treatment from the NJSEA crew over the years (since the Cosmos days) - lack of advertising or any sustained ticket drives - turf field with football lines - the signing of dead weight over the hill players(Balboa, Moreno, etc..) - failure to capitalize on any momemtum after the World Cup - failure to successfully market international double headers - overall poor play on the pitch over the past 8 seasons 5 minutes before half time one of the people sitting with Nick (older guy with grey hair) gets up and says "I didn't know these tickets came with whine", shakes hands with Nick and leaves. I blurt out "whine goes well with cheese doesn't it?". 10 minutes later Nick and whoever is left gets up and leaves. As he got up I was waiting to see if he makes eye contact with myself or my dad. I was dying to strike up a conversation and make some 'suggestions'. No go. He still heard most of our comments. I apologize to anyone sitting around us if we sounded obnoxious. We had to vent and take advantage of the situation.
