65k tickets and getting shellacked > 12-15k tickets and a game with no real merit. New Zealand's a waste of time to play.

I don't really see the Gold Cup as a major priority, and I don't think the players all see it as that either. Sure, if they win, great. I think some of the fringe invitees are happy to give it a go, but I'm not sure some of the veterans care all that much with their seasons either done in Europe (and in the case of some needing to stay healthy for a new contract/move) or missing some MLS for it.

As a fan, I like seeing the top talent here. I like seeing us play the Brazils, the Argentinas, the Spains. Sure, we're going to get beat, but I get to see the best players and how we stack up. I rather not see us play a competitive, but ultimately meaningless game against Serbia.
