Respectable, educated post from a respectable poster. I'm tired, won't reply now, and will likely not in the morning. Thank you for that.

I am trying to do my part to give the WNT some respect. I know plenty of people who dismiss it and I have done some convincing in the last few weeks.

That was an insanely long post and I don't have the energy to respond to everything so here are my main points.

I have no problem with any of what you said, however it's hard to argue someone waking up early on Saturdays to watch games on tv is as big a fan as someone who goes to every game and travels to away games supporting their local team but whatever.

I do remember the quality of mls years ago I've been attending games since the start. Yes it was bad, yes not all of the games were entertaining but why do you think it's grown so much and so quickly? Because of the people who supported the league because it's ours. Sitting through the crap on a plastic field in an empty giants stadium is what paved the way for what you see today and that's the only way it will continue to grow. This is why I respond the way I do to anyone telling me it's not worth watching because it's not a top tier league. Or when somebody tells me they are a bigger fan of some team overseas just because they set their alarm clock on Saturday mornings.

Also one of the games in September or October is going to be a college night. No date has been set for that

Let's play a fun game!

Heck announces attendance for a mid week day game where it was a ghost town as 15k.

Friday was announced at 15k.

Lol I wonder who was the one inflating the numbers...

True, but it works the other way too. American fans of Euro teams aren't less of fans for not traveling to Europe to see the games live, it's not feasible so we do the best we can.

Technically the announced attendance figure was always the number of tickets distributed. He didn't inflate anything (technically). Where he sucked is by distributing a crap ton of tickets (for free) and not being able to generate a remotely respectable paid attendance. So the attendance isn't a lie per se.

Hey, I used all the tickets I was given for free. Not my fault.
