Red Bulls "goal" this offseason was to become more American. Two days into the official offseason and already acquired a Japanese, a Colombian and an Argentine.

MLS commish;

“The demographics don’t lie: our two countries have become soccer nations,” said Garber. Those same demographics—more Hispanic, less white— are a warning sign to the NHL, which apparently believes it can abuse its fans without consequences. MLS is growing because it has nurtured its fan base.

I thought their goal was to get more guys with MLS experience?

Regardless, I like the moves

One population is GROWING faster than the other. There isn't any less of the key NHL demo.

Simple maths.

The Red Bulls might be signing the best free kick taker in World history soon. As we saw with Beckham age doesn't diminish quality in that area.

Actually its not. 1 strike and 2 lockouts in a 13yr span and fans flocked back in October 2005.

There is every reason to believe it will happen again because so far NHL fans have gone back to the game.

Which is what Garber said. The NHL feels like it can do this to the fans and one day people are gonna stop caring, especially in struggling markets.

I consider myself a huge hockey fan and I'm not spending a dime on the league for anything (tickets/clothes/etc) until a year after the lockout settles. This rebound is gonna be much tougher for the NHL.

Thats not what he said.

1) He is implying that a growing hispanic population is bad news for the NHL which we can say is ludicrous because its been growing while the NHL went from lockout to $3.3B industry.

2) Cmon, we "nurtured" our fans....NHL "abuses" theirs. he is taking a shot at the NHL telling fans to "come watch us because we will be playing next season guaranteed."

Why is it shocking and why are you implying it's a bad idea because it's based on money?

Money is good.

Newcastle brings garbage squad sheet.

Newcastle plays garbage squad.

Newcastle plays like garbage.

Hooray for drawing a CL dropout (cant be Chelsea) or an EL group winner (cant be Liverpool nor Bordeaux).

They had home and home through 2011 and they will once again after the Cosmos are the 20th team in 2015. They actually wanted to contract a team this offseason and go with 18 until the Cosmos were ready then go back up to 20 with them and an Orlando expansion but apparently no one volunteered to stop playing. What jerks.

I have no idea if they will go to one table again with 20 teams. They do need to get Houston and Dallas back in the same conference though so they can play more often.

Kind of frustrating two weeks in a row now.

The RvP Goal. and now the Young one. This one especially. It goes from being 3-0 to 2-1
