And where was the usher in your section?
Oh, security got there pretty quick...only the one punch was thrown...I got grabbed by like 7 people immediately when I got my sweater back down from over my head. I somehow progressively was moved down the aisle to the first couple of rows standing around shouting up to my group to see what the hell was going on. And by then security and the ushers had shown up. Spent the rest of the game talking to the cops and ticket people to discuss future games because we stand there all the time and this was nothing but uncalled for aggression.

I had 5 different people after the game ask me to give them one of the water bottles off the Red Bull bench (I guess since the bottles look like Red Bull cans so they are cool). 1 offered me nothing so I said buzz off. Another claimed to be Connor Lade's cousin (I believe him, looked exactly like him) so I told him to have Connor get him one, 2 offered me $5 and I passed. The last was a kinda cute girl, I considered telling her to flash me for one but I wasn't sure she was 18...

So, of the 5 of us, 3 are guys and the other two are girls (my friends fiance and his friends fiance), the 2 kids are behind the girls and shoving them trying to see the game and saying degrading things about them and women in general. Finally the half ends and we decide to leave to find new seats. As we're coming back down shortly before the start of the second, my friends fiance is coming down and goes in front of me and starts yelling to the guy and his kids that we left because they were smelly and disgusting and that they need to shower and learn some respect. She starts to walk further down to look for a seat and suddenly I feel someone pulling my sweater from behind, I hear "You talk to me like that you *****", and I get suckered in the face." My buddy grabbed the kid's hair and slammed him down to the ground and I was pulled away from the kid and his father who wanted to shield his son and his ******* move, so I got dragged away by a bunch of other people to keep be from getting in trouble for retribution. Anyway, they got thrown out and my buddies and I are now in the process of ensuring that they are gone from the season.

Whats disgusting is first off, my friend said the father was egging his son on to come after us and 2, we think he was going for my friends fiance who was yelling at them, he realized he couldn't get her so he went after me instead. Kids like 15 and was an absolute punk. His father didn't give a crap either. There are some ****ed up people in this world...
Yup, people complaining about seating in 101... Classic. Remember the GS days when 101 wasn't cool and we didn't deal with that? I was hoping it was some out of line Rapids fan. Then I remembered the Rapids don't have fans (I'm kidding, they've made great strides with their supporters culture)

Some of you guys work for RBA? Nice.

And while we're on the topic of foreign footballs, any rugby players here? And if so, who do you play for?

Colorado sent 18 supporters to the game, they were in section 220. Red Bulls reported attendance of over 20,000. Actual attendance was 14,213

They reported exactly 25,000 in attendance at the first game at the arena against Santos. What do you do exactly?

I wasn't at that game.

I do operations, during the time the gates were open I was on the Colorado end getting balls back from the crowd during warmups and I cleaned the Red Bulls bench after the game and had a good amount of fans ask me for ****

I took the Red Bulls third substation card as a piece of memorabilia though

It's not like he needs to have the money Red Bull does to buy something from them. Us working class folk buy their crappy drink all the time (not me personally), JVB can buy a crappy soccer team from them. I just don't want to be soccer playing cans of soda anymore. Siempre Metro

Red Bull owns 5 soccer teams (US, Germany, Austria, Brazil and Ghana) a hockey team (Austria) and a Racing team not to mention all of their extreme sport ventures. It's a part of their global marketing plan. They have absolutely no intentions of selling the team.

I've been a supporter of this team and have followed global soccer for quite some time, I'm aware of the evils of Red Bull sports

So, your post above was nothing short of an ignorant, snarky, sarcastic response?

Wishful thinking? A joke? JVB has never shown any interest in owning a soccer team (not publicly at least), and the rumors every year that RB will sell never have any legitimacy. Maybe one day we'll be RB free (None of us are opposed to sponsorship or stadium ownership, but branding wise), they have abandoned RBFC projects in the past.

What's the issue though. The Company is willing to bankroll any player. As a fan you have to appreciate the attempts at putting together the best roster they can

We don't want our soccer team being used as a pawn in their capitalistic scheming. Soccer is soccer, and of course there's a business to that, but corporate branding is never ok. Imagine if Red Bull bought the Devils and all of our jerseys and logos were changed and we became hockey playing soda adds. Everyone would **** bricks, we'd be pissed as hell. Well, that's what happened. We had our team, our colors, our jerseys, and they took away our identity. You can still hear Metro being chanted out of 101 (although every year, more and more new guys come in and adopt Red Bull). Everywhere RB Salzburg goes, the other supporters have anti-RB banners and displays, and a huge chunk of the fan base reorganized the original team (SV Austria Salzburg) in the 7th division, and they've climbed their way up to the 3rd. Last season was the first year since reorganization that they weren't promoted.

RB does not give a **** about the success of the team. They dump money into it to keep attendance numbers up so they turn a profit. They bought the team 6 years ago and we've been trash ever since. They brought in stars to sell tickets, not to win games.
