    Red Bulls?

    What does Sunday's game mean playoff-wise? I know they clinched a spot but would a W get us an easier oponent? If I go I will pregame at Bello's.

    4/5 team plays (essentially) a play in game, first 3 teams in the conference don't have to. Currently the Red Bulls are in 4th place, 2 points out of 3rd, 3 points out of 2nd. The Red Bulls play the 3rd place team (Sporting KC) the last week of the season.

    So it is pretty important. Well I don't have to watch a Jets game Sunday so with good weather I'll be in Newark/Harrison

    Definitely an important game for playoff positioning, as Batman said. I'll be at Bello's, as usual.

    Will do. You usually hang downstairs, I presume?

    Alas, Same Old Red Bulls.

    It'll be interesting to see what they draw next season.

    Yea the attendance sunday was putrid. The effort matched. Will Red Bull sell the team? Only 2 designated players with one on bench most of the game. I for one won't be missing any more NFL games for this product.

    Very disappointing season, thus far. They're very lucky to be in the playoffs, they've had baffling inconsistency. It's going to be very interesting what the hell this team is going to look like next year, as both the DP's are likely gone. Attendance seemed pretty much par for the course with the rest of the season, but the atmosphere was very weak for the last home game of the season with playoff implications. South Ward has been a mess all season, as well. First time I actually felt some slight regret about renewing my season tickets for next season.

    P.s. Jumbalaya, got caught up with some work and was a late arrival. Was in Bello's for less than 5 minutes to just meet up with a friend to walk over.

    I think it's largely dependent on how they address both of their DP's leaving (most likely). I think the presence of NYCFC and inevitable rivalry can help both sides, but RBNY needs to do their part to bring some excitement to the club heading into next season. This team could be really, really bad without Henry.

    Ok so I'm really trying to hold on to hope here. Is there any shot of hosting the play-in game with a W sunday? Dafuq, does MSL think they are with these sunday games? I really don't have room on my plate for another lame sports team. Shame cuz I love the area if not the sport. Had high hopes for the arena.

    If they win, they will host the play in game. (technically, they could skip the play-in game, with a win and a loss by Columbus, but at the very least, a win guarantees them a game at home)

    Well the Jets aren't worth watching so I turn my focus back to MLS. If we win, or lose, when would the next game be?

    Red Bulls get a rematch at home, though. Thursday night.

    No sir, they would host DC on Sunday at 4 if they win on Thursday. That would be fun, so fingers crossed for Thursday.

    Didn't soccer end with Czechoslovakia beating French Equatorial Africa for some tiny little plastic trophy in Brazil or somewhere.

    Shouldn't this be the offseason where they practice faking injuries to draw red cards?
