I can't stand that commercial for the same reason and I actually like watching Dax McCarty as a player. The whole quote seems so forced and cliche. As Mike Brown said, it's all about marketing.

Yeah, it's all about marketing, unfortunately. Believe it or not, Red Bulls has a good presence throughout the country, not too different from the Rangers. Anyone from NY who's away on business or moved elsewhere, you'll see (and hear) a lot of them at these games out West, in LA, Portland, Seattle, etc... Keeping that "NY" image is pretty important, unfortunately for us New Jersey folk. This is why I love and respect the Devils even more than I did before the Nets left. They're all we got and they're really proud of this state..

Until that Yankees/Man City owned team comes into existence, they SHOULD market as NY's team. They're marketing to the whole tri state market, not just mainly to NJ like the Devils are which allows them to use Jersey's Team

Not to mention, as someone who goes to a lot of games, I see a ton of people taking the PATH in from New York. A lot of Brooklynites and people from Manhattan go to Red Bulls games. The Devils came into the league under very different circumstances in 1982, surrounded by local rival markets; being "Jersey's team" would inevitably be a no-brainer for them.

 

But I think for RBNY's survival, they have to be "New York's team". MLS itself is an emerging league, so they need to really engage all the mega markets as much as they can.

The Red Bulls have always been dead to me because of their fake NY image.

 

It's too bad the Cosmos didn't join the MLS. Maybe that would've cut into the Red Bulls NY fan appeal.

I also hate that commercial for the same reason.. Makes me not want to support them anymore if they can't even acknowledge where they play.. I mean most if their fans come from the Ironbound right?

The Red Bulls have always been dead to me because of their fake NY image.

 

It's too bad the Cosmos didn't join the MLS. Maybe that would've cut into the Red Bulls NY fan appeal.

 

My dad coached my younger brother's soccer teams for years...from when he was 7 years old, up until he started high school.  My dad got the job last-second...the original coach quit, someone asked my dad if he could step in, and he said he would.  He then ran out to Efinger's (a sporting goods store in Bound Brook) and bought a rulebook, because he didn't know anything about soccer.  His first team went 0-10, but that was the only losing record he had in his coaching career. 

 

My bro was a center halfback before moving to sweeper.  He made the state team a number of times (my dad coached those teams too...after that first rough year, he did a terrific job)...this is going back to the late-70s to mid-80s. 

 

We had season tix for the original Cosmos for a few years...they had a hell of a team for a while...from 1976-83 they actually averaged well over 2 GPG (almost 3 GPG some seasons), which is kind of unheard of in soccer.  They drew well too...from 1978-80, they averaged well over 40,000 fans, and that was AFTER Pele had left the team (he played for them from 1975-77).  Giorgio Chinalgia's signing helped greatly...he was one of the few overseas players to play in the NASL while still firmly in his prime.  We saw him score seven goals in a single game (he did that twice in his NASL career).

 

The tailgate parties were great...soccer back then felt just as important (to us, anyway) as the other major sports.  Attendance dropped off rapidly after 1980 (from over 42,000 to just over 12,000 in 1984). 

 

Yeah, would've been interesting for sure if the Cosmos had joined MLS...it's been almost 30 years since their last season (before joining the new NASL, anyway).  The new NASL has actually resurrected some of the original teams' locations AND nicknames.  But the Cosmos still have some nostalgia among some for sure...the Cosmos fans were really into it back in the day.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Colin!  What's up dude?!

 

You should probably ask DatboyJPP since he works for the Red Bulls.

Eh, their tie to New York has always felt forced but it has come with the benefits of attracting DPs & frankly Red Bull's money.

To me its going to be interesting how/if they change their tune when the Manchester/Yankees team arrives

Whaaatever, they need the NY brand to survive.  Just wish they wouldn't advertise on MSG+ in such a way.

Highly doubt it.. I'd say that's about 10% of the fanbase, while another 70% is made up mostly of suburban NY and NJ families. Last 20% being 18-30 year olds from the local area (including NYC/Brooklyn).

lol this is kinda funny.  I've been a RedBulls season ticket holder for a very long time.  I've followed and supported this team since 96 when we were the Metrostars.  So if you're saying that the "NY Brand" is an appeal, think again.  It's that piece of sh!t energy drink brand that does the opposite, it drives people away.  It's a corporate shill.  I absolutely HATE the fact that we are owned by Red Bull.
