MLS Monday Week 2: More Shocks & Crew Fans No Show
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mEQTpg2-PPc/WqX4fRQCmjI/AAAAAAAAESE/SBeShBs3ecwKjN9Fx0ylLege0gQCskLgACLcBGAs/s1600/Ed3p03C%252B.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Major League Soccer Week 2 2018 Columbus Crew attendance LAFC The Tom Gulley Show LA Galaxy Minnesota United NYCFC Chicago Fire Montreal Impact Sporting Kansas City DC United soccer" border="0" data-original-height="400" data-original-width="600" height="426" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mEQTpg2-PPc/WqX4fRQCmjI/AAAAAAAAESE/SBeShBs3ecwKjN9Fx0ylLege0gQCskLgACLcBGAs/s640/Ed3p03C%252B.jpg" title="MLS Monday Week 2" width="640" /></a></div>Week 2 featured blowouts, surprises, another shock win for upstart LAFC, and the usual sparse attendance for one team whose "fans" were REALLY stuck on their hashtag all offseason...<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Columbus vs. Montreal</span></b><br />Well, well, well. Remember that "#SaveTheCrew" thing that infected every comments section on every soccer-related article on the internet?<br /><br />Yeah. Well, that generated a frenzy that brought a whole 11,098 people to the Crew's home opener. And all 11,098 got to see a pretty good 3-2 match. <br /><br />Piatti and Edwards had the best goals--both for Montreal--and the Crew got the penalty kicks (two of them) plus a Zardes tap in to remain undefeated. And largely unattended.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6_jJCqQRJGU" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">New England vs. Colorado</span></b><br />Brad Friedel got his first win as the man in charge as the Revs got a 2-1 home win. <br /><br />Ironically, the legendary keeper had his own goalkeeper make a great play, and a great big mistake along the way. Matt Turner saved a penalty, only to make a hash out of a ball in the air that Niki Jackson headed home--all after a Diego Fagundez goal started off the proceedings.<br /><br />But, in the end, a 93rd minute free kick goal with a deflection added in made sure Friedel's dressy overcoat didn't go to waste with his first win as an MLS manager.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/l0Wa4dlkj1s" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Real Salt Lake vs. LAFC</span></b><br />OH MY, LAFC!<br />THIS is an expansion team? Last week, we asked if Bob Bradley could have something starting in his spanking new side. Well, IN Salt Lake, the spanking was all done by LAFC--even though they were behind in a match for the first time in their short history.<br /><br />After going down 1-0 on an 18th minute penalty, LAFC came back with five unanswered goals.<br /><br />And answered a lot of critics. Can they keep it up? We'll find out. But for the time being, they're off to a Chicago '98 start for Mr. Bradley.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/B-V4iNumqzI" width="560"></iframe><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;">Chicago vs. Sporting Kansas City</span></b><br />This one was a barnburner all the way, no pun intended.<br /><br />The scoring never stopped and went back and forth as SKC came into Chicago and ruined the Fire's home opener with some uncharacteristic high scoring &amp; lax defense.<br /><br />But a win's a win. Even if it is 4-3 on the part of last year's stingiest defense.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/S3jRU-0b7uw" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Houston vs. Vancouver</span></b><br />Squandered chances? The Dynamo were the poster children for them in a rare loss at home.<br /><br />Outshooting Vancouver early &amp; often, Houston fell prey to nemesis Brek Shea in the 50th minute, as the Whitecaps man sprinted half the length of the field to tuck away a goal that broke a 1-1 tie and put the Dynamo down for good.<br /><br />Dynamo fans will be irked by the 21-7 advantage in shots they had--and simply hope they return to their one loss at home in 2017 form the next time they play in H-town.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/a57S0Chu4ZQ" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">NY Red Bulls vs. Portland</span></b><br />Giovanni Savarese didn't have such a great return to New York. Nor is he having such a great start to his MLS coaching career.<br /><br />After losing to the Galaxy in LA by a goal, the Timbers went bi-coastal and took on New York Red Bulls. And lost 4-0 in a game that wasn't even that close.<br /><br />A 20-12 advantage in shots on the part the Red Bulls didn't help. And neither did anything else, with perhaps the exception of Jake Gleeson's five saves to keep it from becoming extra-ridiculous.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/s20juCG6x5Q" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Orlando vs. Minnesota</span></b><br />A controversial first goal (offsides?), a controversial second goal via PK (in the box?), and a no-doubt-about-it third goal added up to a 2-1 win for the Loons on the road in Orlando.<br /><br />Ethan Finlay bagged a brace for Minnesota, and Orlando had a huge 20-9 shot advantage (but only a 4-3 on target advantage.)<br /><br />Three yellows handed out. For time wasting, unsporting behavior, and simulation for the trifecta of "come on, man" cautions. (Minnesota led that, 2-1.)<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UQQ7Iyyy4V8" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Atlanta vs. DC United</span></b><br />Two of the usual suspects, Martinez and Almiron, contributed as Atlanta United shook off last week's lambasting to look like the team we saw in 2017--with a 3-1 home win over DC.<br /><br />Darren Mattocks pulled one back late to help DC avoid the shutout, but with a 6-1 shots on target advantage, Atlanta started with pressure and never let up.<br /><br />Julian Gressel played a smart "unsung hero" match to keep things flowing in the return to Atlanta's scoring ways.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/p8AvyW2-SIA" width="560"></iframe><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;">NYCFC vs. LA Galaxy</span></b><br />Anton Tinnerholm opened things up with a goal--which we mention because a) it's so much fun to say Anton Tinnerholm, and b) it was a positively crushing volley off the underside of the bar.<br /><br />David Villa then made it four goals in four home openers while playing for NYCFC. Jonathan Dos Santos put one in for the away side, but no matter. 2-1 to NYCFC is how it ended up.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/JglfdLFSLYo" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br />The topsy-turvy, parity-filled schedule that is the MLS season continues next week.

MLS Monday Week 1: This Year Isn't Last Year
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-rFInrTHysXo/Wp3qpxS8VqI/AAAAAAAAERo/0kjSSqy7WWgEme2TSii5sdQwtF47sSEvACLcBGAs/s1600/2000px-MLS_logo.svg.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="400" data-original-width="600" height="426" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-rFInrTHysXo/Wp3qpxS8VqI/AAAAAAAAERo/0kjSSqy7WWgEme2TSii5sdQwtF47sSEvACLcBGAs/s640/2000px-MLS_logo.svg.png" width="640" /></a></div>When last we left you, Toronto had won the 2017 MLS Cup while being heralded as the best MLS side EVER. Seattle were kings of the West. Atlanta was rampaging, although exiting early.<br /><br />Well, Week 1 in MLS kinda changed all that.<br /><br />Of the ten matches played this past weekend, FIVE could be termed upsets of a sort. So let's get started.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Toronto vs. Columbus--UPSET</span></b><br />Over 26,000 packed BMO Field to see their heroes defend their title as the best team ever. <br /><br />Things didn't go according to plan.<br /><br />Even though TFC had most of the ball, the shots were even, and two late first half goals by the Crew were enough to get a 2-0 victory. Higuain opened his account in the 44th minute, and Gyasi Zardes knocked in another (to try and erase his 100% forgettable 2017 form.)<br /><br />The result was perhaps a bit unkind to Toronto. They got 21 crosses in, but the Crew defended well, even though TFC rang the woodwork a few times.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bdIkhT2957s" width="560"></iframe> <br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Houston vs. Atlanta--UPSET</span></b><br />The big signings in the offseason were supposed to just make Atlanta United unstoppable this year, after being nearly so during last year's regular season.<br /><br />But Houston didn't go 12-1-4 at home by accident in 2017. A win? Sure, a possibility. But the 4-0 thrashing? Eye opening. That's the reason this was an "upset." Atlanta not even getting on the board? Shocking.<br /><br />Brad Guzan did his Brad Guzan impersonation by making some good stops and letting in some weak ones. Only time will tell if 2017 was an anomaly for Atlanta, and if Houston can manage to improve on their hapless road record from last year.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ysTiULiwmuM" width="560"></iframe><br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Philadelphia vs. New England</span></b><br />Only three points separated the Union and the Revs at the end of 2017.<br /><br />But each team was pulling a Houston Dynamo last year--with only one road win. (And both playing some really rotten soccer along 2017.)<br /><br />Form held as home team Philadelphia rode C.J. Sapong's goal and an assist to a 2-0 win--spoiling Brad Friedel's coaching debut. The most exciting thing going on in New England right now is the Lee Nguyen telenovela.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/quMOgukANlE" width="560"></iframe><br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Orlando vs. DC United</span></b><br />These two teams were buddies last year--hanging out in the basement of the Eastern Division together.<br /><br />Yamil Asad scored unassisted in the 34th minute, and DC hung on to...get scored on in the 94th minute to say "bye bye" to three points in a 1-1 tie.<br /><br />Good news for Orlando fans is that new signing Jason Meram assisted (along with Jonathan Spector) on Stefano Pinho's goal at the death.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/z40YtO5DwG8" width="560"></iframe><br /><b><span style="font-size: medium;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;">FC Dallas vs. Real Salt Lake</span></b><br />The Hoops' epic collapse last year was the stuff of legend--but under the radar was RSL's coming back from an abysmal start to 2017, finishing just a point behind FCD, and one out of the playoffs.<br /><br />Joao Plata scored for RSL in the 25th, and Real Salt Lake spent most of the rest of the game not marking Michael Barrios, who ran rampant for a big chunk of the match.<br /><br />In the end, though, it was an own goal that did in Real Salt Lake in the 86th. Just over 16,000 showed up to see FC Dallas, so maybe that's a start to ending that attendance problem.<br /><br />And FCD took 18 shots to RSL's 9--without scoring. The only thing more annoying than that for Dallas fans is having to listen to another match by the long-winded, casually-interested, never-one-second-of-silence, "this is our part time job" FCD broadcast team, the very worst in the league.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jann6CNuTQU" width="560"></iframe><br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">San Jose vs. Minnesota</span></b><br />The Earthquakes finished 10 clear points above the Loons last year. So, no surprise that San Jose took all the points in this one, powered by a brace from Danny Hoesen.<br /><br />The 3-0 lead an hour into the match didn't come without some scares, though. Kevin Molino struck goal(d) in the 81st and 85th to make things interesting in what ended up a 3-2 San Jose victory.<br /><br />Props to Valeri Qazaishvili, who assisted on both Hoesen's goals. Can't pronounce his name? No problem. He'll let you call him Vako.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/8y9jgyF5AVY" width="560"></iframe> <b><span style="font-size: medium;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;">Seattle vs. LAFC--UPSET</span></b><br />The newest franchise in MLS, Los Angeles FC, went into the heart of the beast. Their first-ever match that mattered came against perennial power Seattle. IN Seattle.<br /><br />What did Bob Bradley's boys do? They came out with a 1-0 win. <br /><br />Seattle pounded away at LAFC--with 22 shots. LAFC had 5. With only one on target. The one that counted.<br /><br />Diego Rossi got it in the 11th minute--assisted by former Arsenal man Carlos Vela--and LAFC made it stand.<br /><br />Remember Bradley's Chicago Fire in '98? Could this be the start of something?<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iQ-4QYq59Z0" width="560"></iframe><b><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></b><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Vancouver vs. Montreal</span></b><br /><br />One team was demonstrably better in 2017. Vancouver.<br /><br />And they won over the Canadian side from Montreal in a not-that-unexpected, and not-that-entertaining 2-1 win.<br /><br />The biggest news was probably that Kei Kamara opened up his Vancouver account in his debut.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/QO7yUm0c-Pc" width="560"></iframe><b><span style="font-size: medium;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></b><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">Sporting KC vs. NYCFC--UPSET</span></b><br /><br />How can NYCFC beating ANYBODY be called an upset at this point?<br /><br />It's not so much that they won. It's that they won AT KC, by far the league's stingiest side in 2017. And one that had only lost once at home last season. And NYCFC got it done by two clear goals.<br /><br />Tim Melia got beaten twice--by Moralez and Medina--and David Villa took six shots. <br /><br />A reasonable amount of plastic got shown in this one--three yellows and a red. All for the guys from New York.<br /><br /><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/HQ4HjXhO4x4" width="560"></iframe> <br /><b><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></b><b><span style="font-size: large;">LA Galaxy vs. Portland Timbers--UPSET</span></b><br /><br />2017, for the Galaxy, was the very definition of "falling on hard times" for one of MLS's most storied franchises.<br /><br />The club of Beckham, Gerrard, Keane, Donovan, and more? They finished TWENTY-ONE POINTS behind Portland. <br /><br />Hence, upset.<br /><br />The Galaxy got two goals within two minutes, as Ola Kamara and Romain Alessandrini tallied in the 32nd and 34th, respectively. <br /><br />Most of the stats were even--although Portland had a bit more of the ball. Does this mean that 2018 will be a return to glory for the Galaxy? Will Sigi Schmid be able to work his special voodoo?<br /><br />Let's not get crazy. This was Giovanni Savarese's first game at the helm, which might account for a less than Portland performance by Portland.<br /><br />That's Week 1. Tune in next week to see what happens as the MLS moves slowly, but inexorably toward December. (With a World Cup in the middle.)<br /><br /><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/blogspot/TheTomGulleyShow/~4/NdfbezeQuxs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

9 Reasons Josh McDaniels Refusing The Colts Is A-OK
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MJTB4XmkRQo/WnuZph86o_I/AAAAAAAAEQg/3zIvhaKAbaEw9VKkT0xnZk7PLH7Q2MupwCLcBGAs/s1600/Horseshoe.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="the tom gulley show josh mcdaniels indianapolis colts new england patriots jim irsay andrew luck" border="0" data-original-height="399" data-original-width="600" height="424" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MJTB4XmkRQo/WnuZph86o_I/AAAAAAAAEQg/3zIvhaKAbaEw9VKkT0xnZk7PLH7Q2MupwCLcBGAs/s640/Horseshoe.jpg" title="It's OK Josh McDaniels Just Said No" width="640" /></a></div>The Indianapolis Colts announced Josh McDaniels as their new head coach. Even scheduled a press conference.<br /><br />Then, as we all know, Josh McDaniels said, "No, thanks."<br /><br />Everyone's up in arms. McDaniels is being made out to be a combination of Benedict Arnold and Keyser Soze.<br /><br />Oh, but there's a WHOLE BUNCH of reasons it's perfectly fine for McDaniels to have turned down the Colts.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">1. Until a contract is signed, you ain't got nothin'.</span></b><br />Did Josh McDaniels actually sign a binding contract with the Colts? Nope. Until that happens, anything can happen.<br /><br />Including the Colts pulling their offer.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">2. The Colts issued a press release, and scheduled a press conference. Did McDaniels?</span></b><br />The Colts, before they had a signed deal, and a guy in Indianapolis ready to go out to a podium, announced everything.<br /><br />Communications 101. Until the deal is sealed, maybe don't announce anything. Enough speculation had gone on in the media that no announcement was necessary until The Great Unveiling.<br /><br />With an official signed contract and everything.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">3. The Colts organization is a dumpster fire.</span></b><br />Compare the Colts organization to that of the Patriots. Which one is more stable? Which one has a more immediate favorable future?<br /><br />WHICH ONE HAS THE MORE STABLE OWNER? You know, one that doesn't get rid of Peyton Manning. Then, question Manning's achievements. That doesn't question Andrew Luck's mental toughness. The same Andrew Luck that played injured--and is now suffering from doing so.<br /><br />The Colts announced how many times that Luck would play last season? Oh.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">4. This happens every day, in every profession, in every place on earth.</span></b><br />A office supplies salesman in Ames, Iowa gets an offer from a competing firm. He accepts.<br /><br />His current boss finds out and sweetens his deal in order not to lose him. He calls up the competing firm and tells them, "I've changed my mind."<br /><br />Nobody blinks an eye. It's as common as dirt.<br /><br />The owner of the most successful franchise in the last two decades came up with more money, and assurances of a future. That's stability. That's not the unknown.<br /><br />McDaniels did what was best for him, in his mind, professionally and personally.<br /><br />Like many would.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">5. The desire to get another Super Bowl after losing one.</span></b><br />There's a case to be made that if the Patriots win the Super Bowl, it's a lot easier to leave the team, city, and people McDaniels experienced so much success with.<br /><br />But that didn't happen. Now, circumstances have changed. Now, there's a bitter taste. One that might also motivate someone to stay and right that "wrong."<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">6. Andrew Luck, his shoulder, and the Colts' fog of misinformation.</span></b><br />If you're going to a team with a 100% healthy Andrew Luck, that's one thing.<br /><br />If you're going to a team with a hasn't-played-in-a-season Andrew Luck, that's entirely another thing.<br /><br />Plus, the Colts have been claiming for months upon months that Luck was just about to play. Then, this past weekend, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Luck's shoulder may need MORE surgery.<br /><br />That wouldn't change an offensive specialist's mind about going to the Colts? Luck is arguably the biggest draw for going there in the first place.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">7. Family.</span></b><br />Josh McDaniels has a family. And, as anyone can attest, family issues are fickle things.<br /><br />At the end of the day, the ability to stay--for a guaranteed period of time--in one place, and keep his family in a more stable situation for more money is a powerfully persuasive thing.<br /><br />We don't know how or what was expressed or discussed within his family--or when. People have epiphanies. Trials of conscience. Without a signed contract, they're allowed to indulge them.<br /><br />In other words, "If I can make a better life and situation for my family, I'm not worried about what anyone thinks."<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">8. Jim Irsay, all by himself.</span></b><br />When Irsay's dad let him play at being GM? Wow. Among the worst in NFL history.<br /><br />He runs Peyton Manning and Bill Polian out of town. The two people responsible for the Colts' huge successes. (How'd Manning do after he left again? Oh. Two Super Bowl appearances with one win, records shattered left and right. Because Irsay wasn't sure he could play anymore. Nice show of belief in the guy that built your franchise back from the ashes. How have the Colts fared since? Oh.)<br /><br />And he replaces Polian, Caldwell, and Manning with a rookie GM, a rookie coach, and a rookie QB. All at once.<br /><br />His personal life? The pills. <a href="http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/11705479/investigations-reveal-shadow-life-indianapolis-colts-owner-jim-irsay" target="_blank">The woman ESPN reported was Irsay's mistress and drug partner who dies in the home he bought her. The marriage he broke up that started with a Twitter contact.</a> The questioning of Manning's achievements. The questioning of Luck's mental toughness.<br /><br />You wanna hitch your wagon to that guy?<br /><br />When Robert Kraft pulls you aside, offers you a sweeter deal--and an extended contract--do you think that doesn't come into play? Robert Kraft has his players' back. He has a stable, successful organization.<br /><br />The choice between the two isn't even a consideration.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">9. It doesn't matter that he knew some or all of this before he verbally agreed.</span></b><br />McDaniels had been doing this thing called "preparing for a Super Bowl" for the last month, including the playoffs. And two weeks solid for the game itself.<br /><br />People are allowed to change their minds. Particularly for a better offer.<br /><br />In the end, people do what is in their best interest. In this case, McDaniels did.<br /><br />And the Colts' response? Well, we didn't want a guy who wasn't "committed." Chris Ballard actually said, "Just because you're the first choice doesn't mean you're the right choice."<br /><br />Wow. That's from a GM. "The guy I picked first wasn't the right choice"????<br /><br />Sounds like McDaniels made the right move to me. And, now that they've been jilted, sounds like the Colts think so, too.<br /><br /><i style="background-position: 0px 0px; border: 0px; color: #333333; font-family: Lato, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; outline: 0px; padding: 0px; transition: all 0s ease; vertical-align: baseline;">Tom Gulley (recipient of the David Letterman Scholarship) is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, and journalist who regularly creates brilliant communications for some of the world's biggest companies.

Why The Columbus Crew Need To Die
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vhgD909lwxI/WiXRVE90_zI/AAAAAAAAEPQ/iR9xySVg2E8dldJ0CzkgR_hXs5jfM6fgwCLcBGAs/s1600/ColumbusCrew.jpg.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="columbus crew austin move major league soccer anthony precourt savethecrew trolls the tom gulley show" border="0" data-original-height="441" data-original-width="600" height="468" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vhgD909lwxI/WiXRVE90_zI/AAAAAAAAEPQ/iR9xySVg2E8dldJ0CzkgR_hXs5jfM6fgwCLcBGAs/s640/ColumbusCrew.jpg.png" title="Die, Columbus Crew" width="640" /></a></div><br />#SaveTheCrew.<br /><br />If you follow soccer, particularly Major League Soccer, you've seen this sad missive spammed on nearly every soccer-related article online.<br /><br />It's the battle cry of Columbus Crew followers. They're upset that their investor/operator, Anthony Precourt, is planning to move the team to Austin, Texas for a variety of reasons. None the least of which are really terrible fan support, poor civic partnerships, and little to no governmental partnership.<br /><br />And the truth of it is that <b>the Columbus Crew need to die.</b> For lots of reasons.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">1. Nobody is showing up. In droves.</span></b><br />Now, unlike Crew "fans"--who seem to just have a hashtag, I have these pesky things called "facts."<br /><br />The Columbus Crew <b>finished 20th out of 22 teams in attendance this year.</b> The Crew "fans" response is that it's the investor/operator's fault. They blame lack of marketing, lack of promotions (not enough Beer Nights for people to get their drunk on), and allude to mysterious plots to keep people from buying tickets.<br /><br /><b>But the reality is that people weren't showing up long before Anthony Precourt came along.</b><br /><br />Between 2005 and 2011, the Crew didn't once average 17,000 fans. Only once did they crack 15,000. Twice they got less than 13,000. This is a team without any competition in the realm of major league sports for the majority of their season. And they've had over 20 years to get it right.<br /><br />(The only competition being the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, which are being equally non-supported by Columbus, finishing 27th out of 30 at just 14,665 in 2016.)<br /><br />And here's a telling statistic. The Columbus Crew, in all-time attendance figures--<b>average 2,000 LESS per game during the PLAYOFFS than they do during the very unimpressive regular season.</b><br /><br />In 21 years, the Crew have averaged over 18,000 one time. Their first year, playing in a 100,000 seat stadium. They averaged around 14,000 four times. <b>FOUR TIMES, they couldn't get 14,000 into the stadium--three of those times, UNDER 13,000.</b> So, eight of their 21 years? Well under 15,000. Their all-time average is a paltry 15,450 a season. <br /><br />For the playoffs? It gets even worse. <b>Of their 13 playoff seasons, eight averaged under 13,000 per match.</b> In 2014, BARELY 9,000 showed up for a playoff game. Their all-time average is 13,491. And Crew "fans" would have you believe there is crazy wild undeniable passion for this team. Believe that, and I've got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><b><span style="font-size: large;">2. The bar has been raised in Major League Soccer. Columbus isn't even close.</span></b><br />Just this year, a first year franchise, Atlanta United averaged 48,000 per match. And got over 70,000 on several occasions when they opened their stadium's seating completely. <br /><br />For those keeping score, that's over three times the average of the Columbus Crew. In Atlanta's first year.<br /><br />Seattle, 43,000. Toronto, 27,000. Orlando, 25,000. NYCFC, 22,000. These are all teams that haven't had 20 years--in a small market with no competition--to get it right. <br /><br />This year, the league average was 22,000. Columbus averaged 15,000. That's 7,000 less than the league average, for those keeping score at home.<br /><br />A second division USL team down the road, FC Cincinnati, is averaging 21,000. The math is inescapable. <br /><br />"Save our team! Even though we aren't showing up and never have!" Sure. We'll all get right on that.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">3. Columbus isn't profitable. Not by a longshot.</span></b><br />According to Forbes, Columbus is the least valuable franchise in Major League Soccer. <br /><br />And also, according to Forbes, they're losing $5 million a year.<br /><br />Why? Well, the first thing would be the Hashtag Warriors who don't actually show up for games. <br /><br />Other factors include little to no TV revenue. Lesser dollars than larger markets in ad and digital ad sales. And no participation by the local business community to make it that way due to the very obvious lack of fan support.<br /><br />Crew "fans" claim they need a TV deal. They apparently don't realize that the NFL started a practice in 1973 of blacking out local broadcasts of games until a certain percentage of tickets were sold to the game. That's good business sense. Why hand out the game for free until the stadium is full?<br /><br />And, as the numbers blatantly indicate, that stadium isn't going to be close to full. Columbus isn't a major market that can trade tickets for a TV contract that can bring huge numbers. Particularly when fan support just doesn't pass the smell test on the part of sponsors or broadcasters.<br /><br />Merchandising? The Columbus Crew didn't have a jersey amongst the league's top 25 best-sellers this season. So that's not really happening, either.<br /><br />The team can't generate revenue, and with the "Hashtags do more than buying tickets" attitude of their "fans"? <br /><br />There's little to no chance anyone--Anthony Precourt or anyone else--is going to just hemorrhage money so "fans" who consider the convenience of NOT showing up to games as their birthright have a team in town.<br /><br />"Save our team! Even though we won't even go through the motions by showing up and never have--in order to get local sponsors interested in upping their rate!" Funny how people aren't exactly tripping over themselves to help "fans" who won't show up to games, isn't it?<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">4. Trolls, trolls, trolls--and lots of 'em! That's Columbus Crew fans.</span></b><br />The hashtag. That's what they've got. <br /><br />Now, a SMART group of fans would reach out to other people with an actual appeal. Rather than spamming every single article online with just a hashtag.<br /><br />That, and further troll behavior directed at those who are tired of having their soccer comments section spammed--and respond accordingly with #KillTheCrew.<br /><br />If an article was ABOUT the Columbus Crew? OK. We can all live with that, to some extent.<br /><br />But an article about Minnesota United's first season? About the Sounders-Toronto MLS Cup final? About the struggles of a Houston Dynamo player? Dozens of articles having NOTHING to do with the Columbus Crew? It's tiresome troll behavior that turns more people off from their cause than gains followers.<br /><br />In fact, the "fans" of the Crew loudly crow about their online petition to save the Crew. It has 16,500 signatures. Remember the part where the league average for attendance is 22,000? That's right. After months, they have less than a single MLS game, but think it's a groundswell of support.<br /><br />#KillTheCrew is becoming more and more popular all the time. Nobody is going to help trolls who wouldn't help themselves.<br /><br />Here's the response I got to facts and reality from a Crew "fan" named Jason Woolever who works with Holony Media. Instead of responding with counter arguments, or even insults about my appearance, logic, background, or knowledge--he <b>fabricated a totally false posting and attributed it to me.</b><br /><br />And, in true Crew "fan" form, he showed his class by going full-on sodomy.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5331zeJ29CY/WiXLqZbGE7I/AAAAAAAAEPA/bSSmcFAa9u8K0FECxYJtjzXPIFvqGpBkwCEwYBhgL/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2017-12-04%2Bat%2B12.04.21%2BPM.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="952" data-original-width="997" height="305" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5331zeJ29CY/WiXLqZbGE7I/AAAAAAAAEPA/bSSmcFAa9u8K0FECxYJtjzXPIFvqGpBkwCEwYBhgL/s320/Screen%2BShot%2B2017-12-04%2Bat%2B12.04.21%2BPM.png" width="320" /></a></div><br />Classy, huh? And this is just a drop in the bucket. The Crew fans want you to #SaveTheCrew, but they don't like facts about attendance, team value, or any other sort of unflattering reality.<br /><br />And they respond like fourth grade trolls. Time after time after time.<br /><br />"Save our team! We'll troll every article till you do! And when you mention that trolling and spamming isn't the best way to earn sympathy and followers? WE'LL MAKE UP TROLL STUFF!" Bright people, these Crew fans.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">5. US soccer has no promotion/relegation. Columbus hasn't earned their MLS status.</span></b><br />Unlike nearly every league in the world, Major League Soccer has no system of demoting the worst-performing teams on the field, and promoting teams that finish at the top of the lower leagues.<br /><br />Therefore, a Major League Soccer franchise is a golden ticket into the first division of American soccer.<br /><br />Giving them away to cities and fans who won't support their team, or have no reasonable chance of ever being profitable just won't do in this day and age. Not with the Atlantas and Seattles and Orlandos of the world doing things the right way for viable clubs.<br /><br />Losing money, a piteous trollish fan base that won't show up to games, and little chance of becoming profitable via business or government partnership isn't going to cut it with Cincinnati up the road averaging 21,000 a match. Sorry.<br /><br />You don't get to stay forever for free. You've had over TWENTY YEARS, Columbus. Sorry.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">6. The governor of Ohio himself said Columbus "hasn't created a spark" in 20 years.</span></b><br />This is self-explanatory and pretty much makes its own gravy.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">7. Other markets deserve a shot after Columbus wasted one for decades.</span></b><br />Apparently, the people in Columbus don't remember the Tampa Bay Mutiny. Or the Miami Fusion.<br /><br />There's precedent in Major League Soccer for underperforming franchises. <br /><br />Cities are vying even now for precious and valuable expansion franchises in MLS. They're stepping up to the plate with agreements to build new, modern stadiums. They're coming to the table with civic and government partnerships.<br /><br />Columbus? Nothing. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Just "lose money and stay here." Oh, and the trolling.<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">8. HISTORICAL bad attendance. Not keeping up with MLS.</span></b><br />Here's how the Crew finished in attendance rankings for the last ten years. You've seen the actual numbers already. Here's how they're doing amongst their counterparts.<br /><br />2007. 11th of 14 teams.<br />2008. 9th of 15.<br />2009. 9th of 15.<br />2010. 9th of 16.<br />2011. 17th of 18.<br />2012. 14th of 19.<br />2013. 12th of 19.<br />2014. 16th of 19.<br />2015. 16th of 20.<br />2016. 16th of 20.<br />2017. 20th of 22.<br /><br />Tell me again how it's all Precourt's fault. (The 2008 figure is from an MLS Cup winning year. Under 15,000 per match. So, even when the Crew is winning, the stadium isn't full.)<br /><br /><b><span style="font-size: large;">9. The League loses nothing by losing Columbus.</span></b><br />The results are in. Nobody's clamoring to #SaveTheCrew. And why should they?<br /><br />The Crew "fans" should long ago have saved themselves. Why should anyone get motivated to leap into action for a bunch of people who a) happily champion their right to troll anyone and anything under the sun, and b) who failed to support their team when they had the chance?<br /><br />The answer is that there is no reason. MLS leaving Columbus is no great loss. No loss at all, in fact.<br /><br />Sure, there was a time of great hope and optimism about a small market team taking hold--a la the Green Bay Packers--then being embraced by the city universally and creating a groundswell of support.<br /><br />It didn't happen.
