Would you be following NYCFC this season if interested? The Red Bulls seem a while out from you.

Red bulls are on mass transit, they are pretty easy to get too, Yankee Stadium, where nycfc will play, is more of a pain in the ass for me and the seats are not oriented for soccer.

Fair enough. Getting to games is important, it's why Arsenal can fill their library stadium.

Espn had a TV deal with the mls, but they try and sell it as world up quality, and it just isnt.

Yeh they need to stop overselling it. The Eastern Conference has nothing on the Western at the minute, anyway.

I don't even know that much about it, all I know is I enjoyed the world cup, and the Americans did have a world class goal tender.

Nah, Howard played above himself. He hasn't been that good at club level for a while.

Could be, but if it weren't for him they never would have advanced.

True, doesn't make him world class though. I'd say Guzan was far superior.

I wouldn't know, I don't follow the game as closely, I had to give up many sports for marriage. I only kept football and baseball. Watching other sports is like cheating.

I only really follow football and cricket. I can see the latter being removed from my life in such a scenario.

Hockey was the killer for me. It was my worst sport playing, but I loved the game.

Given that I could easily sit there and watch a Test match (8 hours a day for three days) and indeed find it preferable to one day games...I've never had any exposure to hockey, actually.
