The TV angle at Citi is so bad it makes Yankee Stadiums bad TV angle look good.

Is that the home plate netting obstructing the view midfield? Can't they take that down?

 

Good lord that's embarrassing looking. There have been a lot of games that made MLS look low-rent, but that has to be towards the top. I remember watching the Kansas City Wizards play at a minor league baseball park and that was less embarrassing.

I retract my earlier guess.

I couldn't even believe it. It's hard to commit a more egregious penalty than that, and boy was it ill-timed.

Stunning result and stunning brain fart. Penance for the stadium debacle, though.

Do they have room for a regulation size field or are they using NYCFC's Bronx standards?

 

The latter is within FIFA's regulations.

I hope you like the Earthquakes because I can’t see the MLS not forcing that rivalry down our throats immediately. This makes me a little torn because I’ve always liked Republic second behind Rising in the USL and the Quakes are my hometown MLS team. Can’t just sit on the fence! What should be done? I will miss Republic, they are one of few teams that I make an effort to see play every year here in the desert. A really classy club that separates itself from the rest of the west. Guess that is good reason to move up and forward though. Maybe I’ll replace that game withhhhhh......... let’s be honest, another dollar beer night. I’ll pour one out for the 7th place sized hole you’ll be leaving.

They need to fix their stadium solution very soon.

All we need is Galaxy to win tomorrow and I'm all set.

 

Big win for Seattle tonight. Cheers to Nick Rimando for a great game and great career.

Big win for Sac Republic tonight in the first round (play-in round?) of the USL playoffs. After conceding the first goal about three seconds into the game, they knotted it up right before the half and won it on this absolute banger of a goal. 

 

This weekend we head to, oh boy, RENO to take on our future flunkies in their dumb little baseball stadium. 

 

You bet bet your sweet ass I’ll be there.

This sounds smart assed, but I'm actually curious.

Do they have room for a regulation size field or are they using NYCFC's Bronx standards?

 

The Yankee Stadium pitch meets MLS requirements, and is very comfortably within FIFA specs (MLS minimum is 70 x 110 yards, FIFA club minimum is 50 x 100).

 

Was hard to tell if the Citi Field pitch was any larger; could have been, but I was also looking at it from an unfamiliar angle, directly behind goal instead of the corner.

The biggest issue I've seen with the NYCFC games was how the turf laid over the dirt would just come right up when players slid across the field. The second is sight lines, but that's not a safety issue.

Is tonight the biggest game in MLS history?

If this were the Western Final or the MLS Championship, I think it would be. It's definitely important and it's time for LAFC to put their big boy pants on.

It's been a big week for Sac Republic.  First a move to MLS and then a win in the USL playoffs.  Good news for the sports fans of Sacramento since there's nothing else going on.  Following the success of the River Cats too.
