That's what I assume most people say when they don't have people around them playing or watching. I wonder what they'd say to that figure of 650million-ish viewers watching that game.

Edit: playing or watching soccer.

I voted for Avila in the GOTW poll. Steele's goal didn't even make it haha. A lot of great goals to start the season.

I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon soccer because nobody around me played, watched, or gave a shit about the sport. Thank god for John Henry because without him I would have never given the sport a chance

yeah I was a huge NBA/MLB guy. Still follow both sports pretty regularly, but baseball got too advanced for me. I understood basic saber-metrics, and I was huge on prospects, but then more of those algorithms shits popped up so I stopped posting a lot in the mlb thread. Watching different soccer games in different leagues 'errry day > baseball math.

Yeah I hear you. I watch a lot of baseball but I dont care about all those advanced stats. I hope they never end up mainstream in soccer. I wish more games were played during the week, I end up missing a ton of games on Saturdays and Sunday's

I think, and this is just my very strong personal opinion. But you should definitely give MLS another real chance. It's not too late to get started this season as we're still less than 10 games in. And this is seriously one of the best places for you to really be pointed in the right direction and to ask questions about the league and its players and all that good stuff. I'll never understand how a music website like this has such awesome MLS supporters in it. Everyone is chill and as long as you give it your best shot, I can respect that.

I feel like if you give it a shot and ask questions and really get to know the ins and outs of MLS, it's IMPOSSIBLE not to like.

Edit: this is for new guy. It'll probably be 12 pages back by the morning.

Interesting how you brought up the music idea.

Being a Red Bull Supporter I know that some former members of the ESC started up the GSS (another supporters section) and they're big into the punk/hardcore NYC scene. I know I listen to a lot of hardcore as well. I know throughout Italy they also have supporters who's cultures are involved in music.

So I'll have Internet again this weekend, so what MLS games could be interesting to watch? I'm thinking I'll watch the RSL game Saturday for Beckerman but I haven't paid much attention to the standings so there could be an exciting match I'm overlooking
