  1. I agree there is nothing around Crew Stadium. I think FC Cincy benefits from all of the restaurants and bars nearby and the Crew probably would too. However, I don’t see entry/exit improving in a downtown locale. Current location is very convenient to I71. It also affords significant space for parking and tailgating.
  2. I enjoy going when I do, but it’s too far to be a season ticket holder. That’s 3 hours round trip. I don’t stay overnight but it ends up being a long trip as I’m fortunate to join the Trapp’s at their tailgate before and after the matches I attend. I always end up heading home about 1 hour after the match is over. I will hate if/when this ends.

  4. There is a problem with the line you drew on Zips Mens Soccer attendance. You have no data points in the graph from 2004-08. I know that before they began selling season tickets in 2009, attendance did not break 1000. If it did, it was rarely, and not on average. You cannot show that line as average attendance declining since 2004; since, 2010, perhaps, but not since 2004. Attendance likely increased from 04-10, then dropped with a slight uptick in 15 when the Zips returned to the College Cup.
  5. I'll call this Zips related since former Zips Mens Soccer MF Will Trapp plays for the Columbus Crew and is the current team captain. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/10/columbus_crew_sc_mls_team_migh.html#incart_river_mobile_index This would make sense if Cincinnati were to get a team. Also opens up Detroit. Neither market would then be pulling from Columbus. However, I would hate to see Columbus lose one of MLS' founding teams and for MLS access to be further from us. ALthough not super convenient, it is nice to have MLS access just a 1.5 hour drive away immediately off I-71.

    Watched that this morning. I won't spoil it with the details.
  8. Disappointing to not get the clean sheet. Jared said in his interview they sometimes focus too much on the negative, and so he didn't go on about that blunder. As I mentioned, I was happy with the Zips'/Joao's response, but they have to learn from those mistakes. To win against the best teams, those mistakes cannot be committed.

    I know you're not. That was my point, though. DeAndre played MF and never player defender prior to meeting CP. I guess the way I worded it wasn't clear..."...where he convinced a very talented now right back named DeAndre Yedlin to first move to playing that position (from playing MF)"

    Great to see the Plain Dealer have this article, but seems to be another lazy writer. When talking about CP's experience with US Soccer, he should have also mentioned Caleb's stint as a U18 MNT assistant, where he convinced a very talented Right Back named DeAndre Yedlin to move to playing that position.
