The Cosmos/Strikers this is not.

We here in south Florida want MLS. Come out and support the real league on Saturday. Cheer on MLS because it is good for America and good for Miami.

You idiots are so damn stupid. MLS will only come here if we support the Strikers. This is a great opportunity for all of us.

^ Agreed.

Rooting AGAINST the home town team will only make you look stupid. Send RBNY back to NY with a positive message for MLS brass: South Florida supports it's local club.

If we want MLS to take notice, we need to act like we don't need them, much like Portland, Vancouver, and Montréal did.

Those markets did not need MLS. MLS needed them. Right now MLS doesn't want anything to do with South Florida. They are hell bent on awarding a SECOND team to NYC, so why would they waste their energy to look for investors to bring MLS to South Florida if people show up and root for the Red Bulls?

Get over yourselves and support the Strikers. They've sold more season tickets already in 3 months as the Strikers then they ever did in 5 years as Miami FC. There is a billboard on I-95 near Lockhart promoting the team. Ads on the Sun-Sentinel's website. By badmouthing your local club and refusing to support it, you're only going to be left behind.
