Default SUM is Doing a Great Job with USMNT

6000 to watch the senior team. Not sure they have played in a US stadium with that many open seats since 1990

They sell that game out here. So stupid. Glad Taylor Twelan talked about it on live TV.

Last soccer election was about business acumen v. soccer acumen.

Everyone thought business acumen won out.

Not sure we got either (although will say it was a good first game for then new coach).

USMNT is dull, boring soccer.

How can US Soccer be so bad at soccer?

I tried to watch but kept switching over to Wheel of Fotune reruns which was way more fun.

Given the roster (nearly all MLS players) what did you expect?

BTW US won 3-0 over Panama.

Why is it NT games are either a) played in a place that doesn't care about soccer, resulting in an empty stadium, or b) played in a soccer hotbed near the southern border against a Latin American team, resulting in a stadium full of the opposing team's supporters?

My favorite NT game in recent memory was the snow bowl against Costa Rica in Denver. That was awesome. (We don't win that, we probably wouldn't have gone to Brazil).

Does SUM get Attendance money? I know they get the Broadcast money but not sure about attendance.

That being said yes that was a terrible location choice. If they are not playing Mexico that is going to fill the stadium with Mexican National team fans, at least look at where MLS teams are getting a big attendance (Atlanta & Seattle) and play there and hope for the best.
