That’s a whole thing here Turtleneck. I kinda hate them. They’re exclusionary hipsters who are one of the main voices actually fighting against Detroit getting an MLS team because they’d prefer to have their little underground club, as hipsters are want to do. Fuck those guys.

Detroit does not have a USL team, and that is not the crowd at the USL games here. The team here plays in a 13-14k seat stadium, and 5k would be an amazing turnout. When they are gone the city will have a nice empty stadium and one less reason to convince people outside the city to visit.

Whatever minor league the Detroit team is in. There is one and at first it seemed neat and fun but now that they’re trying to stand in the way of a real league they’re douchebags and I hope their team folds.

you guys realize that's a semi pro team in Detroit or 4th division that averaged nearly 5k this year, I went to one of their matches a while back while in town and it was pretty crazy. Obviously it was nothing compared to the Sounders match I went to a few years back, that was super crazy

Yeah, I know. And they’re fucking assholes hipster douchebags about it. They could be cool and say “yeah let’s bring in mls and we’ll do the same stuff and get a ton more people involved” but instead they want to keep their little club thing so they can be ironic or whatever and they don’t want the big guy moving into town so they don’t become irrelevant. Fuck them on every fucking level matty. Fuck them. I hope the team folds.

ManU would be a satellite subscription with all the channels, likely to fail when faced with adversity but loaded with options and expensive.

It sounds like the Detroit MLS bid might be abandoning building a new stadium at the ridiculous jail site and instead are bringing the Fords into it with the goal being that they’d play at Ford Field.

I do not like the idea of watching games inside of a fuckin warehouse in July when I could be outside. But, it’s better than nothing I guess if that’s the route it goes.

Here’s a link. It is unclear if the Ford Field idea would be temporary or permanent
