In other news, we have new leaders in the "biggest hipster group" in US Soccer.
I know a few people who have gone to DCFC games and know one who was pretty involved in the NGS before moving. Let's just say they took the crown for biggest hipsters a couple years back. Really seems like more of a group concerned with being known for being a fan base more than concerned about the club.
This argument seems to crop up on social media once a year or so, and the response from their camp is always "we don't want to be in MLS, we like cheering for our players because they play for the love of the game" in addition to feeling like they're closer to the club than they would be if it's MLS. Which is fine, whatever, but they throw a hissy fit every time it's brought up about how MLS is only for the money. Well, duh. Ever since 1869 in Cincinnati that's what sports has been about. If you want to keep cheering for your summer wooden bat league equivalent soccer team, that's cool, but the rest of the state would rather get behind an MLS team. Would you rather root for the Detroit Tigers or the Battle Creek Bombers?
And all that for a team that started in 2012.
Burnley is 5000-1 to win the Premier League next season....
That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
Why do bookies put the odds that high in the first place? Even college football odds tend to max out around 2000 or 3000 for teams like EMU and Georgia State.
