    As I was watching the Metros-Fire game on saturday, played on that ugly ugly safeplay football field, but in front of a very nice, full looking crowd, I got to thinking, what at this point has a more negative impact on the league --

    Playing in giant stadiums (Arrowhead), where on TV the crowds look atrocious, or playing at a place like Naperville where the field looks terrible, but the crowd looks really good (full house).

    Looks like Empty Arrowhead is way out front at this point...

    It depends on whether or not Arrowhead has gridiron lines on it or not. I assumed it didn't, therefore I voted for Naperville.

    i've watched gridiron games where there are very noticeable soccer lines (very nice, by the way)... who really cares?

    as for the pitch and pitch size, i'll give you that... but there have been several stupid people that have asked why the fire don't cut their grass shorter, so it's close enough in appearance that the normal viewer could still see that as grass



    fire home matches provide excitement, you hear the fans... that is huge... the best games to watch of any league are the ones where the crowd is into the match...

    kc, there is nothing... it's devoid of life... it's looks like a bunch of guys playing in front of empty seats (even front row)... sure they make money on the place (might be a cash call for the league, but hunt is making money by controlling revenue streams, so he doesn't care), but the place is like a ************ing graveyard

    there is no life, no atmosphere, no excitement... it's horrible, it annoys the hell out of me
