Every Major League Soccer (MLS) season, we've wonder why so many New Yorkers appear to snub the New York Red Bulls (NYRB) for the New York City Football Club (NYCFC).
Since NYCFC arrived in The Bronx in 2013, we've been loyal fans of both teams. But it appears that we've been an anomaly, because most New Yorkers seem to consider the New Jersey based NYBR, a New Jersey team.
However, as of today, we've decided to abandon NYRB for the following reasons:
- NYRB transferred Kemar Lawrence, who was, arguably, the best defender in MLS
- NYRB traded Bradley Wright Phillips - unarguable one the best strikers in MLS history
- And YouTube TV doesn't carry MSG
Update | 02.29.20: I just found out that the NYRB traded Luis Robles, unarguably the best goalkeeper in the history of the NYRB, to David Beckham's Inter Miami! Apparently, this happened in December. And unsurprisingly, Beckham named Robles the football club's captain.
