    What this team really needs is Hair of the Dog.

    If we don't come out hard we're going to get absolutely crushed. NY has run up 5-0 and 4-1 wins against Orlando and Columbus in the last two weeks. If we play like we did last night, it'll be worse than the seven-goal drubbing.

    Perez can say he won't single out players for criticism, but if he doesn't send a message by at least benching Chris Mavinga for a game (I know how talented he is, I've followed him more or less since being thrown to the lions as a teenager at Liverpool) he will lose the room.

    That performance was god-awful, one of the laziest and least-motivated single half performances a player on this team has ever offered.

    They're probably exceedingly lucky, in a way, that a pandemic has made people desperate to get out and do something.

    Still, the boos will be fucking fierce if they capitulate in Toronto like they did in Philly.

    Why go to games? Why experience what the thread OP indicates?


    Because

    We

    ENJOY

    Doing

    So

    *************


    Things people I know have cried over or I have seen people cry over upon resuming after Covid



    • haircuts
    • taking a bus
    • seeing a friend
    • swimming
    • going to a mall
    • watching a hockey game
    • having an ice cream
    • going to the beach
    • going back to work
    • having a beer on a patio
    • shopping at a Dollerrama


    We have 6 weeks of hot girl summer & damned if we all are not going to enjoy this brief respite before Wave 4 hits HOW WE WANT TO


    Me? I cried driving down the Gardiner last week & first seeing the stadium



    Like, I get some on here are die-hard cynics & die-hard only care when they win types but a HECK of a lot of us are here because we take long term enjoyment of following this team which often includes going to games.


    This is how football is around the whole world. People go or follow because it is what they do, not because of the quality of the team.


    So people in here can do "you gotta be stupid to do this" talk but millions around the world are equally stupid and ultimately enjoying it


    So yeah.....I'm with 10K of equally stupid people on Saturday...deal with it

    Hah ha! 😂 I thought your addiction comparison was on point.
    Can someone who’s good at photoshop take the ‘all for one’ with the TFC logo and replace it with ‘I’m with stupid’?

    Why are people stupid for attending? I know I love this team and am gonna spend my Saturday night having a drink and watching TFC. No one is forcing me to do that. I do it because it is enjoyable to me, even when they suck.

    I am going to grab a glass of wine & watch Omar screw up, Oso do something interesting, Soteldo weave some magic, somebody probably get injured & us probably lose.

    It is to each their own in deciding if they are comfortable in attending and how they want to do it ie finding some wide open space or in the supporters section. At the end of the days its a personal choice and there really is no wrong answer.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    To be honest I look at the original post as a bigger shot at management (they don't deserve our money) ... watching Ali/Manning do nothing but put out stupid tweets that they think are funny just shows how disconnected they are with the fans.

    Will always be loyal to the club, just don't have to like it. This feels worse than 2012 and i still believe but Ali needs to be next to go.

    it's just poor roster building + transitional year (s).

    we're still in the hangover from the 2017 success imo, all those guys became legends so very hard emotionally (and physically) to move on from them.

    also an easy out for mgmt to keep playing guys with so much TFC cred that that fans will never really be too annoyed with them.

    Osorio seemed acutely aware of how bad they were.

    “We’ve spoken about that and we don’t want to let that to happen again and we won’t let that happen again,” said TFC midfielder Jonathan Osorio. “Everybody is motivated to change what’s happening.”

    I like Osorio, but statements like that make you look naïve. Just say we've got to give more effort, and not "wont let that happen again", because its going to, we're going to get pummeled at some point again.

    The core of this team is old, time to play the kids.

    This is easy. We are supporters, not fans. But what is baffling is the 50 + years of sellouts for the Leafs

    The selllouts are driven by the same thing that drove upticks in CFL & NFL & EPL viewership & attendance - decades of the game on TV at the same time each week.


    States

    Football - Friday night high school, Saturday college, Sunday NFL - its the fall life

    Baseball - its ALWAYS there if you want it from March until October

    Basketball - tune in on Christmas day & watch games every Saturday or Sunday & midweek


    Canada

    Hockey - literally 70 years of Saturday night games on the one station everybody could get


    CFL - the one sports station in the country puts it on every Friday night since the mid 80's


    ******


    In this world, with fragmented TV and streaming & entertainment options, the "this is what we do at this time of the week" aspect of sports is pretty much gone. You couldn't recreate the CFL/TSN partnership now if you tried - MLSE has and its not working in Toronto for the CFL.

    BUT, people come to support teams due to something - and TFC is a known in this town. Some of us will always go & to get the crowds they are getting now of 10K or so in the middle of the summer where people are still afraid of Covid but we also know we have only so much time until another Covid winter returns - that's not bad.

    Teams less then 20 years old and the league not much more - give it time.

    What do you mean? If you pick up any game tickets the credits are applied to your purchase.

    I think they mean the concession credits for leaving money with MLSE.
