J/K - I seriously hope not - otherwise there are going to be some seriousy protests planned on the Capital Building. But anyway - I had also heard some people say that they felt that if Ratner had to extend the contract in NJ - he may sell the team. He wants them in Brooklyn and out of New Jersey - PERIOD! I suppose he hates NJ, but if he can convince New Jerseyans to still support the team after they move to Brooklyn - he'll tolerate our money.
    The current scenerio that Ratner has with NJ is like having your spouse divorce you and then move back into your house because they're waiting for the right circumstance to move out. All the time they're still at your house, you're having to shell money out for their living expenses while they entertain other beaus. You'd be a sucker to to live like this, right? Well, that's how Brooklyn Bruce is treating us New Jerseyans.
    The Sports Authority should tell Bruce "Oh sorry! Since you wanted to move to Brooklyn so bad, we thought you'd be gone, so we've scheduled other events for 2008 and beyond. I guess you'll have to find someplace in NY to play". No lease renegotiation, because in the long run that will just help Brooklyn Bruce get his eminent domain fueled pork palace!! And most New Jerseyans will NOT go to Brooklyn if and when the Nets move!!

    I agree with you - but the problem is that New Jersey has no backbone. This has been perfectly demonstrated by our so called representatives through the Jets and Giants deal - which if you read those threads you will see that they now have naming rights over the ENTIRE meadowlands Sports Complex, so bye bye Meadowlands. Then of course there is the wonderful New "York" Red Bulls. Untill New Jerseyans care about this state and develop a sense of pride and identity - the politicians will continue to sell us out.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Just to let everyone know - I have not forgotten this. I have a new domain name that i will develop into another website. If you would like to domain name - just PM me. The site of course isn't up, but it will be in about a month I suppose. The domain name is short, sweet and to the point and I think everyone will like it.

    We still need to get petitions going and so forth. Also, having shirts designed wouldn't be too bad. I hate using cafe press, I think they're such a ripoff when it comes to the wholesale price, but really I'm not trying to get rich off this thing. But if anyone else knows of any inexpensive, on demand, print outfits that do coffee mugs and t-shirts, please let me know. Also, if there are any artists out there who wish to contribute some art work, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't forgotten about this either. If we, and other people who feel the same way we do, don't ever speak up and take some kind of action, then no one ever will.

    All it takes is a few people to get the ball rolling!

    I have wanted to look into starting up a petition myself, but I have been so busy with my regular day-to-day life that I have not yet had a chance to look into it. I still have the link to that petition website you told me about.

    Now that you are in the process of setting up a new website, I'll hold off on doing anything myself until I see what you have going on.

    Two heads (or more) are better than one, or so the saying goes!

    Well well - I got the domain name. Just making this clear that this new site has no association with AboutNewJersey.com at all. DropNY.com is the domain name. Nothing up yet, but it wil need supporters and contributors.

    I just can't stop smiling. The Red Bulls lost their first game.

    Red Bulls tumble against D.C. United
    By Dylan Butler / MLSnet.com Staff

    E. RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Red Bulls suffered their first defeat of the 2006 season Saturday, and they can thank a New Jersey boy for that.

    Alecko Eskandarian, whose father Andranik starred for the Cosmos at Giants Stadium, scored a double there to lift D.C. United to a 4-1 win over the Red Bulls. It was also the first regular season loss ever for Red Bulls coach Mo Johnston, who just two days earlier thought he was being forced out.

    Eskandarian capped a dominating opening 45 minutes with his second goal of the year, and second against the Red Bulls. He picked up Freddy Adu's deflected cross and put a low shot past Tony Meola from 14 yards out. The Montvale, N.J., native celebrated in style, grabbing a can of the energy drink from Jamil Walker on the bench, taking a swig and then spitting it out on the artificial turf.

    The most dangerous chance the Red Bulls had in the first half came in the 45th minute when Mike Magee, making his first start of the season, took a Youri Djorkaeff cross off his chest but D.C. United goalkeeper Troy Perkins did well to come off his line and challenge the ball before a shot could be taken. Magee dislocated his right pinky finger on the collision.

    Things went from bad to worse for the Red Bulls in the 59th minute when Eskandarian made it 2-0 on a great series of quick passes from Brian Carroll and Ben Olsen. Eskandarian blasted the ball over Meola's left shoulder from eight yards out.

    In case there was any doubt of the final result, Facundo Erpen put an end to that emphatically with a 40-yard rocket that Meola could only turn and watch fly over his right shoulder. It was the Argentine defender's second goal of the year, and his second against the Bulls.

    For the first time this season, the Red Bulls started in a 3-5-2 formation with Djorkaeff moving behind the forward tandem of Edson Buddle and Jean Philippe Peguero. The Haitian international forward, who was acquired in a trade with Colorado less than 24 hours earlier, arrived at Newark International Airport at 12:57 p.m. ET and three hours later was in the starting lineup.

    The Red Bulls struggled offensively with the new formation and lineup and rarely tested Perkins, who was four minutes from his third consecutive clean sheet. Djorkaeff scored his second goal of the year in the 86th minute slotting the ball past Perkins, who came off his line, on a feed from Magee. It was the first goal scored against United in 338 minutes, since the Red Bulls hit for two in the first 18 minutes of the season.

    But D.C. came right back and made it 4-1 two minutes later when second-half substitute Walker ran onto a slick pass from Carroll and chipped his first goal of the year past Meola from 10 yards out.

    Of the four players listed as questionable on the injury report, only Jeff Parke, who has been the Red Bulls' most consistent defender through three games, was ruled out.

    The Red Bulls meet former coach Bob Bradley and Chivas USA next Saturday at The Home Depot Center, while United return home to RFK Stadium where they will face FC Dallas.

    I do promote them on the site, although I agree not as much at the moment. As for the avatar - I created this avatar for another messageboard when the Devils were in the finals for the Stanley Cup and the Nets were in the NBA Championships.

    BTW - I have been on the NJ Pride messageboard in the past and saw that you are a member there.

    Well they're only referred to as NY on their website and in the news - New York Red Bulls They must be trying to appease New Jerseyans by giving us crumbs by advertising them as NY/NJ at the stadium. Well with me it's not going to work. Are the Mets, Knicks, Yankees called the NY/NJ Mets, etc?

    BTW way - read this month's NJ Monthly for a nice arrogant article about Brett Yormark, president and CEO of the "(don't call them New Jersey)" Nets. I hope they lose now too. Here is a tiny quote "When Yormark is asked to defien Brooklyn, he says, it's "an iconic brand that transcends the metropolitan area...[and] is going to present some tremendous opportunities for us. Go to Europe and you'll find Brooklyn Lager," he notes. Yormark pauses before attempting to characterize New Jersey. When I think of New Jersey, I think of -- what does Bruce [Ratner] say? -- the underdog." Basically the article is about how he's trying to build up the Nets into this brand that will allow them to move the Nets over to Brooklyn, with New Jerseyans following like the rats in the Pied Piper.

    I haven't had much time to work on the new site, but I do have the store "up", howerver it's not ready to go live yet though. I ordered a t-shirt to make sure they look good (I'm concerned the pocket image might be too large). You can check out the design here - DropNY.com Store Let me know what you think and also about the prices. I also have bumper stickers which I think look good.
