WASHINGTON - After a seemingly eternal wait for a new stadium spanning 21 years, D.C. United fan Sam Spearing stated that she would now like to remain at RFK stadium stating, "What a piece of shit," about the new Audi Field.
"No big flags, no T.I.F.O rigging, no banners, an off-center supporters group view, no self ticket control, no roof, a shrunken capacity in the supporters section and the supporters put right next to a luxury box section.... why the hell is anyone excited for this dumpster fire," stated Spearing to The Nutmeg News.
Spearing was excited to see the rendering for the new stadium when the rumor started that United was finally going to have a new home, but after the ownership group indicated their intention to do everything possible to screw over the loyal supporters that stuck with them despite their inability to do anything about the stadium for the past 22 seasons her enthusiasm waned.
"RFK is terrible, but at least we could control our own experience," stated Spearing. "Now we are going to a new sterile stadium with virtually no privileges and we will be stuck there for the long term future. It's awful. Atlanta, Orlando, San Jose each attempted to cater to both the luxury boxes and hard core fans. This stadium just jams us all in one corner where it seems like our team ownership is doing everything to remove any kind of passion that we showed for our team during losing seasons when they weren't even around."
D.C. United stated that they understood Spearings concern about the supporters experience but stated that if she wanted a better experience she should upgrade to a new LUXURY box where she could hang any banner she wanted from the inside of her location provided that it fits the requirements allowed in by stadium security and isn't affixed to a location permanently.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Spearing stares at the ticket membership page for the 3rd day in a row without buying anything.
