Revs Content In Gillette Stadium, Are You?
According to the North Attleboro Sun-Chronicle, the New England Revolution are happy where they are (where they are being Gillette Stadium). Now I'm not on the ground there in chowder country so my opinion (as usual) may not be worth a damn but the vibe I get is that they are the only ones who are down with life at the razor.
To be clear, it's not the SSS fetishist in me talking. I had a lot to say about Seattle's decision to play in an enormodrome and no one is happier to report that I was wrong about that one than I am. But I think the difference with Seattle is that it would appear that when the soccer team came along the ownership said to the football/stadium staff something of the effect of "you now have a sister, treat her as you would want to be treated." I don't get the impression the same convo happened in Foxboro, where if we are all being honest, the Revs get treated like the ugly stepsister who lives in the basement that no one wants to talk about.
In short, an MLS team can look major league in an NFL stadium...New England just isn't that team. Am I wrong about this? Possibly. Either way my opinion is of little import as I'm not someone they are trying to sell tickets to. So what do you say Revs fans? Are you guys happy where you are?
