Oh man, 100% agreed. I moved from DC, where I attended around 7 matches per year. In the 4 years I've been here, I've attended 3 Fire matches. Why? It's a pain in the arse to get there, and then you arrive and it's 30% full, with a sad trumpet echoing to Tetris theme for 90 dull minutes. Then you shuffle out, get back on a bus and wait in traffic for an hour, $60 poorer. Toyota Park and FCD Stadium should be the warning to any future development--in an urban center near public transit, or nothing at all.
Pretty sure both Columbus and DC are on the relocation list. When the ownership of the Crew themselves have been in the press throwing up their hands and saying "We can't seem to make this work," you have to assume they're looking elsewhere. My thought would be that the NY franchise could either be a relocated team, or that you award to 20th team to NY, and then relocate the Crew to the next viable market.
