    I like Man City because when I first started watching English football in the late 1990’s they were a 3rd division team. I always liked the underdogs doing well, and I hated Man United. I also liked City’s light blue kit, and I saw them in person in Baltimore a few years back.

    Still cheer for underdog teams such as when Leicester won the premier league, and I always cheer for lower division teams in the cup competitions, but among the “big” teams in 2018. City is my favorite of the bunch.

    Good Fair podcast I like the back and forth banter as it gets the listeners to here and consider all sides. Disagree with the one listener who said that Kartik was intolerable last week. I think Kartik was making a good point. I think MLS is looking at TV dollars they’ve probably feel they’ve done all they can do on the fan stadium experience. They need the TV experience and money to take things to the next level.

    Kartik has a very rigid view of what it means to be a fan of a club. The fact is the majority of US fans in any sport only follow their club through television and social media rather than actually going to the games live. Is someone living in the New York/New Jersey area who hasn’t gone to a Giants game in 5 years still allowed to call themselves a true supporter under Kartik’s criteria?

    I’ll grant him that overseas fans of a club don’t share the same connection as those who live in the local area, but in these days they probably follow just as closely as most of those locals, save for the minority who attend more than a match or two a year.

    With that said, also disagree with the practice of having games played in other countries, whether it be La Liga, NFL, NBA, NHL, etc.
