Season Ticket Member Event Highlights: Child Steals Show with Blunt Question, Supporters Upset Over Lot Changes
Kids will be kids
Correction: An earlier version of this post included a question and answer that didn’t accurately portray a response from club president Brian Billelo regarding the moving of the STM lot. The tweet has been replaced and I (Sam Minton) would like to apologize to Brian, the New England Revolution, and our readers.
The New England Revolution held their season ticket member event and fans got to speak their mind and ask questions.
Club president Brian Billelo, sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena, and DeJuan Jones answered questions from the crowd. Here are the highlights from opening remarks made by Billelo and Arena along with fan questions.
Glad to see the team recognized the value of keeping Brad Feldman and Charlie Davies. For Revs fans I think they will offer some superior knowledge of the club compared to announcers covering multiple teams.
This is an interesting comment just considering how far the Revs have come. When it comes to selling players to Europe and making profits from transfers, the team has improved a ton.
Making the playoffs should be the bare minimum for the Revs in this new format. If they fail to there will need to be wholesale changes.
Let’s pour one out for the photographers who will miss the beautiful shots of day games. I will be having a lot more late-night drives from Gillette Stadium this season.
Arena takes his cues from Bill Belichick when it comes to releasing injury info. That won’t be changing in 2023.
Billelo answered questions about the supporters lot being moved.
An interesting and rare tactical response from a fan question. Arena’s right and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bou out on the wing to get both him and Vrioni into the starting XI.
Jones is correct, Messi clears Penaldo.
This echoes what we heard from Jones earlier in the day. The Revs need to stay locked in for 90 minutes.
Banking on the World Cup is a choice. If the Revs really want to attract more fans, having their own stadium would help.
We stan our short king. With how long he has been on trial it would have been stunning of Boateng went elsewhere. I still think he is a valuable bench player who can turn the tide of games.
Not surprising but confirmation nonetheless. If placed on the season injury list, this opens up a roster and international spot.
RIP to regular season bus trips it appears. I will use this to plug a story I did with new Riders president Aoife Creighton who fell in love with the Revs on a bus trip. At least they will have them if the Revs make the playoffs.
First off, it should be noted that a child asked this question. Kids sometimes say things without realizing how mean they were but this child might have a future in journalism.
This might be one of the biggest answers of the night in terms of insight. Billelo basically puts the blame on the Patriots for the turf at Gillette. NFL players aren’t happy with turf so maybe we could see this change permanently. Also, this emphasizes why having your own stadium is important.
