    What a spot in the face of the league and DC by all those fans who were already there for Spain – El Salvador and could not be bothered to stick around for at least some of DC-Columbus! Looked like at least 90% of people left right away. It ended up being perhaps the worst game of MLS weekend, but they could not have known that in advance. I understand that these people just saw Iniesta, Xavi and David Villa play. Still, you are already there, it doesn’t cost you anything…

    Shows how much work there is still left to earn respect of soccer fans in our country.

      Nope. Most of the DCU season ticket holders weren’t given seats close to the field. I talked to 3 folks who ended up in the upper deck.

    Yup, very few DCU fans wanted this to happen. About 16 k stayed to watch MLS.

    announced attendance for the Spain-El Salvador friendly was a little over 53k, I’d say about 14-16k stuck around for MLS action. Money well wasted; Parking at Fed Ex was $40, let alone the cost of tickets for the double header.

      Reminds me of the time I went to see a double feature of Joe vs. the Volcano and some other movie. WEAK.

    I defend MLS to many folks, but the 2nd half was quite possibly the worst MLS play I’ve seen in a long time. Incredibly frustrating to watch both teams long ball, after ineffective long ball. Don’t even mention the atrocious PK. As by someone else mentioned it’s probably for the best that many people didn’t stick around for the 2nd game.
