I don't think it was quite that bad...

2008 was a disappointing season for sure. But I don't think it was as bad as Luciano Emilio says here in this quote from after United's last match of 2008, a 4-2 loss to Marathon at RFK in October. [I just read the article today...]
"We wanted to put on a good performance and finish the season on a good note, but as always, we had a bad result."
Emphasis mine.

Well, maybe. You're probably right. But on some levels, its nice to know that they players, like many of us, believed that they should have had a successful season and are disappointed that they did not (which is one possible explanation for overly negative attitude). I much prefer self-criticism that may be excessively harsh than, "Oh well, we gave it the ol' college try." Now, let's hope they resolve to do something about it (although being so down that they abandon the team for greener pastures is not the "something" I have in mind).

Also, wonder whether the quote was in English (Emilio's third/fourth language) or through an interpreter. Nuance can be tough with those barriers.

How much more money per ticket are DC United Soccer fans willing to pay to fund a new stadium? Prince George's doesn't have any money; officials are raising property taxes, borrowing from other agencies and cutting policemen, closing schools. We can't afford it, but since you all are so enthusiastic, we know you'll pay more - how much ($2,000 - $3,000 a year). Thanks, come build, when your money starts coming in
