RBR 145: The Unkindest Cut of All

The Red Bulls managed to take the lead in Seattle, and then for the first time ever in 2015, lost a game from a leading position. FIFA is also still in the news, but possibly for one of the best reasons ever. Dan Feuerstein calls in to give his opinion on it. Dave Martinez goes to Cuba, and then talks to us? It may sound crazy, but it happened. Finally the guys preview Houston, give their two cents on FIFA, and relive another RBR moment in the walk to Episode 150.

RBR 144: Game over, man Game over!

A 2-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union. A bunch of FIFA Officials get arrested in the US and Switzerland. A match away to the Seattle Sounders. These are tough times being a New York Red Bulls fan. Is there any silver lining? Maybe it’s food? Reminder: There are only a few shows left until the old Red Bull Rant feeds go dark; make sure to subscribe to the new ones.

With a bye week on the horizon, there isn’t much to talk about, especially with an impressive 2-1 victory over Columbus Crew SC.
