Game Tomorrow - Don't Care

I was going to write a basic game preview tonight but then Rapids Rabbi published this.  No criticism of Mark, its a good article with interesting information.  My issue is this quote from Hudson:
We know the changes we need to make. It’s going to take a couple of transfer windows. It’s going to take more time on the training pitch.
That's a B.S. excuse in a league where Chicago went from 31 to 55 points in one offseason.  Where Atlanta came in as an expansion team and put up 55 points in an inaugural season.  Where LAFC is on pace for 58 points this year and they have yet to play a home game in their first season.  This isn't a case where we've got leadership stuck with a mess not of their own making.  Every player on this roster (except maybe Serna) signed their contract while Smith was either part of the player management team or GM.  Hudson is Smith's picked coach to take all these new players we got this offseason and mold them into a playoff team this year, by the standards they themselves set.

Essentially the Rapids are once again playing the fans for suckers, promising that with just enough time they'll build something we can be proud to support.  In reality, these statements are code for "Smith and Hudson don't know what the hell they are doing".  Until they do, or they're replaced with somebody who does, this team will be a laughing stock and not worth the time I've been spending writing about them.  Expect nothing but news analysis here until something changes.
