Even if no teams wants to take Wynalda, he proved during his short stint at Silverbacks that he can turn things around and is capable of coaching. If the change in league format for the 2013 season was applied in 2012, Silverbacks would be second or third in the league in the fall session. I think that speaks volumes about what he could do with the team that was dreadful in the first half of the season.
What would the Southern Baptist say? I'll bet there isn't a better looing butt in politics. Vote yes to the butt. Does he work at Jack's New York Deli in Smyrna?
Love Brian Haynes. He's paid his dues as an assistant in the MLS for years, it's about time he got a shot to coach a team. This isn't your old Silverbacks, once Wynalda came in the team culture did a complete 180. We finished 2012 strong and look to take the momentum into 2013. It's a great park, it's cheap, it's pro futbol. If you are a REAL footie fan, you need to come out to Silverbacks Park this season. Using the "wait till the MLS" excuse is lame, and you'll probably end up waiting until 2020 at the earliest.
And thanks to Creative Loafing, for the interview with Coach Haynes, he's a class act.
Hope to see some new faces at the stadium this year. Anyone interested in fanatical support of our club, get in touch with the apparently amusing and too serious Ultras, we'd be glad to have you. We're having too much fun to pay attention to the Skillet types.
Come out and join us.
Thanks for such a great article, Clay! You really did a great job showing Shab's connection to the movement, and talking about the work she does that's meaningful, instead of silly things like her favorite foods and color. ;-)
You have always been a good journalist, even from when I remember you in college, and I'm glad that you are on the Creative Loafing team. You bring credibility, power, and professionalism to CL, and they're lucky to have you - you make them look good :-) Keep up the great work, Clay, and Shab and OOHA!
We are winning, y'all! Housing is a human right and soon it will be inconceivable that we as a society ever let anyone go without a decent place to call home. :-)
I totally agree the Ultras tend to take themselves way too seriously at times, but at least they're attempting to create a proper footy atmosphere. This is the 2nd most attended team in the NASL. If Blank is smart, he will work with them in some fashion, either as a farm team or just buy/partner with them and move them up to MLS.
If the MLS comes to Atlanta they'll skip right over the terribly run Silverbacks.
It's funny that they're the only club in America to want Wynalda as an actual head coach. He's pretty much begging for a real coaching job and everyone else just laughs. But not the Silverbacks.
A good takeaway from them though: watching the Atlanta "Ultras" is funnier than a trip to a comedy club.
Yeah...I want THAT guy fixing my food. :-p
How do you create facts in front of a camera lens and a microphone?
Surreptitious recording is surreptitious recording. It is unpalatable now matter who does it. What you meant to say is that it's bad when the other guys do it but it's cool when our boys do it.
The ends etc etc....
Yeah, unfortunately I fear once he starts dealing with state legislature, that soul will be ice cold.
There is a difference between unearthing facts and attempting to create facts with provocation and slick editing. That's the way it works.
"Waiter, there's a hair in my soup."
Modern Atlanta has been hosting their events in unused and forgotten spaces since 2007.
A lot of the things he suggests sound like they're well-meaning but would actually just lead to a lot of dysfunction.
So if he does it it's a glorious expose and if James O'Keefe does it, it's a shameful, despicable cowardly deception.
That's the way it works.
Yeah baby!! You forgot to mention that pre-season friendlies are usually free. Keep an eye out at AtlantaSilverbacks.com for details and come on down to the jungle for some real football.
Grant has pumped life into this hood. Give credit where credit is due.
