Dave has been covering soccer since 2007, plying his craft with TheOffside as the Editor for Major League Soccer content, while manning the helm as the lone writer for the New York Red Bulls blog. Dave has also featured on the World Cup Blog, writing about the United States Men’s National Team as well as the Argentine National Team, and has worked under the American Soccer News umbrella.
While he follows the game in all corners of the globe, he has an affinity for the American version and is a tortured Metrostars/Red Bulls fan. He has covered the New York Red Bulls for the Daily Harrison and has written for the McGill University newspaper, The McGill Tribune, where he was one of three people in history to cover Canadian college football.
Mike prefers the passion of the supporters section to the press box.
Patrick MacDonald was born and raised in New Jersey, but is relatively new to the soccer world. His interest transitioned from a World Cup follower to a full-time soccer fan in the summer of 2009. He started following the Red Bulls in 2010 and began writing an NJ.com blog about the team, as well as the World Cup shortly thereafter. He has since become the Red Bull blogger at Global Football Today and has recently thrown his lot into the podcast game with The Red Bull Rant podcast.
Pat can be found in the stands and at the supporters pubs for most Red Bull matches at Red Bull Arena. He also lives and dies Red, White, and Blue at most NJ/NY area Men’s National team matches.
Jason Corliss has lived and breathed and played soccer since his earliest years growing up on Miami Beach, supporting the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers teams of Ray Hudson and Nene Cubillas. After moving to New Jersey in the early 80′s, and without a team to support (no thanks, NY Cosmos), Jason eventually began an often unrequited love affair with Tottenham Hotspur that continues to this day. But, with dawning of a new domestic league, and a team in his backyard, he pledged his allegiance to Metro/RBNY and has never looked back.
A board member of Viking Army SC, Jason can be found on the perch at the bottom of section 102 on gamedays. He lives in north Jersey with his wife and his daughter, who he’s training to compete for a spot on the US Women’s World Cup squad in 2027.
Eric Giacometti was born and raised in New York, with soccer always playing a prominent role in his life. His RBNY fandom began with their run through the 2008 Playoffs, and has grown ever since (despite the 2009 season).
With the success of the 2010 team coupled with the hype of the World Cup in South Africa, his growing soccer interest spurred him to start his own, albeit short-lived, soccer blog. Eventually, he took over the Red Bulls blog at The Offside from the Emperor himself, where he continues to give his take on all things RBNY.
An avid supporter of his hometown Red Bulls, the USMNT, Terps Soccer, and A.S. Roma in Serie A, Eric spends most of his days reading, writing, and watching all things soccer.
