-- great actor he's funny he's host of the price is right.
But he also likes to drink beer and -- on his team like the rest of us.

They qualify for the MLS playoffs in their first season Drew Carey pleasure to see you my friend thanks -- what did you go to fire the team -- there.
I -- I think it's just obviously we have the best coaching staff we have.
Great facilities are taller players are really good and that it was really tough expansion team nobody -- may be up playoffs and have a lot since 1998 when they are an expansion.
So we're -- -- that our players the coaches do a real good job and fans have a lot to do with the two.
-- and and I understand that when you bought and you said that -- -- two things I wanna deal with one condition is -- -- a marching band double talk about that the second.
But also never tell you want it would involve fans in a way that that nobody in the MLS ever has how do you change the fans situation.
Yes no way sports is doing that -- that's I'm excited to come on fox business and talk about it.
You we are fans are season ticket holders lets anybody that pays a 125 dollars a year.
Has the right to vote out our general manager and fired general manager for years -- So you like the way if you anything you root for you're just thought about the Mets that they don't like hey you know that the jets you -- -- -- your cowboys your Detroit Lions fan.
Every four years you would be able to vote out the general manager.
And make an actual management change in the team if you're a season ticket holders you have things like he's incredible -- incredible you don't believe -- I only have really boring I don't like about what Obama's doing whether regarding executive pay is.
He says shareholders should have a greater right to fire the guy the top and I agree with that -- -- kind of -- -- that.
Yeah absolutely I think it's a good model -- offered to sport what an odd to think of it if you're exports -- your -- being spent all this money had season tickets parking.
You know by its stars and things like that and doubt what recourse you have the team does badly you can stop going to the game.
That's real recourse to stop going to probably that what sport town.
I got to ask about the marching band are you a part of it.
-- I doubt but my kid loves to be in front of it whenever they marched down the street we have a march to the match every game every home game.
We need at this area called pioneer square in Seattle.
-- -- -- for -- march with the band to the stadium.
And -- we have really turn out every time and a lot of people come up in the bars before the game and join us that's a lot of by the -- -- at the level of fan involvement.
In Seattle is pretty unprecedented and in -- even sports it's it's it's really incredible to see.
Natalie and our fans -- about the general manager but we have fans can nominate themselves to a -- -- And actually talk to the managers about what they want to happen within the team in the stadium and how that.
And how things happen -- incredible you know you may be onto something maybe some other Major League gives sports.
Teams will join you know in some of his stuff.
Of course I know that that I -- -- They're -- -- -- restrictive practices they don't they don't like the market that my gap.
I don't I don't get it because it just makes sense it -- that they into the team.
You know it and in Seattle we have a lean years -- we have a bad year next year.
Our -- anatomy course -- that they're not gonna stop buying tickets and paying us they're gonna stick around.
And it just means more money and everybody's pocket when they do it this way -- you really do.
-- -- for the fans so they did you know they make it a part of it and bid or higher the general manager that you just fire more hire another guy -- we get somebody like.
So you know they just get like a veto power it's a really good guy really ready to keep the fans with you wouldn't lean times and then and -- -- some super supportive.
