Luke Rodgers created an unexpected glimmer of hope for the New York Red Bulls in the 2011 MLS season. The English journeyman was a force to be reckoned with in the MLS and his playing on the pitch has won over thousands of fans. He is immensely entertaining to watch and is the perfect compliment to legend Thierry Henry. Only with Luke Rodgers do we feel we can win any Championship.
As a result of his play and off the pitch interaction with fans Luke Rodgers has added to the excitement of Harrison, New Jersey, which is an area that is in desperate need for rejuvenation. The success of the local rebuilding projects are tied in directly to the Red Bulls being successful and without Luke Rodgers we fear they will not have the added talent to do so. This will add to a decline in fan interest therefore, a loss of millions of dollars in revenue not for just the club but for an area that is much in need of cash flow.
Luke Rodgers is a shinning example of an individual that has come to the USA during his previous visa period and produced phenomenal results. He paid taxes on his wages, he gave back by becoming involved in local charity programs for underprivileged and ill children, ( http://www.starlight.org/mls ) and he never had any issue with the law.
