These are just some of the problems fans had with the change in plans:
- An E-mail announcing this policy and hyping Henry was sent out the morning after the Fire lost 5-1 at home to Monarcas Morelia. Many fans were angry to see the team promoting another team's star while it seemed as if the Fire weren't going to get any help themselves.
- Season ticket holders were further enraged because an option was being taken away.
- Many questioned blocking the August 8th game with Henry but not the September 4th game with Landon Donovan. I think too that Donovan is bigger draw for more people than Henry after the World Cup.
