    Well done once again, 1906 Ultras!

    I know that thousands of person-hours went into the tifo over many days. And it is appreciated.

    Right after the anthem -- with the hundreds of individually-hand-blown balloons wafting over the stadium, the confetti of thousands of newspapers blowing over the field and the blue smoke still in the air -- Quakes president Dave Kaval walked over to owner Lew Wolff's on-field seat and loudly and proudly exclaimed, "did you see the Ultras?!"

    I took that as a compliment. :)

    Interesting article from Soccer America:

    Garber aims to end obscene chants
    Sporting News
    In an interview with Brian Straus, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said that obscene chanting must stop.
    "... As I attended the game on Wednesday at Red Bull Arena," Garber said. "While the crowd wasn’t what we would have liked it to have been (for an afternoon match that was marketed heavily to youth and families), the (“You Suck A**hole”) chants (popular at stadiums around the league when the opposing goalkeeper takes a goal kick) were far louder than they would be during a Saturday night at a sold-out match.

    "That is just infuriating to me. It’s just so uncreative and ridiculous, and we need to stop it. Our broadcast partners don’t like it. When vulgarity is going over the air, it’s an issue with the FCC and we’ve got to stop it. (New England Revolution president)Brian Bilello stopped it in New England, and I really appreciated what the Midnight Riders did. They weren’t happy about it, but I looked to that as I sat with Sunil Gulati at the (Red Bulls) game and I said, 'How’d you stop it in New England?'

    "He said, 'We sat down with them and said, "You’ve just got to stop."' They need to stop it in New York, and they need to stop it in a handful of other markets. And if they don’t stop it, we’re going to have to find a way to eradicate it from our game. We can’t have young kids in stadiums listening to vulgarity. No other league would tolerate it. No other public event would have it and we can’t tolerate it in Major League Soccer."

    The Ultras don't do YSA chants. As for profanity, more generally, Don Garber should get his own house in order. MLS employees -- players and coaches -- use profanity every game.

    Here's an opposing view on Garber's rant: http://www.eightysixforever.com/201...-asshole-and-mls-threatening-its-golden-goose

    There is a hardcore group of fans now, which has become a phenomenon of US soccer, and at the Quakes they are called the 1906 Ultras. They are a group of maybe 300 fans who would fit in anywhere around the world as football fans: they sing, they chant, they are loyal and they all wear the scarves. I went to an away game with them, down in Los Angeles last month, and they take it very, very seriously. It’s more like the European concept of the Ultra groups, as opposed to the type of fan we know in Britain.
    So they bring the energy to the stadium and that creates the atmosphere. The rest of the crowd, because they are trained in American sports, wait for something to happen so they can respond to it. There is less booing and chanting, although it has become more sophisticated in recent years, where the crowd gets pretty angry when the refereeing decisions go the wrong way. And they could get really nasty when David Beckham came to town as well.
