because after the rousing success of USA-Paname here a couple years ago, USSOCCER asked if AO/Seattle/ECS folks could teach others how to support. they did not take it so well.

IMO a better question worth asking/answering is why do people in Seattle hate AO?

Because the National does nothing to curb the rampant sexual harassment and misogyny that plagues their events, and they pay their leadership salaries. That's why I don't AO.

I just don't like the name. It's too County Western.

racist comments/behavior, missogynyst comments/bahavior, dude bros, poor leadership, poor execution, poor message, poor support.

AO is only as united as its chapters. They may have the same names but each chapter is different and does not represent another. National leadership gets a lot of cash despite most work coming from chapters. Does little in the way of managing or supporting chapters. I dont personally like for profit supporter groups. Counter to the cause.

Really? Nobody gave "I believe" as their answer? I'm strangely disappointed.

Not that the other stuff isn't more than enough reason.
