I know I am slightly biased but can the TA do ANYTHING new besides waving checkered flags, a little bit of smoke, and that sun burst?
Evidence:
March:
SSFC-PFC

April:
Kitsap vs. PFC

PFC-Rochester
Image
PFC-St Louis

May:
PFC-puntarenas (friendly)

Same shit over and over and over. It is disappointing frankly.

Let's not forget their very wonderful display in the Open Cup last July. Timber Jim cutting down the space needle...really? but they don't get any help from their FO for things like that. :roll:

Don't forget the sign that they made for Taka (I think was his name). The one where they used babelfish to translate the Japanese. Welcome Mr shithead. :lol: and of course they have the dude dressed up like the green sperm. :shock:

They throw streamers as well!

For their numbers, they are not very creative.

I'm just going to say this now, but from a flag-waiving side, good on them for keeping color up.

... HOWEVER, like every song, there comes a point where you get sick of it, and everyone else gets sick of it.

Yeah. They need to find something else to do than to wave picnic blankets and "WOO" during the breaks in the National Anthem.

Maybe they could get one of their two shirt sponsors to pay for a new overhead. This begs the question of which side they'll show on their big MLS jersey, the front with Solar thing or the back with Cricket on the butt.

There's nothing wrong with bringing the same flags to every game. We do that as well.

But I agree with Ultra that for their numbers they are not very creative.

The Timber Jim chainsawing the Space Needle was a good creative idea, but the implementation was lacking as the size was so small. Nice for them that they got the FO to help them with the mechanism for putting it up, though.

There were a couple other displays last season, but all in small scale and lacking in creativity / originality.

I for some reason watched the Scum on TV last night get beat at home by Crystal Palace Baltimore 1-0 Awesome evening last night.
They also butcherd at least 5 of our chants.

And we still see the pattern:
Small amount of Smoke?Check
Checkered flags?Check
Boring sunburst overhead?Check
Anything new? Nope

Small amount of Smoke? know the whole story...and i don't care to explain
Checkered flags? we are nascar fans too.
Boring sunburst overhead? it's called tradition, been in the north end since 2004
Anything new? lolz, go ask your ecs leaders, they'll give you a rational answer.
