District Ultras, La Norte, Screaming Eagles @ DC United - Houston 11/18/2012

Hopefully BBBulldog doesn't mind me copying his Big Soccer post here
4300 sheets, 24 sections, 3 SGs, thousands of quickly and well-trained reg fans helping out.

I will say that seeing it on tv made me go wow a little bit. The cards and the other end with the flags actually looked good.

I'm pretty sure it is the bird netting used for ponds.

the black and red cards looked great, not going to lie...

things like this make me wish we'd go back to the shades of green and blue we really should be using, as in the USL days *sigh*

Of course it looks good! Unfortunately, we can't speak about the specifics of construction (proprietary tifo technology) -- I can say that the Large Haldron Collidor was involved.

Anyway, the bottom two black and red sections below the lettering (blank space to "YOU CA") are District Ultras and La Norte, who designed, organized, and constucted it. The three far right 'black-red-black' sections below the lettering ("WE ARE UNITED" plus blank space) are The Screaming Eagles. SE bankrolled it and helped with construction too. They don't usually do tifo, but did awesome and we plan to include them in our bigger stuff next season. Everyone else you see participating are regular and likely play-offs only fans, to whom tifo is totally foreign. Shows that with some organization, any size SG can pull off big shit. 4200-4400 people participating. RFK's biggest display to date.

I say netting with PVC in between the words(probably painted) to give support and stretched over the distance. Kinda like the boys from seattle display.

Did we really do that much more tifo than the other SGs, or was the producer a Seattle guy?

Nice compilation though, great to see a few displays I'd missed.

(And, I hate to admit it, but props to 1906 for stepping up their game this season, they had some fun overheads)

I'm guessing that most of the photos in that video were probably pulled off the BS supporters/tifo thread. But yeah, safe to say that us, DC, SJ, PDX, and CHI did the lion's share.

A lot of choreos were definitely missing from the video, but I do think ECS would stand out even if it had everything. But yeah, I can readily think of stuff from SJ, PDX,and NY that wasn't there, and I'm sure there's much more.

And yes, that was posted from a youtube account that has posted a lot of Sounders and ECS stuff on youtube.

He's one of the psychotics that posts on the SoundersFC.com front page blog thing all the time, so yeah, Seattle guy.
