@SCTazz I'm using photoshop to make these


Seriously, what is with all the latin? Between WSA, Sounder at heart, and now this (and I'm probably missing some), I think the novelty is wearing off.

@ Obi-fun, how many scarves did you end getting total and how much per scarf?

@ Eco, the Latin thing is because we are limited in the way we can use the groups name since it has Sounders in it. If we can find a company that will let us use Sounders then we will... Ruffneck will not.

I get that you can't use the word Sounders, but none of the Latin text has Sounders in it either. Besides, why always Latin. Why not Portuguese. Or pig-Latin? ight-Fay ounders-Say!

Maybe you can find another thread to troll... OR you could try and help by coming up with something usful in english. Something that flows and doesn't sound stupid... The latin is just an idea, it is not final...

You can take it as trolling or feedback, your choice. I think that forcing in a latin phrase that sort-of-means what you are trying to say is weird, and I thought it was weird for the other groups scarves as well. It does have the benefit of getting people to ask you what it means, and then you can start a conversation about your sub-group.

I'll try to be more productive.

A reference to the east coast/west coast dynamic maybe:
"West coast team, east coast attitude"
"Our distance does not diminish our passion."
"Left coast bias"

A reference to I-95 would tie together Maine -> Florida
or something about the original 13 colonies

I'm inclined to agree about the Latin, it seems forced.

Any consideration been given to "Coast to Coast" or making a banner out of whatever the final phrase is?

I know this is super old, and not sure if you got scarves. But did you look into Global Scarves? We, at the Heartland Horde went through them, great quality, minimum order of 50. Roughly $8.50 per scarf. They are based out of England. If someone sees this, can give you the Global Scarves America Rep's email, he's actually a Sounder supporter.

Here are some images of our HH scarf from the factory in Leeds, England.
