you guys were saying we should go bigger than 2 sections, so there ;)

Still had to use a third group to get stadium access for setup

Hey guys, I wanted to look up some of the 2012 displays I missed. I looked through all the photos under ECS Tifo 2012, but only saw a few. Can someone fill in the other 4 (pictures appreciated)? Thanks.

Decades of Dominance was a 2011 display. Removing that one from your list, here's the five you're missing:

"Where's the Heart" - San Jose away
Boxer - USOC Final
Let Our Voices Lift You - CCL quarterfinal
Two Poles - RSL playoff home, couldn't find a good full section picture :(
Flags - San Jose home

It's a bit of a stretch to call the flags at San Jose home a display. I have seen our section like that in multiple matches.

Almost the same about the two-poles in the playoffs, even if the density was a bit higher than we've ever had.

I know that it was planned/organized, but I think the end result is more relevant than what went on before that. To me what it looks like is what a proper supporters section should look like. It's like, you post that photo in the midst of photos of choreos, and people will ask why you included just a shot of the section.

I kinda agree. Yes, it was technically a display, but when I saw the pictures afterwards I mostly though, "Cool, we should look like that every match!"

Same thing with the 2-poles.

By BFF he means "Big Fucking Flag". And no...the FO does not set limits on our tifo. There is a large disconnect between the FO and StaffPro which does in stadium security. They often make shit up on the fly in the section. It rarely affects anything as ECS Security does a great job of keeping them off of us.
