in the red it says EARTHQUAKES
looks like crap there...oh well
we already have a California-inspired flag as well as an over the top banner that reads "C__IFORNI_ Better Without LA"
There's no need to add to or alter the San José flag.
Just the way it is would be an awesome addition to the variety of flags already being waved, much like how the Chicago and D.C. flags are waved in the stands of those respective stadiums.
GO SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES!!!
no no no i think its killer, but on my computer it was all blurry thats why i put that
the california flag has more of an, "this is our state" feel, still cool
Where would the 1906 Ultras (or anyone else) even be able to obtain the San José flag?
GO SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES!!!
I would imagine SJ City Hall would be a good place to start.
Do they actually sell them there?
GO SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES!!!
i remember i visited City Hall a year and a half ago Re: the SJ city flags.
they had mentioned a place named "Pacific Flags" or soemthing of the sort as the ony place to buy such flags.
In addition to some of the mentioned suggestions, I'd like to see a California flag or two waved around in there
Also - can someone fill me in on exactly what the hooded+masked ninja/thug guy is in the posters you guys always put up??? I've always wondered but never asked.
We have one CA flag, in there somewhere. Depends of if anybody picks it up, and decides to wave it.
As for as the mask guy...It's our adopted logo, aptly named Ultras Joe. It's a iconic logo used by Ultras groups all over the world.

"Anti-Antifa (USA) is a direct response to the consistently hostile activities of groups such as the ADL, Southern Poverty Law Center, Anti-Racist Action, SHARP and the One Peoples Project.
We are an autonomous network of anti-Marxist/Communist, Globalist, Zionist, and Feminist working together to monitor, expose and undermine the hypocritical tactics of any individual or organization that hides behind the mask of Anti-Racism or Civil Rights to push their corrupt agendas.
We are opposed to any such group or individual that seeks the elimination of freedom speech or the freedom of assembly for those with opposing view points and actively seeks to suppress them through the use of violence, harassment or the use of political power and Law Enforcement."
so uh.. that's what that guy in the logo is about eh ?
thats another thing about ultras groups that im glad US groups havent brought to the games: the political aspect.
i remember hearing that there are groups who have a political bias. maybe some groups will be FAR to the right, and some FAR to the left. In europe, and as in most of the world, they talk politics amongst family and friends. not so much in the US. because the USA has an overall "i dont care" mentality about most political topics, it doesnt show up in games.
totally with you, although 'ultra' is, to me and i suspect many other europeans, an EXTREMELY politically loaded word to begin with.
on another note, what was up with the clear lines of yellowjacket security folks surrounding 109 ??? has it always been like that at the games this season ?
does anyone find it a bit oppressive ?? are they asking people not to swear still in songs etc. ?
if anything, it seems to me that the security is there to make sure we dont do anything really stupid. by and large, they seems like a nice group, and havent really had to crack down on the group. i havent noticed any real restrictions.
Tony, I can assure you that there's no political load amongst our members. We all have our own personal political orientation, but we don't bring any of that to the games.
Yellow jackets don't feel well, if they don't start some stupid shit. Lately, we had a guy grabbed by one of those clowns, because he was .....waving a flag. In the supporter section. Most of them have no idea what they are doing, and in most cases, they provoke and instigate. Shit, some of them picked on Alioto or other Quakes FO people, not knowing who they were.
A Wednesday night game against the crew, with no visiting fans present, should be a very calm, peaceful game in the stands. Well, until the yellow jackets decide to flex their muscles. Screw it. They are not even worth talking about.
really glad to hear that they are being reasonable and letting you do what you feel. keep up the good work, ultras, casbah and security then
no worries man, i didn't think that about the sj ultras at all... just commenting on some of the imagery that was posted in the thread and some of the connotations of the word ultra.
hm a differing view from the one above.. the SECURITY gave alioto et al a hard time ? that is a bit ridiculous, but i'm not really surprised i guess.. all i think of when i think of them is the LESS TALKIN MORE WALKIN lady at the exit to the street near section 101.
hopefully nobody got hassled last night, like i said, i was very surprised to see those lines of security.. it looked like in england when the stewards form a wall around the away fans (just as much for their protection as ensuring they don't get out of hand obviously).. but in this case they're the home fans !!
One of 'em pulled me aside (front of the Casbah) and gave me a "warning", informing me that I apparently was guilty of "harassing a couple". Nobody around me knew what the hell the guy was talking about, and in fact told me later that whatever event he was alluding to occurred around halftime - when I was elsewhere enjoying a Lagunitas or two in the relax-with-a-beer area. So I got a pseudo-yellow card from a yellow jacket. Seems they can be not only a bit annoying, but downright delusional. Kind of like a first-base ump ruining a perfect game.
