    From HSH_Crew in Supporters Section:
    "Well we just got a call from the front office and this is straight from McCullers himself anyone caught throwing anything including streamers at any point during the game will be ejected from the stadium. As well as anyone who is caught throwing a smoke bomb will not only be ejected but placed under arrested hurray for our glorious front office.

    So no need to bring your streamers to this game unless you feel like listening to the game from outside!!"

    gone from loving the uniqueness of streamers, to hating everything about them in the span of a few weeks

    Thank you Ralston and the rest of the New England wankers. I hope someone in Toronto takes his head off with a bowling ball.

    We'll still get in trouble for it but what the hell.

    Guess their attendance is so great they can afford to lose another 2,000 fans.

    I have just heard another update: Chanting is also banned and anyone caught standing up from here on in will be instantly deported to Canada.

    I think it was probably the three smoke bombs that landed on the pitch Saturday night is what brought all of this delightful hurling of projectiles to a close.

    Now, can we think of something that isn't stolen from TFC fans to try?

    I don't wanna punish the team, so to speak, but how about for this one game, everyone in Nordec silently walks in, stand sfor the anthem, sits the whole game and politely golf claps when the team scores. Nothing else. Nada.

    Hey now...

    Man - this seems like quite the blanketed rush to judgement by the FO.

    sucks, but can't say i'm suprised.

    they said no streamers that disrupt play (i took that as including cornerkicks- so basically after goals or at kickoff or something), but the streamers still came out on corners.

    it was clear smokebombs were out, but yet several were thrown the last game. thats probably what did it. it seems like they tried to have some leeway but those smokebombs finally did it. i dunno if its my 2 semesters of tort law classes but i can understand why a business would be worried and overreact to that.

    i mean bottles were thrown, beer was thrown, (bananas- HA), and smokebombs were thrown- and it didn't stop. it was only a matter of time before they finally had to say "fine, you can't listen then you can't throw anything."

    direct your anger to your fellow supporters that threw smokebombs and non-streamers and not at the front office. it was the irresponsible fans that brought this.

    although, something makes me think that maybe even without these things the ban would have happened eventually. all this probably just made things happen a little quicker.

    Could someone get McCullers to clarify whether throwing streamers in the stands is still acceptable or not? If the new policy is no throwing of anything at anytime, it's quite a departure from the previous no throwing stuff onto the pitch policy.

    Just another example of the inconsistency of the Crew's front office. They've been known to talk out of both sides of their mouths in their past.

    Stuff like this has happened before...this was one of my old favorite songs...

    I assume CSC security will quickly wisk away all 10 year olds who throw paper airplanes from the upper deck as well.

    That's what I'm saying. We just sit down the whole time. Don't cheer at all.

    If it was really up to me and if I could really deal with missing a game. I would have the whole section go support the Clippers or something on that day. See how well they get on without us, place would be a ********ing tombstone.

    As i understand inter-section streaming(If that is a phrase) is still permitted they just dont want it on the field at all. The reason I believe this is becuase the individual i spoke to said that if streamers continue to be thrown on the field they will start searching bags and confiscating streamers and we wont be allowed to have them in the stadium at all. So if I dont see why they would still let us bring them in if we cant throw them between our sections.

    Im going to meet with a couple of them for a beer and get all the details and have this question clarified. Ill let you guys know as soon as I find out

    I could see why some would not go or sit quietly if it was just some random game, but it’s Chicago and it’s important in the standings. You show up for a game like this for the team on the field, not the FO.

    I'm flying in from Boston and there's about a 0% chance I'm going to a clippers game or sitting quietly. F CHICAGO.

    They need to make something very visible in the form of an announcement. Expecting a few group leaders and message boards to get the word out 100% is assinine. There will be people who bring things on Saturday who haven't heard, and if they manage to throw something or do whatever before a fellow fan can intervene, they're going to get bum rushed by security worse then ever w/o knowing of this policy change.

    I understand what you're saying. But fcuk, do we need Zak to come here and tell us he told us this would happen, because he sure as shit did?


    It's all a moot point now, but it struck me that the nordeck is right next to the stage, no reason dropping, not throwing, flares/smoke bombs, in a co-ordinated effort with the FO, right next to the section on the stage would be a good compromise. No fire hazard, no people around to get injured, etc., etc. But instead of trying to continue to work with Nordeck they move to squash it.

    Repeat after me:

    This is not the end of the world. They are not asking us to sit down and golf clap. Everything is ok.

    You should ask the guys in La Turbino (sp?) where you can get a Don Garber pinata made. Then you should beat the crap out of it on camera for FSC and the nation to see. If I were in Ohio I'd fund that project 100%.

    I can just see the great publicity we will get when FSC gets Crew fans being led out of our sections in handcuffs that will really help the Crews PR... I CANT WAIT
