    Was having this discussion with RoleModel over lunch and agree with most of his list. One point I would make: for having the 2nd smallest market, I feel like Crew having a supporters group(s) on the top half (especially in away trips and TIFO) is pretty damn impressive.

    I just want to post here so Skeleton Crew isn't the only one being told to get lost by Chelsey.

    4-5 years ago people talked about Toronto the way people talk about Seattle and Portland nowadays. Seattle has found some success, but Portland has not. I wonder how it will go if Portland goes years struggling (although I think it will be impossible to struggle as bad as TFC has). If they don't win some things, they could be ranked 13th 4-5 years from now.

    DC - 8th in population, 3rd in the rankings. Just imagine what they would do with a stadium built after Pope John XXIII's excommunication of Fidel Castro (1962), assassination of JFK (1963), Woodstock (1969), the Iranian hostage crisis (1979-81), the fall of the USSR (1991), and so on and so forth.

    With a new stadium, they'd easily be the class of the league.

    ...and the girl who has zero commitment to anything crew still whines about me.

    I am amused about how you somehow think you are still relevant.

    I can honestly say that I had nothing to do with it (finally stepped down from my role a couple of years ago), but am very much looking forward to participating in this march. It means a lot to those of us from Boston.

    I feel that our supporter section is still good but it feels like its on the decline when others are going to opposite way. I'm going to hate to see what it looks like in 5 years.

    Originality? This is from Timbers Army website. Wouldn't exactly call it original.

    Whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-ohh!
    Whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-ohh!
    Keep it up, Rose City!
    Don’t let up, no pity!
    Keep it up, Rose City!
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-ohh!


    Or

    YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

    At the 80th minute
    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
    So please don’t take my sunshine away

    OR
    Bella Ciao
    ” Our lyrics are adapted from Chumbawamba’s version of the song

    OR

    CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE

    At the 85th minute
    Wise men say – Only fools rush in
    But I can’t help falling in love with you
    Take my hand – Take my whole life too
    ‘Cause I can’t help falling in love with you

    OR

    MENTAL AND GREEN

    Tune: “You are my Sunshine”
    We are the Portland – The Portland Timbers
    We are mental – And we are green
    We are the greatest – Football supporters
    That the world has ever seen.

    Don't get me wrong, they are loud and the way that stadium is built really makes it sound good. But they are far from original. My 2cents
