    I think the DC game shows that general Columbus fans:

    A) have voices
    B) are willing to use them
    C) if given the proper direction.

    The NE has been sounding great. What ever happened - you guys have been getting it together as of late. It seems that once you guys got together, the team started playing better. Now - you need to infect the rest of the stadium. Imagine everybody who yelled "Lets" "Go" "Crew" yelling "Oh when the crew..."

    What ever strides you have made with Management - keep them up.

    In the long run, it will be key to get the voice in the sky "Mr Announcer Dude" to give a little direction to the crowd in combination with the NE. At least for several games. Then the crowd will feel . . . authorized to chant/yell.

    Imagine if the words - "oh when the crew" are on the jumbotron and Mr. Vox in the sky is leading the chant. (just for the first couple of games).

    The key is to have a trigger - music in the backgroud - it will most likely have to come from yes the scoreboard. The first couple of bars from the song. This audible cue/trigger will let the rest of the stadium know when to chant and what to chant. For the first couple of times, the Announcer might have to lead the chant - but after several games - the announcer should stop leading and just let the music be the triger - the NE can then take over the "caller" possition and thus leading the chant. The rest of the stadium is alerted to the chant by the intro music - while the NE is alerted to the fact that it needs to call the chant by the music.

    SYNERGY!!!!

    Anyway just a long winded idea that just might work! Proof is in the "Lets" "Go" "Crew" pudding.

    Exactly. I'm still in shock. I was in 137 for the first game. It's amazing to see how far it's come, and equally amazing to hear people ask about expanding the section.

    I was walking along the upper south concourse last night, right under the giant videoboard and could hear every word.

    There was a game late last year when songs/chants were written out and given away at least through the tent entrance. I thought that was a great idea - at least those who may not be regulars could understand and/or join in if they felt like it.

    Just like those 1980's scoreboards, one side says and the other side says
    <----WE ARE.....................MASSIVE---->

    Wow, that threw me for a loop. It's been forever since Dustin has been around. He and his wife had a kid and lost interest (like so many others) in the Crew during the GA years.

    Dustin and Suazanne I miss ya, come to the Nordecke. It's fun again I tell ya.

    He was the driving force behind the Columbus flag. That flag has been around for a long time. I remember talking about it when we would watch Crew games on "Central Ohio Sport TV!" at Arlington Cafe.

    I thought this would be a thread about the Revolution coming down with Swine Flu.
