One would guess that embracing your hometown team might be a positive thing. But when the hometown team is called “rowdies”, there’s just not too many avenues where you could take this ‘passion’ for a mediocre D2 soccer team. Maybe form a supporters group, and network with the local fans to gather up and plan all sorts of activities with the support of the team in mind like: come up or practice different chants/clapping patterns to perform during matches, make meaningful TIFOS to commemorate/celebrate specific events, host/organize watch parties for when the hometown team is playing away, etc.
But it’s ok, cause a mentality is a state of mind–it’s your mental capacity. Your neanderthal mode and way of thinking is antiquated and out of place. And the few gents from across the pond that walk around the stadium grasping to their hooligan heydays staring down people as they walk by, need to stop this nonsense; we’re in America, that type of passion is nonexistent here and will never be.
That “rowdie” mentality seems to instigate negative vibes towards anybody around you that’s not wearing green and yellow, a call for a reassessment throughout your whole supporter organization is needed. Because the fact that your minions are blatantly moseying around the stadium stomping and stealing flags, blasting opposing team’s female supporters profanities and hateful jargon just for being there…I just hope that the power’s that be take more of a proactive approach on this matter; Instead of the usual instigation via electronic media, that seems to take place every time and on every “rowdie” cyber outlet prior to our encounters.
I would like to express my hapiness towards our newest NASL brothers in San Antonio in obtaining their first Home win of the season (Sat 5/5) in spectacular fashion, I cannot find any info on the team they toasted–they’re not that important anyways–regardless, it was another good showing from their supporters, 9000+ showed up for this one (nevermind that it was Cinco de Mayo, and that the population in Texas is, well, largely Mexican) kudos to all of you!
Up next for the Strikers is a little rivalry on the road again: in Puerto Rico! After that thrilling come-from-behind point in Carolina, we face off for a second time in less then a month against our beloved Enchanted Enana Faña and see if we can steal a point or three from those Islanders.
Remember official watch party (Sat 5/12) at Duffy’s in Ft Lauderdale free drink with Striker gear on, or log on Strikers.com and follow the links to the live streaming link from ustream.com.
And always: VAMOSTRIKERS!
