  1. So because they give up in the stadia that you visit we should give up here? Do you prefer that supporters observe a period of silence before supporting again? When our team goes down that is the very ******* moment to double the effort. They need our boost then. Not after a period of feeling shame and abandonment. UnnamedTrialist, you are advocating the most unproductive type of support. Be silent yourself if you can't handle adversity. But don't tell me we can't push our team on when they falter.
  2. We know who he is. Long-ish time Voyageur by the look of his scarf which was not the standard one. But we know his name and haunts. He took a smoke bomb that was dropped by someone else and tossed it on the pitch. He then pointed at two uninvolved people as if they had done it. He will be dealt with.
  3. You may want to reread your past posts in this thread. There are numerous 'attacks'. And I agree with your first sentence entirely. So why don't you stop trying to alienate anyone who disagrees with you? Or maybe just try to be polite. This discussion is best had in person. You should have no trouble finding us. We are not looking for trouble. We just want to do our thing.
  4. I don't understand your reference here. As you saying that it is ok for you to hate and disparage people who think differently from you, so long as you are not alone in doing it? We may not be able to agree on approaches to support but we can remain civil. Your unsolicited attacks are unnecessarily antagonistic.
  5. 114 is still V's at Canada games. We are all V's for Canada. Take your irrational and illogical hate somewhere else Califax.
  6. I am definitely up for a massive banner/tifo. I would love to help organize it. Local Toronto footy fans have a lot of free weekends up until May 10 and then it will probably be pretty tight for free weekends as TFC will have a flood of home matches. I suggest we come up with an idea and try to get it done before then. I'll be buying 4-6 bolts of banner cloth in February-ish for the TFC home opener. Perhaps we can put the two orders together to save some cash? The luxury boxes under the east side upper deck could pose a problem. They are not sold as obstructed viewing. Additionally, I doubt any of us will have seats in the upper deck. We would have to get permission for this or it could go to **** just trying to get up there to unfurl it, let alone obstructing the suits. Knowing how hard it is to communicate with organizers on something like this, it might just be better to use the south end again. On the future upside TFC is building in rigging for the new roof that is coming for 2016 so we should be able to do some awesome stuff then and it will be much easier. Not in time for this though. Anyway, this is a great chance to get something special done. Let's do it.
  7. Back to planning: I will try to be there early to make sure we have flag poles. Please let me know by 4ish Tuesday if you need some or if there is anything in storage at BMO you want brought out. Do we have any railing banners for this? I can bring out the 'Born and Raised' with the Canadian flag running through the letters if we don't have many. (Obviously I won't hang the TFC and SG114 parts of it.). We had it up at the U20WWC matches.
  8. I forgot zip ties. Please bring some if you have them.
  9. Great pics! Too bad the flag waver is so ugly...
  10. That was Eli's first time on the stand for a Canada game. He's still trying to figure out what chants we use. Everyone should feel free to pipe up and start some to help him out.
  11. I put the 6-7 poles that we snuck in under the 112 capo stand. I'll take them out pre game and put them under the seats in the first row of 113 on Friday. If we need more let me know. There are a couple of banners in storage that we need to get out on Friday so I can always grab more poles. They were literally turning away fans with smaller flag poles on the way in so I thought we were screwed. I figured I'd sneak some out of storage and have them confiscated after their first use. As it turned out security actually kept an eye on my flag to keep people away from it when I went to get beers. Who can understand this process? It makes zero sense.
  12. CORRECTION: we have flag poles!!! And tape and zips, get in here!
  13. No flags allowed. They are turning people away with small poles.
  14. Just heard from Bree. She is going to text me when she gets to BMO and has the key to the lock up. I'll post here later when poles are 100% confirmed, but it's looking good. I'll grab about 15. Let me know if you think we need more.
  15. I plan on being in the stadium at 7, if not earlier. Kick off is at 8, so that should leave enough time to get ready.
  16. I'm going to try to dig out the 'Born and Raised' banner. It has Canadian flags painted within the letters and is about 7ft tall and 35 ft long. All depends on Bree opening that storage door. We should have PVC poles for everyone if we can get in. Storage at BMO is nice, but I wish we controlled access.
  17. One other thing, security company changed this year so if they give you any grief ask for a supervisor. They usually won't get one and let you in anyway. I find the lack of direction on what is allowed in this year to be very annoying.
  18. 1. Take to the gate on the south side. There are 2 gates there. Go to the one on the left. That is the supporters gate where they usually check bags of banners and flags. There has never been a problem with banners and flags before at Canada games. This is assuming nothing wonky is going on. The CSA twitter feed is ignoring all of my requests for confirmation on what is allowed.
  19. Sorry no. Bree is reliable but a terrible communicator. I would be prepared for this to go either way. I'll email her again but don't expect to hear from her until Tuesday. She said she would help get the flag poles, so I'm not worried about that part. The question remains as to whether the CSA/FIFA will let us use them. I've reached out to the CSA as well but no response. Maybe someone with better connections could try them?
  20. Spoke to Bree at TFC FO. She is going to look into whether we can use flag poles and if we can I will meet up with her pre-match to get a dozen or so.
  21. There are maybe 30 PVC flag poles in storage at BMO, somewhere under section 117(ish). If we are allowed to use poles I will try to arrange to get some brought out. It's kind of hit or miss getting someone with a key but I will try. It depends on who is running the show that day. I have a 9 by 5 Canadian flag that I will be bringing to both Canada games.
  22. Only 113 and 112 available in the members only link. Did the rest of the South End sell out already? Apologies if I am just blind and missed something.
  23. They should offer a deal where you get into the practice for free if you buy the new kit at the door. I doubt I'll pay $10 to see a practice, but if I could get a kit at the practice I would likely go. This probably dosen't make much sense but it would be a good promo for them.
  24. This is a great idea. Also, road trips to Ottawa would be quite amazing. I could imagine some decent numbers making it down there, even for a mid-week game. If they could find a way to put it on a weekend during a league bye-week we could see a close to a thousand or more I bet. I like.
