I've sat near the Supporters Sections at Red Bull games. yeah they curse out the other team but they also sing songs and do chants that support their team. For every chant that puts down the other team, they do at least 3 or more chants that support the Red Bulls.
I go to about 3-5 Yankees games a year as well. The crowd there is fine and don't really have issues there. There are certain pockets (mostly in the bleachers) that go on and on forever about how much the Red Sox sucks, but the whole stadium doesn't do chants all game about it.
Fair enough, but yeah, there's a lot more vile stuff we say in the RB supporters sections that some people in this thread "would have to explain to their friends":
"Dig a hole and fvckin' bury him!" (when a player goes down/dives)
"Can you hear (opposing team) sing? I don't hear a fvckin' thing!"
"Fuuuuuck DC Uniiiiiiiited!" (every 5 minutes during the playoff run haha; they got the whole arena to do it)
"DC United went to Rome to see the pope, and this is what he said: fvck OFF! Whoooo the fvck's DC Uniiiiited? etc."
And countless others. But you ask many people around the arena, and they see the supporters atmosphere as the draw. People who aren't into soccer go to the RB games and first thing they rave about is the supporters and the atmosphere and how much fun it was.
I know it's apples to oranges, but just saying: you need some dumb, immature, and yes, sometimes offensive atmosphere at the games.
I'm just amazed that management hasn't banned the vuvuzelas from the arena.
Oh that's definitely happening next season. I think they know there'll be a sh!tstorm if they get rid of that this season, but I can't see that vuvuzela being around next season.
