    Welp, the Iron Front flag mess is blowing up again.

    Emerald City Supporters walked out at halftime after members were thrown out for flying an IF flag.

    Also, fans got thrown out in Minnesota for flying IF flags.

    Soccer organizations all over the world: We will not tolerate racism! Our fans must support players of all races and religions!

    Fans: fly unity flags to support players

    Soccer orgs: Not like that!


    Any mention that fans in other countries regularly display Fascist symbols? Hell, some clubs were founded by Fascists and still wave banners and chant Fascist slogans. But that's perfectly acceptable.

    I hope this blows up right in the face of MLS and especially the trans.

    Im not exactly sure how the Iron Front imagery is a "unity" flag? I do think this is a dumb hill to die on for MLS.

    According to the tweet, the symbols are there "to support inclusion of our players from all over the world."

    I understand the symbol myself but it's a symbol from a German paramilitary organization...not sure how any Paramilitary group could be considered "inclusive"

    I stand with my fellow supporters in fighting this terrible language but I also question the symbol choice in some ways...

    There seems to be some debate on that:
    However, the Red Loons, a politically left-leaning supporters group, estimated 10 to 15 fans were escorted out of the stadium for this reason and said others walked out with them. A Red Loons spokesperson said “everyone was respectful to Allianz staff throughout.”

    No offense, I’m not exactly believing MNUFC’s official take considering they have the harshest policy against the IF flag (not even allowing clothing with the image).

    It’s important to remember that a lot of this started because NYCFC had far-right, fascist skinhead supporters groups causing trouble and NYCFC and the league refuse to do anything about it.

    No, I'm stating a fact...one person got thrown out for wearing a home made iron front snuggie. I'm not claiming they were the only person...I'm stating that one person took "personal clothing" is ok to an extreme and got kicked out for it when she refused to remove it. I've heard others gettig kicked out after refusing to remove shirts, which seems counter to what MNUFC stated to WW leadership earlier in the week...

    One entity is saying one person, another is saying 10-15. It seems the facts are up for debate.

    You're not listening to me...yes there is debate on how many people were kicked out. I'm talking specifically about ONE person, I'm not ignoring the other 10-15 people, just focusing my comments on one person.

    Ok, understood. You’re post was a little confusing to me.

    There’s an undercurrent in all of this that’s not being talked about: the players support of the fans in all of this.

    The MLSPA has already come out against the policy:


    But the biggest thing is that the CBA is up at the end of the year and the players could potentially strike. What’s the biggest thing any work action needs? Public support, in this case from the fans.

    Well...

    Well...
    that is very true...Soccer is different than other sports in america. This angle is part of what has made soccer special to me.
