The Free Beer Movement has a good analysis of overexcited fans going to far. Pong is by no means the only fan who has crossed a line, but it's a shame to see so much defense of his actions by may Portland fans. It is important to keep a distinction between banter and hate. I love our friendly rivalry with Portland, but there must be emphasis on the word friendly. There are supporters that get to the point that they blur the line between Soccer and life. Allowing those individuals positions of power causes legitimate danger as they gain the possibility of starting a mob. I understand the unspoken rules of protecting your own, Pong is the one who broke that covenant last night by attacking (verbally) the players on the pitch. If the reports of his actions are accurate, this is a big test for the Timbers Army to maintain the respect that they otherwise deserve.
