(UPDATED 08/01/12: The AHTRAS has been updated to version 2.0 to include the newest Adrianism, which has been deemed to be the highest level of alert.)

In the United States, the Adrian Hanauer Advisory System is a color-coded transfer season rumor advisory scale. The different levels trigger specific actions by national and local media and fans, and they affect the level of rumor-mongering at some social networking sites such as Twitter other Sounders FC media outlets. It is often called the "Adrian-o-meter" by the local supporters.

Inspired by the success of the forest fire color system, the scale consists of four color-coded threat levels, which are intended to reflect the probability of a transfer rumor and its potential gravity.

  • Severe (super cyan): severe risk
  • High (red): high risk
  • Elevated (yellow): significant risk
  • Guarded (Sounders Plaid): some risk
  • Low (green): low risk
