You May Be an A-hole

Last night as we all watched the Sounders crap the bed in an important home match, I had the unfortunate displeasure of standing in front of five "fans" at the match. For background, I have been a season ticket holder since 2010 and, while not a member of ECS, have always stood and supported in section 123.

I realize that different people support the team in different ways and that there is no right or authentic or genuine way to show your support. That said, I feel pretty strongly that there is a wrong way to do it. So, with all deference to Jeff Foxworthy, I give you the following:

If you spend more of your time at the match bitching rather than supporting, you may be an A-hole.

If you have truly been a season ticket holder for five years and still bitch about the flags obstructing your view, you may be an A-hole.

If you complain about every single backpass, you may be an A-hole.

If your bitching about the team makes other supporters around you turn and ask you to tone down your running negative commentary, you may be an A-hole.

If you start bitching after the first Vancouver goal that we've given up six goals in two games, you may be an A-hole.

If you bitch about how much a guy is getting paid after he has a pass intercepted or a shot blocked, you may be an A-hole.

If during the match, you stay in your seat and bitch about flags obstructing your view vs. moving to a less obstructed spot, you may be an A-hole.

If you complain about how a former Sounder would have scored in the same situation where a current Sounder missed, you may be an A-hole.

If you never once cheer for the home team during the entire match, you may be an A-hole.

If you complain the entire match, but then leave before it's over, you may be an A-hole.

If you wear your WSU hoodie, you should already be used to witnessing disappointment firsthand. Don't give your school a bad name by being an A-hole.
