In the United States, the Garth Lagerwey 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 and other Sounders FC media outlets. It is often called the "Garth-o-meter" by the local supporters.
Inspired by the success of the Fire Danger Rating and color system, this scale consists of five 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 ( Electricity Yellow): significant risk
- Guarded (Sounders Plaid): some risk
- Low (Rave Green): low risk
