The week 22 MLS Tifo of the Week goes to the 1906 Ultras for their display against the Timbers Army this last week. I enjoyed the tifo, well done and easy to understand.
I was at that game… Great idea but it was hard to read and didn’t play that well in person.
I did enjoy watching the looks on the faces of the Timbers Army once they finally got it.
Classic, I loved it. TA needed a reality check
Portlandia…you have the nerve to talk after your crew did probably the worst tifo in the history of MLS: the Morton girl with an umbrella? Hahaha! If all of you guys would spend your time on making tifo rather than being full time online warriors, maybe you would do more than a couple of tifos a year and can improve their quality too.
I cannot believe the amount of whining coming out of Portland. SJ thinks you’re a joke so they make tifo about it. Either prove them wrong (stop taking money from the FO and trying to publicly vilify the Ultras from your soapbox) or else shut up about it. Seriously, you guys are too much to take. And this coming from a NYRB fan.
1906 Ultras, I may hate you but at least I respect you.
Yeah, for some reason Oregon as a whole has become really stuck up and snobby especially toward Califronia, they needed a wake up call.
Hey 1906; Portland isnt worthy of your scorn because they aren’t on your level. They are weekend warriors white kids with no passion, hordes of active twitter accounts, and lots of disposable income.
San Jose and 1906 are all sorts of hilarious. Thanks for the laughs boys.
Typical nonsense from supporters banned from traveling to road games by their own team.
I don’t get it. Should celebrated tifos be ones that actually support the team, not ones that are clearly just meant to heckle and antagonize the opponents supporters (or the opponent themselves)? Funny? Maybe… but I still think that support of one’s team is what defines a supporter.
Is this what they got in trouble for?
I’d like to know if something else went down. This tifo isn’t as bad as the “Tonight it All Goes In” piece against the Sounders. I get a FO wanting to approve tifo but ban it all together? Crazy!
The FO posting was a direct rebuttal to this:
1906 made a banner that read: “Only In PDX, Running Over A Female With A Car Makes U A Victim”. After some PDX fucktard thought the term “Female” was sexist, Quakes FO decided to extend the ban. the 1906 statement came after the ban was extended.
Step 1: start a rumor that the TA gets money from their front office. Make tifo about it and convince yourselves that it’s true.
Step 2: wait for TA supporters to refute this claim
Step 3: complain that the TA spends too much time arguing online
As for the “only in PDX…” banner, that is even stupider than the above tifo. The girl was ran over because she was trying to break the car’s windshield and the driver was trying to get away.
I think that they’re just jealous because Chris Wondolowski got to finally celebrate a goal in front of a great home crowd for once: http://www.portlandtimbers.com/news/2013/07/gold-cup-chris-wondolowski-revels-rare-portland-adoration-after-leading-usmnt-past-beli

Dear people who say that heckling other supporters and teams in tifo isn’t worthy of a tifo,
Grow up. Its done because we speak the truth.
When we went to Portland a portland fan told us that the Timbers Army gets a certain percentage of season ticket purchases from their front office. That, ladies and gentlemen is something called RECIEVING FUNDS FROM YOUR FRONT OFFICE.
The online warriors is also true. I have read on forums and postings on facebook of portland fans inticing 1906. When things came to be reality they flexed their muscles before and after the game and screamed for sanctions afterwards.
They lied to the league saying 1906 used homophobic slurs/chants when none were used. outside of their stadium I witnessed a man blatantly wearing a timbers army scarf go up to one ultra spit on him and shouted “come at me faggot!!” No blows or haymakers were thrown at him as there should have been. Deliberatley spitting on another man is just distasteful. Would never do it myself.
At the sj home game vs Portland after the initial portland incident a flare was lit and dropped behind section 108. A section full of soccer moms and their families.. no ultras ever touched a flare that night (probably can be proven since there’s always a camera focused on the ultras) and yet to my knowledge the timbers army went on unpunished.
Reason being? NOT ONE 1906 ULTRA HAS EVER SCREAMED FOR BANS OR PUNISHMENTS AGAINST ANY OTHER SG. there’s no need to complain about what others do. the higher ups can do their own jobs.
SJFO is just trying to promote another SG (can be proven via twitter.[they promoted that supporters groups viewing party]) in hopes that they will replace 1906 and are also trying their best to bury the ultras… which will never happen. #free1906
very rarely do I agree with TA supporters (Bay Area Sounders guy here), but this is one of those situations. 1906 has a major attitude problem. Perhaps it’s the SF envy, or perhaps it’s because they’re just sort of jerks. I am not sure. Not every SJ fan is like this (see Fault liners), but for the most part, the 1906 Ultras are just a bunch of dudes with way too much machismo. Get over it dudes. This isn’t WWE or MMA. Quit trying to prove yourselves, and be confident in your masculinity without feeling the need to prove it. There’s a reason that no one from the city or Oakland likes to come down your way. This is it.
Moving past the mental state of a 16 year old is fun. Trust me.
spoken like a guy that’s never been to a game
