TA purity tests. Exclusion of "wrong thinkers." Now I understand how Bosnia happened. When one can justifiy that sort of behaviour at a soccer match then it's an easy step to "ethnic cleansing." Those TA people are scary.

That guy sounds like a major fucking douchebag himself.

The most douchey of all Portlanders is the LA transplant who continues to cheer for LA sports teams. Please move back.

DOUCHEBAG FIGHTING DOUCHEBAG. WHAT HAS THIS CITY COME TO?

SERIOUSLY, ALL THESE ORGANIZED SCENESTERS IN PORTLAND ARE MAKING THIS PLACE THE PITS. I'LL TAKE LA DOUCHE OVER TA ELITIST FUCKS ANYDAY. THIS IS COMING FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS LIVED HERE ALL HIS LIFE. SHOVE A LOG IN IT!

Andrew Brawley seems to be the vaginal shower in this scenario. All the people who claim to have spoken with supposed DBs say they were very friendly, not booing, and generally respectful.

Maybe Andrew should calm the fuck down and stop playing rent-a-cop.

I have been a Timbers fan for well over a decade. Some friends and I have gone to many matches in that time. I am part of TA, and I believe it has come to represent something else. As a friends pointed out (we are both EPL fans, Arsenal in my case), "1/3 of these fuckers aren't watching the fucking match". He does have a point...I think support for the Timbers is a great thing but you are not in fucking central London. Chill the hell out. That said a lot of the Seattle and Vancouver fans I've met are douchebags, but sadly so are some fans here

The Timbers front office doesn't even like the Army. They take themselves way too seriously, and this guy in the article is the perfect example.

"When they aren’t participating in pre-match Timbers chants, they demand my attention."

Could you sound like a bigger douche bag?!

If the TA is trying to bring themselves down to the level of the play on the field, mission accomplished.

I'm reading this story and am struggling with what the hell it means.

The Timbers Army are upset that "douchebags" are sitting in their section? Did I get that right?

And the Timbers Army weren't quite sure if these people really were douchebags until they unveiled the LA Galaxy logos sharpied onto their chests? Because until the logos came out, these douchebags were indistinguishable from everybody else in the section?

Is that about right?

These bros infiltrated my bar on Friday night. They were a bachelor party from Vancouver BC and were the WORST customers I've encountered since we've been open. No exaggeration. Fuck their hats.
