TFC LA Game Action - Final Decision From The Red Patch Boys

Direct from the Red Patch Boys:

"Well, this has been a hell of a week and a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

After much debate, we have decided upon a course of action to express our concerns over the state of affairs in TFC-land.

I know several forum users have been eager to join in this initiative, so these are our plans for the next steps. Please join us in ensuring TFC gets the message and continues to strive to do the best they can.

This is the plan for Saturday:
No official merch or colours
No banners or flags
Yes capo, yes drums. (<--no point in going and chanting and not doing it properly, I think) At the end of the game, win or lose, we meet at Gate 3 and march to gate 4 to protest the FO During the game chant and sing for the boys on the field. Whatever we may feel about what needs to happen with the team, we need these three points on Saturday. We will reduce our in-stadium spending. I know not everyone will boycott beer, but try buying one instead of two, or two instead of three. We will aim for a full-on concessions boycott, but we also need to build it up and try to get as many people on board as we can. We will aim for the June 13th game as the 100% boycott. At the same time as we plan this for Saturday, we are also looking at measures to express our concerns through email campaigns and phone campaigns to our ticket reps. On Monday, when the Madrid tickets go on sale, we should all phone our reps to register our concerns. We will put forth a list of concerns we can all express, but feel free to make your own . We will also put together an email that we can send to the higher ups at the team. This same sort of communication will be sent out through our Facebook group and the message board users list. We may need to get some flyers showing our concerns printed and be ready to hand these out by the New York game. These are the first steps after which we will assess the situation and move forward. There will be a meeting with the heads of the supporters groups and the team this afternoon which will hopefully help clarify some of our concerns."
