    Cool.
    Just curious, because I don't trust any of us to not lose it or dent it in some foolish manner.


    TFC trophy case would be my vote.

    Hoping the Reds can defy the odds after winning the Supporter Shield and carry on to claim the MLS Cup. Only 6 of 21 Supporter Shield winners have gone onto do this. Not since the Galaxy in 2012 has a team won the double. Man pinch me again, still can't believe this season is happening. Wake me up please, I hope I am not dreaming. ( :

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    Speaking of security. At the Argo game on Saturday there was a grand total of zero police officers in the entire building. That's right 0 police officers in the stadium with 13,00 plus fans.

    It appears the pay duty police were not ordered. why? I don't know. Who's responsibility? I don't know that either.

    Because of NYRB's draw, TFC have now ensured no lower than 4th, so 3 points was enough.
    To ensure no lower than 2nd, we need 3 to be clear of Atlanta's max of 64. (A win on Wednesday and we don't play the knockout game; also home advantage in the semi)

    I second this!
    Crowds are thin at kick-off.
    It's gotta be at the end.

    We need to make sure the team gets the word out through email and media that there would be a trophy presentation following the game on (insert date here).

    The Bye is good for sure...but there is no Home-field advantage until the Cup Final. The two legged nature of the divisional games makes those an even contest.

    On Saturday, they have the 3PM game. We have the 5PM game.
    Saturday is this weekend though.

    Not exactly. Having the second game at home is an advantage if the game is tied on total goals as extra time will be at home. Suppose a team lost 3-2 in the first leg and won 3-2 in the second, it would be better off in that exciting emotional moment to be home for the extra time..... That's a home field advantage

    Home field advantage also works in that you know how the away goals rules is working, which will modify game plans dramatically.

    Shouldn't the sheild be presented at the first home game after we've clinched? Most likely we'll clinch at revs or home to red bulls. Seems anticlimactic to me to present it more than 2 weeks after clinching it. Plus, are we that desperate to troll the impact in our moment of glory? Do we want them gooning us in the second last game of the season before our run at MLS cup?

    I think it is more about rubbing it in the IMFC travelling supporters, I would like to see that, lots of cheeky, but classy TIFO's and 2 stick signs. That would be nice to see broadcast nation wide, and of course you know some (there are many respectful IMFC supporters) not all of the L'impact supporters will cause a scene.

    it really is about the logistics of getting it here and an international border. Its being brought up personally on the date, the club is more than fine with it as are the other groups leadership.

    Will the presentation be done in front of the prawn sandwiches or the south end? They should consider doing it in front of the supporters, IMO.

    Theatre in the round is always best but I suspect TV angles will win out.

    You could argue that for the better "TV Shot" use the camera behind the South end net, or have a steady-cam on field with the players doing the Iceland/TFC/Giant clap while holding the shield with a graphic on the scoreboard behind them.

    Or maybe I am overthinking this.

    I've often wondered what it would be like when TFC at long last wins the Shield. Always figured it would be a to-the-last-game day slog though the final fixtures. Never even considered it could even happen like this.

    I thought I heard the announcer say at the end of the TFC/NE game that TFC would win the supporters shield Wednesday if MTL beat NYCFC. That's not true UNLESS MTL also beat ATL tomorrow. If ATL win out the year, they would finish with 64 points... which means that MTLvsNYCFC means nothing in terms of TFC and the shield.

    I think ideal situation for us is MTL tie both those games.

    A MTL win over NYC means they can't catch us and we clinch a first round bye. That still means something. In theory, Chicago could still tie us but would have to make up a 21 goal GD.

    I wouldn't want to be NYC on the last game playing CBus and needing a win - that team is the dark horse in the East.

    Vancouver can win the Shield if TFC ties one and loses the rest and Vancouver wins flat out. TFC needs to win to clinch the shield next weekend.
