    Speculating on what might have happened because of a Montreal twitter post is never a good idea.

    Having any mention of another supporter group because of pure speculation is just bad form and should always be avoided.

Jeez the amount of times ive been to Montreal and had to defend myself in a fight just because im from Toronto. Stop trying to get too involved people nobody should be judged and told to be " Banned from Bmo" as some idiot on here stated. Grow up its a derby, fights happen trying to expose your own and get people/other groups in trouble is something that doesnt unify or build supporter groups. Keep doing this and the great support we have will fall. This thread should be shut down or any thread that tries to bash our own toronto fc supporters right or wrong.

    Some people should grow up - and realize fighting doesn't just "happen". If you've had to defend yourself in fights a number of times in Montreal, maybe the common theme is you. I've spent a lot of time in Montreal (and a number of places in Quebec) without problem. I hate the Impact, but it is a terrific city and I have yet to have any run-ins with anyone. One time someone who I suspect was bilingual seemed to pretend they didn't understand English when I asked for directions - I said "thanks anyways" without a fight developing. I'm sure there are people who would fight someone simply because they're English (seem to be idiots that would fight someone just because they're French, too), I'm just amazed that you seek that minority out so well. Being a derby is no excuse for fighting. Hooliganism is idiotic in every part of the world.

    As for people jumping on Ben, I see no wrong doing. The original post asked if anyone knew of any trouble and posted the tweet. Ben replied "disgusting if true", another reply said "if its a group with prior incidents then it needs to be taken care of", and Ben - simply stating and not accusing - said "some replies claim ineebs". In no way was he trashing them or looking to drag their name through the mud, he simply repeated what was said. Not "people say it was ineebs", not "it was ineebs", but he said "some replies claim". He wasn't placing any blame. Sure - without any proof, probably best to say nothing but I don't think it was said with any malice. I'm sure he would have said the same if people speculated any other group. Get off his back.

    My biggest issue is that you say we shouldn't be trying to "expose" our own. Yes. Yes we should. If the story is true, this is not okay. I will not accept that supporter groups will grow and unify behind beating up opposing fans. If that is the case, I want no part of a supporter group. Which reminds me, are you a member of a supporter group?

    Sorry, I'm not going to ally with idiots who steals a kids scarf.(Assuming it's true, and I have my doubt), or anyone who thinks football culture is about violence.

    C'mon man I just asked him not to call someone an idiot. Disagreeing is going to happen we don't have to sling mud to get our points across.

    Thanks

    Also take care in Mexico.

    I think he’s implying all people on the board, but, we would need clarification.

    I just wanted to use the sloth gif... it’s from the cult classic The Goonies from the 80s.

    We do have an issue when if there are rumours/accusations then one supporters group immediately comes to mind.
    I wasn't in Montreal, so this is just a general observation, but if one group is consistently involved in stuff that results in action from the league/MLSE, then it is an issue for our group.
    The sanctions have spilled over to our group and had a negative effect on the opener. And if there are continued instances, perhaps MLSE takes away some of the benefits they allow all supporters groups, rather than just punish one.
    Once again, this is not a comment on anything that may have happened in montreal, just the idea that one groups actions do have an impact on the others. Thats why as RPB we have a vetting process for our members.

    It's funny; I have witnessed derby altercations in western European countries and for the most part it usually reserved for High School and First Year University Students looking for a fight which isn't exactly a foreign concept in Canada it just happens to occur outside of campus life in the public space.

    Although I think the general demographic that follow TFC is well past this phase of their life and for those that haven't quite got on board with adulthood it might be wise too.
