    Something about chickens and eggs. There’s a game this weekend - let’s focus on winning that first and foremost.

    Yes, I want us to win this thing.

    More importantly, I want SOMEBODY to win this thing. Whoever does will have fully earned it.

    Also, wouldn't it good to wait to see if the ISG or whomever it is backtracks on their decision? The Shield still might end up getting awarded (unless there's some new updates I haven't heard yet).

    The rough and ready man hole cover is easy. Just needs to be coated red and my father keeps asking me where he needs to send it.

    But we both agreed to have the discussion Sunday morning.

    But, as I said, ready when you are.

    To think, a year ago today I was in NYC - on the journey to Seattle. Times have changed, but we are still supporters, and i still feel the anticipation of a big match!

    Go Reds! (Is it Saturday night yet!)

    You just beat me to it: https://www.espn.com/soccer/major-le...oup-backtracks

    The man hole cover remains an option regardless - although it will be harder to physically lift.

    . I am happy to send an etransfer to your dad to defray any costs; I think we should do this regardless; Club would love it

    im down for something new- like who wins the shield lift that and toss it and lift the new one.
    shouldnt have personal connection or saltiness in deciding a trophy for the league.

    should teach them a lesson going forward and create a new board maybe consisting of supporters from each team

    I suspect this has less to do with members' input (they didn't care for it in the first place) and more to do with the real threat of having the shield replaced by MLS next year.

    Those 5 individuals are still goofs in my eyes either way.

    I think the manhole cover would be fun to do regardless, as a thank-you to the team for slogging through the season. The Supporters Shield won’t cost us anything (if TFC wins it) and I think many would be willing to pitch in for something special, me included.

    Damage is done -

    Don't be surprised when the league develops a new trophy for the league winner presented by the league.
    Supporters shield will still exist as a token trophy presented by the fans

    The chair of this group spent a good chunk of the day throwing shade at Toronto & Columbus fans - the sort of shade a 9 year old might do.

    Imagine being a fan of a team that is the equivalent of an A ball baseball club for their energy drink over lords.

    We think it would be fun too. No contributions other than connections and collaboration.

    Will talk more in the coming days/weeks.

    Go Reds!
