So these plans have been floating around in private for a while but today the Midnight Riders, Rebellion and Rev Army officially announced plans for a fan action in response to Fortgate (although it may have become more than just that and seems to include the general unhappiness for the current state of the organization) for this Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Union. As a member of the Rev Army I have been involved in these discussions and can assure you that these are well thought out and well discussed plans over hundreds of emails, conference calls and face to face conversations.
Without further ado here are the plans:
"The plan is to wear a BLACK shirt, march in as normal and have all groups fill in 143 from front to back. Every seat filled. There are some extra Support the Fort shirts available for those interested.
Have scarves up and cheer for the players and national anthems. Then at the opening whistle we sit... in complete and utter silence. Even if the Revs score 5 goals... Silence.
When the clock hits 16:00 we will start "Mama Mama" and march out of the stadium being as loud as possible and proceed to the parking lot. In order to prevent concerns of "aisle crowding" we will have people leave from the front row first, then second, third, etc. Please make sure to do so in an orderly fashion. Please do not antagonize or respond to antagonism from Team Ops, FPD, etc.
We are also encouraging people to NOT spend any money in the stadium. No better way to make a point than hit Kraft in the wallet.
We would like clarify this is of course VOLUNTARY and in response to separate individual planned protests. We will let our discontent be known this game, then we will go forward with enacting change to make the Fort and Gillette a better place for supporters."
I would also like to make a request of my fellow supporters to not antagonize those who chose not to participate, and do not respond to them if they choose to antagonize you, be the bigger person.
