Why so much hate? We love you all!
We are going to take a moment to explain our intentions. It seems some people think that we are some type of group looking for fights in stadiums and what not. This is not true. We are a group of FANATICS! We have huge sense of humor. Hence the name (We will explain the name later). We are standing up for a belief that we think is right. Just because you do not see things how we do does not mean we are attacking you. We are doing the complete opposite. Please come to games. Sit where you want. Support how you want. If it is not in the fashion that we support in, so be it. We will not bash you, hate on you, or call you out. You are a fan and that is good enough for us. We appreciate anyone that supports our beloved club FC Dallas. We don't care what is happening in Houston. This is Dallas and we will be a great supporters group, PERIOD.

We want a section filled with fanatics. People jumping, screaming, tossing up beer **Cough** El **Cough** Matador. We want fanatic fans! We want to create an intimidating stadium for rival teams. We want them to see the stands and think "Wow, that looks insane". We are not looking to start a riot or harm anyone. We want to intimidate the opposing team and cheer on our home team. Being a supporter entails both of these aspects. 

If you do not agree with what we stand for, fine. All we ask is to be mature and not flame us as we are not flaming you. 

To the name. Some people find it offensive which is ok. We have used this name for 13 years.  This is the name that the core of this group has used for PC gaming. We competed in world competitions under this name. So it was natural for us to adopt it for this group. Everyone can find something in a name to be offended about. Relax, calm down, let us get ready for the new season!

I do not know what the FO has against it's supporters. Yes, we cuss. Yes, it gets a little wild. Yes, the RARE smoke bomb does happen. What is the big deal? There are other supporters groups that do this and never hear a whisper about being banned, Arrested, or Threatened. We are wanting the same from our FO. Let us do what we do best. BE SUPPORTERS! Is it really that bad that a smoke bomb was set off in the stands? Was anyone killed? Did anyone die? From the reaction you would think so.

The recent problems between the FO and El Matador hurts everyone. They set off a smoke bomb which we all know is not allowed, but what is the problem? I refer back the first paragraph. It was done in a safe spot and nobody got hurt or killed. The FO may be using it as an excuse to get rid of some of the hardcore supporters....who knows. I myself got "Banned" for a game for a smoke bomb going off. I was not even approached about it, or shown evidence. Just walked up to the gate and my ticket got denied, so I just kept walking in.

So El matador. We support you. It is time for change in the FO's eyes on there supporters. Let us support the team. As long as flares and smoke bombs are not flying onto the field I do not see what the big deal is. This is also an hot topic in the MLS FO. I leave you with this video. Listen to the announcer. Step up FC Dallas! Step up MLS! It is time to show true support!

This was in Chicago.

Blas Perez

Blas Perez For Mayor!

So Blas wants to be the mayor of FC Dallas Stadium? Only if the SBE can be his Deputies. We are in Texas after all.

So far we are loving Blas and his connection to the fans. He is all over the social networking front . It makes us feel very connected to the team. We appreciate the time you take to respond to us. We will show our appreciation in the stands.

So Blas, from the Defenders of the Mayor. We will be there every game supporting you and the team. Lets get the season started!

Holding Our Breath for Ferreira

Whew.  Big day for FC Dallas fans.  A trip to a foot specialist scheduled for today should shed some light on David Ferreira's status.  While he has been full speed in practices, there is a hope that he makes an appearance tonight against SMU.

I think back to the 2011 campaign (I would say season, but there were so many levels on which our side competed that just pointing out the MLS season seems to be a slight) and wonder what could have been.  Even with Ferreira out FCD competed at a high level in all venues.  But... what if?  We will never know.

I personally believe that with all of the new elements and unknowns moving forward, it would be wonderful to have the core of our team solidified.  Who better than the 2010 MLS MVP to make that happen?  Shea is wonderful and our new acquisitions seem to have solid histories but with international commitments we need David back to help cement our status in the league.  This season may have an element of "rebuilding," but I hope that it turns out to simply be "reloading."

Until we see the man confidently sprint through the pack, carve through defenses and do what I remember him in doing with frequency in 2010 (suffering a foul and bouncing right back up again) we will all be collectively holding our breath.

Match Fixing?

There have been a few articles come out on how the MLS seems to be pretty vulnerable to match fixing (links to follow). Is the MLS vulnerable to match fixing? Yes. Every league in the world has this problem. The MLS is not immune to this. With how the league is growing it is inevitable that the league will experience "fixing". No matter how big or small the act, it will happen.

All you can do is hope that nothing major happens that kills our fragile league. We would hate to see something like what happened in Italy. Italian soccer has dropped off a lot since those dark days. Lets hope the powers that be will investigate any leads with all the man power they have. If someone is involved ....The league needs to deal with it harshly. Remove them, ban them, whatever it takes to show that the MLS will never stand for any type of match fixing.

We did not watch the game today where the "handshake" incident took place. All I need to see is what happened during the incident. 

First of all Racism has no place in football or the world. Suarez was 100% in the wrong and should have stepped up like a professional and shook Evra's hand. This snub at Evra should be the end of Suarez's career. This has no place in the game. 

Racism is so childish in the first place. This grown man resorts to petty racism to get his name in lights and grab the headlines. I hope FIFA and the EPL move fast and handle this in the way it should be handled. Later Suarez, we don't have room for you in the beautiful game.
