I was just giving the argument from the Fire fanbase.

Claim: We (SKC fans) clowned your fans.

Rebuttal: Your team lost. (And your team has lost three games in a row.)

There is no good way in this scenario to counter "scoreboard." I mean, make it into a contest of who has the "better" fans if you want to. But that sounds awfully like a Chiefs thing to do.

SKC is officially in second place in the eastern conference. NYRB just overtook 1st.

ALL talk of the the cup and especially of the supporter's shield need to stop. Instead, the entire organization and fanbase needs to be concerned with how the team can win a single game and with how the team can play good soccer once again.

They kept taking crowd shots of the Man City fans at the end of the game, they look so helpless. It was as if they were hopelessly watching a close friend or family member get mauled by a pit bull and they had no gun nor syringe full of antifreeze.

I just find your aversion to people enjoying aspects of sporting events hilarious.

Yes. We should post on these message boards in a different manor. That will help us win.

Admittedly, I am very sensitive to the general characters of fanbases. Very sensitive. The fanbases are the sole reasons that I dislike, say, the St. Louis Cardinals or the Kansas Jayhawks. I don't want to see the SKC fanbase become a bunch of wildly overconfident blowhards.

Wow. Here is a list of all USMNT games since the 50′s and the associated highlights, all in one place.

Sorry for crashing the SKC thread with this but the Sky Sports reaction to Man City's Goals. Phenomenal ending.

In the fashion/behavior sense (irony tinged with nostalgia) or the music sense ("I was into _____ before they got 25,000 Twitter followers. Now they suck.")?

I am not a fan of my teams in any sort of ironic sense. Though KC sports teams would be very easy to accomplish that with; I wonder if people outside of KC think of people wearing Royals shirts as doing it ironically.

If a KC sports team ever does win something then I'll at least get to claim "I was a diehard fan longer than you" to the bandwagoners. But I won't stop liking that team because of their success. Now, I stopped liking the Red Sox franchise after their successes, because their fans turned into colossal dicks. I can already tell that if ever it was the case that Mizzou or Chiefs or Royals fans experienced a championship then they would be insufferable. The difference is those teams will still be local teams; I can't turn my back on them even if the fanbase sucks.

So, no, I don't think being a sports hipster is exhausting to me. Mostly because I haven't tried being one.

Header finally updated. Big game at Colorado. We have had their number lately but its a different team with some talented youngsters. They are also prone to doing stupid shit. Should be about 80 KC supporters making the trip out there.

Also there is this.

Sporting Club receives four StadiumBusiness Awards

LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, Robb Heineman, and Sporting Innovations take four of six awards

TheStadiumBusiness Awards were announced today at the Museo dell'Automobile di Torino in Italy. Sporting Club earned honors in four of the six categories the company was nominated for including Venue of the Year, Executive of the Year, the Community Award and the Product Innovation Award.

LIVESTRONG Sporting Park was selected as Venue of the Year for the world’s best stadium, arena or sports venue – from the small club to the mega-capacity national sports facilities. The $200+ million venue was up against competition from four different continents.

Other nominees for Venue of the Year included the site of the 2012 NBA All-Star Game (Amway Center) and 2011 Rugby World Cup (Forsyth Barr Stadium), as well as the home of Brighton & Hove Albion FC (The American Express Community Stadium).

The club’s state-of-the-art facility, opened to rave reviews in June 2011, has already hosted the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams, along with the English Premier League’s Newcastle United FC and Mexico’s Club Deportivo Guadalajara. The stadium was selected to host the group stage of the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup and served as the site for the semifinals and championship matches of the CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament in April of 2012. The stadium is set to host Stoke City FC of the Barclay’s Premier League in August.

LIVESTRONG Sporting Park also won the Community Award for a stadium, arena and major sports complex that has found new ways to support, enhance and improve its local community while Sporting Club CEO, Robb Heineman earned Executive of the Year as a sports venue leader, pioneer or visionary that has over-delivered in the past 12 months. Heineman was recently chosen as one of the most promising young executives in sports business under the age of 40 by SportsBusiness Journal at the organization’s Forty Under 40 Awards gala in March.

With a unique vision and expertise in technology, Sporting Kansas City launched Sporting Innovations in October of 2011. Sporting Innovations (SI) is a sports technology company focused on developing and deploying next-generation technology to support the sports industry, and its fans. Sporting Innovations won the Product Innovation Award for their FAN360 Application. FAN360 is a real time delivery of interactive experiences by injection of sociographic data to create social intelligence and facilitate engagement.

LIVESTRONG Sporting Park was also nominated for New Venue Award and Customer Experience Award.

Sporting Kansas City will host the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup third round at 7:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday, May 29 at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced Wednesday. Sporting KC will await next Tuesday’s second round winner between the KC Athletics (USASA) and Orlando City Soccer Club (USL PRO).

All Sporting Kansas City Season Ticket Members will receive a ticket to the May 29 match at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, and all subsequent Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup home matches through the quarterfinals, as part of their season ticket package. Single-game ticket information, including pricing and on-sale dates, will be announced at a later date.

The U.S. Open Cup is the oldest annual team tournament in American sports history with origins in 1914 and is named after Lamar Hunt, the original founder of Sporting Kansas City.

The single-elimination tournament began Tuesday with 32 teams participating in the first round and will continue through the final on August 7/8. This year’s field of 64 teams is the largest in the competition’s modern era with all 32 professional clubs in the United States represented alongside 32 amateur teams.

The 16 domestic Major League Soccer teams each enter in the third round and match-ups are based on a geographic basis when feasible. Hosts are determined by random selection among clubs who have applied to host and meet minimum venue requirements.

Sporting Kansas City won the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup in 2004, defeating the Chicago Fire 1-0 on a golden goal by striker Igor Simutenkov at Arrowhead Stadium.
