Didn't DC United figure that putting the Screaming Eagles in charge of mentoring kids was a bad idea?

I understand putting Barra Brava and District Ultras on ice, if DC United doesn't disassociate from the more unruly and uncontrollable supporters groups when moving into the new stadium when would they ever make the break. I also understand the team making the Screaming Eagles the official fan club for distributing supporter section tickets and charity work. SE are easier to work with, they won't openly defy team wishes and rules, they won't embarrass the team with songs that don't belong in the new stadium,(and they had no issue making a deal at the expense of the other groups).

But the big red flag is having the Screaming Eagles pair up with young fans with the bizarre mandate of teaching the kids how to root for the team. Matching up a bunch of single guys with local at risk kids is a disaster waiting to happen. Really makes me question the motivations of the decision making powers in the team office.

Screw the DCU front office, their ownership , and the screaming eagles. I’ve supported this clubs through everything since 1996. Season tickets from 03-10 with Barra Barvva. This is how you treat them? Despicable. You should be ashamed of yourselves and the Scraming Eagles and their leadership should be to! Well you can kiss my support goodbye.

This is embarrassing. I keep telling myself "wait and see, this may work out after all" but I'm getting closer and closer to just chucking my Screaming Eagles jersey in the trash. What's lost in all this is that Ben Olsen and the players aren't at fault for this at all, and we need to keep supporting them as we always have. I'm just gonna do so from the comfort of my living room from now on.

The excitement is palpable as the energy builds towards Audi Field judging by the positive responses and yes, a few brickbats from some quarters, to our Valentine's Day partnership announcement.

While all of the details are still being worked out, the Academy will be an integral piece of our partnership with nonprofit DC SCORES and with D.C. United. DC SCORES provides kids in need in Washington, D.C. with after-school soccer programs, teaches them how to write and perform poetry and spoken-word pieces, and teaches them how to research and address community service projects in their own neighborhoods.

The Supporters’ Academy concept is being closely developed in conjunction with DC SCORES, and is intended to bring DC SCORES kids cost-free to attend United matches. We believe that by bringing kids to United matches regularly and bringing them into our community, we can encourage them to become lifelong supporters of D.C. United and have a positive impact on their lives. We are excited to share our passion and love for the game and the team with them, and in turn discover the unique ways they will support United.

Chico was the man, but it's a new stadium and time to move on. Chico will always be remembered by the old time fans from RFK days. For the new kids coming to Audi Field there needs to be new traditions.

The escalating personal attacks on individual members of the Screaming Eagles need to stop now. These have been directed at dedicated supporters and volunteers who have done nothing to warrant such baseless attacks on their characters. Threats of violence, even ones indirectly implied, have no place in United supporters' culture and we will not tolerate those who make them. Such attacks, even the ones defended as only jokes, only drive supporters farther apart. Substantive concerns and questions should be directed to the Screaming Eagles board or to your own club leadership, should you be a member of another group.

Now, the question would be - Will R St. SW be widened to allow for all the gay fans driving to Audi Field?

Seriously, though, this infighting needs to stop before the new stadium opens. When you have a single supporters area for all the groups, they’re going to have to figure out how to deal with each other. Like it or not, they’re going to be sitting in the same area of Audi Field, and sooner or later they need to stop squabbling or things could get ugly.

The Screaming Eagles won't last, they're done. They're going to be sitting between two groups who hate them and who will be taunting them the entire game. It won't be any fun so they'll quit and abandon the supporters section.

Our partnership with D.C. United ensures all supporters can access single-match tickets in the Audi Field supporters’ section. But that section will not be “our section” any more than it could be any one group’s section–it is your section, our section, everyone’s section.

Let’s talk. We have scheduled a meeting open to all supporters this Saturday 4/7, 12:30–2 pm, at the Northeast Public Library, 330 7th Street NE, with SE President to answer questions about the partnership & discuss the formation of an independent supporters council.

As stated in our FAQ, we support the formation of an independent council to formalize collaboration between all supporters on section conduct & activities. We believe it should be structured to ensure broad-based support across all SGs for decision-making for the section. We believe council initiatives should have broad support, with the caveat that there should be no compromise on bans on racism, sexism, homo/transphobia, intimidation, or violence. We believe these expectations are noncontroversial & shared by all D.C. SGs.

Regarding the supporters’ section itself, we are committed to being part of a section with as much freedom for supporters as possible. We also support full transparency regarding MLS and United’s speech & conduct rules and consequences for violations. The move of supporters from sideline sections at RFK, located in front of more casual fans, to a separate endline section at Audi Field can & should open up greater freedom for all supporters to show their passion for D.C. United & create an electric, imposing atmosphere.

We remain committed to pursuing partnership with both La Barra Brava and District Ultras. Talks have been held with leadership from each group on multiple occasions and, moving forward, our door is open at any time to more talks regarding collaboration on the section. The birth of the Audi Field supporters section was never going to be easy, and compromise is going to be required by all sides as supporters come together in one section at AF. We recognize that our communication of the details of the partnership added to that strain.

So we commit to keeping all supporters informed & will provide regular updates on all supporter section issues going forward. In return, as we provide openness & pursue cross-group partnership, we ask that our members & volunteers be treated w/respect during this process. We want to be part of a matchday atmosphere at Audi Field that includes a unified community of D.C. supporters, one creating a home field advantage unlike any other for our players on the field. Please join us 4/7 & help us build a bridge to each other & towards that goal.

It's not "our section", but if you say mean things to us we will kick you out.

Leadership of the Screaming Eagles knows that there is a repeat offender in their group and has done nothing about it tells me that they value the illusion of “All Welcome All United” over the safety of the women in their group.

Leadership is brushing incidents under the rug…Not confronting and banning men from the section for abusive and harassing behavior...

What good does waving a pink and rainbow flag and yelling “ALL WELCOME” do if there are no actions to back it up? Empty words and empty promises.

SE members are ready to branch off and get back to the basics of drinking beer and cheering for the team. All they need is a name.

At long last! After many months of searching high and low to find the right venue, we are delighted to announce our tailgate location for the 2018 D.C. United season: The Matthew Henson Earth Conservation Center! This fantastic spot, just two blocks from Audi Field, is run by the Earth Conservation Corps (ECC). The ECC is a nonprofit youth development and environmental service organization that has been part of our new neighborhood for over 26 years, and we are thrilled to be working with them. For more about the ECC, check out our website.

A rotating selection of beers and cider will be available, and for those who don't drink alcohol, water and soda will be on hand. Current SE members drink for free.

Non-SE members are also welcome to enjoy our beverages with the purchase of a tailgate pass. In a departure from our previous Lot 8 tradition, the Screaming Eagles will no longer be preparing our own food.

However, food trucks will be present to make sure you don't go hungry, and you're always welcome to bring your own tailgate setup. Plus, you might want to save some space to sample the offerings Chef Jose Andres and his team are cooking up for Audi Field!

Parking is not available at the Henson Center, but it is easy walking distance from two metro stops: Waterfront-SEU and Navy Yard. It is also accessible via bus (#74). The address is 2000 Half Street SW.

The Henson Center is a terrific venue, one we believe will offer our members the festive and friendly tailgate atmosphere the Screaming Eagles are known for. Large indoor spaces, as well as outdoor decks and walkways, provide beautiful views of the Anacostia River. A grassy area in front provides plenty of space for outdoor activities.

Best of all, the Henson Center is home to beautiful, amazing birds of prey, and SE members can visit them! Want to meet an owl or an osprey? Now's your chance (under the supervision of the ECC staff, of course).

Screaming Eagles tailgates are open to all D.C. United fans, regardless of membership status. We're excited to provide a pre-game venue for all fans to enjoy. Even if you're not an SE member, you're welcome to join the party! However, we hope you'll consider purchasing a membership, as having a current SE membership does confer a number of benefits, and the more, the merrier! If you're interested in helping out at our tailgates, you can contact us via Facebook, or via email at tailgates@screaming-eagles.com.

We'll see you July 14th!

A bunch of us non-leadership folks put together a FB group open to all, designed to be a collaborative space for sharing ideas on how to make everyone's shared exp the best it can be. Pls consider signing up. We understand why people are pissed and we have concerns too. This group is designed to help foster collaboration and give people a place to discuss and volunteer to assist with game-day activities at Audi Field, including tifo.

Again. This is open to anyone and everyone. As blazindw said on FB, we're doing this as a Field Team and quite frankly without support from the board. We were tired of them standing around waiting to reach out and we have taken the initiative. In the end, we're all there for the guys on the field. They deserve the support, the atmosphere, and that's the approach we personally are taking. It's not about the SEs, DU, BB or any other group. It's about all of us supporting our team.

If you're not interested, I respect that. Do you. We're just doing what we can to try and help and decided to stop waiting around for something to happen. If folks are mad and have made up their mind, that's cool. maybe some folks will see this and want to help. if that happens, i'll take whatever. people trying and helping is cool stuff.

It's *way* late, but maybe we can make something happen. We're just trying to be positive and keep it moving.

BB just confirmed that they are out for 2018. The Screaming Eagles have "won" but left scorched earth in their wake, the Audi Field supporter section will be indistinguishable from any other section. I suspect that SE members will not be wearing their gear when not traveling with a group.

Supporters' March
July 14, 2018 @ Canal Park to Audi Field

Years ago DC United Supporters and Fans marched united in support of a new stadium for DC United. Everyone was promised a #StadiumForAll, but on July 14, when Audi Field opens many of those these same Supporters' have been intentionally excluded by DC United, as it refuses to treat all fans equally and sell tickets to all Supporter's Groups. Audi Field is not a #StadiumForAll it is a #StadiumForTheFew.

For years La Barra Brava and District Ultras dedicated themselves to supporting the team and the DC United Community on and off the field. Now we call upon our members, all Supporters and all fans of DC United to stand with us as we fight for a #StadiumForAll. Bring your drums, flags, signs and voices. Join us for the March, whether you are attending the match or not. Make a difference.

Event Details

3:00 Event officially begins at Finn McCool's 713 8th Street SE, Washington, DC 20003

5:00 Free shuttle bus begins to run from Finn McCool's to Canal Park.

6:30 Last shuttle from Finn McCool's to Canal Park (the shuttle will run from Finn McCool's to Audit Field after 6:45)

6:45 March from Canal Park to Audi Field (about .9 miles)

8:00 Kickoff (prior to kickoff shuttle bus will transport anyone not attending the match back to Finn McCool's, including flags and drums, where the match will be on the TVs with sound.)

Good Morning. Yesterday D.C. United messaged the Founder and President of the Barra, offering North end tickets on the same terms as their other supporters, and offered website and/or box office assistance to help set members up.

Hopefully this helps towards some resolution

This back of the bus offer is not a resolution.

(There will be no Puta chants)

The last offer from DC United was an insult. Those of us going are going to spend the whole game fucking with the Screaming Chickens.

I'm one of those people convinced that the BB leadership overplayed their hand and are now being deliberately misleading about the specifics of their negotiations in order to save face.

District Ultras are thugs and Barra Brava are price gougers I will never share a stand with “fellow” supporters like that.

Oh, and we heard about the plan to disrupt the march from the Conservation Center to Audi Field. The cops have been informed, so might as well call that off.

Funny that the Screaming Eagles were the only supporters club to not come out against the FloSports deal, almost like they had a secret arrangement ahead of time. But that would be out of character for them, right?

Two questions for the SE: 1) is the Lot 8 Life profile a one time thing or is this going to be a weekly deal with FloSports? 2) Are the SE leadership subjects being profiled or are they paid hosts on the show?

Once again when DCU takes an action that has a negative impact on the fan base the SE leadership already has a deal in place to profit from that action.
