Columbus, OH - Already renowned for their strict adherence to an anti-capo, leaderless chant state in the stands, Columbus Crew fans decided for MLS Cup to disband into leaderless collectives focused on dispersing power structures to the many.
"We are strictly anti-authoritarian, anti-capo, anti-dictator, pro-agrarian leaderless collectives that are built around a general but non-specific physical and gender-less love of the Columbus Crew in all its forms" stated the dissimilar elected spokespeople of their collective factions.
The Nutmeg News spoke to one of the faction deputies who was given the task of speaking to the press on the manner and they had the following to say. "We, with the new anarchic Crew fan groups, want to promote decentralized, anti-capitalist leadership who are tacitly united against all forms of the centralized capo-led patriarchy typical of our lesser than equal compatriots in Major League Soccer. This includes the overproduced and emphatically bloated Emerald City Supporters with their megaphones, speakers, and centralized capos and the heavily industrialized and faux-militarized Timbers Army. We with the collective of dissimilar and un-united Crew fans stand against such usage of core centralized foundations and remain united around the team as we rally to the cry of NO CAPOS provided of course that a quorum of fans vote upon the idea of what being a Columbus crew fan is, what that ethos means to them and what it means to be a Crew fan within a small collective faction."
Reportedly this stress on anti-authoritarian, anti-capo is expanding into stadium infrastructure as Crew fans in supporters groups are now feeling confident enough to exist outside the confine of the Nordecke. One collective member stated, "While we appreciate the Nordecke, it is itself a prison for our ethos. We will find our better expression of our reality of being anti-capo by expanding out into the far corners of Mapfre in order to better serve our fellow fans with chants and banners."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as rogue splinter groups of Crew fans stand up to create factions with strong leadership that endorse the capo methodology and are justly labeled as splitters.
