Supporters groups across Major League Soccer (MLS) sent a letter of thanks to Don Garber for creating them, today, as the MLS season came to a close.
Leaders from the Empire Supporters Club, Sons Of Ben, Southsiders, Emerald City Supporters, and Timbers Army all sent a letter to Don Garber to thank him for creating them despite all of them pre-dating the league or team that they follow in Major League Soccer.
"We know that Don Garber and Major League Soccer helped create the Southsiders," stated leader James McKenzie. "If it wasn't for Don Garber, we never would have had a vibrant supporters group years before the Whitecaps went to Major League Soccer. Garber reached down with his benevolent touch like a God upon earth and graced us with his vision despite not giving two shits about our team for years until the league realized they could make money off us."
Members of the Empire Supporters Club, whose history pre-dates that of the very league itself, stated that Major League Soccer really helped write all their songs, paint their T.I.F.O, organize their away trips and help in the community as ECS organizer Oscar Gutierrez stated.
"The members of the ESC did nothing, it was all Major League Soccer. They had people who took care of everything. It's almost like we shouldn't have any acknowledgment by the league at all because they did all the heavy lifting. They were there talking about songs, they were there in the stands when it was cold. We should just let them support, because clearly the fans do nothing."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Major League Soccer finds more ways to take credit for things that rightfully does not belong to them in any way.
