Seattle, WA - Despite ensuring that he takes absolutely zero credit for any of the banners, two-poles, T.I.F.O, and merchandise that he creates, Sounders fan Zach Quisenberry was reportedly very upset that no one knows what he does in the Emerald City Supporters (ECS).
Friends state that Quisenberry overheard a conversation between two fans at the recent Sounders v Houston playoff game regarding their disappointment in the available merchandise this year for the ECS.
"I don't want any of the glory for what I do, but you should know that I'm singularly responsible for what you enjoy on matchday and the t-shirts that you are currently wearing were designed by me and my friends," stated Quisenberry to a group of new Sounders fans. "You need to understand the history of this supporters group to understand what the older fans had to go through in order to create the atmosphere that you so casually enjoy without a lick of effort."
According to surrounding fans, Quisenberry was asked, "Who are you?" and, "What are you talking about?"
The long time Sounders fan stated, "You should know," before storming off without giving an explanation.
The Nutmeg News caught up with Quisenberry today to ask him about the scenario and he stated, "I don't want any credit for what I do. I'm not in this for the fame and recognition. It seems like the new fans don't understand what we had to go through to get where we are today. They don't know our legacy. It's not our responsibility to explain that, though. They should just learn, somehow."
When asked whether he would explain to new supporters what he and his friends did for the ECS or what new fans should know about the people that contributed to the supporters group, Quisenberry stated, "Good fans don't take credit for things in the supporters group and we don't document what we do with journos." Quisenberry then stormed out of our interview and logged onto twitter to complain about the interview that he scheduled with our journalist.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Quisenberry is still very upset about the lack of recognition for his work
