Our 19th Anniversary

19 years have passed by. Hundreds of players and hundreds of members came around and went away. Plenty of good and plenty of bad. Satisfactions and disappointments. Tons of memories. Above it all, still thinking independently, still fully dedicated to the cause we believe in, and always loyal to our principles. Still choosing quality over…

Galaxy Away

Nine years ago, following some incidents at Buck Shaw, the head of the Quakes security at that time wanted to ban the Galaxy fans from future games in NorCal. We strongly opposed that decision and eventually reversed it. It’s detrimental to any rivalry game to be played with only one set of supporters present. The…

Boycott Qatar

From day one, we’ve been the group Don Garber hated the most. He despised our independent voice and refusal to be the league’s puppets. He tried to get rid of us for years. Despite that, when Don Garber was battling cancer, we were the only group to make a banner of support for him. It…

The Superleague and Qatar

Soccer was stolen from us years ago and turned into a gigantic corporate business meant to make the rich richer and push the poor away. 4th place teams from the rich countries were allowed to participate in the ironically named Champions League, while the actual champions from poor European countries were consistently pushed away from…

A Letter to Our Community

Dear SJ Earthquakes Community, We are all in this together. Quakes fans, Bay Area residents, Americans, and human beings. Tough times filled with uncertainty, fear, but also hope. Throughout the years we’ve been giving it all of the Quakes: singing, waving flags, making tifo, traveling members of our local communities, we have been trying to…

Almeyda’s Treatment

It’s well known that our group has been a target for this league since day one. We’ve always been independent, outspoken, and have stuck by our principles… qualities that this league seems eager to relentlessly suppress. Our reward for daring not to be like the majority of the manufactured fanbases and plastic groups of puppets…

The Stanford Atmosphere

No tifo. No flags. No smoke. Not even streamers. Dull, colorless, boring atmosphere. Definitely not our idea for such a big game as the Cali Clasico. Everything is a safety hazard, every single move is micromanaged. Every “violation” brings lengthy bans. Passion, honesty, sacrifice, and loyalty are seen as negative traits in the increasingly corporate…

Looking Forward to Next Year

We hope you all took a good look around you in the stands during those long losing streaks this season. You might have had a hard time seeing those sitting or standing near you, because there were too many empty seats between you. More and more each game. There was a lot of ugliness. Sad…
