I saw this a few games last year with Seaside now Valencia and Gold Coast bring their clubs flags to away games. To me when you visit another teams field you are a guest and you should respect their place. I think these flags are going to cause problems, I had one of our parents say they wanted to throw the flag down and stomp on it. I can only imagine the middle aged out of shape fight that may take place over these things. Cringing that it would happen and a video show up on the nightly news

Thoughts?

I have no issue with it at Tournaments which usually is just to mark a meeting area.

I think your reading too much into it. Who cares what the other team brings. Your objective is to beat that team on your home field and send their flag saluting idiot parents back from where they came from. haha and valencia??? pleasee one big act but a fake club with no real ties to the real valencia

no problem with it at all, I think we should start bringing the drums as well. Once people start enjoying low scoring games through fun maybe the sport will grow. (US experts say Americans are too stupid to enjoy a low scoring sport)

I say not only bring a flag, but let’s kick it up a notch and have the team lap the field after a win and then plant it in the middle of the pitch

US Experts on the sport? I didn't think we had any. Oh yeah, maybe its the dumba** US chief scout who said Messi lacks soccer IQ and is very average when playing for Argentina. LMAO!!!

Cowbells are always a favorite. Can't have enough cowbells.

Waving flags and making noise is way more fun that listening to parents scream bloody murder every time they perceive a foul or little Timmy gets knocked down.

MORE COWBELL!!!!! HAHAHAHAH

There is no conflict whatsoever. It isn't even against league rules unless specifically stated.
Keep quiet. Enjoy the game. You are way overthinking this.
Any grown up who has a problem with a team flag and considers starting a fight or destroying other people's property should probably just stay home.

Let’s be clear here-Flags don’t cause problems, People DO! The idea that a visiting team should not bring their flags or display their colors just shows how unsporting and rude people can be. Bringing your flags or colors to a visiting team has nothing to do with being “disrespectful” to the home team. This is youth soccer, not two warring nations being incited to violence because the other faction shows it’s “battle flag”.
This is what is wrong with youth soccer today and what referees like myself have to deal with in today’s game.
Let’s stay focused on the fact that this is supposed to be fun for the players no matter what level they play.

Nice in theory. I was at a high school game yesterday where the visiting coach complained that the student body was cheering. Nothing obnoxious nothing rude, They were warned once to stop. They did not stop and 30 kids were thrown out by their own school districts security. It was absolutely the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe that 11th and 12th graders playing a sport are concerned with the cheering that is going on at an opponents home field. I feel like throwing up when I think that I pay $20,000 in school taxes for that to happen to the student body. As a country we are soft which bears reason why we cannot compete in the global soccer market.

That is really upsetting! I would love to see the student body at every school filling the stands. I would love to hear them banging drums and chanting songs and having fun. Can you imagine a college basketball game where the school has to ask the students to stop cheering too loud. Soft parents, soft coach and a soft generation of kids overall. Let the kids cheer on their school team
