No Respect For The Loyalists
The Loyalists are the official fan club of Real Salt Lake. Aside from the obvious fact that official clubs are never cool, there is a larger reason The Loyalists are lame. When RSL was going through a tough spell, the "loyal" fans were the first to call for the firing of Coach Ellinger. Those cries have since quieted now that RSL is doing better. But where were The Loyalists when RSL's front man Dean Howes completely bungled the stadium negotiations with SLCo, earning the derision of all involved as well as the nickname "chowderhead"? Maybe if Coach Ellinger were a multi- millionaire, he'd have the respect of RSL's mickey mouse club too.
