- Every patriot should call MLS and tell they they will boycott all future games of this shitty un-American sport until they apologize to the American people.
(Fox) - For many Americans, the 13-star "Betsy Ross flag" is a symbol of America's victorious fight for independence from Britain.
But two die-hard soccer fans in Utah say Major League Soccer's Real Salt Lake asked them to take down a Betsy Ross flag they were waving in the front row at a recent match because the team dubbed the star-spangled banner a "symbol for hate groups."
Randolf and Diana Scott, season ticket holders who have attended every home game for the team at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, came decked out in team jerseys and hats but also brought a version of the original American flag featuring 13 white stars in a circle to represent the union of the original 13 colonies.
"Diana bought it for me actually, because my other flag was kind of old and falling apart," Randolf told Salt Lake City's FOX 13.
Stadium personnel asked the couple to take the flag down or risk being asked to leave.
"They kept telling us if he wasn’t going to take it down, we were going to be ejected from the game," Diana said.
After being repeatedly asked to do so, they eventually put the flag away.
"He asked me — he's like, 'So what’s the purpose of the flag?'" Randolf said. "I was like, 'Well, 'cause we love America.'"
