Cascadia traveling supporters to be photographed

Just wanted to check in and see what you 86ers felt about this announcement:

 

Each club is required to provide a chaperone for each 50 travelling fans -a cost that, Barber pointed out, is being absorbed by the club. And travelling fans will also be required to have their picture taken before entering the venue. - Whitecaps CEO Paul Barber

To me it's a terrible development for the league and it's personally offensive to me as a supporter.  MLS is not 1980's England.  MLS SG's are not "firms" whose primary goal is getting into fights with each other.

For all the talk about how the Cascadia rivalry will revolutionize MLS and take us forward, this is a huge step backwards for the league.  It's a draconian punishment based on stereotypes, prejudice, and lies.  Supporters are the league's customers.  Hasn't MLS ever heard of "the customer is always right"?
