Sons Of Ben 'Defend The Fort' With Minute Of Silence - Brotherly Game

Further proof that supporters groups are always happy to join forces against a common enemy came on Wednesday when the Philadelphia Union's Sons of Ben rallied to the defense of New England Revolution supporters. The Sons of Ben, while counting the Revolution as one of their bigger rivals, have been among the most vocal critics of actions taken against "The Fort" last weekend. The Brotherly Game details their most visible show of support (with video) for their fellow supporters:

As a show of solidarity for their fellow supporter groups in New England, the Sons of Ben decided to have a minute of silence during the twelfth minute of the Philadelphia Unions' goalless draw with Sporting Kansas City. Along with the silence were pieces of paper held up by many members of the River End reading "#DTF."

The situation in New England seems to stand in stark contrast to Philadelphia, where the Sons of Ben have been at the heart of the organization even before the Union officially existed.
