Supporters Week: This or That: Are you a fan or a supporter?

Welcome to a special Supporters Week installment of MLSsoccer.com's "This or That?" It's is as simple as it gets: You choose one of two options. Sometimes you might want a third option or the ability to choose "both," but that's not the point. The point is to present an either/or question and find out where people's opinions lie.


On the surface, obviously, the words "supporter" and "fan" are interchangeable. They both basically mean "someone who roots for a team."

But dig a little deeper, and a bit of differentiation appears. It's hard to define, but it seems like you know it when you feel it.

So, are you a fan or a supporter?
