D.C. United's Namoff tribute



D.C. United fans still offer the best fan tributes in Washington sports. The Ben Olsen tribute was unforgettable, but Olsen was a legend, one of the most decorated and popular players in club history. Bryan Namoff may not be a household name, but the supporters have always loved him, and the supporters know how to send people off right.

So when Namoff -- who is third in the club's list of games played -- announced Thursday that he was suspending his playing career due to concussion issues, the supporters quickly stepped up and whipped something together in time for that night's game.

"What an amazing site to see the #26 signs," Namoff wrote on his Twitter account. "Thank u to the best fans in the league. Hopefully u see this #26 back on the field next year."

DC United may not have the most fans of any Washington sports team, but it has the best.

The United supporters are passionate but they will never come close to matching the Redskin fans tribute to Monk and Green up in Canton.
