Looks like they are realizing they made the wrong decision after all the blowback lol...
The Supporters' Shield Foundation board would like to provide an update:
We are currently holding meetings with supporter group representatives about the original decision in light of new information and feedback we have received.
A public update will be forthcoming.
Honestly, the reason we're discussing it again is because of the reaction to the announcement, but even more than that, it's because Dan posted that it was awarded in 2001 even though not everyone played the same number of games. I'll be honest and say I did not know that and that changed my mind on it. That's precedent in my opinion.
Our original idea was to protect the integrity of the Shield due to an imbalanced number of games played. Now that we know this has been handled already, we are looking at it again.
