For Orlando City's supporters, it's not purple that's off-color

Saturday night at glorious Disney Lion Stadium (or whatever Orlando City's calling the field out back at ESPN Wild World) was much like any other of the soccer matches there this season.

The Boys in Purple were unrelenting on the soggy pitch. Fans came out in droves despite both lousy weather and I-4 traffic on a buggy, humid, damp weekend night.

But in the beleaguered supporters section, it wasn't about what USL PRO scoring leader Kevin Molino was going to create (he almost created a score in the 60th minute), or if Oviedo's own Dennis Chin would excite the crowd by scoring a goal (he did, and he did 33 minutes in), or if the Lions would keep their unbeaten league match streak intact, now up to 17 games. It was how the Iron Lion Firm and the Ruckus would react to a rough week.
