Southsiders | Sports, Group | A loose organisation of passionate, Anglo-imitative fans “supporters” emotionally invested in the annual ups and downs of the Whitecaps, Vancouver’s professional (MLS) soccer team.

AKA, The Neckbeard Dad’s Choir.

Usage | “I kinda wish Canucks fans were more like the Southsiders…”
