Hugo hates the field

At the Coliseum. He seriously had a hissy fit in the post-game comments about it.

Of course, I'm not sure who is to blame for the team playing there instead of the Home Depot Center.

Soccer United Marketing runs Mexico's U.S. games, and they get a cut of the profit, but so does the Mexican federation. The Coliseum can hold more people, so everyone makes more money there. Hugo might complain, but he should also talk to those in charge of the Mexican team to get venue approval if that is so important to him.

Agree he should check with Mexican officials, but still - that field was pathetic. Really, the field standards need to be raised on these games. It is a pretty bad state of affairs when city park fields have a higher quality surface than our sports stadiums.
