Ugly parts of the beautiful game.

I seriously do not understand what is gained from violence in the stands. I think too often people either lose sight of what matters [the game] or they prove that they were at the game with other intentions altogether.

I was in the middle of the crap some of Legion's members started before and after the game. I don't know how throwing bottles at people before the game accomplishes anything, especially when there were women and children in that group.

What I really didn't get is why on earth they would go out to the parking lot looking for a fight after they had won. Their bus was waiting for them on the other side of the stadium, but that didn't matter to them.

Again, people I know including women and kids under 18 were hit by bottles and other crap that was thrown.

It's a scary part of our Latin American cultures sometimes, and I think Andrea wrote about this when those incidents took place. Stuff like this happens quite often in South America and it's sad that it is imitated in Mexico and apparently it's reached us with Legion.

Where did this happen?

There were 2 incidents last year...

Chivas USA vs. Galaxy

Chivas USA vs. Chicago

You can't really see anything in the first one, but in the second one you can see 2 members of legion attacking another guy.

A lot of reporters shyed away from talkinga about the first incident because they did not witness it first hand, and don't think they even even heard about the second. It's unfortunate, but with Legion, you never know.
