Hooliginism Hits MLS

No question mark this time. The line has been crossed in Columbus according to You Tube footage. I am following the US team in London the next several days and may not have time to give this serious story the attention it deserves so please check out the latest from some other sources who are staying on top of the situation.

MLS Rumors

Steve Goff’s Soccer Insider: Washington Post

Frank DelAppa: Boston Globe

I would like to commend each of the above writers and publications for bringing this story to light and discussing the seriousness of the problem developing and realizing how a multiplication of these sorts of incidents could spell doom for MLS and Soccer in the US.

I should have more from London on the US team later today.
