Sporting KC Owners Still Contemplating Future Of Livestrong Alliance Amid Revelations
Published November 7, 2012
KEEP IT CLEAN: In Houston, Jose de Jesus Ortiz wrote he hopes MLS and Sporting KC officials "are vigilant ... in protecting Dynamo fans from racist taunts" during tonight's game. Several people noted that Dynamo fans were "taunted during the 2011 Eastern Conference final at Livestrong Sporting Park last year by K.C. fans asking them to show them their green cards." Ortiz: "When MLS suspended some of the Dynamo supporters’ privileges at away games early in the season for their actions during the 2011 playoffs, many Dynamo supporters reached out to me and alerted me about the abuse they received in Kansas City." Ortiz added, "I’m trying to get MLS commissioner Don Garber to address this issue and tell the Houston Chronicle what MLS can do to make sure these incidents don’t happen again" (CHRON.com, 11/6).
