Violence During Las Vegas Soccer Exhibition Shows Work To Be Done At U.S. Venues
Published July 12, 2013
DON'T RUSH TO JUDGMENT: In Las Vegas, Ray Brewer wrote, "Don't judge all soccer fans by what happened last week in Las Vegas. And not just fans in Las Vegas -- worldwide." The crowd violence was "one of the worst black-eyes in our town's sports history." The fans "ruining the soccer experience seem to have one thing in common: They live and die with the outcome of a meaningless soccer game." It is "inaccurate" to think all soccer fans "lack common sense and decency" (LAS VEGAS SUN, 7/11).
