Stuff like that is pretty rare in baseball. Sure, there are drunken fights (mostly trash talking) that may take place in the stands or in the parking lots---but soccer violence is rare.

Yeah was thinking more about world soccer when I said soccer "fans" were the ones having fights.

Yeah, like this has never happened at Angel games.



Fan dies after fight at Angels game

April 8, 2009 | 11:54 am

Police are searching for details about a fight at Angels Stadium on Monday night that led to the death of a Buena Park man.

About 8:45 p.m. Monday, as crowds were leaving the stadium after the Angels' opening-day game against the Oakland As, witnesses saw 27-year-old Brian Powers fighting with another man near a stairwell in the right-field pavilion, according to the Anaheim Police Department.

During the fight, witnesses said, a third man approached Powers from behind and punched him in the head, making him fall and strike his head on a concrete step. Powers was rushed to UC Irvine Medical Center, where he was pronounced brain dead around midnight Tuesday, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez.

"We're asking the public's help to find out what the fight was about," Martinez said.

The male suspects, who fled before police arrived, are described as being between 25-30 years old with goatees. Police are reviewing security videos that may have captured the attack. Witnesses are asked to call Anaheim police at (714) 765-1944.

Sound identical to the description given of the thugs at Dodger Stadium.

.
It would be interesting to compare the number of violent incidents at Dodger Stadium and Angel Stadium. I would like to see actual statistics. That said, I hope the new measures that are being implemented by the LAPD and the Dodgers scale down if not completely eliminate the level of violence at Dodger Stadium. I wonder if this will have any affect on whether Los Angeles receives an NFL franchise.

What's more urban than Dodger Stadium? It's near the geographical center of the city.

They created a ballpark without a single place for children to play.

Stadium Way is lined with kid-friendly parks leading right up to the Dodger Stadium gate.

yet, its the least urban ballpark you could imagine. its surrounded by a sea of parking lots, on a hill, with no direct rail access and 3 entrances / exits.

Ideally, the ballpark would be moved down near chinatown in the new cornfields park. That way it would be adjacent to the chinatown stop on the gold line as well as to Union Station. also, that neighborhood has so much potential that this would be a huge boost.

I'm a Sports Arena guy, but six in one, half dozen the other.

Why would Dodger Stadium and the land be separate from the team in a potential sale?

The team, the land and the stadium are all managed under separate shell corporations. McCourt moved everything into 20 odd different corporations as part of his scam. His lawyers are now claiming that even if MLB takes the Dodgers away from him, he will still own the stadium and surrounding land.

And when you dig deeper, you start to realize what a total sleazebag McCourt is. Even though the team is bankrupt, the Dodgers owe another one of McCourt's shell corporations $300,000 per month for rent on the stadium and parking lots. So McCourt is owed $3.6 million per year by his own team, even though his lenders put a cap on how much income he can make from the team. "Fraud" really isn't a big enough word for what he pulled here.

Until I read about this, the whole concept of the Dodgers moving was unthinkable. Now it has to be seen as a very real possibility, to get McCourt's claws off of the team.

i hope you mean the possibility of the Dodgers moving from the current location to another in Los Angeles, because there is no way in hell the team is leaving the city.

They certainly haven't moved before or anything.....

But in all seriousness I would be shocked if they left the LA area, or even Dodger Stadium for that matter.
