Towards American soccer hooliganry

The Beckham backlash is in full-swing:

The signs all had messages directed at Beckham. “Go home fraud” read one, with a red slash through his No. 23 jersey number. Another said, “23: Repent,” while another read, “Hey Becks, Here Before You, Here After You, Here Despite You.” Another read, “Is evil something u are…or something u do.”

At halftime, Beckham walked toward the L.A. Riot Squad section and motioned to a fan to come closer. A man jumped down from the seats and was subdued by security before being taken away.

    It ‘s all part of the game. It is wrong when the fans attack the players. Carry signs or yell at him or boo BUT NEVER ATTACK A PLAYER. Bobby Gee http://bobbygee.wordpress.com/

    You can’t jump on the field to hurt someone, ever, but Beckham did call him out. Which is pretty gutless. If you’re tough, go into the crowd.
