101 Great Goals found some video of the "brawl" between West Ham United fans and Columbus Crew fans on Sunday. Somewhere, Oakland Raiders fans are watching this and laughing their spikes off. A few punches are thrown, but for the most part, it's just a few drunken Englishmen trying rouse some rabble. Those Crew fans probably see worse than this every autumn Saturday at Ohio State home games. Even the English press seems bemused by the whole thing.
Then again, those West Ham fans are dirty foreigners, so this must prove to haters like Jim Rome and Bryan Burwell that soccer just is too dangerous for America. Whatever. For an incident that some are labeling a "wake-up call," it wasn't exactly the Malice in the Palace.
