So now the tension has turned vicious, leaving David Beckham as a hunted pariah by American soccer fans who feel used and abused by his whims. They did much more than boo him Sunday night in Carson, Calif., where he was making his 2009 home debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy. In a seating section unfortunately known as the "L.A. Riot Squad," a sort of riot broke out, with fans berating Beckham, waving banners that said "GO HOME FRAUD" and "23: Repent" and literally holding up his jersey and taking whacks at it.
