Like Jim Rome used to say, "Soccer is not a sport, it is a reason to riot". Good Luck RSL.

I agree that SKC messed up the ticketing. Your article states, "When Sporting Kansas City (SKC) posted a season ticketholders-only presale on the Internet, RSL fans cracked the access code." My understanding is that a Kansas City media source posted the code. What happens when a code is posted? Yes, it spreads. RSL fans didn't crack or hack any system. Yes, the posted code was used by RSL fans. SKC (and MLS and Ticketmaster) need to do better in the future (and realize codes that can be posted on the internet are NOT SECURE - duh). Other thoughts - 1) give more of the stadium's tickets to the visiting team (only 5% of the stadium isn't enough), or 2) consider having the event in a larger stadium in a warm location (ala Super Bowl). Shouldn't Kansas City want traveling fans using its hotels, restaurants, etc. and boosting their economy?

Fans will be fans. Years ago I tried to take a 13 year-old daughter to UTE football games. Crude chants, profanity and drunkenness brought that to an end. I expect others had the same experience. Sounds like RSL is on the same path. It's their choice, of course.
