Hooliganism in the U.S.?
As mentioned before, I moonlight (as if this were a paying job itself!) for the Chicago Sports Weekly. My column there this week is on the prospects for hooliganism in American soccer.
The piece was prompted by the new book from British ex-hooligan Dougie Brimson (known to frequent these parts himself), March of the Hooligans, in which he raises some interesting questions on the issue.
I’ve tried to take a fair-minded approach to all of this, but I’d love to hear comments and criticism too. It’s a tough topic to write about without veering towards the sensationalist, so I found this a tricky one to deal with.
