This wasn't exactly what I was planning to write after the Union's 2-1 loss to Red Bull New York. I was planning to write about Peter Nowak's wisecracks after the game, and about how spectacular Red Bull Arena is.

But then Sons of Ben member (and Rank and File voter) Brad Youtz posted the picture you see at right to his Facebook page. Youtz also posted on Twitter that "Red Bull fans threw rocks at our bus and cracked three windows."

Whaddya know, football firms in America, or at least wannabes stuck in an 80's time warp.

I don't think you're going to prove any points by posting every little incidence of fan unruliness here.

I agree, people sticking their fingers down their throats to puke on little kids happens every where, it just doesn't get reported.

Yeah I puked on three kids on the way into the supermarket this afternoon, no biggie.
If you can't handle a little puke, get out of the kitchen. I think that's how it goes. :-?

This also may be awful, but not on the Phillies Fan's part. I'm torn on how I feel about use of a taser here. Part of me says the kid shouldn't have been on the field in the first place, part of me says you don't need to tase a guy when you could just tackle him. The fact that he's a kid is irrelevant - you have no idea how old the guy is when you're chasing him down.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A police officer used a Taser gun to apprehend a fan who ran onto the field during a Phillies game Monday night, and the team and the police are investigating whether it was an appropriate use of force.

The fan, wearing a baseball cap, red T-shirt and khaki shorts, hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield, eluding two security officers in the bottom of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals. One officer used a Taser and the fan went down in a heap. Several Phillies placed gloves over their faces and appeared to be stifling laughter at the wild scene.

Phillies spokeswomen Bonnie Clark said the police department is investigating the matter and discussing with the team whether using the stun gun was appropriate.

Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore told The Philadelphia Inquirer police internal affairs will open an investigation to determine if the firing "was proper use of the equipment."

Vanore was not made available to The Associated Press when a call was placed to the police department's public affairs office late Monday night.

The teams said it's the first time a Taser has been used by police to apprehend a spectator who ran onto the field.

The fan was 17-year-old male and he will be charged with criminal trespass and related offenses, the team said. The Phillies did not release his name because he is a juvenile.
