USL Gone Wild!

It's the weekend of the weird. In the aftermath of the incident on the Revolution's flight to L.A. yesterday, we received this gem of a dispatch from Crystal Palace Baltimore following its 2-0 USL2 victory over visiting Western Massachusetts at UMBC Stadium:

The rivalry between the two clubs reached a new level on Friday night. Pioneers Coach Leszek Wrona was reported to the local police for opting to use the wall of the visiting team's locker room to diagram his team's tactics before the match. When Palace played at Western Mass in May, the hostile atmosphere reached boiling point when a fan smashed a window on the Palace team bus as it was leaving Lusitano Stadium after the game.
CP Coach Pete Medd spoke candidly about the incidents: "Who does something like that? No wonder they have the worst disciplinary record in the league when their coach behaves like that. The league has to do something -- there's always some incident with this team every single game, everywhere they go, guaranteed. It's embarrassing. They're completely out of control and it gives our league a bad name."
