MLS on Streamers: Well We Changed Our Minds
MLS Commissioner Don Garber has decreed there will be no more streamers on the field of play. I could see this coming with the several bottles and other items that pelted the New England Revolution players during the last Columbus home game on May 24th. I think that streamers would have been OK with the league if that had been all that was thrown.
I loved watching the streamers rain down from across the North End, but I think it is ultimately too difficult to allow one type of projectile and not allow another. Some idiot(s) saw the streamers and chose to launch their empty bottle at the field. I am sure the supporters groups will figure out a way to show their spirit.
