No One Wins 'The Fracas At The Fort' - The Bent Musket

We may never actually get to the bottom of what is now being called "The Fracas at the Fort," when New England Revolution security forcibly removed numerous supporters. But The Bent Musket, SB Nation's Revolution blog, did their best to at least talk to some people who were involved and summed it up this way:

The night ended with a nearly empty Fort. There are two confirmed arrests and 20 Gillette Stadium bans, with rumors of far more. Later in the match, several independent supporters tried to get up and lead the sparse remaining fans in some innocuous (and now nearly inaudible) but were yoked up and removed from the premises almost immediately.

From the sound of it, the supporters groups at least want to believe that what happened on Saturday was the result of overzealous security, and not so much at the direction of Revolution front office officials. That's certainly less than clear at this point. Either way, the supporters will likely protest by remaining silent, which they seem to know is the exact goal of some of these security forces. This doesn't seem likely to have a clear winner anytime soon.
