For the most part anyway American professional sports confine their violence to the field.  I don't recall any situations here where hotels or restaurants had to hire armed guards to deter fan violence arising from a sporting match. I don't recall any stadiums here containing moats, attack dogs, or guards with automatic weapons. 'Beautiful Sport' indeed! ;-P~~~~~ RonL. [1a] Yeah. Some exceptions exist - but are pretty rare. [1b] Not true, of course, for non-professional sports.
