Hi John,

Just trolling the "b) no violence" bit.  For the most part anyway 
American professional sports confine their violence to the field. [1]

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!



[1a] Yeah. Some exceptions exist - but are pretty rare.
[1b] Not true, of course, for non-professional sports.
