Sounders vs. Timbers: An overly hostile environment?

A Sounders fan, forced to move last Sunday with his 9-year-old daughter from seats near the Timbers Army, raises concerns about violence at Seattle-Portland matches in a letter to The Seattle Times sports editor in our Take 2 blog.  The link to that letter can be found here.

The Oregonian also received a similar letter (which you can read here) from a man who took his 10-year-old son to the July 9 U.S. Open Cup match between the Sounders and Timbers at Starfire Stadium.

Do you share this concern of escalating violence at Sounders-Timbers matches? Email me, sports editor Don Shelton or use the comment thread to voice your opinion.
