When are the major news outlets and CONCACAF going to be honest about Mexico soccer fans?
ESPN, SI, Yahoo sports etc calling out the fans last night in general with absolutely no honestly that it was clearly team Mexico fans targeting US players. Same from CONCACAF. They are going to have to punish the Mexican national team at some point.

Not enough people care about soccer to make it worth major outlets to say something

I guess so but the major outlets ARE saying something about the game and the fan behavior in general. They are just stopping short of calling out the team Mexico fans. Is it too politically incorrect to call out the fans because it would look anti-Mexican, anti-Hispanic? Truth isn’t racist or bigoted. It wasn’t all of them or even the majority of them, but it was a lot.

It's just one of those noble lies they have made part of their partisan agenda. Most major media outlets should have to register as PACs

The MSM has fully jumped on the woke bandwagon. That means specific criticism of the culture of minorities and historical "victims" is off limits. If this were England, there'd be headlines all over the world specifically calling them out and pundits would be proposing fan bans and empty stadiums. But because the offenders here are brown, nothing will be said other than headlines that imply both sets of supporters were misbehaved.

And let's not forget that it's pride month I'm guessing that's the only reason why they stopped the Mexican fans this competition because I don't remember that I'm stopping games over the puto or puta chant before this.

It is funny how some people will presume racist intent with the recent NBA incidents. Even with little actual evidence
But very few media members will flat out say that it was Mexico fans chanting and throwing shite. Despite everyone in the room knowing this to be the case

Don't hold your breath. I think it's even less sinister than the woke theory, CONCACAF and these tournaments lose millions of dollars with no Mexico. Even the stadiums lose money from the friendlies Mexico play in the US. Until the USMNT is an actual draw for serious American dollars, MX is the golden goose that no one will stand up against seriously.

Would love to see some critical theory explanation about how intolerant the US is while explaining how the Mexico soccer official Twitter has nothing about pride month and chants puta during games, while the USMNT Twitter has pride stuff everywhere and tweets about how bad the chants are.

When is the media going to be honest?

Lol, when Timo Werner scores a real goal or when someone gets past N'Golo Kante

Bro, get Timo out of your head. Or don’t, actually, because it’s hella fricking entertaining

This is the answer. They're the biggest draw in CONCACAF by a mile.
