I'm furious. Dodgers owner, the arrogant a-hole Frank McCourt, states he is "confident all measures were in place." Really?!!

Also, I'm appalled that the victim's friends are raising money for his hospitalization. The Dodgers are not paying for this? Unbelievable.

Dodgers ownership is even more rotten than I thought and, sorry, the franchise needs to suffer until we can get rid of the FrankenJamie monster.

Dodgers Roasted on Safety Issue

McCourt told the Times he's satisfied the Dodgers have done everything they can to make the stadium safe. If so, then all the fans have to worry about is getting to their cars before the call for an ambulance is necessary. How about more lights in the parking lot, or McCourt asking his buddy the mayor to assign more cops?

. . . two fans beat a San Francisco-area fan nearly to death.

Calling these monsters "Dodger fans" is ridiculous.

You know what team has mad dog fans?

The Pittsburgh Pirates. For two years I had season tickets for the New York Mets and every time the Pirates played their fans would cause fights all over the place.

I got in a few cheap shots myself.

Heartless statements from McCourt and his PR guy, and it appears the Dodgers are not paying for Stow’s hospitalization. Can this organization get any more low class?

Proper security measures in place, when there were 75 arrests and one vicious attack in the parking lot?

Does Janet Incompetano work at dodgers stadium too?

Welcome to Chavez Latrine. The "fans" there are nothing more than boorish gang-banging thugs who are in between Lakers and Raiders seasons.

I witnessed them throwing trash and beer on an 80-year old lady when the Freeway Series (Dodgers/Angels) was on a few years back. Then there's the guy who is doing 50-to-life for stabbing a couple of Giants fans in the parking lot a couple of years ago.

You couldn't pay me enough to want to go to that hole. And the fact that they try to claim that it's "safe" there is laughable.

I’m thinking that the only difference between this event at Dodger stadium and any other sports arena is the media coverage. After all, if it ain’t reported it didn’t happen..........

I don’t live in SoCal any longer, but I still listen to John and Ken (KFI 640 am) on the internets. They say there is too much of a gang presence at Dodger Stadium to take the risk going there.

This is why I prefer to see MLB games at AT&T Park in San Francisco, thank you very much! Not only are the sightlines excellent, but the quality of the concessions are top-notch and the security at the park is generally pretty good. Small wonder why many call it the best MLB ballpark, period.

MLB needs to force the McCourts to sell.

Do people actually still go to this ****hole? I stopped attending the games 20 years ago. Frankly, I wouldn't be caught dead there.

Thank God for television.
