What They're Saying: Russian Parliament deputy Dmitry Gudkov

“Every Russian fan club has about 1,000 tough guys, ready to fight at any time, and sometimes they might be used for secret political agendas, but not this time. I do not believe that the Russian authorities sent these hooligans to fight with English fans. This time, the clubs acted spontaneously.”

    That sounds about right to me. Maybe some of them our Russian Mafia.

    There is an adult club here in NYC called the NY Albanians have ties to the Albanian Mafia.

    They can play but in post season play that can be match against teams that are a lot better then them. If that happens look out.

    It is not safe to be at the field.
