Rams fans and Ferguson protesters clashed on Sunday afternoon outside the Edward Jones Dome after the Rams secured a victory over the visiting Seattle Seahawks, according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter who witnessed the incident.

[su_center_ad]The situation escalated when one of the fans spit on one of the protesters.

A fan tried to take a flag from one of the protesters, who then struck him and took the flag back.

Two women, one of whom was a juvenile, were arrested after the fight, police said, according to the paper.

One woman was reportedly punched in the face after chanting “Let’s go Rams” to the protesters after the situation got out of hand. She was later treated and released by paramedics. No details were released on the other woman who was injured.

According to police, two groups of about 20 to 25 people each were involved in the incident. .

Just yesterday, white thugs ravaged a city in West Virginia over a football game.

    I did see a black woman assault (sucker punch) a white guy. Doesn’t help your cause lady.

    • Teddy Simon October 20th, 2014 at 12:20 pm

      Not to mention the one dragging the American flag on the ground , if your going to try and use the flag to help your cause don’t disrespect it

      • Ayn Awnemus October 20th, 2014 at 3:10 pm

        It’s an upside-down flag, I think disrespect is the point

        • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:13 pm

          or in the real world it means distress. You know like all the phony xtian teabaggers do when ralling against the ‘black guy in their WH”

          • Ayn Awnemus October 20th, 2014 at 3:17 pm

            Were they in distress? Depends on how you define distress, I guess. Either way, they have a right to disrespect the flag if they want and the guy taking it from her was technically committing assault/theft

          • OldLefty October 20th, 2014 at 3:23 pm

            The upside down flag is NOT a show of disrespect.

            It is is an official signal of distress.

          • Ayn Awnemus October 20th, 2014 at 3:25 pm

            Right, so isn’t using it as anything other than an official signal of distress disrespectful?

          • R.J. Carter October 20th, 2014 at 3:26 pm

            It’s our flag. If any one of us wants to communicate distress of the nation, we’re allowed to fly it upside down.

          • Ayn Awnemus October 20th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

            I’m not saying she isn’t allowed. The man taking the flag from her was committing assault/theft. They were not in immediate distress, though, immediate distress is if you need someone to rescue you if your ship is sinking or if you are stranded somewhere you can’t get out of without being rescued

          • R.J. Carter October 20th, 2014 at 3:32 pm

            At the point he began to take the flag from her, she was in immediate distress. Having the flag already upside down was just prescience.

          • R L Buds October 21st, 2014 at 2:18 pm

            He was taking it because she was attacking people with it, but whatever fac’s are irrelevant to you people (liberals).

          • R.J. Carter October 21st, 2014 at 2:32 pm

            LIberal? Liberal?!?

            Hold me back people…

          • Khary A October 21st, 2014 at 2:54 pm

            THAT’S RIGHT PEOPLE!! We are live at the Thunderdome and it’s R.J. ” The Franchise” Carter verses R L “The Dank” Buds in a no holds barred steel cage match for the title. Now what do you have to say about that Mean Gene?

          • R.J. Carter October 21st, 2014 at 2:59 pm

            LOL! “Mean Gene.” Man, that takes me back! I still remember when Hulk Hogan turned NWO heel on PPV, and Eric Bischoff went gray with a single haircut! Thanks!

          • Khary A October 21st, 2014 at 3:05 pm

            Right?! WCW was the best at that time. If you can ,try and find Dusty Rhodes “Hard times” monologue or when Flair lost his mind and handcuffed himself then stripped down in the ring.

          • R.J. Carter October 21st, 2014 at 3:08 pm

            I can still see all that in my mind. I miss WCW. The night Vince took it all over, in simulcast, it was interesting — but it went downhill from there.

            Remember when Gold Dust’s gimmick was to be a flamboyant cross-dresser? That wouldn’t fly today!

          • Khary A October 21st, 2014 at 3:34 pm

            The pink frilly underwear…Burned into my retinas it is. He still wrestles as Golddust apparently with his younger brother who is just a regular old wrestler no gimmick. Yeah I stopped watching after WCW and ECW both went under WWE’s wing. The memories of those matches though good times.

          • R.J. Carter October 21st, 2014 at 3:56 pm

            I remember my first exposure to ECW was when they were on some off-off-off cable network. My wife and I were in Godfather’s Pizza in Sanford, NC, and they had wrestling on the big screen. We sat near it, because we didn’t know if it was a WCW or WWF pay-per-view. We didn’t recognize the people. Then Tommy Dreamer too a 2×4 wrapped in barbed wire to Raven, who just sat there in the corner of the ring.

            “WTF are we watching…?” And we couldn’t turn away.

          • Khary A October 21st, 2014 at 4:14 pm

            Ive been to multiple matches for ECW. They used to shoot it around my ways in MA at the Wonderland Ballroom. Those guys were Friggin crazy. I once caught a nasty moonsault from Sabu when he was trying to take out New Jack from the Gangstas. The one thing that stuck with me as we all tried to get up from the floor was the cloying scent of Bengay. So there’s every chance you might have seen me at some of those matches.

          • Chinese Democracy October 21st, 2014 at 4:13 pm

            at least liberals know what a fact is

          • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:32 pm

            or afraid of being killed for the crime of being black

          • R L Buds October 21st, 2014 at 2:11 pm

            The crime is ACTING, not being, black.

          • Chinese Democracy October 21st, 2014 at 4:14 pm

            how do act black?

          • Khary A October 21st, 2014 at 4:15 pm

            Good Question.

          • R L Buds October 21st, 2014 at 4:22 pm

            By lashing out with minimal provocation.

          • Chinese Democracy October 21st, 2014 at 4:37 pm

            oh black people lash out with minimal provaction… like ” instict driven savages” isnt that what you typed? 🙂

          • R L Buds October 21st, 2014 at 4:40 pm

            Well yes, but to be fair I have seen them lash out with no provocation.

          • tracey marie October 21st, 2014 at 5:24 pm

            got it stormfront

          • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:26 pm

            how is killing not distressful?

          • OldLefty October 20th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

            The point is that the nation is in distress.

          • raincheck October 21st, 2014 at 7:09 am

            It damn sure is… And in MHO it’s the Republicans putting us there, dividing up the country (I know it’s not as simple as that) I hope Democrats shock everyone and vote in record breaking numbers..BUT with voter suppression going on?

          • OldLefty October 21st, 2014 at 7:16 am


            I love how they tout “wrong direction” numbers, when Democrats, liberals and Obama supporters also say the country is moving in the wrong direction.
            It started in Jan 2011.

          • raincheck October 21st, 2014 at 7:57 am

            Excellent point.. I think about that too. It seems like the media doesn’t like to make that point… The “numbers” sure can be used to manipulate someones perception of reality..

          • OldLefty October 21st, 2014 at 8:41 am

            It’s just like how in 2012, Obama and Democrats were almost ALWAYS ahead, it was, “Too close to make a prediction” (I maintain that there is no reason to make predictions at all).
            Now it is too close, but the narrative is that it will go to the GOP.

          • OldLefty October 21st, 2014 at 1:28 pm

            They only report headlines, never the internals, which often give a very different view.

            Remember all the polls that showed that more people disapproved of the ACA, about which the GOP concluded that the “American People” rejected this ‘Big Government interference into healthcare!!!!

            But the MSM rarely reported that more people approved of the ACA the way it was OR said they disapproved because it did not go far enough than disapproved because it went too far.

            They love to report that PEW reports that a majority believe that America has lost respect in the world, but don’t report on Pew’s international polls that show that people in other countries respect America more since 2009.
            Both polls are correct, but the American people’s view of the rest of the world is incorrect.

          • raincheck October 22nd, 2014 at 2:06 pm

            Polls can be a dangerous thing when used improperly…. which I’ve seen from BOTH sides (but lets face it republicans do it far more often)… it makes me angry when I see this… I keep seeing how according to the “polls” Americans (of voters most likely to vote) would prefer to see the republicans running the Senate… which makes NO sense to me, considering republicans have such a low approval rating..that is until you see the way it is worded (of the people most likely to vote) This gives the impression that most people prefer this.. We need to get people that aren’t as likely to vote… to vote. I wish they would poll all of the people that are “eligible” to vote, to show how the ‘majority’ of Americans feel about who should run the Senate… Dang it I wish I could express myself as well as most of you folks do Lefty…. Anyway I agree 100% with what your saying… keep up the good work getting the “FACTS” out there… This is one of my “pet peeves”

          • OldLefty October 24th, 2014 at 8:30 am

            Thank you.

            I often feel a sense of despair in what we see, to quote Yeats;
            “The best lack all conviction, while the worst
            Are full of passionate intensity.”

            It makes sense that young, busy people don’t vote in the midterms, while the older, (mostly GOPers) who are voting out of fear of EXACTLY what the majority of the nation favors, DO vote in every election.(Remember the GOP fundraising strategy of appealing to the “visceral givers”??)

            It is easier to get people to vote from their guts than from their heads, especially when the actual issues are rarely discussed.

          • raincheck October 21st, 2014 at 7:01 am

            a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property

          • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:23 pm

            lol, how is it disrespectful to feel distressed when black people are killed, maimed, and more on a daily basis by cops and white people

      • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:11 pm

        why did the big white guy try to steal the flag from that tiny little woman?

    • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:12 pm

      because the white guy tried to steal the flag from a tiny little woman

    • tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:33 pm

      was it the spitter?

    • raincheck October 21st, 2014 at 7:15 am

      He deserved more than that for trying to steal her flag! WTF was THAT all about? What made him think he could just do that, besides the fact he felt braver doing it because it was a woman holding the flag?

      • Budda October 21st, 2014 at 7:20 am

        Are you justifying an assault?

        • raincheck October 21st, 2014 at 7:46 am

          What would you do if someone was stealing something from you, using brute force? I don’t condone sucker punching someone.. however I can understand something like that happening, when people are being spat upon, while someone else is using brute force to steal something from you in an emotionally charged situation… I’ve been in a fight or two in my life and got punched… but that was NOTHING compared how I

          • Budda October 21st, 2014 at 10:02 am

            The person who you say was having something stolen from them did not do the assault. Again, this type of action does not help the cause.

        • tracey marie October 21st, 2014 at 8:17 am

          I would say you are justifying the assault and theft against that tiny young woman from a big guy

          • Budda October 21st, 2014 at 9:59 am

            Hardly. I didn’t see him assaulting anyone, but that gal sure did.

          • tracey marie October 21st, 2014 at 10:30 am

            shoving and pushing a young girl and trying to steal her flag is not assault and robbery to you, figures

          • Budda October 21st, 2014 at 12:47 pm

            Didn’t see that. Did you?

  3. tracey marie October 20th, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Why do all the football fans feel the need to disrespect, mouth off, taunt and even shove and grab the protesters belongings?
