Racist Crew fan banned for life

The MLS commish came down hard on that guy shouting racist taunts at the Revolution's Kheli Dube.

Banned for life!
"MLS and the Columbus Crew are working diligently with all relevant authorities, including Club Supporters Groups, to identify the spectator involved.

In the event the perpetrator is identified, he will be banned for life from Crew stadium and all other MLS stadiums and events.

MLS takes enormous pride in our commitment to racial and ethnic diversity and inclusiveness - in our stadiums, on our fields, and in our administrative, coaching and ownership ranks.

We categorically will not tolerate this language in any context or setting and are working with all of our clubs and stadiums to ensure that this isolated incident is not repeated."
Well done sir.

Now if only identifying him were that easy.
