In Los Angeles the LA Clippers Vs. LA Lakers would have fans dominated by the visiting team. This is given that Clippers and Lakers share the same stadium. LA Lakers would dominate Crypto arena when they are labeled as the visiting team because the stadium has the LA Clippers logo on the court.

IIRC, the Clippers are getting their own arena in the near future. Wonder if that will change things.

Here is another one this time for the NFL the Metlife Stadium is the home field for both the NY Giants and NY Jets at the same time. In the event of a Giants Vs. Jets game I think NY Giants would get an advantage that would dominate Metlife stadium given their past championship history.

Last time the Yankees came to Fenway, I was a little amazed at how many Yankees fans were there compared to prior years. It was like a ton of Sox fans just unloaded them on StubHub or something.

Enough there to start their classless "Boston Sucks" chant, all the while paying hundreds and thousands to the coffers of the city they are claiming sucks.

Do you ever engage in "Yankees Suck"  chants? I don't see any difference between them (though I'm a fan of a different AL East team and thus root against both teams equally).

Also, yes, the old stadium name use by fans is intentional.

I can hear the "Dodgers suck" chants when the Giant fans visit Dodger Stadium, and "Giants suck" by Dodger fans in San Francisco. If you're a fan of another NL West team, you hate both teams the same way. My wife is a Padres fan (because she is from San Diego and proud of it), so she would root against the other two CA teams equally.

I know it took a while for me to respond to the original point, there is a large difference between your [city] sucks and your [team] sucks. Figured that was pretty obvious but whatever. I've never chanted "New York" sucks, especially in a stadium where 3-5K of the people there are New Yorkers coming to Fenway to help my region's economy.

My high school, Green Bay East, shared their stadium with Green Bay Preble. It was strange playing them at our stadium when they were the home team and we had to use the crappy visitors bleachers on the river side. (Honestly, the home bleachers weren't much better but they had more seats and were closer to the rest rooms and concession booth.) My school also had better teams so we were usually more numerous and louder. The same happened on the West Side with GB West and GB Southwest.

They actually played their home games at Lambeau until they got kicked out. Then they built a stadium at West High.  All the schools eventually got their own stadium.

Didn't get kicked out as much as the Packers built the West Side schools a new stadium so they didn't tear up the turf at Lambeau. I remember going to a couple high school games in Lambeau before that happened. But yeah, the Packers definitely wanted them out of Lambeau.

Yes it was field issues.  West stadium wasn't completed for a couple years afterward.

Back when the Detroit Red Wings were winning Stanley Cups left and right (late '90s and '00s), the crowds were awfully red and white pretty much everywhere.

Not so much the case nowadays, of course.

I once watched the US men's team play El Salvador in Salt Lake. If El Salvador fans didn't make up a majority of the attendance, they were damn close to it.

Also happened during a friendly vs Bosnia in St Louis. St Louis has a large Bosnian population as the mayor opened the city to Bosnian refugees regardless of ethnicity during the 90s Bosnian War. (Most were Bosnian Muslims, but there were also Croats and Serbs.) I wasn't there but my Bosnian neighbor went and he told me afterwards it was like a Bosnian homecoming.

I went to the 2019 Gold Cup Final at Soldier Field. Was really close to 50/50 US and Mexico fans.
