Snarling football supporters pelted each other with ripped-up seats and coins at West Ham United's game with Chelsea Wednesday. The incident occurred in the very stadium where peaceful athletics fans cheered Britain's Olympic heroes four years ago.London police said Thursday they were holding seven men who wre arrested following the violence.After years of negotiation, West Ham finally moved into the 701 million pound ($855 million) stadium at the start of the season, leaving their traditional home, the Boleyn Ground, after 112 years. Former West Ham player Tony Gale is among those suggesting that a ground built with wide gangways for 80,000 athletics fans cannot safely be adapted to keep warring football fans apart.
