Violence is always lurking when Mexico and the U.S. play each other and Saturday night's Gold Cup final was no different. The skirmishes weren't limited to just the players, though, and they didn't stop when the final whistle blew.

During Mexico's celebration after the match, the media battles began, with cameramen jockeying for position to get the best shots. While chasing the players as they ran around with the trophy, a TV cameraman mercilessly knocked a peer with a piddly little still camera out of his way. It definitely deserved a booking, unfortunately the referee didn't see it. Nor did he have authority over cameramen.
