Fans of the America team chant from the stands as their team walks onto the pitch at Pascual Guerrero stadium in Cali March 1, 2009. Colombian soccer champions America de Cali are first to admit cocaine dollars had a hand in their sporting heyday. But after years of paying the price, they're trying to wipe the slate clean.
