I will never understand the whole "Woohoo, our team just (won/lost) the championship so let`s destroy the f*cking city we all live and work in!"

...and that goes for all sports, not just soccer.

Are you really ignorant enough to think that Egypt is in Europe? Or are you just allowing your irrational prejudices to over-ride your knowledge?

It isn`t about the football. It`s essentially tribal warfare. Football is just used as a means of tribal identification. It could just as easily be something else. In ancient Rome, for example, it was chariot racing.

Feel free to give examples of English football-related rioting resulting in the deaths of much more than 73 people.

Free clue: there aren`t any. You`re just making it up.

"This was not about football."

You`re right. It was about Soccer. You know, that name the original players of the sport gave to the sport? Football is this Sunday.

They call football "the passionate game" but it`s just an excuse to act like a jerk. The players have the worst sportsmanship I`ve ever seen too. It`s just an awful sport overall :P

I love nothing more than trampling human beings after my team wins. Or was this because they lost?

Seriously? Soccer? I`ve played it, I`ve even coached it when my kid was growing up, it`s a fun game but Jesus Tap-Dancing Christ people, take a deep breath and calm down already.
