All pro sports should be outlawed.

Soccer hooligans are literally the worst.
They shouldn't have to stop people from joining together to enjoy a sport, plenty of other sports hold just as large of crowds without any violent incidents. It`s something about what this sport means to people that makes them riot, something about soccer that is so near and dear to them that they feel the need to do these things.

But nobdy else cares about those sports, except maybe Canadians.

Ask people in Japan what their favorite sport is.

Seriously. America is supposedly the screwed up middle child of the world and yet soccer/"football" just doesn't catch on here ... and I can`t imagine the kind of violence that goes hand and hand with it being even remotely tolerated. In other countries ... is part OF the game. (Geez, in America we just drink flat beer, eat cold hot dogs and yell at the ump/ref.

It's mostly fine. This particular riot is about politics and the economy. Yes, I do tend to stay out of the city on match days, but in most places rabid violence only erupts three ot four times a year.

Where it is bad the teams are mostly a political, religious or ethnic proxy. It`s particularly bad in Italy, Spain, Greece and Easten Europe. Also Scotland. And the Near East. And some other places. So, yeah, actually quite a bit, come to think of it.

But it`s not as bad as it wss, in the UK.
