Good news – and bad – comes in threes. Take Soccer.
The bad news for the supporters of the wogball game just got worse. But for us true Aussie AFL supporters – with the season soon to kick off – this is really good news … and tells us what we already knew – Soccer is shit.
Good news/Bad news #1: Australia loses bid to host 2022 World Soccer Cup. To bloody Qatar!
Good news/Bad news #2: Australia loses Asian Soccer Cup Final. To bloody Iraq! Update & errection*, we lost to bloody Japan!
(*an errection is an ‘error correction’ – new word)
Good news/Bad news #3: Soccer fans are the most violent says Victoria Police Superintendent
Superintendent Rod Wilson told the Herald Sun that police were reluctant to cover Melbourne Victory games after being assaulted by fans.
Supt Wilson said local soccer fans were the worst behaved because of their violence, anti-social behaviour and lighting of flares.
[…] Supt Wilson said the problems experienced at Melbourne’s soccer games were worse than any other code.
“We are concerned about the attitude of some supporters towards police, they’re certainly showing violent tendencies,” he said.
“Police are being assaulted, police are being reluctant to work the venues because of the behaviour of some elements – and I stress some elements – of the crowd.
“There is resisting arrest, there is generally just a belligerent and poor attitude towards police, and police have been assaulted by fans and there are charges pending in those cases.”
But its the cops fault according to soccer peoples:
Supporters have also rejected Supt Wilson’s allegations, saying they were the victims of over-zealous policing … Adam Tennenini, leader of Melbourne Victory supporter group the Blue and White Brigade, accused police and security staff of being heavy-handed.
“We have seen some very unsavoury incidents on behalf of the police,” he said. “Ultimately we just want what is fair, and to simply support our club.
“Football fans are not poorly behaved but will stand up for themselves when something unjust is being perpetrated upon them.
“Fans do not want to feel like they are being monitored and watched by a firm that has anti-terrorism links.”
Yeah right, the police are causing the trouble and the club employing a security firm to watch over you (like they do in AFL too) is making you paranoid and causing more violence? Give me a break Adam.
Look I do not like to state the bloody obvious but it is pretty bloody obvious to me that there are 3 main reasons why soccer crowds are the worst behaved:
1. Boredom: In what other game in the world can you have a 0 – 0 result? There is not a lot of action out there on the pitch and when and if someone kicks a goal its like “how the hell did that happen?” and the crowd goes nuts.
2. Prissy poofy rules: In soccer you can not even touch your opponent. Thats because its played by a bunch of metrosexual Beckham types who are not real men. This lack of contact and violence on the field means the supporters have to take there frustrations out on the opposition supporters. And they do.
3. Migrants: There I have said it. Lets face it, Soccer is a game that is enjoyed by violent people from violent countries. So what else would you expect? How many times have we seen Serbs & Croatian fans belting the shit out of each other? And Greeks and Macedonians? Imagine if we let the Jews & Arabs play each other – there would be war in Melbourne. They should keep there differences back in there homelamds and not bring there arguments over here.
Stuff Soccer and bring on the AFL. There is no crowd violence at an AFL game. Unless its a Collingwood one and Collingwood loses. Then we are in big trouble.
