There’s numerous reasons that the USA doesn’t embrace what the rest of the world calls ‘football’, and these violent mutant fans are one of the biggest.
If the USA were ever to become a serious contender in World Cup/FIFA/Association Football (or however it is known), chances are that someday the United States’ turn would come around to host a championship event. That would mean that we’d have to allow hundreds of thousands of football fans from all over the planet to visit the USA, and that just isnt going to happen.
There is no goddamned way we’re about to let thousands of potato-headed Slavic mutant vandals from Russia come here and march drunkenly through the streets. That goes likewise for Portuguese and Latvians and Yemenis and Ecuadoreans and Khazakhis and Bulgarians and so on. The bastards would never ever leave once they got here. We’d host one world soccer tournament and instantly be sorry that we agreed to it.
Uh, but we will allow them to protest Bush and Republicans doing the same thing; OR even worse, allow them to sit in our streets like Occupy and create a rat infested, drug riddled, crime camp like they did here in DC.
Just to note, we hosted 1994 World Cup.
This whole incident goes back to the historically poor treatment that Russians have given to the Poles. The list is too long to go over.
Are you talking about the violence after a World Series, NBA championship, Super Bowl...? Just asking...!
