So is this what they mean about soccer being such a passionate game? We have rowdy NFL fans who may bite an ear here and there or knock someone unconscious from time to time but have you ever heard of an NFL ref or player being decapitated or butchered by angry fans or each other? Back in 1985 British hooligans caused a mass stampede during a European Cup final between Juventus (Italy) and Liverpool, which resulted in the deaths of 39 Italian fans. Hmmmm. Never heard of that happening at Lambeau Field, Giant Stadium, Soldier Field, or the Meadowlands during a football game. Soccer may be the world’s most popular sport but I’m glad it takes a back seat to our major sports here. Gees, and the rest of the world thinks we’re barbarians?

In the NFL the players keep the game on the field and save the killing for off the field.
