LOL.
FIFA officials have nothing else to be worried about but the fragile sensibilities of effeminate sissies?

Oh noes. Some Mexicans hurt someone’s feelings.

Strip them of their third-world win against some other third-world nation, please because their fans were bad, bad, non-PC folks.

Another reason to hate soccer.

Those of us who do not care for soccer have now been labeled "HATERS"

The line, it is drawn,
The curse, it is cast.

I may be mistaken, but I’ve heard that soccer teams (both club teams and national teams) may be held responsible for the conduct of their fans. It’s a rule that is meant to stop hooliganism, etc.

I believe in Soccer they actually sanction the team for the misconduct of their fans, which I always found a bit bizarre since a crafty opponent could easily "sabotage" a rival by having some of their fans pose as fans of the other team and misbehaving.

A friend of mine said he was at a bar in Mexico, and he refused to buy a drink for a B-girl. She asked him if he was a “maricon”. He thought she had asked him if he was an American, and he replied “yes”.

If the Mexican fans would show as much passion for cleaning up their country as they do for soccer then one day North America will be a true economic powerhouse. Blah, who am I kidding the folks from that sewer to the south of us will never get it together. Our two nations end up merged and we go down the tubes leaving Canada the lone power on the continent.

Hey Fifa, I’d rather you investigate what happened to all the street kids missing from where the World Cup is being held.

Reminds me of forty eight years ago when some of my Military friends went to Juarez for the first time.
They just wanted to tour the town so a Taxi driver asked if they wanted a ride to “see nice girls-s”.
‘Not now.” they said.
The Taxi driver then said...”You que-e-er-sss you don’ like girls you quee-er-sss!”

Oh good grief! I have been to soccer matches in Latin America for 23 years, and the majority of their chants have always been X-rated and make references to ‘gays’ as well as other sexual odds and ends.

Jeepers, get a grip. What do you plan to do when some blogger writes something you don’t like about the NFL? Stop watching football?

I was actually referring to another thread on FR that DID label anti-soccer folks as “Haters”. Sorry...can’t find it now, so you will just have to believe me.

I’m not worked up at all. I just like to quote Bob Dylan.

And I probably should have included a /s tag. But I didn’t. my bad.

Ah, not a Dylan fan myself. I prefer the wisdom of Bobby Bare in such situations:

I prefer your condemnation to your suckin' sympathy,
Baby good for nuthin' is good enough for me.

Who exactly are they investigating in the name of? Cameroon is one of the most anti-sodomite countries in the world so I doubt they have homosexual players. Just Mexico horsing around.

VILNIUS, Lithuania -- Police have launched a formal investigation into the brandishing of a racist banner by home fans during Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifier against France, the Lithuanian Football Federation said Monday.

"The police have started an investigation to find out who is responsible for the incident," said Vaidotas Rastenis, the federation's deputy spokesman. "The federation in turn is to release a statement for the fans related to the incident," he added.

At Saturday's match in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas, home fans displayed a large banner showing an outline map of Africa in the blue, white and red colours of France's national flag, emblazoned with the words: "Welcome to Europe".

The banner appeared to be aimed at France's black players, who make up the majority of the team.

That one cost the Lithuanian Soccer Federation 15,000 Swiss francs.

For ‘brandishing’ (like a weapon) a racist banner that says...”Welcome to Europe.”!

I thought it was quite creative. But there is a problem, and they had to crack down on it. I mean, throwing bananas at black players is a little over the top.
