quote:

Italy's first football death came in 1979 during the Roma-Lazio derby, a Lazio fan accidentally killed by a Roma fan who thought a naval distress rocket was a regular flare.


i shouldn't laugh but

quote:

The politics of the terraces often lack logic, praising ethnic cleansers and paramilitary murderers, the Palestinians, the Irish and the Iraqis -- anyone they see as oppressed by a larger power. The specifics of the battles don't matter as much as the ethos.


wow sounds like a certain club in scotland as well

overall great and even more eye opening piece

He's got a really great piece on Messi that is definitely worth the read as well.
