That incident with the game over there in Egypt probably was not a result of rabid fans but more than likely a politically based and possibly staged massacre. There is alot of instability there right now as one side is looking to reestablish a puppet regime in Egypt while another side is trying to establish a Muslim regime there and then you have other factions at work as well.
Unforchanatly many of those who died are just pawns were just pawns in a strategic game of political power.
The police there are getting alot of flak for not doing more, with the state of instability there right now I can't say I blame them for standing down, the respect for authority there right now is minimal and enforcing the law can very easily mean putting your life on the line and something tells me their paycheck probably doesn't justify that...lol
While there have been soccer tragedies in the past, I don't think this should be chalked up as another result of the "insanity" that many soccer fans have for the game.
....such a boring game? It boggles my mind. It's a good thing they don't have an NHL franchise there. How the hell would they react to a fast and hard-hitting game like hockey instead of a game that's about as exciting as watching fucking paint dry. I know. I know. Like alot of people, they may not like, or understand hockey, but can you imagine what they would do when a hockey fight breaks out?
