    I remember two, but I can only find articles on one. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, you get 100,000 people in close-quarters and add alcohol to the mix bad things happen. I've been saying for years alcohol needs go away at sporting events.

    Ok, not debating whether a few, maybe more than a few fans grow "beer muscles" but come on, 70 deaths, no comparison.

    'the beautiful game' is a term for UKs soccer pyramid

    NFL fans would totally be schooled by soccer thugs.

    And their fans are far more passionate. Just the way it goes. They take it far too serious.
