This huge soccer riot that erupted in Egypt is probably the most shocking thing I have ever seen on the soccer pitch, and not in a good way. After watching this, it makes me thing when fans take sports too far. Sometimes I feel like I want the game more than the players on the field, but this is just awful. The fact that people and the players were put into that kind of situation is just unimaginable. An event like that should never occur. I’m not only talking about violence, but I’m also talking about threats. That too, is taking sports too far. A prime example would be the recent death threats to San Francisco 49er KR Kyle Williams. Sometimes I think the fans just need to take a deep breath and realize this is just a game, including me.
Soccer is officially not a sport for wusses.
