I fear this is just the beginning.

Soccer fan syndrome is spreading to Russia. They may have lost the game, but at least they won the race for the first major soccer-related riot.

The Irish did it, but they were too stupid to fly out to South Korea, so they torched their own cars instead.

EGGD raises a good point. At least the English tend to be cleverer than the Irish and trash Germany or France. The Irish just get drunk and go after any cars they can find, and if its their own BMW 7-series, so be it.

Perfect. Irish Soccer Fan can't make it to South Korea, so to quell their need for violence and destruction they tear up their own stuff. Nice. Actually it beats Soccer Fan tearing up someone else's country, but this still is stupid. And people wonder where I get my negative views on Soccer.....

Nobody in America can be more Soccer like than Raider Fan. But the cat of the matter is, even Raider Fan doesn't pillage after a loss, much less a win! And hey, let's not forget about those snoball chuckin' Jim Kelly having to do public "Don't Rock The Boat" ads early 90's Buffalo fan.

I dunno those laker fans when the win the NBA championship have their points too.

How many police cars did the team end up buying as replacements, 12-13?

L-188. I forgot about Laker Fan, only because I had been on them a couple of weeks ago. Like Jim Rome summarises. The Lakers will 3peat, and then Laker fan will 3peat in emulating Soccer Fan and rioting when the Lakers win. Is their anything more ridiculous than rioting over a sports game...especially if your "team" wins the Championship?

Like I said

If the LAPD is smart they will have their officers in their oldest POC patrol cars. That way when the rioters burn them they will get new ones to replace them courtesy of Shaq and Kobe.

New cars, not on the taxpayers nickel......No I doubt the city council of LA is that intelligent.

At least the England fans have behaved impeccably so far in Japan/Korea. The russian fans seem to have lost it a bit, their country wasn't exactly going to win the world cup, so why the hysteria? Anyway, as long as England fans don't get into trouble, then who cares?

Amazingly enough, thus far the English fans have behaved impeccably. It may be because the tournament is so far away, so your average knuckle-dragger can't afford it. It may also be the government's measures taken to prevent known troublemakers travelling. It may even be that the Japanese welcome (which by all accounts has been astonishing) has nullified any potential problem. I've even seen English fans helping to tidy up the streets the morning after the Argentina game!

Whatever the reason, long may it continue. We may yet just be starting to turn the corner.

Thats because most of them weren't allowed to leave the country, and are under close watch from the Bobby's.

Exactly! Keep the ass-hole troublemakers behind and let the real fans enjoy themselves.

I don't have a problem with them leaving the country. It's letting them back in afterwards that I object to! Big grin

Sadly, some Russian soccer sickos have Union Jacks, in 'honour' of the inventors of football trouble.
(Not true, it's long been worse in South America, the English got their publicity from exporting it to Europe).
Another factor in the good behaviour so far could be that Japan is such a different society to Europe, if a thug gets arrested in Europe he can be fairly confident he'll soon be deported.
But what would happen in Japan? There is no precedent, how does their justice system work?
It's a low crime nation as well.

Here in Strasbourg, Alsace, France, no need to loose a FOOTBALL game to burn cars. They burn anyway all the year long (that's true), but especially on new year's eve.  Sad  Sad

Keep the menaces locked up! This is an absolute disgrace. Why do these 'nutters' have to ruin it for everyone else?? I feel sorry for the real fans- they get blamed for something they didn't do.

What should happen is:

1) Get the water canons out
2) Use rubber bullets
3) Give really tough sentences to those who like to cause the violence

Best regards

Monarch  Smile

PS. I think we should praise all the other fans for behaving well especially the English!  Big thumbs up

While the consensus was that English soccer fan would be next in line to riot, they disappoint as China fan comes through. Soccer fan rioting? Just a stereotype...
