Fire would make the game more interesting...

Apparently, Fenerbahçe  is the Philadelphia of Europa League.

I'm excited for when they send in mortars and rockets to blow up their own team.

BTW, remember this stuff whenever people whine about how violent American fans are.

Next solution: Ban the team, I am sure the fans can just firebomb the local supermarket or whatever to get their kicks so they won't really miss it.

I think this equates more to the people who inflate about 4 beachballs during outdoor games/concerts, bring giant signs irrelevant to what they're watching and when all else fails throw a shoe. They want to be a spectacle themselves and could care less what they're watching. A true "fan" doesn't negatively impact their own team.

who does that?  Even soccer fans know that the crazies in Europe take their soccer way more seriously than we Yanks take any of our sports.

Not that I totally condone it, but that's pretty awesome.

Not as awesome as this though.

Depends on what half of Istanbul we're talking about; half is European, the other half Asian.  The city straddles the Bosphorus, which divides Europe and Asia.

That said, UEFA should have clued you into it being a European football issue.

Fenerbahce. Yeah, the Istanbul triumvirate. Sounds about right. Them, Besiktas and Galatasaray.

FUN FACT: There is a Fenerbahce supporter group called "Kill For You". They might have been the ones that did this.

OK, that's pretty good right there.

Some honourable Brit commented here during the Super Bowl that we Americans were quite professional about our sports because the fans didn't tear down the Super Dome when the lights went out and really just kind of sat around drinking their beer waiting for it to start again.

I know we have some violence in sports but it usually involves boozed up morons and is comparatively rare. My old boss used to live on the same line that served Wembley and he would actively avoid it on football days.

I was just about to say that, right on the Asian shore of the Sea of Mamara.

This reminds me of D. W. Brogan:  For Americans war is almost all of the time a nuisance, and military skill is a luxury like Mah-Jongg. But when the issue is brought home to them, war becomes as important, for the necessary period, as business or sport. And it is hard to decide which is likely to be the more ominous for the Axis -- an American decision that this is sport, or that it is business.

Israel reports to UEFA even though it's not in Europe. It doesn't matter where it's geographically located.

fark FIFA!

The three most corrupt sports organizations in the world are as follows:

1. IOC
2. FIFA
3. NCAA

I'd actually flip the IOC and FIFA on your list. FIFA has a lot more bribery going on while the IOC is really just guilty of nepotism and sucking up to themselves. Anyway, I doubt the IOC would actually do something insane like put a Summer Games in Qutar like FIFA did with the World Cup, even if paid off.

/I believe I read somewhere that the IOC actually rejected a Middle East city has a host for the 2020 games due in part to them wanting to hold the Games in October

They put the games in Sochi.  What percentage of the venues are fronts for the Russian mob?

ArkPanda:

Probably 2/3rd of the buildings. But I'd chalk that up to them exceeding the cost estimates of next year's games by 500%, making them more expensive than Beijing's games. If there's bribery going on, the IOC learned very well how to hide it after the Salt Lake City investigation.

Except it does matter. Israel was part of AFC before it asked to move to UEFA. All other UEFA countries are located in Europe.

Ah yes, Lech Poznan. Its quite a joy when 5000 of them show up to your stadium.

Hell, they have their own dance named after them - "The Poznan"

They put Olympic preparation in the hands of Vladimir Putin. What'd they think was going to happen?

Why is this anyones business but the Turks?
 
2013-03-01 06:48:17 AM
The only surprise here is that the UEFA board actually got its snouts out of the trough long enough to ban home supporters. No one wants to talk about the Italiand and Turkish problem.
