There's always a reason.

Put two Brazilian people anywhere and a fight is likely to break out. It's just statistics.

Correct. There was a lot riding on this game. A win for Paranaense would get them into the Copa Libertadores. A loss for Vasco da Gama would mean relegation. Paranaense scored in the 6th minute; the rioting started in the 17th minute.

The match was eventually resumed after a delay of one hour, ten minutes; Paranaense won 5-1.

Look at that stadium! All terracing, no lines of stewards between the home and away support. It's like something out of the past.

Still more civil than Raiders fans.

Soccer fans riot because the sport is too boring.

Hockey fans don't riot at hockey games. That's because blood is spilled on the ice.

But Soccer? YAWN. The emotions build up with no release. Then they roll around like children faking injury for a sweetie? I'd riot too.

There were at least two instances of "Let's get 'em!!! Whoops! Run away!!!" during that riot.

Ice hockey fans don't riot because the teams are not used as a cover for centuries of socio-economic resentment and score settling. Take the Glasgow derby between Rangers and Celtic. It's not Blue vs Green, it's protestant locals vs catholic immigrants fermented over centuries of economic hardship. The football games is just the excuse.

But you don't want to hear that, you just want to wave your dick and try and feel superior to the most popular game on the planet.

Every Toronto-Montreal game has undertones of the ethnic cleansing of Lower Canada undertaken in the 18th century.  They don't riot about it; they let the players do that.   But you don't want to hear about that because you're ignorant to how deep history can go in the New World.

As for this game?  Two teams from different states, one scrapping for survival, one for continental play; one scored first and the other's fans got hurt backsides.  That's it and that's all.  You can't put history on it because it isn't there.  This wasn't a Palmeiras-Corinthians match, which does have historic racial and socioeconomic implications.

Also the Irish and English have Rugby, which doesn't induce riots.

When the riot cops show up, the one fires the shotgun and then stands there 10 feet from where people are just stomping on some guys ribcage and kicking him in the head while he's on the ground and doesn't do anything to stop them.

Put two Brazilian people anywhere and a fight is likely to break out. It's just statistics.


Well, to be fair, two brazilion is a lot of people for such a small space.

Most sporting events are safe.  The news only focuses on times when fans go crazy and commit violent acts.  You never hear stories about the times when fans don't riot or kill/maim/injure rival fans, innocent bystanders, or police officers.
Does this shiat happen?  Yes.
Does it happen at every sporting event held around the world?  No.

Hey, the rioters need some warm ups to get ready for the World Cup too.
 
2013-12-09 09:44:47 AM
The World Cup and Olympics will sure be fun.

And as an interesting counterexample...Canadiens games are among the very few instances (along with Vancouver's loss to Boston) of actual, honest-to-Dieu hockey riots.   (Seriously, Montreal games--especially when they get near to winning the Stanley Cup--have been probably the most frequent offenders re causing hockey riots.)

In fact, Montreal/Boston games are actually the largest source of hockey riots, stemming from a 1955 game between Montreal and Boston where Canadien Maurice Richard was suspended for breaking a hockey stick over the head of a Bruins player in what was widely seen as a massive case of C'EST RACISTE among French-Canadians (because the NHL was largely run by Anglophone Canadians at the time).

In fact, the Richard Riot (as the 1955 incident has come to be known) is thought to be one of the few sports riots that not only was definitively tied to political sentiment but actually may have sparked an uprising by the underclass (other examples being the Nika Riots of AD 532); many researchers now think the Richard Riot may have been an inspiration for or a predecessor of Quebecois sovereignity movements in the 60s onward, including public riots.
