They decapitated a ref after he killed a guy, isn't that what happened another time? I think it's well established they are a little beyond the pale about soccer

Believe it or not, there are other countries where they take their high school and college sports so seriously that the players won't even be charged for acts of brutality, like rape, and gang rape.

You said rape twice.  Did you vote for a Republican or something?

Vote Republican?
That would never ever happen again.

But it's a crime that's so not nice, I had to say it twice.

Sorry. I just have a problem with trained circus animals receiving deferential treatment over human beings.

Every country does this in one form or another.  It's one of the great things about humanity that makes me want to bring about the Third Impact.

"Think about what happen in Brazil. Decades ago it decided to become the best in the world. Scouts scoured each and every village to find the most talented kids. It did not matter if they were rich or poor, black, brown, or white, lived in a village or a big city, had powerful parents or were orphans. If they were good, they were supported, mentored, tracked and trained. And eventually, the country won. Time and again ... Until there was no doubt they were the best. Brazil beat the world five times. The tragedy is that Brazil chose to do this in soccer....Meanwhile, South Korea chose to do exactly the same thing ... in math and science. Very different outcomes."

Each country decides what's important to them. Obviously for Brazil, it's soccer and pretty much nothing else (ok, maybe sex and... definitely sex).
