These people are much more important than the others who died because they play soccer.

/go Germany!

100 pounds was the target. They raised over 13,000 pounds. Reading is fun and mental!

404 bad hostname? I can't quote people now? But it still puts in a screwed up version of my post.  I can't delete that either,

Fine. Whatever.

It must really suck to be Putin right now. Even when you're a murderous despot surrounded by thugs and yes-men, PR like this IS going to bite him on the ass.

I hope fans of curing deadly sexually transmitted diseases follow suit.

Soccer fans.  Who gives a fark if they raised 100K?  Still whatever status.  Shock me by donating that cash to a kid who needs a cleft pallet operation.

Don't be ridiculous.  If there's anybody in this world who desperately needs money and support, it's dead people. Especially dead people who were soccer fans who could afford to fly to the other side of the world just to watch a match.

Maybe Fark needs a "decent chap" tag, because there's nothing heroic about raising £100 to spend on flowers.

Apparently nobody noticed this bit in the article:

Rival fans set up an appeal to raise £100 for flowers and a message showing how fans can come together in tragedy, with any surplus going to charity - and already the appeal has met its target more than 130 times over.

So basically people raised over £12,000 for charity in the spirit of fan unity. But let's burn them because the article didn't make it more obvious that the money wasn't just being tossed into these two guys' coffins with a soccer ball.

I stand corrected. Clearly it takes rarely-witnessed boldness, daring, and disregard for personal safety to pass the hat. This act of valor defines the very spirit embodied in the "Hero" tag.

OK I didn't notice the hero tag. How about a "mensch" tag?

I like the mensch tag idea.  Not every admirable deed really rises to hero status but when somebody does something especially decent and admirable it deserves recognition beyond "that's nice."

Cleft palate.  Now you'll be able to sleep better tonight.

The charities most likely to receive any of the extra money raised are probably the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation (Cancer research charity set up by one of Newcastle and England's greatest football managers) and the Sir Bobby Robson unit (which treats cancer sufferers in North East England)

They were Newcastle Magpie football fans, not players.
