The French and Croatians had a little riot on the streets of Dublin before during and after the match

Oh *checks notes* party. They had a party on the streets of Dublin. That Irish influence on people :)

Why are they rioting? They won?

They should have remembered to grease the light poles.

submitter, sports riots in America are pitiful compared to what they have in Europe, FYI.  Your joke falls flat and you need to stop buying into American exceptionalism.

At least you tried.

I thought that was a Canadian thing.

Yeah, I don't recall sports riots getting to the point teams are banned.  Worst we've had was an occasional team forfeited a game, and it has been years since that happened.

Again, proving they are the master race by destroying sh*t because they are happy.

It's not like they concurred Germany.
 
2018-07-16 08:17:17 AM  
It's not a party until something gets broken

East Lansing has to prepare for riots anytime Sparty does anything in sports ball. Win or lose.

Meanwhile Russian protests are more presentable, distinguished afairs.  How many soldiers does it take to arrest an 11 year old anyway?

And anyone who owns a resort in Michigan has to prepare for their hotel to get ruined whenever Wolverines stay there.

Did we Americans riot after we won the World Cup?

I agree

Ahhh, sportsball victories. Always a good excuse for freestyle shopping and random arson.

I'm a lifetime Michigan fan, and as such, I encourage you to STFU. Little brother grew up and started working out, and now big brother doesn't know wtf to do about it.

And people wonder why we Brits want to dissociate ourselves from these frog-eating garlic-munching thugs.

Oh, no!  Tell me we didn't surrender --- to the  RUSSIANS!

FTFA: In the southeast city of Annecy, police reported a 50-year-old man died after breaking his neck when he jumped into a shallow canal in celebration of the French victory. And in the small town of Saint-Felix in northern France, a man in his thirties died after crashing his car into a tree while celebrating after the match ended.

So... two incidents that could happen on any night where daft people celebrate in non-safe ways. In the entire nation.

And this is what the Express calls "news"?

Why, is Macron a Russian asset, too?

So glad you posted that image here, where we are politically sensible. On a right wing site Trump would have seen this and thought "Hey what a good idea! Now why didn't I think of that?"
