Alright, who kicked Princess Anne!
2003-01-13 01:58:14 PM  
I'd kick it.

"Wilkins said the horse was retreating when Everest launched a kung-fu-style kick from behind"

Everybody was kung foo fighting, those cats were fast as lightning.
There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung,
He said here comes the big boss, lets get it on
We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand,
The sudden motion made me skip now we're into a brand knew trip .

Huffy Hooligan Highkicks Harassed Horse.
2003-01-13 02:00:38 PM  
That's wasn't very nice. I think the horse should be given a chance to kick him back, even stevens.

Defense lawyer Simon Stirling said Everest had supported Millwall since the age of 3 but this was his first offense relating to soccer hooliganism.

And that's a defence? You Brits seem to have cameras all over the place now. Anyway, isn't it getting so that soccer hooliganism isn't news anymore? Isn't it just part of the game? Sort of like "Fans drink beer at Browns game - Boo other team".

First things first: where's your shiatter? I've got a turtlehead poking out.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

How is 8 years of no soccer a penalty? I'd love to go 8 years without soccer accidentally appearing on my TV.

How does a boring ass game like soccer (haha - I called it soccer) get you people so fired up? That game should calm people into a coma. It's third on the list of boring sports, right behind Fishing and Frisbee Football.
2003-01-13 02:15:08 PM  
everytime i try to watch soccer it's just so boring, as is all sports, but that's just me
2003-01-13 02:17:48 PM  
There are going to be a lot of empty stadiums at English soccer games if they keep putting the hooligans in jail for 5 years!!!

In England, do you actually have to serve the 5 full years?

Prof_frink, a billion people around the world with argue with your list. And, if it is such a "boring ass game", why are you reading AND posting on this item? What ever else you are doing must be even more "boring ass".
2003-01-13 02:20:07 PM  
Woohooo!!! A soccer flame war!!! Man, its been days since we had one of those.

I'm disgusted.

I'm gonna find the nearest horse and kick it in the ass.
2003-01-13 02:29:09 PM  
I hate it when I get kicked in the England. Talk about painful! That poor horse. I imagine its England is even more sensitive than a human's.

Is soccer like hockey in that it can't be appreciated on television until you see it live enough times? Maybe hockey's not like that for everyone. Was for me though.
2003-01-13 02:41:44 PM  
LawTalkingGuy I don't know if Pittsburgh is the same as Chicago, but, it was pretty much the same for me with hockey. Although, the old Stadium with Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita didn't hurt much. :D

And, soccer is a lot different live than on tv. Even without hooligans!!!
2003-01-13 02:41:50 PM  
Dcho You had me laughing my ass off.

I just find the picture of a man kung-fu kicking a horse really hilarious. He better hope he doesn't have to share a cell with a PETA member.
2003-01-13 02:45:18 PM  
Zip Beep.

he probably wont serve the full 5 years as he is only a criminal. they have more human rights than victims now in the UK.
2003-01-13 02:45:41 PM  
ZipBeep I will say this about the Blackhawks: Their EASports NHL '92 team, featuring Jeremy Roenick, was the best video hockey team ever. (Props to "Swingers")

Robbie Keane with a hat trick!!
2003-01-13 02:54:09 PM  
Soccer doesn't kill horses....people kill horses. Or something.

/i got nothin'
2003-01-13 02:59:30 PM  
Damn, that's more than they usually give for murder...

And now who's deleted the next post?!

Just a reminder. If you call soccer football, you must call jailed 'gaoled' and autumn 'fall'. If it was good enough for Bill Shakespeare, it's good enough for you.
2003-01-13 03:26:23 PM  
If the admins have any sense of humor at all, this will be the next article posted.
2003-01-13 03:26:24 PM  
Hey, i have Keane on my fantasy team...thats all.

My team is Liverpool...

But man are they sucking this year!

Why oh why has Houllier dropped Dudek?!
2003-01-13 03:27:54 PM  
Hey!! The duplicate post disappeared. Is Fark now censoring us? Is this part of Clinton's vast left wing conspiracy? Or are we just lucky?
2003-01-13 03:28:00 PM  
I don't understand what the big deal is about soccer anyways. Kinda sucks.
2003-01-13 03:28:03 PM  
hey im seeing double...four articles about a guy kicking a horse.
2003-01-13 03:29:53 PM  
Good thing he didn't try to eat any friends. Then he'd REALLY be in trouble. If he lived in Russia. Heh, heh.
2003-01-13 03:34:54 PM  
What is this mysterious "Eng Land" I hear you speak of?
2003-01-13 03:36:03 PM

Why did the mods delete the other
story about the hooligan?
2003-01-13 03:50:16 PM  
because it tasted like chicken
2003-01-13 03:54:26 PM  
Uh he can just go see soccer played in Italy. Big deal. But kicking a horse isn't cool.
2003-01-13 04:00:20 PM  
I am currently at WORK.

Yes, that is only slightly less boring then soccer.

Just because a billion people like something doesn't make it cool. It just means the sheep are doing what they are expected to do - baaaah.

"Think for yourself, don't follow authority"

soccer sucks

Soccer is for guys who aren't secure enough in their manhood to watch soap operas. Because thats basically all they are. Women cry at the soaps, men act like short dicked retartds at soccer games. I'm secure in my manhood, but I don't like soaps. I like the women who watch them.

Is a kick in the England especially painful to horses?
2003-01-13 04:57:49 PM  
Hmmm, maybe I should check to see if getting my arse beat in a soccer riot is covered by my HMO.

direct hit!

From Aticle: "You have bought shame on your family and on the club you purport to support.It is difficult to imagine a worse example of behavior by a man in his mid-50s than that you displayed on that particular evening."

I can think of at least one thing he could have done to that horse that would have brought more shame than kicking it.
2003-01-13 05:27:52 PM  
Vominator, what is that picture?
2003-01-13 05:49:17 PM  
Soccer's so stupid.

It's not even a sport. It's a reason to riot. It's a way to die prematurely.

Way to go, soccer, you've done it again.
