Soccer Action: It's FANtastic

as much as racism is a problem in soccer, UEFA has been doing a good job as of late. Before it was up to the independent FA's to take care of it, and it seemed as if only the English FA did anything about racism. Now UEFA has taken over, and by reading the article, Croatia could be in some big doo-doo if they don't straighten out their act.

CROATIA could be kicked out of Euro 2008 if fans abuse England?s black players tomorrow.

Whats the point of that it makes no sense other then to show like the MLS stadiums are empty over there too. Its illogical and I dont get why they would do it.

Why? Because they are racists trying to send a racist message, that's why. It has nothing to do with how full the stadium might be.

Tank, they weren't showing that the stadium was empty, the fans were making the shape of a swastika.

"FOOTBALL chiefs fear trouble after 200 Croatian supporters formed a human swastika at a friendly in Italy."

I counted.. it was 65 people.

The whole swastica thing... I don't get it. its like the Confederate Battle Flag around the south... people have taken somethign that doesn't mean what they think it means to become simply "I don't like black people."

I guess there is no making sense of ignorant rednecks.

I'm not sure what the solution is. If you go running in to break it up, all you do is build their resentment, till it boils over in something worse. But one surely can't tollerate hate and ignorance in the stands, on the field, in life in general.

Maybe we need to have Stephen Jackson go to games with his posse to clean up any racists.

I, for one, think the opposite of a hate crime shouldnt be a crime at all. If you want to express your racism, someone of that race can now maime or kill you with no repercussions.

That would solve it.

Then they were successful. Picture is in a paper and being spread around the web now.
