See, This is What's Wrong with Soccer

I understand enthusiasm, but:

SAO PAULO (AP) — A Brazilian soccer fan was killed when he was struck in the head by a toilet bowl hurled from stadium stands as supporters of rival clubs clashed in the northeastern World Cup host city of Recife, police said.

Also this past weekend, authorities detained more than 40 people because of fan fighting outside the stadium...
Mock if you like but you'll never find this kind of behavior at the belt-sander races.
