At least 174 people have died in a crush at an Indonesian football match that has become one of the world's worst stadium disasters.

The stampede happened after police tear-gassed rioting supporters.

ACAB level event.

(Not that people in the third world need to be told that cops are mean, vicious thugs.)

It had gotten anarchic. They started attacking officers, they damaged cars," said Nico Afinta, police chief in East Java, adding that two police officers were among the dead.

They sound like the insurrectionist filth who support the child-raping orange turd.

I'm sorry but I just don't see the big deal about Soccer Football. it's a bunch of people running around, aimlessly kicking a ball to each other, and after a while they conduct a shoot-out', and one of the teams is then declared the winner. And they don't even sell beer in some stadiums. I guess the best part is that games are over in less time then a baseball or American Football game. Soccer Football: I just don't get it ...

#3 You're pretty close to the actual joke:

Soccer is a game where two teams kick the ball around for 90 minutes, and in the end, Germany always wins.

It sounds to me like the finale of a camel rodeo in Pakistan.

Sports fans are such tame people who you want to share the roads with after a game. /s

It's all the sport you grow up with. I have grown to appreciate it as my wife is a big fan (she grew up with it and we have been married 19 years.) The games are over in less time - maybe... But they play the whole time. 45 minutes plus whatever additional minutes per half. The clock is always running. Look at American Football, about 2 plays a minute, constant time outs (commercial and team) and other stoppages of play. I see both sides. I prefer American Football but I am also trying to quit watching it as the toll it takes on the players as it is today is unacceptable.

In truth though - Hockey is my sport. The speed of the games is what I love most I think. I have played baseball, football, soccer, hockey, basketball, tennis, golf, etc. I know 100% hockey is my favorite to play. I used to love Mountain Biking too - various X Games are still a favorite to watch. Basketball next probably but the rest are just no fun to me.
