How long before the Euros just start shooting the players?

Why do fans go nuts when watching pro soccer? Because they are bored out of their minds.

It's soccer...so, let them shoot.

Annika, you know that soccer fans would never shoot, because personal ownership of guns is an evil American thing, and Europeans are superior to Americans in that regard.

Sure they'll throw bottles, set fire to fields, set bombs, and the like. But GUNS?!? Icky.

Apparently, "Milan" is Italian for "Detroit"

You have to admit that watching the goalkeepers shoot it out with single shot flare guns would beat the heck out of watching a bunch of guys line up to try kicks at the end of a tied game. Think of the drama - does he fire at long range, giving the opponent a chance to close in and nail me, or does he get closer first so he can't miss? This'd be bigger than Survivor. Heck, soccer could out-draw the Super Bowl. High stakes paintball. Where's my agent?

LMAO, priceless Ken! Actually, I'm given to understand that Naples is the Detroit of Europe.

This is what happens when you go a generation without war, or the threat of war. Not too worry, they'll be roasting Moslims tied to stakes in a couple years.

eh if you don't mind me putting my 1.5 cents in. They already have shot players. I forget if it was spain or brazil (at a european game) where the goaly accidentially tipped the ball into his own goal...a fan killed him on his way home.
