Angry Sporting Fans Light Section of Soccer Stadium on Fire After Loss (Video)
Sometimes when a team loses a tough game, fans just react. Whether you’re watching the game on TV and you break something in your house or you get into a fight outside the stadium, sometimes rash decisions can come with serious consequences. It’s best to try to control your temper after something unfortunate happens to your team and tell yourself, “it’s only a game.”
As you all know, soccer fans can be some of the most dramatic in the world when it comes to supporting their teams. Whether it’s bringing a dead body to a game, trying to run a ref over, or punching a player in the face, their behavior is often regrettable. That’s why we want to take this time to commend the group of Sporting fans who reacted rationally after Sporting lost 1-0 to Benfica over the weekend. All they did was set their section of Benfica’s stadium on fire. Here is a video of the blaze that Dirty Tackle passed along:
Obviously these fans took a deep breath and realized lighting the entire stadium on fire would not be fair. That’s why they focused their attention on their own section, since it was their team that played so poorly and couldn’t score a goal. I think it’s safe to say we’ve all learned a valuable lesson here.
