Ah yes, just another fine evening at the stadium.

Violence at Euro "socca" matches has become so routine that no one reasonably expects anything fact police forces plan and gear up for these occasions...

Then, of course, rather than insightful post-game analysis we get media blame-game analysis.

There's no better or more subtle example of how euro-socca violence has ingrained itself into the Euro consciousness than this article. Notice how blithely it transitions from reporting on the violence to reporting the final scores. Outrageous. A classic example of the old line "Other that that bit of unpleasantness regarding your husband, how did you like the parade, Mrs. Kennedy?"
