It’s good to see there are still places in the world where fans literally can still hold a team responsible for unacceptable play on the field. Italian soccer fans have the right idea.
A group of die hard Genoa soccer team fans held up a match by throwing fireworks on the field for their teams lackluster play. They demanded their team remove their jerseys because they weren’t worthy or wearing those colors, and the team obliged!
You know, with this recent string of terrible…terrible….horseshit Mets games, I can just see it now:
A few thousand fans sneak in flares and other fireworks that could be aimed at the field. On command the field assault begins. The stadium goes on lock down. The feds, swat teams, anti-terrorist police units, riot teams and any other available law enforcement rush in. Choppers hover above, and one-by-one they get all the culprits, none of whom are ever allowed back at Citi Field or any other stadium in the tri-state area for that matter…then the exorbitant legal fees plus legal problems…plus the tiny inconveniences that come with being on the ‘government watch list’….and this and that and this and that.
Might be worth it though.
The product on the field is out right hard to watch right now. It’s surprising how this team actually won this many games to date this year, especially after this recent stretch.
