Violence in Sports: When is a game not a game?
From the Street Reporter: Riots after sports events are in the news more and more these days. In your opinion, what is causing this violence? Joey G.: My friends and I go to football games all the time. When a team wins a big game, the fans want to be crazy and have a good time. That's normal. There just should be more police. Ellen: I don't go to soccer matches anymore. I worry about alcohol at the games. That's the problem. When people drink, they do stupid things. Julie: The troublemakers aren't real fans. They just want to be in a big crowd and act crazy. They shouldn't allow those people to go to the games. Herman: Fans get angry if their team loses-especially if it's a big game. They should keep the two groups of fans apart. That's the cause of the problem.
Reasons violence in football rises: If seats are oversold, problems can start very easily. Many fans drink a lot at games, thus, they are more likely to do abnormal things. Crowds make people lose their sense of personal responsibility, they just follow the crowd, which is a "mob mentality." Fans start fights over referee’s decision. Players start fighting on the pitch.
Ways to prevent violence in football: Making sure that an area is not overcrowded is very important. Police help keep things under control making sure that no dangerous objects or drunk people get into the stadium. Officials should think and prepare games as "big parties.“ Controlling the problem with cameras in all the stadiums. Players must set a good example by avoiding violence on the pitch. Fans should understand football is a sport.
Football is a sport. It's not a matter of life or death. We need to realise that people have the right to support whichever team they prefer, and that really there's nothing to fight about.
