    Apparently they take soccer seriously.
    It would never occur to me to quarter someone. I'm not sure I would have the slightest idea how to do it. That must have been a helluva knife he had.

    Savages.

    THIS is a proper hockey fight:

    I'm not a hockey fan, but you make my point, which is that fights in hockey are about as lethal as pro-wrestling bouts (in fact, the WWF risks greater injury with the inclusion of chair hits). OTOH, soccer fans routinely kick the crap out of each other, and deaths in the stands are not unheard of. The Wikipedia article on football hooligans cites 17 murders or attempted murders in the sport. You'd have a hard time finding an American sport that has as much violence among fans.
