Hearing that a fan from Napoli was shot last night and risks dying because a bunch of Roman thugs were taking advantage of a situation to cause mayhem is absolutely despicable and disgusting. What makes it worse is once the Napoli fans found out about the incident they were ready to destroy everything in sight until the leader of the hooligans (the son of a Camorirsta btw) said the game can go on, in “silence”…. except for the national anthem cuz you know they have to whistle during it to make some “statement”
This is the one thing I absolutely despise about football, the hooligans.
2 years ago I went to see Napoli and Juventus play in Rome and I was sitting in the Juve section and all I was hearing was hate-filled remarks calling Napoli fans animals and saying we are not even Italian, I couldn’t even cheer when my team scored out of fear of what they might do once they saw I was in their section. And the Napoli fans were even worse. They were whistling at our national anthem (I think that’s horrible to do even in an international match but to do it during own anthem is just ridiculous) and throwing flares and those little poppers into the stadium and running INTO THE STADIUM and GRABBING THE PLAYERS after we won.
And then THIS happens, and the Napoli hooligans are looking to this hooligan leader as a saint for allowing the game to continue. He should not be venerated, he should be ashamed for threatening to destroy the place if they didn’t get answers.
I hate being associated with these people. I hate that I can never go to a game again because I fear for my safety. and I hate that in this day and age this still happens.
