I was about to agree except that futbol/soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Sure there’s the occasional hit but nothing like rugby or American football.

Yeah, it's just the fans who are violent. Tongue

What’s the old joke about I went to a boxing match and a hockey game broke out in the stands?

Fans is short for fanatics Gasp

The problem is that it is stereotyping like this that leads to travesties like Hillsborough. Dodgy

Bill Maher dealt with this some years ago.

I like Bill Maher on many topics but I don't see this supporting anything other than the observation that some sports fans are fanatical.

Some.

Not all.

When you say "all" you stereotype.

And when one ignores one's own affiliations when doing so, as I suspect the OP has, one veers into hypocrisy.
