Saturday, February 16, 2008, thanks to my friend Fanto, I went to see a match at San Siro unimportant among my favorite team, Inter and Livorno.
A game decidedly unappetizing, but that ended with the victory of Inter ... really just a game lasting 18 minutes to the second advantage of Inter. After only possession and lack of spectacle.
But the show gave the fans ... the ones next to me. I was sitting in the grandstand, the "red". I went only once in my life at the San Siro, in the year when he began the Dutch duo Jonk-Inter Bergkamp of non-wonders. Is it possible that the fans are not able to have a modicum of objectivity about what is happening in the field? It is possible that people have all this anger inside him ready to burst like a bomb?
Mechanics, engineers, teachers, construction workers ... does not differentiate the economic class, social, professional, from which derives the fan in the stadium ... all are transformed into angry men who just want to scream profanities, insults to a figure identified nell'arbitro or a player opponent. Why is this?
What happens in Italy in the stadiums?
Stewards ... figure that should ensure a sort of stadium security ... my boys are pathetic. Not so much people, poor things that has nothing to do, but the figure that must impersonate. You can see the yellow overalls, which distinguish them, in the stadium, in all areas, except in the corners of the fans. As if the problem was in the stands central, and not in the curves.
Son Inter, but I must admit that enter the stadium restless. It seems to get in a cage, in which there are more criminals and delinquents that good people. Where ignorance football is the host, and where everyone just wants to find a pretext to scream and, if possible, fight. The speaker announced for the entire second half, which for security measures, the opposing fans at the end of the race, would have to remain within its sector, waiting for the "stock" of the police. A game without emotions and without grounds, even trivial, friction ... but is it possible?
What are you fans? We aggregate like animals in the herd ... because one by one you are just small, useless, miserable and afraid. Football was a sport, once beautiful, now between you and those who make a sport of a mere business, football has lost, and lost its charm. Television broadcasts instead are simply piling on (your fans).
Then one of you dies ... and rise ye with a revolution unfounded, groundless. Bring back the spirit of football and leave home hatred. It is a nice game, not turn it into battle. You want war ... there are already many in the world ... if you are so brave go where there is need, or you have too much fear because then there really would risk something?
Let the football as it was played ..., not spoken, not ruined, but loved.
Fans ... that morons.
