April 21 - Following Jeff Gordon winning the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway, tying the late Dale Earnhardt with 76 wins, a handful of Earnhardt fans threw full beverage cans at Gordon's car as he celebrated the victory and paid tribute to Earnhardt. A week later at the Aaron's 499 on April 29 at Talladega Superspeedway, a track where Earnhardt and particularly his son Dale Earnhardt, Jr. have a strong following and a track that had a history of fans throwing debris at Gordon (see 2004 above), Gordon won the race again, this time surpassing Earnhardt, Sr. on the all-time wins list. A much larger number of fans threw beverage cans and other debris on the track and at Gordon's car following his victory. Fourteen fans were arrested and banned for life from buying tickets from the speedway

May 23 - During an AHL playoff game, Kip Brennan of the Hershey Bears was attacked by a Manchester Monarchs fan in the penalty box area. Brennan ripped the fan's shirt during the fight and was suspended by the league for the remainder of the playoffs. The fan was later ejected from the arena

May 28 - NBA Utah Jazz fans gave way to frustration in the fourth quarter of Game 4 of the 2007 Western Conference Finals in Salt Lake City - with most of it aimed at San Antonio Spurs forward Manu Ginóbili and his flair for drawing fouls - in an ugly-but-effective overall team performance in which the Spurs made more free throws than field goals. Contributing to that discrepancy were four technical fouls called against Utah in the fourth. The subsequent ejections of Utah head coach Jerry Sloan and Jazz guard Derek Fisher had a charged-up EnergySolutions Arena crowd raining debris onto the court in protest. After the Spurs won the game 91-79, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich rushed his team into the locker room instead of submitting to post-game interviews.\

July 24 - During a minor league A-level baseball game, pitcher Julio Castillo of the Peoria Chiefs was arrested and charged for throwing a baseball that hit a fan in the stands. It was intended to be thrown in the dugout of the Dayton Dragons which resulted in a 10-minute brawl. Castillo was arraigned the next day and ordered held a $50,000 bond. He also had to surrender his passport.

December 21 - Shaun Ellis, who played for the New York Jets, threw a huge chunk of snow into the crowd of Seattle Seahawks fans in Seattle during a 13-3 Seahawks win over the Jets. Two days later, the NFL fined Ellis $10,000 for his actions, while Ellis claimed that it was "all in good fun."

Soccer is the world's most popukar sport. It is played in some countries that are not too stable. Having said that let's not turn this thread into something that will cause it to be locked out.

Some of you dont't like soccer and that is fine, but this post is for fun and we should keep it that way.

No sport is the end all, be all, that is time spent with loved ones not in front of the TV watching a sport. However, I like to combine, meaning my favorite is to watch my nephew play soccer.

Can't argue that.

Hardly any deaths from fans, either.

Hello Soccer fans. We just got a reason to sit in front of the TV on Sunday afternoon. The WPS (Women's Pro Soccer) is back first game was today. Los Angeles Sol against the Washington Freedom. The LA Sol has Marta on the team. It was a great game and a wonderful start to the season. I checked Youtube no videos of the game yet. I will post when one comes up.

Don't know why this is under jokes. Soccer fans are nuts!!

Ivory Coast: Stampede At Soccer Match Kills At Least 22



ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — A stampede at a World Cup qualifying soccer match in the Ivory Coast killed at least 22 people and wounded 132 Sunday, authorities said.

Fans at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny arena pushed against each other shortly before the game between Ivory Coast and Malawi, setting off a panic that led to the stampede, Interior Minister Desire Tagro said on state television.

"They started pushing to get in because the match was about to start and each and every one of them wanted to get in," Tagro said.

An Associated Press photographer said people began shoving and pushing 40 minutes before the beginning of the game. Police fired tear gas into one section of the crowd.

Ollo Kambire, a reporter for "Super Sport," a daily newspaper focusing on sports, said that a wall collapsed under the weight of the fans as they pushed toward the field. "We saw people falling. ... Then there was panic and a stampede," he said.

Ivory Coast won the match 5-0.

There have been a number of stampedes at Africa's crowded stadiums. Badly equipped security forces are far outnumbered and are often unable to control the voluminous crowds.
