Well, no, the crime rate in Argentina is average, neither low nor high. It's more ore less like in the US. The problem of football violence is not necessarily connected to common street crime. It is tied to the political system, politicians support those Argentine hooligans. Anyway, I don't deny this is a big problem and is certainly crime, but when you associate my country just with that, I feel the need to correct you. This isn't a ****hole, I tell you.

I only mentioned those that I usually watch every year , which does not mean that Liverpool vs Manchester United could be bigger than them, is just a matter of personal choice; by the way, we won't have El Rojo vs La academia in Avellaneda the next season,because el rojo will be playing in Second division, DAMN!
