About 10,000 Denver Broncos fans caused millions of dollars in damage after their team won the Super Bowl after the 1998 season.

Los Angeles had riots after the Lakers won NBA titles in 2000, 2009 and 2010.

Boston seems America’s capital of violent sports rioting: one death after the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2004, another after the Red Sox won the 2004 American League pennant, another after the Celtics won the NBA title in 2008.
And you take proud in that? Football fans are called dull and snobbish because they don't go out starting riots and murdering people? That's absolutely ridiculous and disgraceful if you think that.

So in your POV a sports fan should stay silent in his arena or stadium eating hot dog and getting drunk. Until his teams butt gets kicked because the away atmosphere is the same as home or they win. Then destroy the neighborhood of the team you root for. If European fans were like this Madrid would be called New Detroit
