Quotes: Football Hooligans
What began as a traditional soccer riot has escalated into a city-wide orgy of destruction!

The population in every city has for a long been divided into two groups, the Greens and the Blues [...] The members [of each faction] fight with their opponents not knowing for what reason they risk their lives, but realizing full well that even when they vanquish their opponents in brawls, they will be carted off to prison [...] there arises in them an endless and unreasoning hatred against their fellow men, respecting neither marriage nor kinship nor bonds of friendship, even if those who support different colors might be brothers or some other kind of relatives. Neither human nor divine affairs matter to them compared to winning these [street] fights.
Procopius of Cesarea, a 6th Century Byzantine historian proving some things are way older than football
