Football (or soccer, for those of us too deluded to accept that when the ball is oval the game should either be called Rugby, or called off as a bad idea) referees globally have one of the most dangerous jobs in sports. I have seen countless videos of fans chasing a lone official across town, just because they made a call that the fans did not agree with. Therefore, that the ref was destroyed in such a total manner in retaliation for the killing of the player is not a suprise.

It is however, utterly disgraceful, and does not do any favours to Brazil as a destination for sports tourism, which is sort of ironic if you ask me.

On the subject of images and video of the incident, I have only this to say. Confronting the realities of the anatomical process is necessary for the development of realistic attitudes to death and dying. I grow increasingly weary of the consideration paid to those who would rather shy away from such content, because it shows a lack of intestinal fortitude, mental discipline, and willingness to observe reality objectively. That said, having veiwed the material available on this particular matter, I can tell you that since the image and video quality is so poor, one is left with an impressionistic image of the scene, rather than a detailed one.

I much prefer crime scene photographs. You get close ups, multiple angles, and they are next to always HD quality, which means that forensically important details can be seen. That said, we deal with the puss ridden underbelly of the world here at ATS. We read the stories no one else seems to want to read, we know the things that other people would rather ignore, we sift the decaying contents of the bowels of humanity here. The political moves that place ever greater power, on ever smaller numbers of shoulders, the military actions and thier consequences, the corruptions and deceptions we are party to here... These things ought to turn our guts far more than images which show the many ways we die. Death is natural, wether foul play is involved or not. As for the other things we view and comment on, those are not natural, and yet we do not shy away from them. I fail to understand the double standard here.

Brazil seems like a reasonable place to hold the 2016 Olympic Games.


Apparently the value of life just took another dip. I'll never understand how people can get so twisted over a recreational activity.

Don't post a video of that, or still photos either. We don't need to desensitize our population any further.

Are we doomed as a species? I don't think so.
I look at it as a 'reset'. Like the fall of the Roman Empire or the Dark Ages.
Except now we have a global society and it will be a global reset.

Well, the 2016 Rio Olympics look like being fun!

Football (soccer) is a game where players have no respect for the referee. The whole culture of the football is wrong. In Rugby Union you can be sent off and banned for future matches for even looking at the ref in a disrespectful way. Fans in Rugby Union drink together!

I agree with the not posting a video, those who want to find it, go ahead and find it. The internet is a very large place. You'll find the video between porn and cats doing nothing in particular.

I think the only thing that needs to be reset is the dollar sign. Some of those players earn more in a week than other people will earn in their entire working lives. There's just too much money, and too much stress.

Need any more proof that people take sports way too seriously?
It probably qualifies as religion to some given the intensity of their passion for it.
irony is that in the original mayan ball game the winner got beheaded in honor of the Gods.
In that case i'd be happy with a trophy for being a benchwarmer.

In medieval times you has to go to a public square to see someone hung, drawn and quartered.

Now you click on Youtube.

Technology has evolved and advanced but humanity hasn't.

only if you consider religion to be an "opiate of the masses"
as marx put it

these are the same violent responses you'll see if you get between a junkie and it's fix.

sports being a sublimated form of warfare, the state provides it as part of the Civil Religion, in order to drain dangerous energies and frustrations, that could directed at the state and it's managers.

it's one thing for a group of kids playing or for purposes of physical culture and fitness

but at the so called professional level, it's a well very oiled machine that does it's intended job

think of all the energy[this means money as well] either drained or hoovered up by the system

take it from One Who Knows,

or feel free to ignore my words, as I Am quite "Insane"

Wow... That makes a ton of sense. I've never seen it that way but I can feel it. Very interesting. Thank you

Appalling about the player and ref.. mankind continues to disappoint.

Meanwhile at the Legion of Doom Headquarters

The powers that be are wringing their hands in sheer delight.

Yes, our plans are coming to fruition gloriously! Look at how the apes are behaving! and all over a soccer game, and they have no idea this is exactly how we want them to behave.

Good, Good.

Next weeks hockey game should produce riots of unmeasurable destruction!

I can't wait for the superbowl!

You make some good points, but I must disagree that there is anything "natural" about viewing this kind of thing. The whole thing was horrible, and the mob mentality very disturbing.....I won't watch it.....

As far as why people are beheaded I once read that the eyes and mind still work after they are beheaded and that's why they hold up the head......very gruesome if true.......

Well, yup, we're going backwards, what is the force behind the de-evolution?
That's the question.

Holy crap...that's brutal, both incidences. Did this all of a sudden turn into Mayan soccer?

When I played, only the Captain could speak to the referee and if you didn't call him Sir, he just ignored you.

And to the poster earlier who said 'Is the species doomed?', yes. But the planet will be just fine without us. So it balances out.

First and foremost. Is RT a proven - trusted source ?

I've seen a couple of 'Oh ... Really ? threads of late.
RT has been involved ... both times.

Are you sure it's not just speculative hype ?


I trust RT 100,000 times more than the puppet media here in the U.S., or what gerald celente refers to as presstitutes.

As far as the referee goes, an eye for an eye, although in this case it seemed a bit over the top..

From the looks of the pics on youtube it looks like it was a game of streetball. I don't think any league would allow a "referee" to wear denim cargo pants when calling a game.

From growing up in a male dominated culture where women stayed at home mostly, cooking dinner and cleaning the house and being subservient (I was given a working replica hoover and ironing board as toys) whilst men generally chose a sport, followed it fanatically whether inducing deep seated hatred or not, it all seemed and seems so very macho to me and hence really anathema to being culturally evolved.

I normally am mostly vegetarian but today ate some meat, beef specifically, which is the meat we eat rarest in our house, and both my son and I got angry afterwards, like there was something in the meat that caused aggression. Perhaps it is the meat people eat or something in the water. Looking at sports like this, the pictures a few posts back and recalling my childhood, school and teenage years of seeing male football players behaving aggressively squaring up to each other over teams, during matches, after matches etc all looks like 'meathead' behaviour and to be honest it is all very offensive to watch.

This story makes sports like football even more repulsive to me.

Perhaps if these sports are taught, ethics instead of aggression should be part of the teaching.

ATS at it's infantile worst

Sorry OP this site used to be full of intelligent thoughtful people

You just happened to post in the middle of a troll fest.

Truly horrendous and sickening turn of events in the match, I'm just watching the Lions trounce Australia not so much as a swear word.

A thread I saw yesterday took the cake in immaturity. I wished I could have given the mods applause for dealing with it so swiftly.

Are we doomed as a species? The current level of barbarianism in the world astounds me.

It almost feels that some parts of world are actually de-evolving.

It Is one manic killing after another, there is something in the water....

Also, does anyone know the symbolic nature of beheading someone? What is the fascination in some cultures?
