Video: US Soccer Fans Get Doused in Beer in Mexico After 0-0 Tie With Home Team

March 28, 2013

It’s not like this never happens elsewhere, but how often do you get video of visiting soccer fans having cups of beer thrown at them, while they’re being protected from rival fans by riot police as they chant “U-S-A, U-S-A” after a game that ended in a 0-0 tie? Just one more reason we love soccer. For the full story on the game, check out this story from The Bleacher…


Video: UC Santa Barbara Soccer Player Taken Off Field in Handcuffs After Pushing Referee

And that was just the start of the fun. First, the Gauchos lost to rival UC Davis 2-1, and after the match the coach and several players were arguing with the referees when player  Peter “Don’t Call Me McGruff” McGlynn decided to get the attention of the referee by shoving him from behind and knocking him to the ground (although it looks like the ref took a bit of a dive…

Video: Soccer Player Nearly Loses Hand After Finding Mini-Grenade on Field

September 24, 2012

It’s not unusual for fans of almost any sport to throw things onto the field when they’re unhappy with the game. Batteries, coins, water bottles . . . you name it, someone had probably thrown it in anger.  Then there’s the fans of the Arab Football Champions league. Here’s more from the YouTube description: Wednesday night’s AFC Champions League clash between Iranian side Sepahan and Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ahli produced no…


Video: Soccer Player, 10, Arrested for Kicking Opponent in Face

March 20, 2012

First off: there’s no mug shot on this one, sorry. Even in Hong Kong they apparently don’t publish mug shots of juveniles. Even juvenile soccer thugs. Second, if you skip to about 1:35 of the video below, you can see the incident in question. And really, with all the fake soccer dives and other on-field shenanigans (yes, we used the S word again) this really does look intentional. It would…


Painful Soccer Video: Coach Tries to Gouge Rivals Eye Out During Brawl – Jose #Mourinho, Tito #Vilanova

August 22, 2011

Don’t know who either of these guys are, and neither do we really care. What’s obvious is that Mr. Jose Mourinho (black shirt) obviously does not like Mr. Vilanova because he walks over with great determination while everyone else is watching a brawl between the players, just to stick a thumb in the other guy’s eye. Later though, he claims not to know Vilanova. What? Details from the bizarre YouTube…


#Columbian National #Soccer Coach Resigns After Punching Woman in Bar Who Criticized His Handling of Team

Everyone’s a critic! Even, apparently, 55-year-old women in bars who can’t resist telling prominent soccer coaches, like Columbia’s Hernan Dario Gomez, what they’re doing wrong. Unfortunately for Gomez, the lady was not much of a fighter and she failed to slip his punch and took one for the team. Now, he’s been forced to resign his post and is also has to defend himself on his treatment of women, telling…

Painful Sports Video: Soccer Player Nut Grab

March 13, 2011

Seems like every time we turn around there’s a new video for a professional soccer player either taking a dive for a non-existent injury, taking a cheap shot at an opposing player. This latest video shows what can happen when someone is grabbing for a soccer ball when both of you are on the ground. Certainly one of the more Painful Sports Videos we’ve ever posted. Shoulda worn that cup,…
