    That article reminded me of “How Soccer Explains the World” but even less convincing. I’ve always kinda bought into Clarence Seedorf’s position that soccer reflects societal problems, it does not necessarily cause them.

    Good points!

    hooliganism and football go together in a certain American mindset, so it’s not surprising to see them linked gratuitously, as in the mind of some readers, they are always linked.

    I’d also say that violence in England was at it’s banal peak in the 70s, rather than it’s newsworthy and violent peak in the 1980s.
