In between periods of Thursday’s game, a bunch of mooks in Capitals jerseys outside of the arena heckled a Penguins fan doing an on-camera interview. At least one of them yelled “You are faggots,” and “You suck cock.”
IFK Göteborg were set to host Malmö for a regularly scheduled, 90-minute Swedish league match yesterday. But towards the end of the game, some fans threw a huge firecracker at Malmö’s Tobias Sana, and Sana returned the favor by firing one of the corner flags javelin-like in the fans’ direction, and the rest match was…
MLS fans agitating players and getting into fights in the stands? Maybe they really are getting the hang of this soccer thing, after all!
We can’t embed the video, so go watch this clip of an adult brawl at a Florida Little League game, shot from behind an immobile, heartbreakingly tiny catcher who can only look on at the carnage. Keep blocking that plate, you poor little guy.
So, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Stories about violence during soccer matches are becoming so routine that they don’t really need much in the way of a lead-in. Alhaurín de la Torre’s 24-year-old forward Samuel G.P. played an away match for the club’s B-team on Sunday. At the end of it, some fans stormed the field and apparently tried to kill him.
What was already a bad week for asshole soccer fans in Europe got worse yesterday, after video that appears to show a group of men—allegedly Sparta Prague fans in town for their team’s Europa League match against Lazio—tormenting and abusing a homeless woman, with one even urinating on her.
In case you were wondering if the kind of senseless violence against referees so commonly seen in South American and lower-level European soccer has also infiltrated the game in Africa, this video of a Congolese ref getting brutally beaten by fans for no apparent reason should resolve your curiosity.
While Jamal Crawford was shooting free throws during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs, the NBA TV mics picked up a high-pitched Spurs fan attempting to heckle his teammate J.J. Redick:
Two clowns at Tuesday’s Red Wings-Blue Jackets game argued and threw punches at each other before security intervened. It’s unclear what prompted the brawl, but it was most likely very important.
Update [11:01 a.m.]: Turns out, the tweeted picture showing the remote in the TV was a joke and not actually a picture of Sotherton’s TV. Sorry for the error. The original post is below.
Alexandre Perron, the older brother of Rouyn-Noranda Huskies winger Francis Perron, was so incensed about a roughing minor against his brother in a Feb. 11 game that he threw a can at QMJHL referee Dominick Bédard. The projectile hit Bédard right in the crotch, and he doubled over on the ice.
Last weekend, Howell High School and Manalapan High School played to a 1-1 tie in boys hockey at Howell Ice World. The game got wild in the third period when a Howell player was given a ten minute penalty for cursing at referee Dave Brown. There was only five minutes left in the game, so this essentially constituted…
This old dude right here is apparently known as “Boogieman,” and is a fixture at Kentucky basketball games. Someone please tell Boogieman that he is far too old to just go around scooping people up:
The narrator of this video says that a Broncos fan kicked over a portable toilet, with a Patriots fan inside, after Sunday’s game in Denver.
Yesterday’s Bengals-Steelers game was an insane punching contest on the field, with a series of high-profile cheap shots and blows to the head down the stretch.

We’ll let the weeping referee, officiating a league match in Tunisia, speak for himself, for they are words we all can agree on: “Hearing such insults, it’s hard to hold back tears. No one likes to hear his mother insulted. God bless my mother!”
Rockets guard Jason Terry got into an altercation with a fan during the third quarter of tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings. Terry’s momentum carried him into the crowd after attempting to defend a Ben McLemore dunk, and he put his hands out to brace himself. The fan he touched in doing so, who turns out to…

A Cowboys fan took video of fans fighting on the concourse of the Skins’ stadium in Landover after Dallas beat Washington Monday night. Though the clip’s narrator claimed a man was stabbed, EMS says they did not respond to a stabbing.
