When booing just isn't enough

"At least 74 people have been killed and 1,000 injured after a football pitch invasion in Egypt, according to reports."

UPDATE: More G&M "lipstick on pig" journalism
outrage indeedThe mighty Globe & Mail now claims that Egyptians are "outraged" by the massacre... inconveniently forgetting that the original article had already detailed what people were really pissed off about...
As details of the violence emerged, a football match in Cairo, 200km (125 miles) away, was called off in mourning and television footage showed sections of the stadium on fire.

An announcer said the blazes had been started by fans angry over the cancellation.
Apparently "mourning & outrage" are only for infidel pussies.

Speechless really they don;t seem to be able to handle winning, or losing.
Once the mob mentality starts very hard to stop.

More soccer games in Egypt please. At least then they'd be too busy to kick the Coptics around.
