In every nation around the world, people have allowed their energy, time and money to be wasted on following professional sports. Here in America the major sports, especially football, have become a religion to seemingly intelligent adults.
In that vein, around the world soccer is an obsession and religion to many, which to most sports fans in America is a mystery as to why because of it's slow pace and lack of scoring. On a regular basis major riots break out among 'fans' who are either so bored from watching soccer, overly excited, or disappointed by the results of the game, that they choose to start fighting and destroying things.
We are not immune to that in America or Canada either. Sports are the most common cause of riots in the United States, accompanying more than half of all championship games or series, and almost all occur in the winning team's city, However in 2011, after the Boston Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup final, there was a major riot in the downtown area of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Estimates of the losses due to vandalism, theft, and damage to property were estimated to be nearly $5 million. Many stores were looted. Here's a partial list of some of the more famous sports riots that have taken place in America:
Violent Los Angeles riots have occurred after three Lakers NBA Championship wins, first in 2000, followed by riots in 2009 and 2010 when 50 were arrested. Destructive L.A. fans tend to incite your typical sports rioting: property gets destroyed, fires burn, and people throw things. Injuries and arrests are plenty.
After the Philadelphia Phillies secured the 2008 World Series championship title, tens of thousands of elated fans decided to wreck their own "City of Brotherly Love". Cars were flipped over, fires blazed, and obscenities were screamed.
After the Red Sox victory over the New York Yankees during the 2004 American League Championship Series, Boston was turned upside-down in a celebratory riot. A 21-year-old Victoria Snelgrove was killed when she was hit in the eye with a pepper spray projectile shot by Boston police. The crowds and chaos kept her from receiving medical attention, and she died hours later. Sox fans rioted again in 2007 after Boston won the World Series against the Colorado Rockies.
The 1990 Detroit Pistons riot is probably the only sports-related North American melee that can even compare to the terrifying soccer riots that regularly take place abroad. That year, after the Detroit Pistons won the NBA championship against the Portland Trail Blazers, seven people were killed. Hundreds were injured by gunfire and stabbings. Chaos ensued until 140 people were arrested.
It's amazing that people will riot over the outcome of a game that has absolutely no effect on their life, but not over the poisoning of their water through fluoridation, their jobs being shipped overseas, the destruction of the middle class and the devaluation of their currency. They just tamely stand by as their lives are ruined by these traitors running America, but want to start a war because of the way a ballgame turned out.
The reason that people get so emotional about sporting events is tied into the fact that they are investing so much time and mental energy into what is in reality a meaningless diversion designed to sap the peoples intelligence and energy away from fighting their real adversary, namely those running the international banks that control the financial system of the world. As long as they put their life force into the fantasy of fighting an opposing team from another city or country, the elitists are safe.
This has allowed these hidden entities to gain amazing power and influence over your lives without you realizing it. Eventually, the end result will be no different than that of a drug addict or an alcoholic waking up one day and realizing they no longer have control over their lives, and are in danger of losing everything.
America has fallen so far so fast in part because of this fascination with sports. In essence, sports teams are nothing more than privately owned traveling circuses, using these athletes to keep the illusion alive. The violent riots, gambling and drinking that often accompany sporting events vividly display the true nature behind sports.
Distractions like sports are put there and encouraged by the hidden hand. The media of course is one of the devices they use to promote sports. Look at all the sports talk shows on radio. Look at the ratings for a Super Bowl, or a World Series. It is absolutely necessary for them to keep the masses off balance and dull minded, and sports is one of the many tools that they implement to keep us enslaved.
