And they call them selves grown ups

Today was a derby day in the city where I live, the two rival teams where facing in a regular season game. There has always been a strong rivalry between the two teams but it's not the teams that I am writing about, its the followers and they way they behave.

I was at work and had a full view of the road to the stadium. you can always tell when there is a match between the two teams because there is no one around who isn't a fan.
it got to about a hour before kick off and the road was full of football fans
from mainly the home team, they wear there team colours with pride and 70% of them are there to enjoy the game and have a nice time.

however it's the other 30% I am writing about, I was truly amazed at just how stupid these men were, and it wasn't teenagers it was men in their mid 30's to early 40's.
They walked up the street singing and staggering with drinks in their hands and straight away you could tell they were just looking for trouble. they were pointing at supporters of the opposite team and shouting abuse towards them.
They walked in front of traffic with no regard for their own safety or the safety of anyone els,
and yet I bet that if most of these men saw their children acting like that they would have something to say about it.

Old men who fought in the war are proud to have defended their country. they fought to defend life and preserve our rights.

but what do these (FOOTBALL FANS) fight for? They fight all because some one likes a different team or wears a different colour, or looks at them in the wrong way.

and they call them selves grown ups huh

That does sound bad.

Yeah, I agree that that does sound pretty bad. It's crazy sometimes to see the things that grown adults do. I guess some people just never grow up, do they?
