Even in the most heated rivalries. I can't imagine Yankee Stadium needing to keep Red Sox fans in a separate section, for example.

(Now, people from outside Philadelphia like to bring up the time a football crowd here threw snowballs at Santa Claus, but that was 35 years ago and I wasn't there....)
This is what I like on USA and Canada

Btw. Ex-Yugoslav countries have a good tradition on hooligans


In Slovakia, football is definitely not a sport for families to watch. Vulgarisms, neonazis, hooligans, stupid people fighting etc. And there is nothing to watch either. Much favourable situation is in ice hockey.

Only exception was the game against Italy in 2010 which attracted as much audience as ice hockey. I suspected that Italians and Slovaks changed they jerseys before the match possibly. Because in next game, Netherlands wiped their asses by us.

Be nice, or they'll ban football/soccer discussion.

Besides, Belgium or the US will get them both in the end. :-)

Anyhow, relevant linguistic tidbit of the day:

(I'd forgotten that this was the derivation of "soccer." Someone just posted it in another forum.)

We call football/soccer "nogomet", which means foot-throw. They used to call it "žogobrc" (ball-kick). Football would translate into "nogožog(a)".

Also Fusbal is another word for soccer in Slovenia. It's more informal/slang word. I would say that it is the most commonly used word in everyday speech or in conversation among friends.

I always say: "Dej gremo na fusbal"/"Let's go play some soccer"
