Default Crazied sports fan in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) Police say an Iraqi soccer player has been shot dead just as he was about to kick what could have been the tying goal in a weekend game south of Baghdad.

Police Maj. Muthanna Khalid says a striker from the Buhairat amateur team was facing only the goalie during a Sunday match in Hillah when a supporter of the rival Sinjar club shot him in the head in the final minute of play.

Sinjar was leading 1-0 when the shooting occurred. Khalid said a spectator was arrested.

More Iraqis are turning out for sports events now that security is improving. Major matches in Baghdad are heavily guarded but security in amateur games in smaller cities is often lax.


I kow I get as mad as the next person when my team is blowing it but damn this is excessive.

Sounds more like the reincarnation of one of his psycho sons.

Scoring in soccer is not that easy. If his goalie is that bad, maybe he should have been shot instead.

Apparently there is still no freedom to score a goal in soccer in Iraq yet

Well, at least it wasn't a socialistic tendancy to redistribute the points. Clearly, a tie was not good enough. Those evil capitalists.

They left out the names of the teams in the article. The match featured the heavily favored Basra Bombers against the Hilla Head Takers. The shooting had nothing to do with soccer
