WC 2006: Racist fans and one nation that will never play again in the World Cup
2006-06-04 11:21

The New York Times reports on worries about the not particularly infrequent instances of racist behavior toward black players from European fans.

Also, the team representing Serbia and Montenegro won't compete under that name anymore after Montenegro voted for independence. There are no Montenegrins on the the World Cup team. So it looks like Trinidad and Tobago will be the only team competing that is appropriately following Boolean logic.

And as if that weren't enough, Der Spiegel is also reporting that Neo-Nazis are planning to use the World Cup as a venue to voice their support of the current President of Iran, who has stated his desire to wipe Israel off the map.

How jolly. The words of Indiana Jones still apply.
