    It shows how whipping up hatred, led by the President, can backfire. Argentina is the host, right? So their behaviour will be judged more harshly than any other country. This is not impressive behaviour from the Argentine children.

    I also read that the final may not be held in BsAs national stadium because of the damage caused by the River Plate fans. There are very real concerns that it cannot be reapired in time to meet the standards required to hold the final.

    What a stupid comment Elaine just read the link from Rob the brutish.

    “Un periodista de Televisión Nacional de Chile que cubría el apoyo de los trasandinos a su equipo comentó a Canal 7 los disturbios se habrían producido por el accionar de un movilero de CQC Chile que, con la irreverencia y picardía acostumbradas en el estilo de del programa, habría fogoneado con los sincoleros un altercado entre ambas partes, la chispa que luego encendió los enfrentamientos”

    I have watched on tv that both side were guilty to start a fight were some resulted with damaged bodies.....Bad thing for both of them....The host must have a warm behaviour and the guest must be recpectful and quiet.
    Sorrily, the journalist have as always had a missing responsability doing what they think is best-seller before what the criterious mind recommended. That attitude can be seen in all kind of matters that the new journalist generation are involved...the yellow journalism is having their result.
