Video: Referee sends off entire team after riot in Argentina
Eighteen red cards dished out for bad behaviour
Football fans in South America are incapable of watching a game for five minutes without punching someone (evidence, more evidence, even more evidence), so the events that occurred in Argentina’s Primera C division last Saturday will surprise absolutely no one.
Barracas Bolivar were leading rivals General Lamadrid 3-0, but the match had to be abandoned after an hour when a fight broke out. Yahoo explains:
It started when three players and four staff from Lamadrid became involved in a dispute between the local fans of Bolivar.
The incident soon escalated and within moments all the players from the away side came over to defend their team-mates and staff, clashing with the supporters.
Plenty of punches were thrown and the violence had to be broken up by some of those present at the stadium.
