    you seem confused - im not trying to claim anyone is less evil . you are trying to suggest football hooligans are not scum of the earth - whereas im saying both they and IS are the scum of the earth - perhaps there will be a convienient meeting of the two, away from the rest of civilised society
    Your first statement is the problem. ISIS is more evil than football hooligans are and that does not mean both aren't scum of the earth.

    must be your own strawman. #my point wasnt to compare 'levels of evil'

    it was to say both were similar examples of primitive tribalism promoting mindless violence

    It's a minority of football fans
    This is a perversion of football supporting
    They were victims of police brutality
    They are failures of the British community
    It's a cultural issue
    Don't forget other countries have football hooligans too
