this may sound a bit controversial, but i admire the fact that hooliganism exists. i dont admire any damage/injuries caused by it, but football wouldn't seem right without the portrayal of sheer passion through hooliganism - as long as it doesnt get too out of hand (of course).
I always considered the hooligans to be the ones that cause damage and injuries. All the shouting at eachother from a distance doesn't seem like hooliganism to me so i don't think of them as hooligans (i guess that's the 'hooliganism' that you find acceptable, and that i don't really have a problem with either). Problem is, it tends to lead onto the rest of it

But hooliganism are the actions which will be considered by a high majority as being out of hand. Unless, of course, you're advocating a revival of south London football hooliganism like Millwall...

Hooliganism is glorified by the media today. I did an article for A-Level English about it. Look at all the media today about hooligans raving about them: Autobiographies, biographies, reports, articles, websites.............

...films (despite the anti-hooligan messages, usually at the end) eg Football Factory, and probably Green Street

Hooliganism (noun): willful, wanton and malicious destruction of the property of others.

Do you really advocate hooliganism, or just misunderstand the meaning? Hooliganism is what kills, excludes, humiliates; clubs and. teams are banned from competition by the disgraceful actions of their fans. Hooliganism is not synonymous with passion.

Spot on and indeed i similiarly wrote a school essay on the topic with regard to the media portrayal of sectarian violence and rivalry surrounding the Old Firm. The phenomenon is nowhere near as bad in England but in Scotland many a sanctimonious journalist basically makes a living by exaggerating and condemning the overblown hatred which goes with the Glasgow derby.

I'm yet to make my mind up on this Kraft investment. We clearly need the injection to catch up, both for the spiralling costs of the stadium, plus the need for players. I just pray that there aren't too many stipulations, i.e. naming rights.

I don't think i could take it being called The Kraft Arena, or whatever. It would make me cry

Ditto. Best case scenario would be New Anfield, and perhaps name the main stand 'Kraft Stand'. I think it's important to retain our history; our heritage is what this club is based on. In which case we should keep the Kop, mebbe Annie Road and perhaps name another as memorial - perhaps to Hillsborough, or Heysel, or perhaps Shanks.

I agree, I'd also cry if it does become The McKraft Superdome!

It's investment talks, not a corporate takeover. Moores would never give up his 51% holding.

I think there was a possible misunderstanding. When I said you're it wasn't specific to you, unless you were just answering as if you were asked anyway. I meant to say that fascists could well advocate hooliganism etc.
