LEEDS UNITED: AGAIN

Lots of money in Cheltenham.

This is what fans of rugby and other sports just simply don't get about football. How can you get so worked up about a group of people that you display such hatred and behave in such a way that one would normally consider unacceptable. Is it some sort of human trait left over from tribal times?

Granted the publicity in this case will mean this idiot is recognised a lot more in the immediate future, but in general it's always baffled me.
