UMass Students Riot After Patriots Lose Super Bowl XLVI

Filed under: Football

Woah! Kids…calm down. It's not that important! LOLz!

The New England Patriots lost their Super Bowl rematch against the New York Giants on Sunday and the students at the University of Massachusetts Amherst weren't too happy with the outcome.

So unhappy, in fact, that they were compelled to riot on the campus and send those pesky Giants a message with chants like, "F*ck the Giants!" and, "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!"

We especially like the latter because who can resist chanting "U.S.A.!" when things don't go your way?

The kids seem pretty confident in their brave stand against the final score of a football game, but then the police — equipped with riot gear and giant horses — move in and the students scatter like roaches.

When it was all said and done, 16 students were arrested and it took police about 90 minutes to completely clear the area.

Sure, at first glance these kids may look like a bunch of drunken idiots looking for an excuse to break stuff, but let's not forget that they had the courage to stand up to the NFL and say what the rest of the nation was afraid to say — they really, REALLY wish the Patriots would have won the Super Bowl!

Over 70 Reportedly Dead After Egyptian Soccer Riot

Filed under: Sad SadViolenceSoccer

Soccer riot

This is awful, people! Just awful!

Thanks to reckless soccer hooligans in Egypt last night, at least 73 people are dead (1,000 injured) after a riot broke out at a game between two rival teams.

Ahly, a powerhouse club from Cairo, was visiting the town of Port Said and suffered a rare loss and was immediately swarmed by hometown fans. The team and fans ran for cover in the locker rooms, but unfortunately the bloodshed couldn't be escaped. Ahly coach Ahmed Nagui painted a gruesome picture of the riot when he said the locker room "looks like a morgue."

However, this morning, Tyler is pretending nothing went down at all!

Outraged Penn State Students Topple News Truck After Joe Pa Gets Fired

Filed under: Sad SadFootball

What do you get when a bunch of angry and (presumably) drunk Penn State students have a little get together in honor of Joe Paterno?

DESTRUCTION!

Armored police dispersed 2,000 students who gathered in the streets of Not-So-Happy Valley after they learned that their beloved Joe Pa had been fired.

Before police were able to control the situation, the angry mob managed to join hands in peaceful protest topple a news truck and pelt a photographer with rocks!

Very classy!

Check out the student's reaction (above) to the University's decision to relieve the football coach of his duties following the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal.

Just another sad reminder that actions have consequences.

Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmore, was sentenced to 16 months in jail today after he reportedly dropped acid, took a valium, and participated in attacking a Jaguar included in Prince Charles and Camilla's motorcade during a student riot in London last year, during which he was quoted screaming:

Soap Opera Fans Vs. ABC Affiliates

soap fans try to save shows

Hardcore soap opera fans are NOT happy about ABC's decision to cancel their favorite shows.

Last week, fans of All My Children and One Life to Live started A RIOT outside of The Lincoln Center in NYC, as a way of protesting the network's new daytime line-up.

They even handed out brochures referring to the replacement shows as "glorified infomercials appropriate for late-night basic cable channels, not for a major broadcast network." Ouch!

Now, Twitter-based group Soap Fans United are encouraging fans to reach out to ABC affiliates and complain about the new line-up.

The group has been very proactive in their efforts, including writing a letter to ABC president of daytime Brian Frons, in which they accused him of "taking apart a decades old tradition that can be updated and monetized and has built in brand recognition and viewer loyalty."

Here's more from the group's letter to Frons:

"Disney is supposed to be about synergy. Where is the Disney synergy with ABC daytime? Why put on two unproven shows and take a risk with Oprah Winfrey & Regis Philbin departing your station? Many of you are putting in an extra hour of news in place of 'Oprah' but without a solid daytime lead in, the ratings are going to free fall with a domino effect from your newscasts to early prime to primetime to late local news and even late-night."

Commendable effort by Soap Fans United, but unfortunately it looks like the end of All My Children and One Life to Live is inevitable.

ABC better not touch General Hospital though! We already know these fans are willing to riot for their shows…who knows WHAT they'll do if they lose EVERY soap opera!

Do U support Soap Fans United?
