Over in the Cypriot top flight on Saturday, an Anorthosis player (as well as several other members of personnel) came incredibly close to suffering an even nastier injuries when a Omonia Nicosia fan armed with an explosive flare decided to test out just how injured the prone player really was by chucking his grenade into the mix…

The match was then suspended for 10 minutes, though thankfully no-one was actually injured by the projectile.

    That’s horrible.

  2. Mr. Chopper says:

    It’s brilliant that nobody was injured but… Why do they all go down like they’ve been shot?

    And I can’t board a plane with a fucking pocket knife…..

  4. Chris says:

    Explosives like that are temporarily blinding and deafening and can cause general disorientation. That is why they went down. I’m sure it was hot too, even if they weren’t badly burned.

    I’m on a football pitch? Oh, well, then if anything happens to me it will cause me to act like it’s the end of the world.
    Two guys kneel beside the dude in blue that looks like he’s near death. Both get up and walk away after speaking to him. He’s clearly faking it. Why though?
    Same with Dida v. Celtic.
    Busquets. Pepe. All those phony head-butt videos you can find. Gilardino.

    What is the point of acting like you’re actually hurt when you aren’t? I’ll never understand.
