More soccer violence

Seven police and five fans were injured in a soccer riot in Greece.
PAOK fans resumed clashes with riot police outside the stadium following the scoreless game, pelting them with rocks and bottles, erecting barricades and burning trash cans.
No one likes a 0-0 game.

But then there's Germany, where cops had to use water cannons and pepper spray.
Hansa, a former top-division club, squandered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 and is now in danger of falling into the third division. The club fired coach Dieter Eilts after the match.
That'll get the fans riled up too.
