Another tragic/sad roundup

-- First off, down in Brazil, Fluminense players need a police escort for protection from their own fans. Rabid fans attacked the team bus after a loss left the team in last place. Relegation is a bitch.

-- Some Bolivian player tested positive for the steroid dexamethazone after a World Cup qualifier. The team is saying it's because he was dizzy and nauseous after the game. Hopefully that's true.

-- Lastly, in Angola, a player died after collapsing on the pitch during a second-division game. He was only 26 years old. Sadly, these stories are all too common these days.
