American Football Hooliganism

One can argue that I haven't looked hard enough for any reports of American football hooliganism and you might be right as it has been a struggle to find some hard evidence of it happening in the land that is the U.S. of A. Which is case in point that there are more persistant instances reported of this happening in the UK and some parts of europe. It seems the bit of information I found written by this american finds the word hooligan synonymous with english football (soccer). He does however suggest that there are quite a lot more instances of violence in US sports as a whole.

Any similar kinds of acts of violence in american soccer are referred to as causing 'mayhem'. Mayhenism sounds a little bit more civilised.

I found this site which had some interesting views. Check it out.
