Thursday 2:30 PM Newcastle Crown Court. How soon until Law and Order: SVU tackles the ongoing rivalry between Newcastle and Sunderland fans? It has everything including riots and horse punching. All we need is a sexual crime. Obviously a Sunderland supporter raping a horse in revenge for Barry Rogerson punching a horse. Dramatic court room scene? Sorted.
An unnamed juror was kicked off a jury panel after admitting that he couldn’t be impartial towards the defendant who he called a “Mackem rapist”.
The Newcastle United fan is understood to have told fellow jury members he could not give David Blake, from Sunderland, a fair trial so soon after the bitter 3-0 defeat.
He was then instructed to inform court staff, and stood by his bias when he was brought before Judge Penny Moreland.
As a result, before hearing any evidence from the witness box, he was kicked off the panel despite the trial having opened at Newcastle crown court.
He was told not to come back to court to complete his two weeks’ jury service.
The defendant was eventually convicted after the trial was restarted. Ain’t no mistrials up in Her Majesty’s court. We’re getting this done.
Mackem is slang for a Sunderland resident. Their fans were allegedly chanting “Have you ever seen a Mackem punch a horse!” during their match against Everton last week. Dick Wolf needs to hit us up. TV gold, baby. TV gold.
Dean Wormer told Mr. Dorfman that fat, drunk and stupid was no way to go through life. Losing soccer tournaments isn’t either at least if you play in Argentina.
Injury was added to insult after Huracan lost to Godoy Cruz in the Copa Argentina and their fans attacked the players as they showered following practice.
A group of furious fans disguised in masks bum rushed the locker room, beat up the players and stole their possessions. Several of their cars were also vandalized.
South American fans are known for their fanaticism but beating up players is usually handled by other players or drug cartels. Supporters threatening players is more of an Italian move. Hooligans punching horses is more of an English thing. Robbing players is the signature move of Liverpool and Naples.
“Now that is a disgusting act by Randy Moss.” Who can forget where they were when Joe Buck expressed the disgust of a nation after Randy Moss pretended to moon Packers fans? Won’t someone please think about the children? Imagine his reaction upon seeing Mirko Vucinic strip off his shorts and wave them over his head like a lasso.
What is it with people thinking video needs crap music instead of the original sound? Too bad Vucinic doesn’t play for Lazio. The poster could have put his goal celebration to “Accidental Racist“.
