The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Beaten to it once again…

I came here to post something on the Togo attack, and saw that – for the 423098402348th time in recent memory – Brendan beat me to the punch yet again.

However, what I want to add is that it is remarkably irresponsible on the part of the relevant African football authorities to stage even part of a major tournament in a conflicted region like Cabinda. I mean, would you hold the Olympics in Afghanistan? Would you hold the World Cup in Chechnya? Fuck, I wouldn’t walk across the street in these places, let alone hold a major sporting event there.  It’s crass stupidity, and puts peoples’ lives in danger for no good goddamn reason.
