But there are TONS of other players who are hiding faces that would put Prince Eric to shame under those helmets!
Football hooliganism normally involves conflict between gangs, often known as football firms (the term derives from the British slang for a criminal gang), formed for the specific purpose of intimidating and physically attacking supporters of other teams.
Other terms commonly used in connection with hooligan firms include "army", "boys", "casuals", and "crew".
Certain clubs have long-standing rivalries with other clubs (usually, but not always, geographically close) and hooliganism associated with matches between them (sometimes called local derbies), is likely to be more severe.
Conflict may take place before, during or after matches.
If you're one of those people who thinks football is just a bunch of big, muscular dudes running around a field with an awkwardly shaped ball, then you're dead wrong!
OK, so that's actually a pretty good description of what goes down in EVERY NFL game…
However, we're guessing you didn't know that a lot of those big, muscular dudes running around the field are actually REALLY hot!
Of course, when we talk about hot footballers, EVERYONE thinks of Tom Brady!
Participants often select locations away from stadia to avoid arrest by the police, but conflict can also erupt spontaneously inside the stadium or in the surrounding streets.
In such cases, shop windows may be smashed, rubbish bins set on fire, and police cars may be overturned.
In extreme cases, hooligans, police, and bystanders have been killed, and body-armoured riot police have intervened with tear gas, police dogs, armoured vehicles and water cannons. Hooligans who can afford the time and money may follow the national team on its journeys to away matches and engage in hooligan behaviour against the hooligans of the home team.
