Romanian football: fan runs onto pitch, punches player

Crazy. Skip to 1.30 for the slow mo version.

In a nutshell a guy was dragged down in the box and a penalty was awarded. It was a soft penalty, but still clearly the correct decision.

Angry fan ran onto pitch and smacked a guy in the face in revenge. Doesn't seem like the same guy that went down in the box though, so not sure how that works.

I liked it how the player was holding his face, and then kept looking up to see if anyone was paying attention to him, and then held his face again .. and then looked up ...

They should all be red carded for being pussies.

shouldnt have been anything. a red if you hit a fan yes. a red for bringing down a criminal who just assaulted your team-mate after unlawfully invading the pitch, no.

Did that Goalie get shot by a flare or something?

Also, lol at the slowmo replay of the guy getting hit in the ear, looking around to see what happened and then putting on the performance. They even brought out a stretcher.

The punch broke a bone in his ear and now he is deaf. Hardly putting on a performance.

This was all over last nights news. The keep got hit with a flare and burned on his back. The game was abandoned after the 2nd incident. A great ad for the sport all round, not. Stupid fans.

Broken cheek bone and deafness. Seems a bit rough to call him a pussy - he was king hit. I'd like to see how you'd react if you were king hit.

Not often you see a real hit in this game, funny that it had to come from the stands. Sux for the guy who got hit though. Soccer def has the worst fans.

If it truly hurt I'd be on the ground, not looking around first to see if I should 'fall' down and then keep looking up regularly to see if anyone is seeing me hold my face in pain.

I used to think that all soccer players were pussies until I started playing it. I've done all sorts of ligament damage and so many broken limbs from our team. It's probably because we're retarded at it but still. You don't appreciate or realise how actually dangerous it is until you play it so shut the f*** up you f***** c**** or else I'll king hit you in the ear!

A king-hit is a knockout, he wasn't rocked in the slightest, his legs were stable and he decided to buckle them and take a dive like a retard.

I'm pretty sure that he felt alright immediately after, then the intense pain of having his earbone smashed kicked in and he fell to the ground

He is a massive f***** for holding up the game and ruining it for all the spectators. A true sporting hero cops a flying knee to the face that shatters his eye socket and then kicks the winning field goal for the game.

Not half conditioned to being hit those UFC guys...

Am I the only one thinking the fan hit the wrong person? That umpire should have red carded himself for giving away such a weak penalty.

That happens sometimes when you're struck in the ear, it has nothing to do with his fake collapse though.

Fast forward to 3:55, 1 kick, bursts his eardrum.

Difference is UFC fighters are expected to get hit in the face. However, no sport accepts or condones king hits, not even UFC and that was clearly an uncalled for king hit from behind!

I agree, the punch was to the side of the head and probably wasn't hard enough to knock down the player, but I would say the daze would have easily brought him down, especially if you just lost your hearing in one ear. It's a slightly delayed reaction (which I think is normal in this circumstance), but bear in mind the footage was in super slow-mo.

I'm no big soccer/football fan, but I'd say the organisers, security and referees have a lot to answer for in this shamble of a match. Something drastic needs to be done about the fan culture, too, and has been for decades.

Hope the king hit player recovers, I'd hate to lose half my hearing because of some c*nt!

From a football forum:

Both players got off without no suspension despite being sent off :shock: , and the host club will play 6 home games without supporters
After all we are talking about most corrupt club in Romania.

This is their Team Manager hitting and supporter at a home game.

One of their supporters trying to hit a goal-keeper a few years back.
