Soccer In The Maw

Football, or as Americans call it, soccer....presumably to distinguish it from the All-American game of Gay Tag....has some weird rules.
And that's before you even get on the field.
Which is what triggers today's post: on-field behavior by fans.
What? They shouldn't be on the field? Precisely!
Usually a team is sanctioned by beign forced to play "X" number of home games in an empty stadium. The Turkish football federation did it a little bit better.
They declared Tuesday's game between Fenerbahce and Manisaspor "Ladies night"
No. Men. Allowed.
Beautifully done.
