Nightly News Round Up: Hooliganism Edition

What makes a soccer hooligan these days? I mean, at this point it's basically a dead form of ultra fandom. Don't tell the guys at GQ UK though, they seem to think Philly is full of them because of a few swear words here and there and a couple of them dressing like skin heads. Yep, judging the 3,000+ sized Sons of Ben supporter group by a handful of fans... Classy journalism is classy.

Enjoy the night's news.
