In a sport where there has been plenty of fan violence in the past few weeks, let alone history, we’re always cautious when showing off anything incendiary. When a rivalry match ends with a 200-person brawl outside the stadium, then the incendiary stuff better be exceptionally well done.
Well that’s what Deadspin brings us from the FC Copenhagen match against Brondby this weekend.
Copenhagen’s fans bring forth an elaborate tifo, complete with a fan running a “cannonball” from a cannon into a painting of Brondby’s home stadium. That takes down half the “stadium,” as a second cannonball brings the whole thing down in time for smoke bombs to make it look like a real siege.
Look: no one’s advocating the actual demolition of Brondby’s stadium. This is symbolic. And if some nutcase was whacked enough to want to do that, he wouldn’t be using a cannonball.
Is it better than the giant Uncle Sam from last year’s U.S. World Cup qualifying or the Dinamo Bucharest display from last year? We’ll let you decide… but this was undoubtedly art:
