The baffling nature of sporting and ethnic hatred.

There are many things people do that leave me baffled, and two of those are sporting riots and ethnically and racially motivated hatred. Both of those have reared their ugly heads lately at soccer matches in Australia - firstly back in March in Sydney, when Serbian supporters of one club clashed with Croatian supporters of another, and then last night the Macedonian supporters of one club clashed with the Greek supporters of another. This comes just after the recent violence in Europe, centred around the games between Inter and AC Milan and Juventus and Liverpool, and I simply cannot understand it.
