YouTube commenters are writing things like “I WOULD FUCKï»¿ HER UP!!!!!…what a bitch!” and “Bitch.ï»¿ Kill her!” apparently without irony. A number of copies of this or related video clips are titled with references to “cat fights.” This NYT article questions what role the coach and referees played in allowing or even encouraging the violence, but never puts the level of violence into context. Watch this video, and this one. Men play soccer very aggressively too. Doesn’t make the violence okay, but it makes the current media focus on one woman player odd to say the least.
