I heart a televised scrap

Provided it doesn't inconvenience any members of the public, I heartily approve of football violence. I love the idea of millionaires, hopped up on testosterone and steroids, losing their dignity in a flailing mass of mis-firing biffs and raised chins, like 10 year olds trying to be involved without actually getting hurt. The other night's scrap between Valencia and Inter was a minor classic and I particularly direct your attention to the bit near the end where one player enters the opposition dressing room intending to lay waste to all that get in his way.
