@Archetype: Exactly. I'm just so over that "oh, Europe is so much more sophisticated" attitude. I just, from my own experiences, think that it happens to be more overt in Europe because it's not an "issue" like it is here. Have you heard some of the chants or seen some of the banners waved at European soccer matches? Things like that would be unheard of at an NFL game.

Unfortunately, there are idiots here and there are idiots over there.
