Volleyball Hooligans.

Whenever a football riot occurs some pundits invariably claim that the violence somehow is caused by integral aspects of the sport itself, I wonder how they'd explain this:

ATHENS, Greece — The Greek government suspended play in all professional team sports for two weeks Friday after a fan was killed in a volleyball riot.


The ban, which covers soccer, basketball, volleyball and other sports, will last until April 13.
A man was killed and seven others were hospitalized Thursday when fans from rival women's volleyball clubs Panathinaikos Athens and Olympiakos Piraeus fought near Athens.

Women's volleyball riot? The mind boggles.

I could understand a pitch invasion at a women's Beach Volleyball match, but this is bizarre.
