The things you own end up owning you.

Lion in a Cage

During the League Championship party, some supporters of the Galatasaray Football Club, brought a two-old lion into the Ali Sami Yen stadium. Accordingly, the firma who rented the lion from the Antalya Zoo was fined something like 200 Euros.
What is quite extra-ordinary is, you come up with an absurd idea of bringing a lion, the symbol of Galatasaray, into the Stadium. Then you contact some people, and somehow a friendly lion imprisoned in the Antalya Zoo, is rent and brought into 35.000 manic human beings. Of course the lion is big time traumatised. But the ironic thing is, neither the Galatasaray Club, nor the supporters, nor the football players, nor nobody, nor the Antalya Zoo, nor the firma, excused about the shit they did.

Welcome to Hell

is the motto of the Ali Sami Yen Stadium. Indeed welcome to hell, a Roman arena where lions are butchered for fun. The fascism of football, and the safety-valve of modern times. a free area for aggression therapy. This is the reality…unfortunately,

a wonderful video about the issue
