Horrible news. Hopefully they'll ban flares now. They bring nothing to football.

who throws flares honestly? why cant they bring normal stuff like big hand mit, little team flags and such. bringing flares, or loud noise honkers and stuff like that is dumb. you gonna make someone go deaf or something.

Those were ship flares, which travel up to 400 meters inside a shell. Really works (and worked) as a weapon.

Corinthians' crowd is famous for their criminal/marginal behavior and it is not the first time it happens with them.

Sadly it will happen again because they are proud of being such assholes. Not saying that the other crowds don't have their idiot members as well, but this club definitely is one of the worst.
