It doesn't add up. Port Said's Masry soccer team won 3-1 against its long-time rival Ahly. In Port Said. It was a tough victory, one that Masry won with the support of its fans. The logical question would be, then, "Why would the Masry fans attack the minority of Ahly fans among them?"
From there on, the questions just don't stop. "Why did neither the governor of Port Said nor its security chief attend a game they both normally attend?"( Collapse )

al ahly always win. theyre like the bayern münchen of egyptian football. the "saboteurs" were sure ahly would win and that the pitch invasion that they planned to happen afterwards would be justified. just a bunch of angry football fans. but as one person put it, its like God (or fate, or w/ you believe in - or just pure luck) caused al-masry to win (3-1), just so people can see the insidiousness of this entire mess. because it doesnt add up, and we are not stupid.
