Soccer Just Isn't That Important When Your Society is Disintegrating Around You
To be fair, I'm sure that Ecclestone cares more about the safety and security of the community where his team plays than about the sport itself. But, the larger point has to be made here--things like sports have to take a backseat to the actual rending of the social fabric. If the country is being shredded by rioters and burned into oblivion, there won't be any point in playing soccer games.
When these riots between have-nots and the police who have been hired by the haves to keep them out of their gated communities come to this country, all bets are going to be off on whether or not anyone will care if the NBA is locked out or if the Dallas Cowboys can win more than five games this year.
