Weekend Edition: Violence on the field

While much of the world spent the week talking about terrorists in Syria, or Iranian nuclear negotiations, here in Israel, every dinner conversation or coffee date revolved around Football. After a player stormed the field during a game and attacked a Maccabi Tel Aviv player during one of the most anticipated games of the year, spectators are beginning to wonder where the violence is coming from and why it is such a big part of something intended to be a fun team sport. Does this aggression come from other pressures involved in living in Israel, or are there just a few hooligans that should be detained every now and then?
