Feyenoord fans continued their string of intolerable behavior during today's UEFA Europa League match between Feyenoord and Roma. It started with various Feyenoord hooligans rioting on the streets of Rome and has now culminated with fans throwing an inflatable banana at Roma player Gervinho, who is, wait for it, a black man. The head referee has reportedly informed both team managers that the game will be called off if there is another racist incident. Yet more proof that the greatest sport in the world is home to some of the absolute worst sports fans to ever live.
