Brazilian club match ends in free-for-all


SAO PAULO (AP) -After scoring the fifth goal in Ulbra's 5-2 win over Brasil in the Rio Grande do Sul state football tournament, midfielder Rogerio Pereira apparently lost his sense of direction.

Instead of the traditional celebration in front of team fans, who packed Bento Freitas Stadium in the southern city of Pelotas on Thursday, he frolicked in front of the fans of the losing team.

Enraged by what they considered a taunt aimed at humiliating them, Brasil players pounced on Ulbra players in a free-for-all with team officials also going at each other with punches and kicks.

The 15-minute brawl ended when helmeted police troops wielding rubber truncheons rushed into the field to separate the two sides. No one was seriously injured.

Ulbra spokesman Edison Torres said on Friday that Pereira didn't know he was celebrating in front of Brasil fans.

Seven players, including two from Ulbra, were suspended from the next round of the state championship.

Torres said the Rio Grande do Sul State Football Federation may consider disciplinary action against those involved in the brawl.

the refwerree in that game was of course Casiba. He can not judge a match without losing it

Because of him Gremio lost a key player for 6 month, and it was just a miracle that no serious fights was generated

Every time he is the referee something happens

the players iof Umbra must have known what happened to Brasil Pelotas, they should be more sensitive.
It is my HO

Now what they ^just needed^was to lose some of the few players that survived the tragic accident

Well, maybe it is not realistic to expect sensitivity of football fans, but isn~t Ulbra a university team? They should have been more prudent
