Football Chants

The NFL has Cheerleaders and firechiefs who yell J.E.T.S...Jets Jets Jets. European Football has hilarious and vicious songs that offend visiting fans and degrade players to levels unthinkable in the US. Yep, Europe wins.

Just The Facts

  1. Unlike in American Sports, European Football fans don't need scantily clad women to lead them in chanting.
  2. When it comes to European Football, even children are encouraged to sing filthy chants degrading others.
  3. Some of these chants are so over the top hilarious that we're pretty sure Eddie Izzard must have writen them.

Cracked on Football Chants

Americans proud themselves on doing sports right. Look at college football where basically even the uber rich get into the game of supporting their teams. Unfortunately that's all at the pre-game tailgate. During the actual game fans basically come dressed in their team's uniform and slap high-fives every time their team scores as if they had something to do with it. Worst yet, at NBA games they play Rap Music at extremely high levels DURING THE ACTUAL GAME ITSELF. We're not talking about during timeouts and such, but when a team actually has the ball. What America really needs is fans that sing really offensive songs to try to get under the skin of the opposing players. Something better then a drunken fan in row one shouting "Yankees Suck." As with our language and society in general, let's just steal what the British do best... football chants. Oh, and yeah, other Europeans and South Americans sing chants just as well as the English fans, but to understand them would require us to be motivated to learn another language and we're just too lazy.
