Why three things cries Brazil?

Why three things cries Brazil?
Formula 1

Brazil cries inconsolably. It makes it especially its most emblematic city, Rio de Janeiro, but also the whole country. He does it for three things that should never have happened. It does so because the decline of Fluminense has been confirmed, one of the historical, He does it also because Vasco da Gama has followed in his footsteps, but mostly, because violence is still established in the stadiums six months before the World Cup.

maybe, at the sports level, the saddest thing is the descent of one of the greats of always, Fluminense, Rio's second team with the most titles in Brazilian football with 31 Rio de Janeiro and four Brazilian championships. The upper class team, the team that has had the “doubtful” honor of descending fourteen years later to the second category of Brazilian football despite having won the title - what a strange paradox- this same season. A great, a soccer giant where greats like Ademir have passed, Deco, Santana TV, Jorginho, Romario, Julius Caesar or the current Wagner Love or Fred, that now he will have to consider his return to the elite.

Fluminense has fallen into the pit of Serie B.

Brazil is also sad for Vasco da Gama, another of the classics that returns to the abyss of Serie B. 22 carioca championships, four Brazilians and also hundreds of famous players like Roberto Dinamite, of course also Romário, Juninho Pernambucano, Bebeto, Moacir Barbosa , Ricardo Gomes or Felipe Loureiro. Much name for a strong club that leaves Rio without two key pieces in its fight to prove that it is stronger than Sao Paulo.

Vasco de Gama, another historical one that has been downgraded.

But cry, especially, because violence keeps shaking stadiums. The last show at Atlético Panaerense-Vasco da Gama. A vital game for the visitors that was interrupted at halftime by the fight between the two fans, that left us bleeding images of fights between the two fans and where the police had to intervene with a helicopter and everything on the grass after the local team (sanctioned in his day for incidents his stadium in Curitiba) committed the clumsiness of playing in the town of Joinville without even hiring private security.

One death caused the incidents of Atlético Panaerense-Vasco da Gama.

Bad news for a country that with the World Cup in sight next June has gone in just a few months from being an emerging power to being a state where improvisation (there are the delays in the facilities), violence and social upheaval seem to be our daily bread, no matter how hard FIFA tries to prove otherwise.

And it is that although a few heartless do not justify that Brazil is a violent country, one wonders where is the Brazilian regulation, the authority of a championship to enforce what less than minimal security measures in a stadium, between them, those of logically some security employees with whom to combat such unfortunate episodes.
