Callous Or Practical?
Yesterday morning seven Chiang Rai United fans died on their way to see their team play Buriram PEA.
12 hours later the game went ahead, albeit after a minute's silence, which was also done at the Thai Port game earlier in the day.
The question is though should the game have gone ahead at all? Given the close relationship that exists between clubs and fans here in Thailand, one of the dead ran the club's website, surely the last thing on anyone's mind, especially the Chiang Rai United players, would have been playing football.
Should the game have been played at all?
