    Default First Casualty of World Cup

    http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=1072298

    A 61 year old South African man who wanted to watch a World Cup football match instead of a religious program was beaten to death by his family in the northeastern part of the country, police said Thursday.

    Malefo said Makoeya got up to change the channel by hand after being refused the remote control and was attacked by his 68-year-old wife Francina and two children, 36-year-old son Collin and 23-year-old daughter Lebogang.

    He specifically wanted to watch the Australia vs. Germany match.

    Lebogang (his daughter) has been released on bail.

    This shouldn't be in Ground Zero either.

    Poor guy though :( I've watched a lot of documentaries on the religious zealotry that can be African (crazy missionaries + local superstitions = bad).

    So are you saying they should realize soccer is more important than God, or that the head of the household should be able to veto everyone else's vote in the family?

    Yes and they should have gotten up and made him a sandwich, gotten him a beer and rubbed his feet like a good family and not turned and set upon him like a pack of rapid badgers

    I think that using physical violence against a sixty year old is a little overboard.
