Argentine match postponed after fans block buses.: Violence, death threats and reports of attempted match fixing have forced the AFA to ban fans from attending away matches to try to bring the situation under control.

Since I moved to Belgium 4 years ago, I've seen some (what I consider) bizarre behavior from fans in the name of team "support," but threatening the team you follow so they'll throw a match to prevent their rival from gaining on the league leader? I can't even fathom it.

Some very odd things are done in the name of football support. Of course South American fans are traditionally madder than European fans I think. But it's absolutely bizarre to read this.

Utterly bizarre, even by soccer/football standards.

Those Argies, they're very "passionate".
