  • Fans Demand Team Stop Winning

    A Brazilian soccer team had not won a game in two years. Now, they've won three in a row. The fans are not happy:

    But far from welcoming this sudden reversal of fortune , some fans claim the club’s roots and identity are at stake.

    Following the latest 1-0 victory against Ferroviário do Cabo, fans stormed a local bar where the players were enjoying a post-match barbecue and beers to demand: please stop winning.

    “This is destroying our history,” said one protest leader, Nilsinho Filho.

    Other fans went on social media to complain, or call for resignations. “This is a worrying situation in the long term. To stop being an icon and to be just another winning team. It’s the coach’s fault,” read a typical tweet.

    Between 1980 and 1984, the team went three years and 11 months without winning a game, and entered the Guinness Book of Records as “the worst club in the world”.

    The club’s Maradona-permed former midfielder Mauro Shampoo, boasts that he scored just one goal in 10 years, and has also criticised the recent victories.“If we keep winning, we are going to lose our brand,” he said.

    Someone should write them and see if they would like to become fans of an American college football team.
