big D.V night tonight peoples..

prepare them icepacks people, between the world cup and the state of origin (aus) there's expected to be a few more battered housewifes around in the morning than usual..

On Thursday morning (Australian time), England play Croatia in the soccer World Cup semi-final in Russia. In England, it'll be early evening, with fans gathering in pubs and living rooms, and police and frontline domestic violence services preparing for a spike in callouts.

Study after study has found major fixtures for some sports are associated with a substantial increase in domestic violence.

“If England get beaten, so will she.”

Holy moly this is a powerful poster from @_NCDV 😔 UK cases of domestic violence go up 26% when England play, and 38% if the team loses.


And in England, there's no bigger sporting event than the World Cup. The national team haven't won a semi-final since 1966.

Whether or not the national team beats the Croatians, Thursday night in England is likely to be messy and violent for many people. According to police data, domestic violence increases 26 per cent when England play. It goes up 38 per cent when England lose.

Sport does not cause violence, but the combination of alcohol, stimulation and emotion may exacerbate existing tensions within a relationship, according to Dr Michael Livingston, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Alcohol Policy Research at La Trobe university and author of the report on domestic violence around Origin games.

"The obvious driver is people drinking a lot and having a stimulating evening and people are drunk and excited and things get a bit nasty sometimes," he told Hack.

"This is especially the case in sports that are heavily male supported."
some people take their sports to serious I reckon.. but anyhow, hope your team wins, or else..

and what are FIFA doing about this you batterered housewifes maywell ask?

well, sweet fuck all really..

or if anything, encouraging it..
What about alcohol?
The link between alcohol and domestic violence is well established. For the 2018 World Cup, Russia has eased its own restrictions on alcohol advertising (introduced to curb alcoholism).

Public health advocates blame FIFA - the powerful world governing body for football.

Ahead of the 2014 World Cup, FIFA campaigned against Brazil's alcohol advertising restrictions, leading to the tournament host changing its own laws to allow the ads.

"Alcoholic drinks are part of the FIFA World Cup, so we're going to have them," FIFA secretary Jerome Valcke said at the time.

"Excuse me if I sound a bit arrogant but that's something we won't negotiate."

Crims

What a bunch of wankers some of you people are.

I would applaud this OP if it wasn't made by, and immediately jumped on, by a complete pair of spanners.

Actually dB the small print on that poster says dv increases 26% when England play, 38% if they lose. So winning isn't great either.
