Default Fan Rioting At 2013 Greek Cup Final In Athens

This is the saga of the 2013 Greek Cup Final.

First, as Olympiacos players were warming up, a flare was thrown by Panathinaikos fans onto the court. It hit Olympiacos player Kyle Hines in the head and burned off part of his hair. Flares were being fired across the arena and burning the seats. Also fans ripped some seats out of the arena.

Hines had to get medical attention. The referees of the game, when Olympiacos ownership told them that under the rules, the game could then be cancelled due to safety issues supposedly said, "we didn't see anything".

Hines was laid out on the floor with a concussion in the middle of the court for some time........

The next thing that happened was, after the game started, a fight broke out in the stands between Olympiacos and Panathinaikos fans. Each team was only allowed to have 1,000 fans each (in a 16,000 seat arena) for security issues.......

But, despite this, some fans managed to elude the security and a fight broke out in the stands.

Then, some fans entered onto the court and some got in fights with the police at the game.

The next thing that happened was that an Olympiacos fan, whom evidently writes for one of the Greek sports papers, brought a shank onto the floor and was seemingly threatening people with it.

Some Olympiacos fans, in retaliation for the Hines injury, threw objects at the Panathinaikos players, and hit Panathinaikos player Michael Bramos in the arm with a knife. He was injured.

The game was delayed for quite some time, as the players left the court for safety reasons.

Then, all of the 2,000 fans in the arena were ordered to leave by the police, so that the game could be played in an empty arena, again for safety reasons.

Then, after the game resumed, the owner of Panathinaikos, Dimitris Giannakopoulos, apparently began shouting threats and swearing at the 3 refs. He was supposedly heard because the arena was empty with all the fans gone.

He was supposedly heard telling the refs that if they did not call the game in favor of Panathinaikos, that they would pay from the fans when they had to enter into Panathinaikos' arena again, and that the refs would be attacked in their own homes, as happened to a ref just recently.

Just recently, he had reportedly gone into the locker room of the refs and implied that they would be physically attacked if they did not call the next game (this one) to his liking.................one of the refs filed a complaint that his house was then attacked right after this and that Panathinaikos fans threw rocks through his windows.

Some journalists also reportedly complained that the Panathinaikos owner threatened them.

It is also reported that the uncle of the owner of Panathinaikos (who is about 80 something years old), extremely and severely yelled, swore and threatened Vassilis Spanoulis during the game.

Then, after the refs of course seemingly rigged the game, by doing things like calling shot clock violations that were not, or not calling ones that should have been, not letting any players guard Diamantidis the whole game (Acie Law told the press the refs called a foul if you even came near Diamantidis and he said, "I saw fear in the eyes of the refs if they did not call a foul to who was guarding Diamantidis"), a technical foul given to Perperoglou after he stole the ball from Diamantidis, that didn't actually happen, an illegal basket being counted by James Gist, when he hung on the rim, pulled himself up, and dunked, etc.......

The players of Olympiacos got so pissed off that they left the court, only after their owners told them to. They reportedly wanted to stay on the court and demand the refs explain what they did. They then reportedly went to the locker room and refused to come out for the award ceremony, which is required under the rules.

Instead, they supposedly went to the refs' locker room. Supposedly, the refs were told by the Olympiacos players that they know they rigged the game. The players were said to be enraged and furious and yelling at the refs.

The refs left the arena and would not talk to reporters.

Then, the Olympiacos owners filed an official objection against the refs.............

The coach of Olympiacos, at the press conference, talked about the owner of Panathinaikos implying threats to the refs to attacks in their homes, and that there was like a climate of terrorism to his players during the game.

As if all of this was not enough, Sofoklis Schortsanitis (Panathinaikos player) supposedly said that he would kill Pero Antic (Olympiacos player) the next time he sees him. Not to be outdone, the coach of Panathinaikos, Argyris Pedoulakis, reportedly shouted a slur at Antic.

The Panathinaikos owner said that he wanted to file charges and "have a judge to punish the filthy club Olympiacos" over Bramos being hit in the arm by a knife.

The object that hit Bramos was a knife and Hines didn't get a concussion.

Hines did get a concussion. Olympiacos' coach said after the game that the player had a concussion.

Well at least that game finished

Yesterday Partizan and Red Star played in Serbian Cup finals and game was stoped in the 3rd quarter and it will be continouted today .

As I heard some Red Star fan tried to set Partizan flag on fire so Partizan fans grabbed him and started beating him so Red star fans started runing on the court to get to the idiot that wanted to set the flag on fire . Game was stoped and police made some fans to leave but there were a lot of fans left in the arena so when players got back on the flor and started warming up head coach of Partizan Dusko Vujosevic came to that side of the court and some people started throwing things at him so Djilas ( president of Serbian basketball federation ) decided that game shoudn't be palyed and that it will be played next day without the fans .

That's the proper thing to do in such situations. For the refs to stop the game. What happened in Athens was an absolute disgrace, with the refs allowing all of that to happen and still playing the game.

There was shit at Serbian Cup finals yesterday as well, I guess our idiots wanted to prove they are as idiotic as Greeks...

Edit:

Just saw FIBA's post above me, I know fans create great atmosphere to play here, but a lot of them think that they are bigger than the sport itself...

Typical thugs / classless people. How do they expect to pay for those damages? Greece can barely afford water at this point.
