Go to Support Genocide, Stay for the Soccer

The Wop, over at the sports blog I belong to, posted about a really disturbing sports story in Croatia. Dinamo Zagreb, the Coratian league soccer team, will donate the proceeds of its final game of the season to the defense funds of Croatian suspects being tried for genocide by the UN war crimes tribunal. Mixing sports and politics is just annoying for any reason - but using proceeds from a sport to defend participants in genocide is just apalling.
