  1. The fanatical fans were excessive, and caused a riot in the Malang stadium in Indonesia, such a huge rage caused the police to panic and shoot a lot of tear gas, this is the real cause of death… tear gas!!

  2. Ban such big football western style gathering of so many spectators since hooliganism, violence, betting n even match fixing are part of such big football matches! I suggest tear down all football stadiums!

  3. update 219 deaths today
    it's sad tht such thing have to happend
    its speculated happend because 5 things
    1.many fans chaos throwing stuff into the rivals team and the security and goin down to the field in massive numbers of ppl.
    2.the security using tear gas which result to many ppl goes to panic.
    3.the LIB didn't accept the reschedule request by the security.
    4.organizer that breaking the audience capacity limit.
    5.the exit door somehow locked so ppl couldn't get out.

  4. in football matches..the security guards from the police are used to carrying tear gas….with the aim of quelling the tantrums of anarchic fans…the police don't realize the dangers of turning on tear gas at night in humid air … will have a tremendous effect on the victim … … the victims mostly with blackened and bluish faces .. a sign of running out of oxygen
