    Looking for crazy events in the world of soccer from all over the globe.

    For instance: Like in the Romanian fourth division where the team president of Steaua Nicolae Balcescu plans to ring their field with a crocodile filled moat to keep their fans from running onto the field during games.

    Anyone know any other crazy ones?

    It's hard to beat South America when it comes to soccer wackiness.

    I whole town of about 200,000 in Peru went in general strike, banks, schools and stores closed for 2 days because their team which was in 2nd division and had a good chance of going to 1st division was disqualified because there were irregularities in the signing of 8 of their players.
    The mayor of city was one of the protest organizer.

    In Copa Sudamericana 2002 Bolivar's (Bolivia) bus was stoned twice on the way to Gimnasia's (Argentina) stadium by Gimnasia's fans.
