River Plate Supporters Handle Relegation With Class By Rioting

After losing a playoff with Argentine Nacional B side Belgrano, River Plate, one of the biggest teams in the world of soccer, has been relegated to the Nacional B, the second division of soccer in Argentina, while Belgrano has been promoted to the Argentine Primera A. Fans started rioting inside of the stadium with 30 seconds remaining in the game, forcing the referee to call it early, but River fans aren't content with some bad language and petty vandalism. Nope, they're making Vancouver Canucks fans look tame and sensible.
