Juventus honor Superga air disaster victims; Juventus supporters do not

Not a good look, Juventus supporters.

Sunday, May 4, was the anniversary of the Superga disaster. In 1949, poor visibility led to an accident where a plane carrying the entire Torino squad crashed into the mountain that the Basilica of Superga sits on, killing everyone aboard. Juventus -- Torino's local rivals -- honored the fallen with a banner that read "Honor to those who perished at Superga".

Juventus supporters decided to make a counter-banner of their own, because of course they did. Theirs reads "Equal respect for all in death, but we only honor Bianconeri".

Basically, the moral of the story is that lots of fans are really awful.
