FILE - In this Friday, March 25, 2011 file photo, Netherlands' national player Erik Pieters runs for the ball during a Euro 2012 Group E qualifying soccer match against Hungary in Budapest, Hungary. Football is awash with and thrives on anger. It celebrates coaches with short tempers and players who yell at each other. It tolerates the idea that fans have a right to be angry in defeat although it sometimes does draw the line when they start ripping out their seats. Football hasn't been a mere "game" for decades, perhaps ever. So there really wasn't any need for Netherlands defender Erik Pieters to apologize for punching his fist through a window, covering it blood as he sliced open his arm and landed himself in hospital.
