Indeed! In my country someone says that if you don't cheer for the national team you aren't a true patriot. I still have bad memories about being brutally forced to swiftly abrupt my video game session because someone must (they always used the term "must", not "want". This made them look like brainless zombies) watch a football game.
Also, football now lacks any kind of competition and will to rightfully serve your team. Players switch teams very easily and go to the people who pay them more and overall it just became a damn business.
Oh yes, and the majority of the people who go to watch games at the stadium are just crazy and violent as heck. They are responsible for a hell of a havok all over the world.
