After hearing what happened with the beheading/dismemberment of a brazilian Ref, would you be weary of going to 2014 World Cup in Brazil?

I don't watch soccer, but I probably wouldn't go after hearing about something like that!

I love soccer, it's been my favourite sport since I was a kid. But I'm highly upset with sports right now and deeply disturbed by that story.

I've never been interested in soccer, and this doesn't change my view. However, from my understanding, the game in question wasn't part of the national organization. It was apparently a back alley sort of match.

Thats what i keep reminding myself. I'm staying in the touristy areas. You won't find me doing any backwoods tours.

I might be cautious about being a ref, but being a spectator wouldn't concern me. Not that I would be interested in going anyway unless it happens at the same time as Carnival and is in Rio.

Haven't heard about the ref...but maybe if they had more stuff like this I would actually care about soccer.

Did he make a bad call?

Apparently started over a red card. A player assaulted the ref, in turn, the ref stabbed him multiple times (he died), and the family dismembered him/put his head on a spike.

Even if I actually watched soccer, I most definitely wouldn't go after hearing about that.

I'm going. The only things i feel the least bit worried about are being robbed or caught in a stampede/riot.

Thank you. I'll certainly be on high alert.

Wish I could go. I don't even like soccer but would love the thrill of the experience.
