Imagine, you're a young ne'er-do-well on the terraces in Brazil. Your free, powerful, you belong to something here that you don't get outside the stadium. So what if it means a few violent scuffles with opposition fans and police, this is what you're here for.
Now imagine you're there in the stadium, things are kicking off (hard to say that without thinking of Danny Dyer 'Real Football Factories') and you're ready sort some geezers out (we'll stop now). You look down and there's your mother starring up at you metaphorical wooden spoon in hand. You'd think before throwing that seat, wouldn't you?
Well that's the dilemma facing some Sport Recife fans after their club hired around 30 'security mums' to patrol the stadium during home games.
According to Aricio Fortes, vice-president of the PR company that came up with the tactic, the club are genuinely taking it seriously with the mother's presence being highlight on the big screens throughout the game.
The idea was to make the most fanatical supporters aware and help in some way to bring peace to stadiums. At the end of the day, no one wants to fight in front of a mother, especially his own.
The idea was rolled out for this weekend's game against Nautico and given that there were no arrests it actually may have had an effect.
