Soccer Player Kicks Owl To Death

When in doubt, kick the half dead owl to full dead?
EMPIREsays...

What a fucking asshole!! I wanna kick his stupid little face in. See if HE likes it.

The poor Owl. And they are such beautiful birds...

Edit: I know Anon likes to have nice field days with assholes who abuse animals like this one. If only....

moodoniasays...

If it makes anyone feel better, the owl is reported to be fine, its the home team mascot, although the player involved was apparently mobbed by people chanting "murderer" after the game.

sillmasays...

When I first read about this in the paper, they painted an image of the footballer kicking the bird on purpose, and I too thought "what a fucking death deserving prick", but after seeing it clearly was an accident I think just punching him in the face would be enough.

jesus some of you sure are quick to exact deadly vengeance to a man who kicked an owl. I'd hate to see how you'd react to someone kicking an actual human in the same manner.

is he an asshole? perhaps unintentionally but still arguably so.....but "diaf", "death deserving prick", "kick his stupid face in" (which could very well result in death)? fucking really? the man kicked an owl, he didnt bomb an orphanage! Ya owls are awesome, ya most, probably even this one, are endangered, but at the end of the day its still just a fucking owl, the kicking of which is absolutely not deserving of a lynch mob death sentence. get a fucking clue, damn

I really wish reincarnation were true because your karmic reward would be sweet justice.

Chaucersays...

actually, if you want closely, he doesnt kick the bird like he's trying to kill or hurt it. Soccer players will know a move called 'lofting the soccer ball'. Basically, you are trying to get the ball into the air at your location. If he was trying to kill the bird, he would have kicked it and the bird would have just rolled along the ground. Instead the see the owl take a very vertical trajectory. This would jive with his story that he was trying to get the bird in the air to make it fly away.

He still shouldnt have done what he did though because there are to many idiots out there which would misunderstand the situation and make a big deal out of it.

On a side note that you guys also seem to be forgetting is that owls are very dangerous. They have insanely sharp claws and sharp beaks. I wouldnt want to touch an owl that is confused and have it tear my hand off.

The owl likely died from being hit by the soccer ball which was likely moving much faster than his foot.

Fusionautsays...

I was expecting a stomp to the head or something. I also think the ball would have done way more damage than that kick and the owl seemed injured before the ball hit it. Why was it on the field to begin with? It's not just this player who is to blame. Play should have been stopped so that the owl could have been removed from the field in a safe manner. I think all the players and the officials are dicks in this video for not helping the bird.

Humans deserve a good kick to the head.

Horseshit. You don't kick a clearly injured animal unless you want to hurt it more. I can't imagine any circumstance in which I would think "This creature might need my help. I will, therefore, kick it". But then again, I'm not a fucking idiot fucking brainless footballer.

Chaucersays...

it wasnt so much as a kick as it was a scoop (or loft in football terms). you're right though, you arent a footballer but you are a fucking idiot fucking brainless.

OK. I can't pretend to know what this guy is thinking, or know for sure that sifters who are calling for death aren't just exaggerating a little to make a point. Either way, intentionally hurting a living thing for no good reason should be a serious cause for concern. It's a definite sign that something is seriously wrong with the person doing the hurting. And sometimes, not all the time, but sometimes... all that's needed is a good kick in the face to solve the problem.

gwiz665says...

I would have loved to have been the referee only so I could kick the guy off the field for that. Lynch mob totally appropriate. This guy lacks some very basic decency and while he didn't kick it like you kick a free kick, to lob the bird out like that was wholly inappropriate. Maybe someone should go lob his cherished childhood pet after it's hurt, see how he feels?

He's scum and I hate him.

Opus_Moderandisays...

Most of these comments seem to be from young girls that spent their time in little league picking daisies in the outfield. People run over ground hogs, raccoons and deer with their cars everyday and nobody cries about them. If roles had been reversed and it had been a man that fell on that field and broke his leg in the middle of a bunch of lions, what do you think they would do? They would eat him. Fuck you nature!

Deanosays...

Kind of demonstrates a certain degree of callousness and lack of empathy that I find very disturbing. He killed (most likely) a beautiful creature and maybe when the penny clicks he'll actually feel some guilt.

How many here think he would have even blinked about it unless people demonstrated outrage about this act?

LOL.. dude, that wasn't a scoop. If you've played ANY football, you know that wasn't a scoop. That was at best a chip, which IS a kick. A scoop, you can place your foot right next to the object and scoop it without ANY impact, merely acceleration.

You are talking out of your arse if you're calling that a scoop. I've never heard such bollocks. Clearly not a footballer, nor anyone with any experience with football. You've heard the term before and thought you'd risk using it here.

I'm not necessarily on the side of the owl (i wouldn't have kicked it), but i just want people to know, you're talking shite.

Chaucersays...

you probably sucked at soccer which is why you couldnt perform a scoop properly. anybody that is halfway decent at soccer can scoop a ball up in one fluid motion without having to start right next to the soccer ball. The only people that had to do that were newbies.

Hark at the guy using the word "soccer" telling me about how to play football!

Who the hell said you have to stand next to the ball? Even if you do it at full pelt you still have to bring your foot to almost a stop though mate, the objective being that there is virtually no solid impact between your foot and the ball, just a gentle lifting followed by huge acceleration depending on how far you want to send it. Anyone who thinks otherwise is chipping under the guise of scooping, if your foot impacts the ball instead of softly touching it, you're chipping. This guy did not scoop an owl!

Only shining an even greater light on your own ignorance here, move on.
