Just throwing it out there...but in football crowds incite each other, players rage on pitch, managers blame everything and everyone when they lose, players shhh and point to the back of their shirts when they score. All of things exist in fifa. I will feel angry when my team concedes a goal and constantly feel a sense of injustice about everything. Fans gloat in real life moan about how unfair everyrhing is when they lose. These things exist in football and this is a football game so it is any real surprise that everyone (including me) blames the game amd not themselves when losing? Football culture is horrible and it is impossible to have a football game that is realistic and not have some of them negative traits. We are all guilty of it as football fans and followers?
Just a thought...not saying I have formed my opinion on it yet but these are some possible lines of enquiry that I have been thinking about. I expect, but hope I am wrong that, ironically, I will get some personal abuse aimed at me by typical football small-minded people.
