Dear all,

Leading up to the Euro tournament in June this year, I am conducting some research looking at fansí views towards the role of football in response to military conflict. For those interested in this topic, I have created a short survey that should not take up too much of your time: https://doit.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9zZmrJfShOSBDDw

Participation is completely voluntary, but I would appreciate hearing your thoughts on this topic.

Some interesting questions in this survey.

Sadly, I believe that many sports fans, not just football fans, don't care enough about such things as War and suffering of the World's population.

As long as money is pumped into their particular Sport or Club, at any level and irrespective of the source of such money, they are happy to go along with it.

Such is the craving for "success".

First they fascinate the fools, then they attempt to gag the intelligent.

Success at almost any cost would seem to be the requirement for the majority at all levels, even if they are treated as customers rather than supporters, with the end seemingly justifying the means?

Many thanks to those who have completed the survey. It is still live if anyone has a spare few minutes to share their thoughts.

Last shout to see if anyone has a spare few minutes to help me out with this research project.

I've just completed the survey and as already said, some interesting questions.

I think the point of wanting success as mentioned on here is a valid statement.

I also think that when you are a fan of a team, it can cause irrational thinking/behaviour to how you would normally react in another situation.

We're a funny breed, us football fans!!
