around the world it's a basic fact of life that soccer is more than just a game in Serbia it's more like a war this isn't a political rally these aren't protesters the soccer fans and at least once a year these men and thousands more like them turn the streets of Belgrade into ground zero for one of the most intense rivalries in the world we sent Ben Ferguson to the Serbian capital where the long-standing rivalry game between the country's two best soccer teams has earned a reputation and a name of its own the eternal Derby [Applause] [Applause] we're in Serbia behind us is its capital Belgrade the home of service to biggest football teams parties on a red star when the two come together it's known as the eternal Darby in the 1980s amidst the crumbling of the Soviet Union a wave of hyper nationalism fractured the six republics of communist Yugoslavia among those six territories was the country we now know today as Serbia this division soon devolved into hostility as a new Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic began to militarize within the other former republics of Yugoslavia serbian president Milosevic his decision to send armed troops to the borders of the seceding republics would incite civil war and begin the bloodiest European conflict since World War two the three years that followed were marked by the genocide of thousands of Slavic Muslims in the region at the hands of Serbian forces thousands of ethnic Serbs with in Bosnia also died finally in the summer of 1995 NATO troops lay siege to the region with a full month of bombings and secured a peace

    Most likely the sloppiest video Vice ever did. Map wrong, no Vojvodina, no Kosovo, no Montenegro, facts all fucked up, did zero to no research coming in. Atrociously bad. Interviewed only the leaders of the single worst fraction of Partizan fans. Huge thumbs down, very bad job. Give your salary for this one to the charity, you don't deserve a dime for this kind of junk.

    You, as a sports channel, need to focus on sport, in this case on the derby and fans, don't mix politics and don't change the map of Serbia as you like, and the war of nineties is superfluous in this video.

    I love being American but of course in the intro you have hoaky American pronouncing Derby with er, instead of the ar sound. Derby=Darby. Thank goodness though it cuts to the British fella who pronounces it correctly straight away! I know I’m being petty but I’m sitting here in the dark 6:30 Saturday morning by myself drinking coffee waiting for the Saturday pregame shows and matches to start. LOL. My team(West Ham) doesn’t start til 12:30, but before that I believe their are two other Premier League matches, 1 or 2 Bundesliga matches, and later this afternoon a Serie A match, or two. So on the bright side it should be a great day of football. I won’t be able to watch anything tomorrow because I will be driving all morning heading for vacation. Although today if I can find someone to go with me my home team (MLS) has their season opener Philly Union FC v. Toronto. They still have tickets for $17 behind our supporters goal S.O.B. “Sons Of Ben!!! ( terrace no sitting) which I prefer! So yeah I just need a friend/designated driver to make the hour trek with me lol. Ok early morning rant over!

    “There chanting things like kill the gypsies” but fails to mention that red star fans are referred to as gypsies by the partizan fans….. and two they weren’t chanting when you mentioned it…. Such proganada bullshit at undermining the Serbs for their staunch opposition to your globalist bullshit agenda….. Vice is just a George soros media outlet

    As a representative of a Slavic nation, I'd assume that the poorer the country the wilder its population. Educated and well-off people wouldn't be a part of that mess. It's obvious they don't give a damn about football or the team they root for. The only two things they care about big time: are getting drunk and finding troubles on their asses or at least clubbing someone to death on the way back to a bar. Elon Mask, if you're reading this comment. Dude, could you send all those retarded morons to Mars, the black hole or elsewhere?
