Deadbeat hooligans. Who knew?

From the litigious misconduct file, a court in Gunther Hanses of Brussels, Belgium is seeking one million euros ($1.2 million) in damages from Belgium’s Racing Genk football club, after being beaten by two hooligans after the club won its first division title.

The two hooligans, who have not been named for legal reasons, beat the snot out of Hanses after the man tried to help a female colleague who was embroiled in an argument with the alleged butt kickers. The two were convicted after Hanses was left in a coma for a week and sustained injuries that are still affecting the 28-year-old man.

Problem is, the two hooligans are unemployed (unlike most heathens) and broke, therefore they have nothing to collect on. Team Genk (please don’t ask us what a Genk is) is trying to fend off a claim for the cash.

"We are very happy with the severity of the rulings, but we should not have to pay for something which was not our fault," team spokesman Eric Gerits said.
Note to self: Only pick fights with suits or well dressed BMW owners. They’ll be good for the tab.
