A couple of weeks ago, a Boca Juniors barra recorded and released this set of rules for all Xeneize players to adhere to. Unsurprisingly, loyalty and subservience to the Boca tribe are of paramount importance, and they come at the expense of all decency and humanity. For Spanish language speakers, the audio is below. For those who don’t speak Spanish, I translated into English:
“Point #1: don’t swap the Boca shirt with anybody. This shirt is worth too much to swap it.
Point #2: if an opposition player falls to the floor during the game, don’t offer your hand to help him up – especially if it’s a River player.
Point #3: a few times we’ll come to ask for shirts, clothes, kits or money for travel. When we come to ask, give it to us. There are no excuses.
And point #4, the last and the most important: I expect you to leave everything on the pitch. It doesn’t matter if you play well or if you play badly. Give your life, as we do for you. We kill ourselves and we kill other people for this shirt.
All agreed? Anything to say? … Great. Thanks.”
