Question by xie: Can alcohol advertisement in sport broadcasting somehow make people addicted to alcoholism and Hooliganism?
Can alcohol advertisement in sport broadcasting somehow make people addicted to alcoholism and Hooliganism? Things like Tiger beer or Heineken’s ads in Barclay’s Premier League. Do those things have the same mechanism of persuading young people who watch football match in TV to get addicted to alcohol?

No and yes, some people have the chemical makeup to be alcoholics and others don’t. What these advertisements do is glamorize the use of alcohol, which makes it more appealing to the younger generation, which in turn makes it more likely they will try it at some point, so if you have the genes for alcoholism it is most likely you will get addicted way before the age of 21. It is the alcohol itself, not the advertisements, that causes hooliganism, people aren’t in their right state of mind while drinking and more prone to do stupid stuff. Some people don’t need to be drunk in order to be stupid though. Maybe we should sue the alcohol companies like we did the cigarette companies. Alcoholism is a nasty disease and destroys the lives of everyone who loves the alcoholic, alcoholics are no better than crack addicts, and the damage caused is just as severe. They drag everyone they love into the gutter with them, they are emotionally abusive, and they destroy the lives of those who depend on them most, like their children and their spouses and in some cases even their parents until they finally die of liver damage. 😉
