Dutch fans forced to watch soccer in their underwear

Hundreds of Dutch fans arrived at the stadium wearing orange lederhosen to cheer on their team in the World Cup. The problem? The orange lederhosen were part of a promotion by Bavaria beer and displayed the Dutch brewery's logo. Since Budweiser paid a hefty price to be the official beer of the tournament (ironic, considering Germany is quite well-known for its own brews), fans wearing the Bavaria lederhosen were required to remove them before entering the stadium. The result? Hundreds of Dutchmen in their skivvies.

Here's a quote from the article:

"I understand that FIFA has sponsors but you cannot tell people to strip off their lederhosen and force them to watch a game in their underpants. That is going too far."
Damn straight.
