Vegetarian fan complains about free meat snack

A Feijenoord (Rotterdam football club) fan decided to complain to the director of NAC (Breda football club) for the free sausage rolls (‘worstenbroodjes’) that were handed out at the game last Sunday. The Breda fans were given the free meat snack to comfort them for their team getting kicked 2-0 by Feijenoord.

The Feijenoord fan thought they should have thought of vegetarians, maybe even offered a meat-free alternative. It reminded me of the airplane I took yesterday which offered cheese or pork sandwiches. It can be done.

I get what they guy is saying, but then you’d have to think of obese people, people who have low-sodium diets, gluten-free eaters, diabetics, people with peanut allergies, kosher, halal, and so on.

Surprise: we live in a mostly meat-eating society. Just say no and don’t eat it is also an option.

  1. Cheese? I am lactose intolerant. Cheese gives me migraines. You want me to have migraines, don’t you.

  4. I used to be a vegetarian from that perspective completely agree with the Feyenoord fan. Taking a look from a few more perspective, I’d almost be argueing in favour of a law against giving away free meat:

    – Environmental: Meat production pollutes quite a bit more than other food products
    – Animal welfare: In general, animals who live to be cheap meat live under worse conditions than the ones who end up as high-class meat. Taken that the meat is given away for free in large quantities, it probably wasn’t very expensive to by.
    – Human health: A carrot is just so much healthier ;-)
    – Religion & Such: Muslims don’t eat pork, Hindu’s don’t eat beef, vegetarians eat mo meat at all; but apart from a few jokers – I’ve never met anybody who was convinced in being against eating any kind of fruit or vegetable.
