Irate Fan Throws Pager




MOSCOW -- Angry soccer fans have been known to throw plastic bottles, coins or firecrackers but Krylya Sovietov Samara fans have come up with something new.


The league has fined the premier division side 1,000 rubles ($40) after someone threw a pager at the Spartak Moscow bench after a 3-1 win over the league champion two weeks ago.


"It's certainly a first in Russian football," a league spokesman said. "I guess nowadays we have sophisticated fans going to the games."
