What made Brazil hate Football?

Yes, you read it right. Polls have indicated that people of Brazil (The most enthusiastic football fans) are not happy about World Cup 2014. Percentage of people supporting the tournament has gone down considerably from when Brazil won the hosting rights in 2007.

World Cup has kicked off, and everyone has their eyes fixed on Brazil. Love for the game has brought down fans form all over the world to the arena where teams will contest to prove that they are the best in the world.
Talking about the best in world, one cant keep Brazil out of context. A football team that is very much capable, are good on the form and have the home advantage. But do they really have the home advantage?
Well yes, they do, but not as much as they would have wanted.

A country that worships the game and treat their players as national heroes, and is well known to love the game more than Indians love Cricket suddenly are not so happy with how things have transformed in the past 5-7 years on the road to the Tournament. There were a lot of protests against the Government and FIFA against the Cup threatening to disrupt the tournament. Confederations Cup protests has scaled up the concerns.  Even when the world was watching the opening ceremony on television there were protests going on in the city. But why would that happen? What turned the best football fans people against football?

His Dream Girl

He looks for you, frantically,
and searches for you in the dark.
Oh the pain of not finding you,
knowing, you are around.
A fortnight ago, he met you,
and still remembers you from then.
It was a goodbye but there was some hope.
He is still hopeful as he tries
to draw you on the sand again.
His memory is fading
and so wants to see you again.
But tell me how do I tell the lover in me,
I don't dream anymore.
