Bangers. Fines. Defeat 3-0. : An image analysis of the media reports after the incidents on the terraces during the football match between Syrianska and AIK 2011. (English)
Abstract [en]

In the 2011th Swedish football league three games were suspended because ofbangers that exploded on the terraces. The first suspended match was played by Syrianska and AIK. We have performed an image analysis of two of Sweden’s biggest newspapers, Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter, to see how they reported fromthat incident. The reports from the first incident are important because the mediareporting from the first incident might have determined the attitude of the press and the Swedish football association (SvFF) towards the supporters for the remainder of the season. We have analyzed all the articles with photographs in these newspapers sports section the first, the second and the third day after the incident. We have usedimage analysis as the method for our work, which include analyzing the context likethe title of the articles, opening paragraph and the image text. We found that the reporting from this incident was very similar to what socialscientist Johan Galtung refers as war journalism. The reports were not trying to find solutions instead it intended to point fingers at the persons who they thought was guilty of the incident - sheep goats. It also focused on the conflict and the fight. The reports from the incident were dramatic, and especially in Aftonbladet, which dramatized it with big headlines in capital letters. In both newspapers the supporters were marginalized. Not a single supporter was interviewed in Aftonbladet or DagensNyheter.

Our conclusion is that there is a tendency in sports journalism where metaphors andidentities which emphasize conflict and violence return more frequently.
