The “Ball of Bastards” (BoB) concept is based on the violence associated with the football phenomenon. A website built for the 2006 FIFA World Cup will be the project’s main channel in addressing the aggression and tendency to violence of fans as well as athletes in the football culture. With stylistic devices like satire, sarcasm and a proper portion of irony, BoB will point out grievances but also through comedy, relieve the user’s aggression. With absurd, surreal productions, caricatures and black humor, as well as provocative games and animations, BoB creates an online world that displays an overdrawn image of reality and transfers real violence into virtual space. BoB`s visual style pays homage to Monty Python.

The combination of 2-D design style and classical 3-D glasses is a true novelty in BoB’s visual design - The 3-dimensional effect allows the protagonists to leave the flat screen and become involved in a realistic experience.

During the 2006 World Cup BoB will become mobile in order to visit the scenes of potential violence. Events where BoB will be present include gatherings, parties and installations at football stadiums – the goal of these visits will be to encourage all fans to celebsrate a violence-free football experience.

It does, but as its not properly Python related, have moved it to the Silly section.

How about a site for those of us who couldn't care less about football?

Not an ounce of originality in the site I'm afraid. Just stole TG's style but it has no humour or flair.
