Grateful the Dutch wear underpants

I can't get over this. One thousand Dutch fans were forced to remove their trousers before being allowed to enter the stadium for the Holland vs Ivory Coast match last week. FIFA didn't like the fact that their trousers had a logo from a Dutch beer company, Bavarian, and not the tournament's primary brewery sponsor, Budweiser. I wonder what FIFA would have done if all those fans had worn similar logo-bearing underwear?
