Bizarre Soccer Sync?

Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva died after being hit by a toilet bowl.
"A Brazilian fan has died after being struck by a toilet bowl hurled in clashes after a soccer game in a World Cup host city, just over a month before Brazil stages the event.
Fans clashed upon leaving the Arruda stadium, across town from a brand new World Cup venue.
Some ripped out toilet bowls and threw them at fans congregated below, fatally injuring one, a police spokesman said.
Police named the dead man as Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva."

The A-League "toilet seat" trophy.
Which is weird because my hometown team (Brisbane Roar) are in the Grand Final of the national soccer competition playing for a trophy that has been dubbed the toilet seat by soccer fans in Oz.
A lot of fans even wear toilet seats around their neck making fun of the silverware.
 "Today's A-League grand final between Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers provides two compelling story-lines, with one side offered a chance to make history while the other has a chance to atone for last year's failure.
The Roar go into the game as strong favourites, having won the Premier's Plate by 10 points from their nearest rivals the Wanderers, before sealing a place in the decider with a 1-0 home win over Melbourne Victory."

 It 's weird how the two teams are trying to win a piece of silverware that looks like a toilet seat and the guy killed in Brazil with the toilet was named Paulo Ricardo Gomes da Silva(ware?)!?
I must say that I'm not much of a A-League soccer fan, but I will give this game a watch this afternoon (on TV) and have to say, Brisbane Roar, May the 4th be with you and let's keep it clean and civil in the stadium with no toilet bowl, or toilet seat throwing at other fans.
 And GO THE ROAR!
UPDATE:
Brisbane Roar win third A-League championship with thrilling 2-1 extra-time win over Western Sydney Wanderers.
Also weird was that a Brazilian player scored the match winner for the Roar.

So the Roar result wasn't just a flash in the pan.
