By that token, you may as well say that your dog dying is meaningless because 19 people dying is worse. You're just arbitrarily saying that people shouldn't get emotional about X because Y is more serious.
And on a football forum, of all places.
People can, and do, cry about whatever they want it's a completely subjective thing. I just think it's not worth getting worked up to the point of tears over a Premier League football team dropping points when you don't know any of the players and they don't know you.
