First topic message reminder :

Yesterday, in the Arsenal-Tottenham game, Arsenal fans chanted to their ex-player Adebayor, "Shot in Angola, it should have been you." Tottenham fans sang, "Sit down you bad person," to Wenger.

A couple of weeks ago, Leeds and Man U fans sang about Istanbul and the Munich Air Disaster. It's not the minority singing this - these chants can be easily heard on TV.

I could go on and on but really, what can be done to stop this?

Well although Lumbering has done a good wind up job on most in this thread, in the instance of racist chanting in a place like Spain ,any black fan/player should prepare themself for it, this is because racism is part of the fabric of their society. Just like it is in some of the Eastern European countries.

Yeah, I realised it probably wasn't a great example after I wrote it.

Well, to put it another way. I would ask Lumbering to put himself in the shoes of people who lost friends or family at Hillsborough, Heysel, or Munich and ask him how he would feel if he heard opposition fans making fun of those tragedies.

People like him just encourage the stereotype that football fans are stupid, violent Neanderthals.

To be honest dryewolfe, it doesn't look like he would care that much. We just have to accept that everyone has an opinion even the neanderthals that attach themselves to football clubs.

I have no problem with swearing in chants. I have no problem abusing opposition fans. I have no problem abusing referees and opposition players with a bit of bad language. If Im being honest I do all of these at football matches (only when it requires it though - I dont start abusing refs and opp players in the first minute for the saik of it!).

I do have a problem when the chants are racist. I do have a problem when the chants are sick ones about tragedy and death. There is no place for that at all even if it is against the team you hate the most or your biggest rivals.

The racist chants make no sense either. You are abusing black / asian players on the opposition team, but then if a black / asian player from your own team goes and scores, your siniging his name?!?!?!
