Am i the only one who thinks that its about time the CRE gave it a rest with their Kick It Out campaign?
I mean honestly, how often do we hear racist chants in our football grounds?
Whilst racism should not be tolerated i can't help but think that they are going on about it a bit too much.
It would be interesting to know how much is spent on this P.C rubbish and whether it costs our football clubs anything, when the money could be spent on something more worthwhile, i.e the elderly or children in need.

Sorry but i'm 100% behind these campaigns however much they cost. Ok you might not hear racist comments week in week out but i'm sure theirs a fair few in the ground every week and by having these campaigns it just gives them a little reminder and they might think twice about it.

Admittably(sp) theirs a lot more of it in Europe as is seen in the champions league and UEFA cup when english sides are playing as well as England travel abroad but their is even a small problem in South Yorkshire alone. We had a couple of supporters banned and rightly so just over a month ago after the league game with Doncaster and their was claims after the playoff game between Wednesday and Brentford last season about racist claims against Isiah Rankin, did anything happen regarding this does anyone know?

All this really makes me laugh!

We cannot say something to someone (whether racial or sexual -discriminatory etc) yet the young kids can drink and have sex underage, vandalise grave stones and generally torment and destroy the surroundings and revolt if they do not like the laws of the land or don't wish to get caught by the police and get away with real crime.
You harp on about simple words that might have been said to some pathetic overpaid footballer. What about the Verse "Who ate all the pies" that went on to describe various players.

I have heard some crap coming from so called sports fans yet you all swear and use such crude words that families surely MUST be offended far more than some bloke who, after all gets paid obscene amounts of money for enduring a few racial insults-you can insult me anytime for those wages. Get real

Another poster on another board pointed out that they had been called a 'Brit' and that could well be also described as a racist remark.(considering that you are not allowed to shorten the Pakistani name in a similar fashion as this is claimed to be offensive.)

Please get real and treat life with considerably more common sense than suggesting that spoken remarks should be or are illegal.

It is sad that people with such lack of understanding of the real world as 'politician' post messages on these boards. I suspect that politician has a problem and that problem is that he is a racist.

I think rascist taunts should not be tolerated rascism hurts footballers should be allowed the same privilage as anyone to do the job the best they come it shouldnt matter what race they are, and supportewrs should be allowed to support whom ever they decide to this is a free country.

Politician, what is worse, someone who is racist and therefore is someone who could incite racial hatred or racially motivated violence, or a 15 year old drinking some fosters? Or two underage kids having sex?

Whilst underage drinking and underage sex shouldnt be condoned, what sort of damage do they cause in comparison to racism?

Get a grip lad.

A 15 year old out of control needs parental guidance and punishment to teach them respect.

An adult at a football match is somewhat beyond parental control but needs guiding/punishing all the same for doing something very wrong.

I hear more homophobic comments than racist ones at games, but I doubt the FA would dare tackle that one as it's the big football "no-no" ain't it. Although there's probably no black people amongst the higher echelons of the FA, I bet there's a fair few homosexuals.

If we tell black people that racism is terrible and more serious than other forms of abuse then they will feel greater injustice when racially abused and demand special treatment. This is not fair on normals.

I hear racist chants at football,it all depends on where you draw the line.Wednesday supporters chanting Dingles to Barnsley and them replying withh Dee Dah's could be construed as racist by both sets of supporters!
