All depend on how big he is :boxing  Also getting into a fight could see you get a ban from the ground :(

Who said anything about getting into a fight? :blink:

If more "challenged" these morons there would be no need for a fight. :hammer

Bumped this up to the top after todays events at Cappielow.

 

Early in the second half, one of our "fans" made a racist slur against Quitongo. I challenged him about it. No apology. Then, other fans near me, rather than challenging what he said, rounded on me, comments.  like "he gets the picture", let's move on", and "we've got the pc brigade in here".

So here's a question to all buddies. Should we challenge racism and other discrimination when we see it? And if we should why did fellow buds make me feel like I was the one in the wrong?

Similar happened away to Dundee United last season but it was homophobic shouts aimed at the United keeper. 

No idea of his persuasion but he got it off some of our fans. Someone shouted at them but it continued. 

Have also heard many sectarian shouts at our games. 

All poor and we're no different from any other club (doesn't make it ok).

I've said the same for years yet "we" (Some of our support) immediately point and laugh at any other support who act in an unacceptable manner.

Makes me laugh, in a "god give me strength" way.

Its not really a surprise we dont have an openly gay footballer in the UK, given some of the morons who go to games.

Of course you should challenge that, and we should do everything possible to get scum like that banned from entering football stadiums.

Those around you sound like a right bunch of pricks.

Thankfully I can say I never heard any racist abuse from the Saints support.  I wouldn't think twice about challenging it, and they wouldn't be talking about any PC brigade.  I assume the moment you are talking about was when Quitongo's run nearly took him behind the goal in to the stand, so I can guess who the crowd around you are.

What if the morons decide he didn't like you pulling him up and starts throwing punches at you. If you punch back you are then in a fight like it or not. Easy to say challenged idiots but you have got to consider your own safety.

Then I defend my self and hurt him, in self defence.

Anyhow, if the majority call him out it's less likely he'll throw anything, especially if his close circle tell him to shut the feck up.

Overall today I thought the fans behind the goal were great in supporting the team. Sad to read that some of our support seem stuck in the past on issues like race, sexuality,sectarianism etc. Glad to say that this is a minority.

This "minority" is probably the truth but not as much as is portrayed going by the response to the crowd when someone had the audacity to challenge this moron.

You would still be in a fight and likely get a ban from the ground, oh wait you wouldn't noted

Sad to say it didn't feel like a minority today. The comment was clear, many other people must have heard it, yet no-one else challenged, indeed I was the one who other fans rounded on. Shameful behaviour.

The majority don't want to get involved though.

 

I told my story of the Rangers fans on the train up from Largs on Weds.

 

One guy challenged them and he got shot down. No-one, including myself, was willing to get involved.

 

IMO, it wasn't worth the hassle to me personally.

 

There were a couple of transport police waiting on the station, I had a word. Job done, no danger to me.

 

I applaud folk with the balls to do it, but not me. I'm a shitbag.

Agree and until the majority do get involved this type of embarrassing behaviour that shames the club will go on.

I've 'had words' a few times with some of our support who were making unnecessary comments, and was only backed up by those who were at the game with me.  More often, it was ignored by the others around us or, worse, I was criticised for daring to object to such behaviour.

But you were " liking " the abuse that was getting thrown about on here last weekend.

First of all, calling you a clueless prick isn't sexist, racist, homophobic or sectarian.  Also, I didn't think we could 'love' a post.  I did find Munoz's post appropriate, especially as it was a response to you abusing one of our players.  Or does it not count as abuse when you do it?

Sorry, can't make sense of that.

Go back and read the opening post of the Sammy thread

Just a football opinion.

I agree with those who say that sexist, homophobic, racist or sectarian abuse are disrespectful, unacceptable and potentially ilegal. I agree that as a club we welcome both players and fans with no thought of exclusion. Perhaps the safe and sensible thing to do if it occurs is to officially bring it to the attention of the stewards or police. I agree however that it is preferable that we self regulate ourselves as fans whenever possible.
