Shame the guy couldn't come out.

However, I have been getting irked about the issue with gays in footy as the conversation is always about the fans.

I think the fans, by and large, will be the least fussed (though will still give him crap when he puts in a bad tackle). The other footballers though are a different matter. Football players are walking adverts for toxic masculinity, the UK are thick as fukk, and the African players will be even less tolerant I reckon

Victor Meldrew Football fans (apart from Cardiff and Leeds of course) are not all hooligans and are no more likely to react to a gay player who has come out than they now (don't) react in an adverse way to players of non-white race.

It is a non-issue.


Yet Kick It Out says that reports of racist abuse went up 43% last season, and of faith-based abuse up 75%. Hardly screams tolerance.

Royal Rother It’s not old hat at all.

It should be but it most definitely is not.

Gay footballers are afraid to come out because they are fearful they will be treated differently by their team mates and supporters. And they are probably dead right.

Talkshite have had phone ins where some supporters have said they would not want gay men playing for their club.

It’ll change but it needs some very brave guys to start the ball rolling.


But it is old hat.
It is now unnecessary for gays to "come out" and make a big thing about it.
Nobody cares-gay pride marches just draw attention to exhibitionists.
The law changed in the 60s, get over it.

Oh look. More ignorance, allied with no empathy.

Don't expect much from someone who on the previous page used the old 'what, are you gay or something?' trope at OMA.

And me.

Vic the bigot writes:
"There ain't no homophobic football fans" immediately before and after making homophobic comments.

It's so typical old white guy/gal bigotry. I don't see a problem or abuse so it can't be happening and they're all just cry baby exhibitionists

I don't think there'll be a problem with the vast majority of fans, and I suspect JMW may have a point that some players may be a bigger problem. But the idea that there aren't homophobic knuckledraggers at games is just mind bogglingly naive at best. Or that homophobic abuse is illegal so it can't be happening. It beggars belief.

I expect Vic will tell us next that there's no gender divide, and women should just get over feminism because he wouldn't sexually assault a woman or pay her less because of her gender. :roll:

If some football fans at Sunday leage level and kids football racially abuse players and refs they will definitely abuse a gay player

Nobody said there are NO abusers in the stands-you really do exaggerate things.
You have written "there ain't no homophobic fans" as a quote and attributed it to me-you really must stop this.
.
Hooray, you have completed the set now by adding sexism to the list of unfounded categories by putting words into my mouth.
You don't know me and, thank the Lord I don't know you , so do cease making stuff up.. you fantasist.
You really ought to get a life Ian before life passes you by.

Another one making things up-poor show but then perhaps you are just mirroring your mate Boris who delights in making things up.

I know you don't go to football matches but you might care to ask posters on here what they hear at football matches.
I don't hear anything racist or abuse of faith and my hearing is quite good.

Victor Meldrew, earlier "Nobody cares" if players are gay anymore even if you do.

Victor Meldrew, earlier Nobody oxf*rd well cares.

Victor Meldrew, earlier Nobody cares if players are born- agains, catholics, muslims, black or yellow so being gay is a non-story.

Victor Meldrew, earlier It is a non-issue with we fans because we just don't care

So?
Nobody cares, nobody cares, nobody cares.
In the eyes of some beholders that is in some way homophobic.
Surely a homophobic comment would be that people do care that players are gay.
There is thick and there is thick and some posters on here (you know who you are) are just thick -the sort that failed exams by not reading the questions and here it is not reading the postings but eagerness to put a particular slant on things to fulfil an agenda.

I heard somebody say the other day that the under 40s (sweeping generalisation) love to be offended on behalf of others-there seems to be is some perverse pleasure derived from being offended.
Such is the case with some suspects on here.

Jesus pfucking Christ Vic.

Dig any deeper and you will be at grand canyon level m9.

I am genuinely sitting here having a shit in disbelief that you said you have good hearing and have never heard anybody say anything racist therefore it doesn't happen.

You are pfucking deluded. This thread is Kes levels of stupidity and ignorance.

What does this even mean? Do you know why there is a gay pride?

Enjoy having a shit-it is usually what comes out of your mouth as one of the thickies that I referred to earlier.
I didn't say that I had never heard racist stuff at football-it just doesn't happen now or at least not around where I sit at the Mad Stad.
I would prefer it if you didn't use profanities (look it up in a dictionary).

Why did you say gay pride was about exhibitionist behaviour?

Of course racism happens at football matches you doorknob. Just because you don't hear it in the mad stad family section around the rest of the middle class cardigan wearers doesn't mean it doesn't happen....

If you go on Google for 3 seconds you will see racism in English football......
Stop sweeping it under the carpet

I have been playing a football game before when somebody called our goalkeeper a n***** and to go back to Africa.

You are a typical ignorant gammon.
