Well in that case, any chants of that nature. If in doubt, don't sing!

Yet I am fairly convinced that chant is routine at Brighton games or has been recently- if it has now changed to all or nothing then we all know where we are.

It wasn’t that chant though was it?

This is no particular opinion on the homophobic chanting at the Mem, but I firmly feel we are but a few years away from almost everything being deemed offensive and therefore illegal. 

What was mildly annoying in 2000 will be a jail sentence for someone in 2030. There is no end to it. 

Chanting someone has a "slaphead" will be construed as offensive. Pointing out someone is a speccy-tw** will earn you a conviction for hate crime - a new law from 2028 which doesn't allow you to make any comment about someone's appearance.

You might think I'm talking crap, but you'd have said the same about current laws 15 years ago and the relentless influence of social media will see the shift continue.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks the world today is a lot nearer George Orwell's 1984 than I would like.

I fully support the general idea that hate crime needs to be dealt with. How, exactly, is another conversation. But soon it will be a crime to be angry at someone. I can see the scenario - someone spills their pint over you. You impulsively call them an [expletive] idiot. You're in front of a magistrate. 

I say "how exactly" because I loathe the fact that we've decided to categorise some things as more important as others. Offend someone with reference to their race and your career, family life and everything else could be finished. Spout foul mouthed abuse at a disabled person with reference to their disability (I believe that to be even worse) and old bill won't be interested. That is disgusting in my view.

Pretty much agree with this. 

I do wonder whether there should be something to put into law whereby you cannot be offended on someone elses behalf. Basically, it should be up to the person on the receiving end of the abuse that should report it.

I'm pretty sure this would reduce the number of complaints by a lot, and actually leave it up to the genuine victims to decide whether they're offended or not.

Not a bad idea. A bit like most physical acts of violence. The victim has to press charges?

Some of it has been ejected now. Only 3 going down this year ...

That’s very harsh on Bury - they got promoted last season and their fans have gone through hell, so you basically describe them as ‘ejected shite’ - savage ...

Gone for a Burton, as the saying goes.  Poor Saggies, no money, no fans, the worst ground in the football league (and even thats in hock), an Irish manager, a skint board and an owner who supports somebody else.  It couldn't get much worse, could it? Well it might 😃

You think the nationality of their manager is part of the ‘couldn’t get worse’ scenario .... blimey .... we once had a manager who’d played for the Republic of Ireland and we’ve also had one from the North of Ireland, who also represented his country as a player and manager and another who played for Northern Ireland ...

Unless they've changed the rules recently weddings might only be conducted in venues that were permanent structures with solid roofs that were publicly accessible - which if still true rules out most of the House of Tents.....

Weddings is a really good idea as they could wheel the temporary stands around onto the pitch as they could double up as marquees especially with those lovely blue and white canvas roofs which look like bunting if you close your eyes.

It would all look lovely in front of that cricket Pavillion.

Its no surprise they're advertising about conferences, is it. They know all about that as they've recently been in one.

Good to see Gas Legend...the dopester...Darrell ‘appy dayz’ Clarke, doing so well at Walsall.

Better manager than LJ apparently according to the Blue Few and a couple of belters on here.

All went wrong for him when he accidentally sold Matty Taylor for £9.7 million below his valuation. Easily done I suppose.
