    Is this just harmless banter?

    Or is it just as bad as racism?

    They aren't actually saying anything negative, only the fact he is ginger which he is well aware of.

    Blackburn fans used to chant this at Samba

    Chris Samba is a big black man
    get past him if you can
    if you try a trick he will make you look a dick
    samba the black man.
    Its not offensive only a observation. Most of the racist chants in football nodays revolve around monkey chants, banana throwing and such. There is a clear negative connotation attached.

    There's alot worse, but I'm not a fan of any kind of derogatory chanting to be honest. I can understand frustration towards your own team, for sure

    All that's wrong with modern football fans. You're happy to show 'frustration' towards your own team and are probably the first to boo, but are vehemently against any sort of chanting towards the opposition, even like this one which is obviously a light hearted joke.

    If you chanting involves saying black and not in a negative way it can't be considered racist.

    If it is. Saying Collaccini has curly hair should be taken in the same context.

    Pathetic tbh.

    If your side aren't putting in a shift, you're fine to vent imo. Whenever I'm sat in Anfield and the side are looking woeful, I have a right to facepalm...

    I don't see a point in swearing and shouting skinhead abuse at other travelling fans / players though, I pay to see the players I support and team I love. Light hearted jokes to players are ok, Lampard's played along with the kop on an occasion or two and had a laugh back.

    Pardon?

    Anyway, you're wrong. If your side aren't 'putting in a shift' it's your job to get behind the team, not get on their backs. It's called support.

    I don't get what you're struggling with.

    Just so you know, my post wasn't even referring to the OP- I'm talking about the stuff you hear regularly at football games towards other fans and players.

    Banter is fine. I don't like abuse. But then there's the stewards that try and make you be quiet in some sections of the crowd for just standing up and clapping. Bit silly really.

    If you think I mean venting by swearing and hurling abuse at them then you're the one wrong. I mean getting up and getting behind them. Being passionate, wanting more.

    What, because a millionaire is being called "ginger"?

    I agree, far too much to handle.
