    I've heard this campaign for many years. I've never heard any racism at a match ever until Saturday. Cardiff vrs Burnley.

    I chicken out and didn't report it. Scared I might have to testify or something and thought someone else might do something. Don't we all think that when it happens?

    We were right at the back of the stand so no one on the pitch would have heard the racist cunt but he called one of their players a monkey twice and one of our's once. He also said something about Barnsely's player thinking the ball was a banana.

    Would it do any good reporting it via the website do you think? Its not like i can give a very good description other than him being white, fat and wearing a pale blue t-shirt with writing down one side. I couldn't read the writing.

    report it anyway, you never know they might be able to ask burnley for the camera evidence or something. particularly if he's known to the club at all. sadly every club has got utter morons like this :facepalm:

    I have heard stuff like that at a rugby match at Ponty, it was about Nigel Walker. I have met Nigel Walker and a nicer man you could not meet, the only thing you could really do is get involved in a dust up and I am not really into that. TBF it was not quite as bad as that but disrespectful

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Gromit Iam surprised by what you say, and have always thought that as bad as our reputation is I have never head racist language go unchallenged. I haven only heard maybe a couple of exmaples in all my days at city, but when it has hapened, usually from kids trying to look hard, they have been slappe down pretty sharpish!

    It is very, very, very rare to hear racist twats at Cardiff, but that doesn't mean that racism has gone away. It exists on every level of British society, but - thankfully - expressing it has been made thoroughly unacceptable at football games.

    I always thought Cardiff had loads of anti-English racists ? :confused:

    Cardiff fans had some proper nutters. I went to the Ninian for a drink on match day, I have been to less intimidating places

    That's not 'racism', silly boy. That's banter. Besides, our manager is English as is a large chunk of the team.

    Nigel Walker is a top bloke. I've been in his house. Well his old house. I used to know his wife quite well.

    It is rare but I guess these were the infamous minority that let the side down. They were trying to get the Shipman song going and I'm glad to say they were pretty much ignored.

    I could spin off endless equally nasty ones directed at Cardiff fans from an equally moronic minority of opposing fans but that's not going to get us very far. At least it's all a bit abstract compared to some of the stuff that went around in the 70s and 80s.

    I'll never forget the muppets of Colchester singing:

    Always shit on the Wales side of the bridge.

    Use of poor grammar when insulting someone only makes us laugh and you look stupid :D

    Report it. At best, they might be able to identify him from cameras like strung out said; at worst, Burnley will be informed and their stewards should be told to keep an eye/ear out for it in future.

    I was trying to work this question out with a mate a couple of weeks ago and couldn't come up with an answer.

    Has there ever been an all black starting 11 in the football league? We reckon wimbeldon would be the best bet but aren't convinced they ever had a black keeper.

    If there has it would be a blinding quiz question.

    revol68 what, fucking what?

    that's brilliant.

    and no it's not racism.

    We've had racism crop up at the Racecourse this season, and on a coach to away games. Hasn't been a problem* at the Racecourse for a couple of decades - Nathan Blake when he played for Cardiff got a load of abuse years ago iirc but nothing since then.

    *with the exception of anti-gypsy/anti-traveler sentiment, which seems to be acceptable. Have heard the chant of 'gypo gypo gypo' towards any player with long hair or an unkempt look too many times.

    There is no point speculating about what the fan did or why he did it, you should all just wait for what he says about it in his programme notes at the weekend.

    Maybe he works in a carpet shop and had delivered two rolls after work. It takes a while for your arms to drop back into their normal shape.

    and that banner is just class!

    6 year bump, seems it's not quite been kicked out yet.

    Raheem Sterling: Chelsea and police investigate allegation he was racially abused

    Not entirely sure, but might be related to this clip that was doing the rounds yesterday.

    Honestly can't tell what the guy in the glasses is saying, although even if it has no racial aspect whatsoever it's still well fucking beyond out of order to subject any player, or anyone, to that level of abuse.

    BBC also reference this post from Sterling on Instagram, where he talks about the press fueling racism:

    Nice :facepalm:
    You have to hope he will get his come uppance for that.
    Thinking allowed, the person doing the filming, we're they filming the match and just happened to catch that or possibly had that bastard been like that for a while and they focused on him.

    Can't be certain, but think the guy who filmed it saw it, then rewound Sky to film it:

    Even IF as he claims he didn't say 'black,' his behaviour still deserves to be called out. Screaming abuse at any player well out of order for a start. But screaming abuse at a black player, live on TV, with the form Chelsea fans have for their racist contingents, shows such levels of fuckwittery - he deserves all the flack really. Sterling isn't even from Manchester for a start.

    Plus, people like him are symptomatic of the inherent problems in football fan culture in this country. This moronic screaming of abuse at anyone who isn't your team, the herd mentality of mouth breathing tossers like this. is one of the massive turn offs for me in football. They fuck up the atmosphere everywhere. The tube, the pubs, the surrounding streets suddenly become all fighty and unpleasant around match day. Why is it only football seems to attract these levels of morons. Granted you get twats with Rugby and Cricket too, but it doesn't even scratch the surface compared to football.

    That coupled with the rest of the modern football machinery, the millionaire owners, the gambling companies slapping their advertising on everything, the corruption and the elitism. It's turned the modern game into something I don't want to associate with at all.
