Reports of sectarian and right wing chanting from a section of our support.

There is a simple way to stop this dead and that is for all of us Town fans to shout these proto fascists down. If 6000 Town fans turn on this nasty minority they will shut up. Bullies thrive on being allowed to do what they want to do and crumble when they are resisted.

Sectarianism has nothing to do with Grimsby. And we now have our most multi racial team ever(?).

It`s sometimes difficult to get players to come here and we can`t give black or Irish players another reason not to come.

Stand up to them. Shout them down.

We are Town, not protestant or Catholic, black or white, this or that. We are Town.

Come on, don`t hide behind your keyboard. Post a comment. Tell us why sectarian chanting is acceptable. If you can.

Clearly chanting of this nature is totally unacceptable and should be condemed whenever it rears its ugly head.

But how big a problem is this? When you say "reports" are these news reports or what?

It takes a brave man to challenge or shout down a mob of racists who are quick to violence.

You hear casual racism on a daily basis, especially at football matches and would spend half your life in arguments if you challenged every time.

Starts at the top, and many countries, ourselves included, are governed by right wing parties nowadays, which is alarming and history shows it rarely ends well.

The government spout right wing and racist bollox all the time. It's insidious.

Acceptability is one aspect of it. The one that I struggle with is relevancy? Why us? why now?

I always wonder if they’re just looking for that rise to get the scrap they’re after, don’t understand it at all though so I may be full of excrement.

I suspect it's mainly just that they're drunk/coked up morons.

Congo
Sudan
IRELAND
Pakistan
Sierra Leone

But also want their country back?!?

People like this are what I (possibly unfairly?) imagine most of the crowd to be like at an Ingerland away game.
