Fans banned over 'homophobic' chanting

Bournemouth Echo: ORDER: Goldsands Stadium ORDER: Goldsands Stadium

TEMPORARY banning orders have been issued to two AFC Bournemouth fans following an incident at the Cherries’ last match against Brighton.

Details of the incident have not been released but it is believed to have related to homophobic chanting or abuse.

Dorset Police said they reviewed the evidence and deemed it not substantial enough for further police action but it was serious enough for the football club to temporarily ban the two offenders.

AFC Bournemouth has confirmed that, in total, three individuals are currently going through the club’s disciplinary procedure following complaints from supporters made in the past month.

If the allegations are proven then these fans are likely to receive a long-term ban from attending games at the Goldsands Stadium.

However, some supporters have questioned whether the club and police are doing enough to stamp out problems. Cherries fan Robin Latchem, who sits in the North Stand, said he was disturbed by the homophobic abuse he heard at the match with Brighton.

He said he asked a steward why nothing was being done and said he was told the strategy was to monitor problems and take action later.

“While I am pleased efforts were being taken to tackle such abuse, it is odd that this particular strategy is being carried out since, by definition, none of us knew the authorities were interested and the message for 90 minutes was that it was being tolerated,” he said.

Dorset Police said they could not disclose details of police operations but dealt with all football-related disorder and antisocial behaviour “robustly”.

And AFC Bourne-mouth said: “The club is delighted by supporters’ ongoing willingness to help bring offenders to its attention by reporting any incidences of discrimination or antisocial behaviour.

“For AFC Bournemouth to collate evidence swiftly and efficiently, the club encourages supporters to report any incidents on the match day itself.”

The text number for anyone wishing to report abuse is 07968 980580.

This is disgusting
Why is it permissible to chant to a referee that he is a person who plays with himself but it is not permissible to chant some homophobic garbage?
I would not take my wife to a football match because of the filthy language that is used there.
What sort of double (or triple) standard is being applied here?

I'm guessing innacurate generalisation is your specialist subject?

You'll probably find a higher percentage of dark ages homophobics and racists in these comments sections than at Dean Court. Start counting now, and you can start with the first post!

2 offenders actually reprimanded. Would you like to take a stab at estimating how many football fans are actually homophobic, ignorant, racists?

There's a reason that films like Green Street exist portraying football fans as the scum of the planet. Art imitates life.

You'd never see this behaviour at Twickenham.

I guess the fact that I stated that I have a wife put me at odds with you.

As a football fan of 45 years attending over 1000 games I take great exception to you classifying me and my fellow supporters as "the scum of the planet". Its rather enlightening that you form this "educated" opinion on a violent fictional film that you saw.
I don't suppose you will have the guts to apologise to the millions of decent well behaved football fans in this country that you so casually insult..............

Why would I apologise? Where are all these well behaved football fans? Seems all I ever read/hear about is another football fan riot, another footballer court case for drug use/rape/assault.

The world would be better off without this 'sport'. If you can call kicking a ball about a sport. That's hilarious within itself.

I have been a Cardiff City fan since for so long I can't remember. Welsh Rugby the same and can quite understand the comments about bad language at football matches and how films contrast that to behavior at rugby matches.

Quite simply the chants at football grounds would't be acceptable anywhere else but there, and then only because the vast majority of football supporters choose to turn a deaf ear.

So instead of misreading other posters posts and getting on high horses why not open your eyes and see the football world for what it is: homophobic, racist, illiterate and extremely poor at expressing itself verbally and hapless in its understanding of the very pivotal roles referees play in the modern game's linguistic discourse.

I will tell you where all these well behaved football fans are, they are at hundreds of grounds, league and non league, watching all levels of football from under 8's to the Premier League all over the country. Enjoying a sport and supporting their team or their child playing for fun.
If you cannot understand that and would instead base your opinion on a fantasy film well that is your problem not mine.
Interesting you don't class football as a sport because it involves a ball yet you are quite happy to cite Twickenham as a place of virtue - I thought Rugby also involved a ball - or perhaps you think you know better.............

It amuses me that you have 'Hammer' in your username. West Ham fan are we? No wonder you're so quick to defend, your club and it's fans are responsible for the majority of football hooligans.

Go back to London, quite what you're doing in Bournemouth I don't know.

And regarding rugby vs football: When was the last time you saw a rugby fan riot? Or a player fall over because someone looked at them? Rugby is a professional sport with respectable fans. Football is a 'sport' for princesses who are given too much money.

On the same vein - "Why is it permissible to chant to a referee that he is a person who plays with himself but it is not permissible to make monkey noises and throw bananas at black players?" Do you think that would be acceptable?

Discriminating against someone and then chanting derogatory chants at them based on their sexuality, race or religion is wrong.

Nobody gets discriminating against for touching themselves unless they do it at an inappropriate time (e.g. by a child, on a bus, etc).

The last line of your comment says how wrong you are.
If you are a referee you only have to make an unpopular decision to get abuse.
I was raised as "that Irish woman's kid".
I learnt how to fight at a very early age!!!!
I defend the oppressed, not the people who go out to offend.

2 offenders actually reprimanded. Would you like to take a stab at estimating how many football fans are actually homophobic, ignorant, racists?

There's a reason that films like Green Street exist portraying football fans as the scum of the planet. Art imitates life.

You'd never see this behaviour at Twickenham.
As a football fan of 45 years attending over 1000 games I take great exception to you classifying me and my fellow supporters as "the scum of the planet". Its rather enlightening that you form this "educated" opinion on a violent fictional film that you saw.
I don't suppose you will have the guts to apologise to the millions of decent well behaved football fans in this country that you so casually insult..............




.
Why would I apologise? Where are all these well behaved football fans? Seems all I ever read/hear about is another football fan riot, another footballer court case for drug use/rape/assault.

The world would be better off without this 'sport'. If you can call kicking a ball about a sport. That's hilarious within itself.
Casually Dressed, Why bother coming on here and commenting on a topic that you really don't care about and know even less about. Stick to your knitting....
It amuses me that you have 'Hammer' in your username. West Ham fan are we? No wonder you're so quick to defend, your club and it's fans are responsible for the majority of football hooligans.

Go back to London, quite what you're doing in Bournemouth I don't know.

And regarding rugby vs football: When was the last time you saw a rugby fan riot? Or a player fall over because someone looked at them? Rugby is a professional sport with respectable fans. Football is a 'sport' for princesses who are given too much money.
What I am doing in Bournemouth is living here and have done for many years. Yes I was born in east London but would you be so quick to tell me to go back to Poland if I was Polish or India if I was Indian? As for West Ham being responsible for the majority of hooligans you really have been influenced too much by Green Street haven't you.

In a rather back to front way the PC 'police' banning of these two fools seems to add to the credibility of their stupid chanting

I am fairly sure the majority of gay people are not taking the slightest bit of notice of these idiots and are probably happy that these stupid chants are being aimed at a section of society adult enough to ignore them - instead of being aimed at a truly vulnerable group who might really be frightened and offended.

As research and experience has proven countless times those ignorant folk who hold serious homophobic views and especially those who feel a need to vent them vocally usually have a big issue with their own sexuality - remember that next time you see and hear them!

Unlike virtually everybody else who's posted on here so far, I was actually at the match last Saturday and I heard just about nothing that I could describe as Homophobic. I sit on the left hand side of the North Stand between the two main groups of fans who sing so if there had been any I wouldn't have missed it. The worst I heard were a couple of half-hearted choruses of 'We can see you holding hands' which is more daft than offensive. There was a guy, however, who was escorted rom the East Stand during the game who was right up near the Brighton fans so he may well have been shouting something at them.

Calm down people. Has everyone missed who we were playing last week???
I was at the game with my son and as always there is banter with the away supporters as a whole,not one individual. Any chanting is based on where the fans are from.Will there be arrests next time we play our Welsh cousins for "**** chanting"? I think not.

So according to CasuallyDressed Art imitates Life (I love people that talk in cliches!).

So we have been taken over by killer Terminator robots and we are also currently exploiting another planet inhabited by blue aliens for its mineral resources. The antichrist has been born and his name is Damien and eventually the planet will be run by talking monkeys.

Or there is another explanation - CasuallyDressed needs to grow up and stop acting like a playground bully!

Very simple. If all well behaved football fans were reported in the news, there would be no room for anything else. Bad behaviour is reported because it is the exception and, therefore, by definition, news. Perhaps you also think that all planes crash because we never hear about the ones that land safely.

Football, society and my own self has moved on over the last 25 years. Last time I recall going to the then Goldstone Ground hudreds if not thousands of visiting fans chanted "HIV Positive" etc all the way from the station and back - people thought it was funny....

So today the fact that everyone on here whether a football fan or not is condemning a couple of troglodytes for this kind of chanting is surely a sign of significant progress.

Still work to do mind you but I will bet a tenner that the next few years sees a top premier league player come out.

No matter how many aeroplanes fail to crash the average football ground will remain infested by a core of foul mouthed vermin politely ignored by the rest of the crowd.

If all well behaved football fans were reported in the news, there would be no room for anything else. Bad behaviour is reported because it is the exception and, therefore, by definition, news. Perhaps you also think that all planes crash because we never hear about the ones that land safely.[/p][/quote]That is nonsense. If society, each and every one of us were reported in the news there would be no room for any thing else ... like crime'? No matter how many aeroplanes fail to crash the average football ground will remain infested by a core of foul mouthed vermin politely ignored by the rest of the crowd. stalisman

You'll probably find a higher percentage of dark ages homophobics and racists in these comments sections than at Dean Court. Start counting now, and you can start with the first post!
2 offenders actually reprimanded. Would you like to take a stab at estimating how many football fans are actually homophobic, ignorant, racists?

There's a reason that films like Green Street exist portraying football fans as the scum of the planet. Art imitates life.

You'd never see this behaviour at Twickenham.

As a football fan of 45 years attending over 1000 games I take great exception to you classifying me and my fellow supporters as "the scum of the planet". Its rather enlightening that you form this "educated" opinion on a violent fictional film that you saw.
I don't suppose you will have the guts to apologise to the millions of decent well behaved football fans in this country that you so casually insult..............


.
Why would I apologise? Where are all these well behaved football fans? Seems all I ever read/hear about is another football fan riot, another footballer court case for drug use/rape/assault.

So if we are banning everything if the participants are accused or falsely accused of rape etc I guess coronation street should be banned and all kinds of music, any violent films, the news, books, definitely the internet with all that saucy goings on, the pub. What would we end up with ???? The 1800s, 1700s

It is my 'right' as a free man in the free country of my birth, to hold an opinion that is different to the government's propaganda.

If sodomy is so okay why did God estroy the twin cities of Sodom and Gomarrah because it's occupants were homosexual?

It is your right to choose not to believe in God and His laws but it makes no difference, you will still be judged by Him when you die whether you like it or not!

Anyone can, and should, report any homophobic language or abuse they hear or observe to the local police. It may not be a hate crime but it will be recorded as a hate incident thus allowing police to record that there are problems in the area. You can call 101 at the time it is happening (i.e., during a football match from the stands) or later afterwards. You do not have to give your name or information if you do not want to do so. You can also report it online at www.dorset.police.uk by going to 'Victim of a Crime' and then 'Hate Crime' in the sub-menu. You can go there now and report anything you have observed recently at a football match.

You should report any and all hate incidents and crime, even if it is just words that are said. Hate incidents or crimes in any of the following should be reported:
•Disability
•Race or ethnicity
•Religion or belief
•Sexual orientation
•Transgender identity

Don't let hate hurt others. Report it.

Religion is the very source of this gay hate - and so much more that is wrong in the world. The best place to learn destructive prejudices and to hate others is in religions - just check the God fearing quotes and comments from the ignorant bigots above!

Hope you have a good defence lawyer, because you will need it.
As a 62 year old, I have supported this team for 50+ years, and will not have my personal integrity challenged by someone who has watched a 'film' and tarred us all with the same brush!! Libel is a serious offence!!

Government 1, public freedom 0
You know, why we continue to wrangle over, not whats said, but the context it`s taken in, we continue to run down this dark path to a point where we will become fearful, frightened and isolated, a population any Government would view with greedy capitalistic eyes.
Count up every day where you have had to think hard before you say anything, and, no, I,m not talking about that which we know is inherently wrong, but the simple things where we try to think of how anyone else may take it first, the small little things that are innocent.
Look around you at the state we have allowed ourselves to slide, the drop in morals, in social interaction, the disregard for one another, the inequalities between those that do play by the rules and those that choose not too, and then weigh that up against all the energy we place in a word that the listener has taken umbrage at, but was not sent out in the vehemence in which it was taken.
There`s much much bigger issues that command our focus before we all become the `thought police`.

I am a season ticket holder in the North Stand. I was at the match, and distinctily heard the chant of 'Q***r bunch of f*****s' played out once. Was it the whole home attendance, or the whole NS? No. Was it about 20 morons near the back? Yes.

I, among many others who heard it, thought it could only be offensive and not 'banter' per se and did not join in.

As for the suggestion that all football fans are animals, this is just as offensive as the chant that caused this whole issue. Some football fans are idiots who give the rest of us a bad name, but most of us are decent folk who come to watch our team, cheer them on and see our friends, not to go looking for fights or to abuse people. You only see the idiots make the news because as said in an earlier comment, who would really care about an article that said 'football fans attend match, cause no trouble at all' over one about disruly fans?

Some football fans are idiots who give the rest of us a bad name, but most of us are decent folk who come to watch our team, cheer them on and see our friends, not to go looking for fights or to abuse people. You only see the idiots make the news because as said in an earlier comment, who would really care about an article that said 'football fans attend match, cause no trouble at all' over one about disruly fans?

It may not be a hate crime but it will be recorded as a hate incident thus allowing police to record that there are problems in the area. You can call 101 at the time it is happening (i.e., during a football match from the stands) or later afterwards. You do not have to give your name or information if you do not want to do so. You can also report it online at www.dorset.police.uk by going to 'Victim of a Crime' and then 'Hate Crime' in the sub-menu. You can go there now and report anything you have observed recently at a football match.

You should report any and all hate incidents and crime, even if it is just words that are said. Hate incidents or crimes in any of the following should be reported:
•Disability
•Race or ethnicity
•Religion or belief
•Sexual orientation
•Transgender identity

Don't let hate hurt others. Report it.

Blessings,

What book do you follow mate?? The Bible says it's a sin!

You can't just pick and choose the bits you like. The Jedis have more credibility than you!
.
People have been picking and choosing which bits of the Bible they like for years, when was the last time anyone stoned a sinner to death or had someone executed for shaving (banned in the Bible) their face?
I don't think the bible encouraged stoning for shaving!

This guy's just made stuff up that suits him and calls it a church. It's like Scientology

‘No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.’ -Nelson Mandela-
