Are they right or sucking the joy out of the game for fans?

I had exactly the same argument with a bell end on FB who said the person who called Gerwyn Price a ‘sheepshagger’ should be jailed for racism.
I told him City fans call ourselves and get called sheepshaggers week in, week out and it’s not remotely offensive.

He then shared the definition of racism and said he found it ‘incredibly offensive’ and said it was the same as calling a black person the N word!
I just called him a whiny c**t and left it at that.
What the fuck is wrong with them?

Fuck knows how these people would cope with something real to worry about in their lives.

I often wonder how they deal with any real life issues. Probably hide away in their safe spaces and let someone else sort their shit out for them.

The thing I’m wary of with some chants is it can give sections in authority a stick to beat us with, like that muppet who said safe standing encourages racist chanting and cocaine use. Football fans are still looked at as scum by some, which is how we end up with the stupid situation where we can sit and watch the match in a poorly ventilated wine bar, but not in a stadium open to the elements, or the abject terror you would think the people of Bath faced when we played there pre-season. It’s like we have to behave twice as good as people going to rugby etc

Are these chants a bit of fun banter for the fans or should they be stopped?

On the one hand I can see their point but in reality I wonder if these people will ever be happy and where does it end?

The football experience for fans is becoming more and more sterile by the season and these guys won't be happy until fans are sat down politely clapping, not allowed to make eye contact with opposition fans in order to avoid triggering them.

Personally I don't like the "feed the scousers" chant. It's basically taking the piss out of working class blokes, just like us, who have been impoverished by the same Tories that most of us on here detest.
In the same way, I can't stand the "land of your fathers" chant aimed at the jacks.

That said, we need to be careful not to over-sanitise the game and I am certainly not wild about the idea of social media campaigns to proactively moderate chants.

Hasnt quite got the same ring to it Cardiff City fans chanting it - as opposed to say Chelsea fans - when you consider South Wales is hardly an area paved with gold.

At a time when foodbank usage is at an all time high and is only going to get worse with the cost of living sky rocketing, I think the chant is a bit crass and outdated.
