The last thing I knew we had laws of free-speech in this country. There is swearing at every game and the minute you get rid of it atmospheres will evaporate. Try as you might it will never happen in sport. Rugby games are not held in libraries and I reserve the right to chant banterous, stupid, good-humoured songs at opposition fans and players, with special provision to disparage KR fans/players/board members.

There are specific laws agains homophobic hatred and it would seem that Cas fans sailed very close to the wind in regards to GT. Until there are specific laws against hair colour hatred I cannot see the RFL having a case against such chants as those from Leeds fans last night.


SOME cas fans

Also - if there was a complaint made do you think they should just sweep it under the carpet as there's no law about it?

Do you think it portrayed our sport in a positive light on the TV?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Please explain sensibly why foul language is required to create an atmosphere?

Freedom of speech is not the same as freedom to say anything you like. I trust that you understand the difference.

Agreed - I'm sure they hear worse than "we can see you holding hands" too so am I righ tin thinking that you disagree with the Castleford fine earlier this week and the RFL should get real?

Nope, I don't know what the chants were at Cas, but homphobia is so 20 years ago. It's illegal and wrong.

Know a lot of Cas fans who are frustrated by this and can see why. Fair enough what you 'apparently' did was wrong, but the RFL have been banging on about the 'RESPECT' campaign for numerous seasons.

The game wouldn't be the same without it's banter, it's how the player takes it. Timmy Street was a perfect example of taking banter and giving some back.

Best thing to do is to take it on the chin and move on. You had a fantastic result today, build on it and stick two's up to them when you get in the play offs.

No no no no no another who has wrote off Bradford's chance of play-off silver.

So Cas were fined for not being sufficiently fashionably modern.

How very gay.

political correctness has causedfar more problems than it hsa solved due to people putting their own interpretations to what has been said. i was called a racist by a social worker for saying let's call a spade a spade during a meeting, the poor misguided fol didn't know that the full saying is let's call a spade a spade not a shovel. i the sarcasticaly appologised for being racially offensive to shovels.

how clever to pick out part of the sentence? and take it completely out of context!!! and by the way there are "no dogs" signs everywhere, so your argument has been shot down before it has begun.

Don't read the Guardian mate. He told Mark Chapman a couple of weeks ago what the chanting was.

He said when he heard it it hurt him.

He said him and the players discussed it and how hurtful it was in the changing rooms after the game.

I haven't read everything on it, but these are things I have watched him on TV saying.
