It's probably more to do with being a lot lower down the leagues now.

Not sure about that really. The PL era didn't just happen over a few weeks, it happened over several years giving a euphoric but not totally unexpected feeling. This has come from nowhere. People have stopped saying they come from 'near Leeds'. ...at least for now ;)
Its great!!

There's an awful lot wrong with soccer but it is the world's community game.


Lol!

A number of community activists from the Leeds United community have just had their activities acknowledged with a reward of time at Her Majesties pleasure.

Has no RL follower ever done wrong? I'm pretty certain some RL fans have done a stretch in chokey, including some of the players. You can't just pick the bad bits out. If RL was as big as soccer, there would be many idiots following it too.

What do you think about the way that the game has united the community in Bradford in a way that decades of political interference has never managed?

Zenit fans were on BBC News this morning basically saying without any hesitation or guilt that their fans do not want black players in the side, they will not have them in their team, in fact it's "tradition" according to them. If I were Rogers I'd keep certain players out, get through the game and then get the hell out of there. But I know that isn't the right thing to do.

Much as I'd like to believe that all Leeds United fans are thus implicated as being criminal #### (that is what you're implying presumably?) I'm afraid I know too many of them who don't fit your rancid generalising picture.

They also seem to be the first soccer team for a lot of rugby league fans. Want to unite Cas and Fev fans? Get them talking about Leeds United.

They've produced a manifesto that basically says, "No niggers, no homos."

Coincidentally, Beitar Jerusalem are having the same debate about whether Muslims are welcome in their 'Jewish' team. They have decided that they are.

Soccer is rotten from top to bottom you see.

That's because they are racists. That's not the fault of soccer.

True. But it's what's bringing them together and pushing them into the headlines today. I wasn't arguing either way, I'm just saying these c"nts are gonna be out in force at the game today.

Yes they are but if it wasn't football it would be something else they were gathering for.
RL is sadly not immune from racist fans, not widespread by any means but they exist.

Soccer is one of the last bastions of homophobia. Even worse, they even class people as beneath them (gay, obviously) if they engage in obviously gay activities like reading books. Have you seen the news today?

Err, nope. Not yet, some waffle on sky sports news about the back pages, Arsenal, Chelsea, boo hoo. What's gone on?

well these people are attracted to it and feel at home in it and that goes back many years, even from boardroom level and beyond. Nothing was ever done about it and now its part of soccer culture, including the kind of hate filled behaviour that spawns the runway of death song and many other vile expressions
These people are not a majority, but they are an ingrained and vociferous minority, there transcend age and class.

Rugby League has its bigots, but has always been open to all, and has a tradition of not tolerating this kind of behaviour.
