FIFA come down hard on Croatia

Postby ratherton » 25 Sep 2008, 13:41

Croatia fans were making monkey noises during their recent drubbing by England. The abuse was aimed at Emile Heskey.

The FA complained and FIFA have taken it very seriously and handed out a £15,000 (less than USD30,000) fine.

That'll teach them. Bet they won't do that again.

I read about this a while back and yeah these so called "fans" are ruining everything and giving real Croatian fans a bad name. In fact I don't even consider these people to be fans, their just retards. There are always a select few retards who give the real fans a bad name.

And this fine is crap, $30,000? Come on. Let's get real. This punishment won't do shit and it certainly won't stop these retards from doing what they're doing.

yea i see the sarcasm in your post, but there have been quite bad racist problems in Europe in small amounts in Italy, A lot in Spain, a lot in Eastern Europe and huge problems in Russia.

Yes, I was being sarcastic.

I also made a serious point in a later post expressing my personal opinion on why FIFA failed to act but it has been deleted.
