A Call For Decency and an Apology To Tottenham Fans
The nature of some of the responses in the comments section of any article which mentions Tottenham is truly depressing. The dos Santos article was, perhaps, a little provocative, referring as it did to "expensive rubbish" but the fact is, it was a West Ham article asking whether we should bid for the guy. The history of West Ham signing players from Tottenham is not a happy one - we have picked up some 2 carat diamonds (Zamora and Etherington) but most have been 9 carrot vegetables rather than 9 carat jewels - so I say, steer clear!
Then in piled the morons. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy the banter and I enjoy the passion. Tottenham fans are welcome to post here and the rivalry inevitably leads to some barbed comments, but many of the comments are completely beyond the pail. Children might read this site so crudely graphic sexual references are completely unacceptable. The morons who posted those sick comments need to grow up.
However, my utter contempt is felt for those so called West Ham fans who seem to think it is funny to joke about the Final Solution. Get to Auschwitz you hideous retards. Stand in the the one gas chamber that remains and imagine crying mothers holding babies in their arms. Look at the pile of human hair, see the bins of shoes, every size right down to the tiny ballet shoes of a two year old. Look at the photographs of the victims, stare into their eyes and imagine. These "jokes" are truly obscene and have no place in our society. The comments are not funny, they are sick and anybody who thinks they are appropriate needs help. It is not just the Jewish victims you are insulting, it is every hero who fought against Hitler and the Nazis. That might include your parents or grandparents you fools.
Kick racism out of football? I would like to kick this mindless scum out of society. And before you say Tottenham fans call us Pikeys, yes they do, and yes that is stupid and childish, but it is not in the same league. If you can't see the difference, you must be morons.
West Ham as a club should be now take a stand. The hissing to simulate the Gas Chambers at White Hart Lane must stop. If I was the team captain, I would lead the players from the field if I heard it. CCTV should be used and the fans responsible banned for life.
I will finish by carrying a comment left by El Martillo which sums things up nicely. My final comment is that people should think a little about the bigger picture and to apologise to Tottenham fans for the moronic grunts of the animals who participate in this.
"The constant one-upmanship between Hammers and Spurs fans reminds me of two thirteen year old boys arguing about who has the bigger willie, whilst a mature woman watches with a smile that says "you've both got some growing to do before you get into my bed". The fact of the matter is that we are both in the second tier of premiership clubs.
Rivalry is an important ingredient in competitive sport, but the ability to feel hatred with the same passion as to feel love is perhaps a sad reflection on modern society. The inability of many of the posters to convey that passion without aggression, racism or crimes against the English language speaks volumes."
