Racism is not a pleasant experience for anyone and that is putting it mildly .But why the hell should clubs be hit with stadium bans and points deductions because of a few idiots . What the answer is I don't know , but it isn't that .

From the heart but not the head.

I don’t think Antonio’s thought this through very well has he?
The minute you start deducting points then it doesn’t take a big leap of imagination to envisage opposition fans either by their own means or planted by opposition clubs could start to masquerade as fans and essentially bring points penalties on other clubs.

Before you know it we’ll have the PL title and CL qualification decided on the back of a bloke throwing a banana skin onto the pitch or a well-crafted soundtrack added to a video clip filmed on a smart phone.

Stick to playing football Mikhail. How can a club be held responsible for the actions of a few gobshites. Closing grounds and points deductions FFS. Engage brain before opening mouth.
Good points. People need to recover their concept of redemption and see acts of stupidity and displays of bad taste as just that. These days, there is almost a recreational facet of persecution, as soon as someone can be identified as acting in a moronic manner. It seems public shaming isn't enough. A higher punishment must be seen to be awarded.
