Hold on. Why are WE being vilified for making light of a disaster. Should Everton be Vilified as well? One sided as always which brings me back to my point that it boils my piss to see these holier than thou shithouses stick the boot in at every oportunity only for our own fans to steam in an kick us as well! Instead of jumping on the media bandwagon how about backing up the lads that in all likelyhood have saved you from getting a fucking good kicking without you even knowing it.
We're vilified because we're one of the guilty parties in the death of 39 fans.
I understand what everyone who was there at Heysel is saying about how they shouldn't have to feel guilt - but it's another thing to revel if the result of it, which is the net result of the 'aren't we being ironic' chant.
And as for your last line, it's trotted out a lot.
"These people you're calling c*nts....blah blah blah....life-blood of our support....blah blah....first into any trouble....blah blah blah saved your arse many a time".
They're the same thick c*nts that sing Munich chants, Shipman chants and all other kinds of bollox, who love it when it kicks off, carry HJC badges everywhere without any sense of the double-standards, and the only people they save my arse from is other dickheads like them. Just because they go all the games doesn't instantly wipe the slate clean of all the things they do that are wrong. They're either wrong or they're not. How much effort they put into following the team makes no difference when you look at the morals of it. It's like saying "well he's a viscious nasty thick fucker, but he loves his mum". The second half is incidental to the first. We have some sick and stupid twats that follow us, and for me, there's been more and more of them over the last 5 years or so - to the point that now I pretty much steer cleer off our pubs at away games.
"we've had to put up with it for years" doesn't make singing "2-0 to the murderers" ok, and it doesn't begin to explain why we're doing crushing gestures, which is stupidest thing I've ever heard of.
