'Prosecute' them how exactly? Seriously, how would you prosecute thousands of Chelsea or West Ham fans making hissing noises? What do you think about the clubs being sanctioned if their fans are guilty of blatant anti-semitism? It's a genuine question and I ask only because I'm not sure how it can be argued that a club is directly responsible for the behaviour of it's fans and I'm not comfortable with a club being docked points or fined for something which is almost impossible to control.Just putting aside whether it's offensive or not for a minute, does everyone agree that if we stopped using the term it would be easier to prosecute opposition fans that tried to use it against us at games than it was twenty or thirty years ago?
My last point, this entire nonsense is focused not one word, but one letter. Y. My idea would be to start calling ourselves 'Id Army' It sounds exactly the same but nobody could claim to be offended by it. (That was a joke by the way).
Really, I think we have far more important things to worry about in the world today, like the Coronavirus and Chelsea in a Champions League place above us. We have our OED validation for the Yid Army and that's a great leap forward in my view.
