    I know the standard excuse is 'its not fair on the rest of the fans' but fuck that. If England fans were doing that, I would welcome us being booted out of the competition.

    Just get rid of them for the remainder of the tournament.

    It genuinely boggles the mind how difficult they make this. Chat shit, get banged. It's the only way they will learn.

    And the level of fine given to those who are guilty. It's just a nonsense. Same amount for racist abuse as a minor admin error

    The focus on Sterling is so unfair, as an aside. There will again be a load of press questions for him. He's just a fucking 24 year old kid who plays football, the expectation for him to "represent black players" is, in itself, racist.

    Ahh, football, you utter cunt

    Bendtner got a heavier fine for wearing pants with the branding of a betting company who weren't an official sponsor of the competition than you'd get for open unashamed racist abuse

    The irony being that our racist press have probably prepared him for being that as well as anyone else.

    When you hear him speak now he's really actually pretty thoughtful and eloquent.

    'Sterling seen laughing while shopping after racist taunt match.'

    That's my Daily Mail article headline prediction.

    A fair play, itís not the same salute though is it? Regardless - Bulgaria should be banned, this was their detention game and they were even worse.

    Plus to this is that it shows how blatant people are about this when commentators are saying progress is being made. Sterling only has to order anchovies on his pizza and heís automatically worse than John terry and fucked Rooney up the arse when he was shagging a granny

    They're saluting the Turkish armed forces. Its unsavory at best and I'm fairly certain against Fifa rules on political statements

    Wankers.

    As are the BBC with their "Turkish army clashes with Kurdish fighters in northern Syria." shit.

    Armed police shoot peaceful protestors and they are "clashes", army invades country, rapes and stones women to death - "clashes".
    Love the balance, BBC.

    Completely agree with the above comments on the depressing scenes at last night's match. Seems like a hefty exclusion for the national team might be the only proper deterrent.

    Picking up on fontgeeksogood's aside:

    I ask my own aside:

    Are you still a "kid" at 24? I find it weird that professional footballers of all ages are still seen as youngsters. Fair enough for the teenagers who are new on the scene, but a 24-year-old person is an adult by any measure.

    That's not to say Sterling hasn't had to deal with more shit than any person should - he has, thanks to some sections of our despicable press - but he's hardly a child. That fact that he's stood up to tackle the issue on his own terms shows his maturity.

    24 in footballer years is like 10 in people years.

    When I was 24 I was not a kid. Now that I am 38, I know I was a kid when I was 24 :-)

    They mentioned on commentary last night that Rashford apparently used to be a mortgage advisor before he got into professional football. Props to him.

    Mings, not Rashford. And I think he worked in a cold-calling operation trying to sell mortgage products - not quite an advisor. But still, at least he has some life experience.

    He shouldn't have to, was my point. The age is really not the takeaway message I wanted to make. He shouldn't have had to have media training (etc), he's been put into the limelight by racist press and the do-gooders equally by having him have to feel like he was some kind of standard bearer for black players.

    Racism in football is insidious
