This is worrying. I thankfully didn't personally experience any problem during the Lincoln to Sheffield leg of the train journey and my path diverged from the bulk of the travelling support after that. Don't do that many aways and the last one that I can recall racist behaviour at was Luton, mostly from one individual. It needs eradicating.What is most disturbing about this is that 90% of the intellectuals on the Cowsheds website don't see any problem with Norwood's behaviour at all. Then again, that does not come as a huge surprise after the anti-semitic chanting we were subjected to from an element of our 'followers' on the train coming back from Lincoln.
Don't let anyone tell you that racism/homophobia/misogyny are not still issues in football culture.
As for Norwood, incredibly stupid sums him up. The fact that he's seemingly unaware of how inappropriate and offensive 'blacking up' is deemed, despite previous similar reactions to earlier such behaviour demonstrates this. Hopefully he's learned something from the PFA workshop.
