After watching the news story from ESPN called “Beautiful Game Turned Ugly: Racism in Europe’s Soccer Arenas”, I am truly shocked by some of the featured information. To an extent, I am aware that racism is still present in our world, but hearing about the racism in soccer was new to me. There are always going to conflicting opinions in our society, especially with regards to race because many believe they are the superiority in a racial or ethnic group. Because of this idealogy that one race is better than another, races often discriminate against one another. In European soccer, both discrimination and prejudice are present.
The Television programme 7:30 report has released a clip named powder keg. Powder keg focuses on a drug scandal which threatens to destroy a rugby league club. The reports target audience is sporting fans but in particular fans of the sport rugby league. The clip does not support one side of the argument more then another and includes opinions from recognised people as well as factual information supporting both sides of the argument. The report takes on a very dark and serious tone from start to finish.
Negligence in Interscholastic Sports Negligence has been, and still is, the most common reason for lawsuits brought against service providers. In recent years there has been an influx in the number of participants suing service providers for negligent conduct. Specifically focusing on athletes participating in athletics, it is a known fact that athletes participate in athletics knowing the risk of injury but it is still the school and its employees’ responsibility to take reasonable precautions to assure the athletes’ health and safety when participating in school sponsored activities. According to the Coalition of Americans to Protect Sport (CAPS), (1988) anytime individuals are physically active, especially in competitive programs, there is the possibility of an injury occurring. It is imperative that sports organizations, when hosting any school sponsored events, try to reduce the possibility of being held liable for injuries to participants by assessing possible risks and making the necessary adjustments.

Among these, many musicians have written political songs by means of protest to current political affairs. One of these musical groups is U2 – an Irish rock band from Dublin, formed in the late 1970’s. Their song “Sunday Bloody Sunday” was one of their most overt and blatant political protest songs. The title “Sunday Bloody Sunday” refers to the two Bloody Sundays in Irish history. The first was in 1920 when British troops opened fire into a crowd at a football match in Dublin during the Irish War of Independence.
SID 1403782 Does Racism Exist In All Areas Of Football? My research proposal will be focussing on whether racism in all areas of football exists from grassroots football through to professional football and I have chosen to research this topic due to my passion for the game and my surprise at the number of professional players who have been involved in racism against each other and players who have been racially abused by fans. A story I read in October 2013 when Jack Wilshere a current England player was interviewed said that “the only people who should play for England are English people” (Fifield, 2013). This made me think and question whether racism exists in professional football and also in grassroots football. The question I am looking to answer is ‘Does Racism Exist In All Areas Of Football?’ I will be gathering the ideas and opinions of other football fans on the issues I think are important in the awareness of racism.
Players would punch, kick, bite, and gouge other players; sometimes, fans would start rioting, which also added to the unnecessary violence. King Edward of England put in regulations stating that anyone caught playing soccer would face imprisonment. Today, soccer is the most played sport everywhere in the world. It is most popular in Europe and South America though. Some famous players include Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays for Real Madrid, Lionel Messi, who plays for F.C.
This leaves a question about the worlds most loved sport, football; why isn’t women’s football as recognised as men’s? In this argument I will look at key factors that contribute to neglect of the female version and offer counter arguments to try and enlighten the positivity that equal recognition can bring. Firstly, a very popular reason that many people believe contributes to the fact women’s football isn’t as recognised as men’s is that society being stuck in a very sexist regime, passed down through generations, many footballing corporations’ main demographic is men so they feel if they start expressing gender equality in what’s stereotypically a man’s game, they will upset or anger their target audience and them and lose money, they believe this has caused a stalemate in the advances of women’s football and directly caused it to remain less recognised than men’s. This theory is backed up by a former FIFA worker, Devin Barkley, who in 1990 stated ‘I was at a press conference discussing the upcoming venues for the World Cup, the following years Women’s World Cup wasn’t mentioned once. This surprised me and I asked why we aren’t discussing the Women’s World Cup too.
Whereas on the other side there is the fans of Celtic FC who sing songs such as “ Boys of the old Brigade “ and various other chants using names like “ Hun “ and “ Dirty orange bastards “ to describe and taunt the fans of Rangers. There is a fine line between what is seen as “ banter “ and what is seen as sectarianism and offensive, But who’s fault is it? Very few of these songs and chants are still sung due to heavy laws and fines stamped down by the government to rid Scottish football of Sectarianism and very few of these teams supports are still chosing to act in this manor. It is sad that the government has had to step in and clean up this act rather than the clubs and fans taking responsibility for their actions and it is sad that these are the methods that the government has had to use in order to prevent these kinds of things still happening in the modern age. Who really is at fault here, is it the clubs responsibility or is it the fans for trying to carry on these “ cultural ways” ?

It could be through the news or personal experience; racism is all around us. It appears as if racism has been accepted as being part of life. It does not seem like people are ready to put in the effort that will alter the situation all at once. However, there is one element of life where it could be easy to eliminate racism and making a large impact on the general fight.
