A great shame that elements of our support are still stuck in the dark ages.

Totally agree PP. Having said that I was at the Newcastle game and was completely unaware of any abuse so it must have been a very tiny (both in number and brain size) minority. Hopefully won't ever be repeated, and we all stick to abusing refs for just being crap!

I'm pretty confident it wouldn't take the club too long to identify who these people are. Ban them for life.

Given what you say about not hearing it, and the club being unaware, it must have been a small isolated case we would hope.

It does make me feel sad that our club has had negative press over something so stupid. I know I run the risk of being labelled a woke liberal, but I am genuinely baffled as to why anyone would even care, much less shout abuse, about someone's sexuality. I believe James Child is in a longstanding relationship, and there's precious little happiness in the world so bloody good luck to him. Maybe the chant should have been "I don't see why you should get any joy out of life, because I don't".

Anyway this article and what I witnessed against Whitehaven does beg the question of whether our stewards are "neither use nor ornament" as my mum would say. They struggled to get to grips with the flare incident, and reading this article they seemed oblivious to the homophobia and what to do about it.

Always were and continue to be the most horrible “Fans” in R.L. so no surprise there’s finally been some action taken against them.Long overdue.


Keighley or Halifax fan would you say?

I wasn't at the game but when it originally got reported it was reported as a comment (I'd imagine one or two idiots shouting it as he walked down the tunnel)

Sometimes the RFL don't help though, a £1000 fine and a move on would have been acceptable when you look at the fines some teams of got for racist chanting and crowd violence. The agreed "punishment" just adds fuel to the hysteria.

Well it is pleasing to hear that the club reacted positively and is committed to promoting inclusivity within the club and the game. We can only hope the perpetrators recognise themselves from this investigation and are ashamed of their actions. There is enough poop things happening in the world without abusing somebody for something that really shouldn’t be an issue.

Embarrassing. Does anyone know what section of the ground they were in?

....every village has one and Bradford is a big place one of them is bound to get through once in a while sadly.

Shame their mates probably egged them on rather then encouraging them to be quiet

I've noticed that these sort of numpties are ever more noticeable when the the crowds are smaller. Also for a large section of fans it seems to be the norm to hurl abuse at the officials regardless of their performance I just don't get it.
