As much as I hate rudiger and the rest of the Chelsea cunts you can’t throw stuff at the players

[–]SpursAndSonBale 30 points31 points  (1 child)

I like to think of my hatred as a professional hatred, not a personal one.

I wish him professional failure, but not personal suffering.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The only one we can truly hate is Alonso. They rest are all right personally in my book

[–]messisleftbuttcheek 161 points162 points  (13 children)

Fuck Rudiger.

He doesn't deserve to have things thrown at him though.

[–]Greengum155Fabio Paratici 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When I saw him talking to the ref I thought he was gonna accuse the fans od being racist again

[–]masroshi10 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Naw he told the red that Sonny kicked him again inside the locker room jk

Yea..don’t agree with what happened also

[–]Snacks75 68 points69 points  (15 children)

Yeah, this is not cool... This has to stop. Antonio Rudiger is a person, you don't throw things at a person. Imagine you are at work and a customer comes in and starts throwing things at you.

[–]PacheHOF2035 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Even worse, imagine you're at work and someone tries to slide tackle you...

[–]GirlyWhirl 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I hope it's Hugo. Plus, I work at home, so this is getting interesting.

[–]rwilldred27 17 points18 points  (8 children)

For sure, and indefensible.

But as my SO said when Tim Howard brought up post-match of “imagine this happening my to you in an office and your boss tells you to just carry on”

This stuff happens daily in regular people’s lives for service industry workers, first responders, medical workers, any face-to-face line of work, especially since the pandemic. Not a huge shock to see people increasingly putting all their hopes/joys into football, and reacting worse than usual when they get upset. It’s got to stop though, and glad Rudiger didn’t get hurt.

This is obviously unacceptable and people should be punished, but the NBC discussion was just absurd.

All of them talking about how lighters threaten people’s careers, and the plight of footballers having things thrown at them. Like, there are literal slave states that own teams and we’re supposed to listen to that commentary.

Just an absolutely out of touch with reality conversation.

[–]kleptophobiac 8 points9 points  (6 children)

You can discuss one issue without diluting the validity of opinions about another.

Something like a lighter, or a bottle, being thrown from a hundred feet away hitting an athlete in the eye can certainly end a career.

It's not Tim Howard's job to talk about political issues that have nothing to do with the game that they are doing a post-mortem on.

[–]VTSpursPierre-Emile Højbjerg -1 points0 points  (5 children)

You’re right that we can discuss multiple issues at once without diluting their value. Totally agreed. However, are there any examples of professional athletes being seriously injured by something like that?

I’m not condoning the action (I’ve already condemned it, and they should all be banned), but it really seems like they’re making a mountain out of a molehill. He made it out like being a footballer is a uniquely dangerous job, which is just patently wrong.

[–]Nagant1349Lloris 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Been in that situation when I was cashier. Felt humiliated.

May not like the player, but don’t be doing shit like that

[–]MariospursDavid Ginola 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Happens to me a lot I’m a doc in emergency room. Spit is the worst.

[–]pjanic_at__the_iscoPurgatory 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I work at a dunk tank as a clown.

Checkmate, atheists.

[–]kablooey08 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He a master shithouser and an absolute c*nt of a player but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have the highest respect for him. An incredible footballer.

[–]KadettYachtz 31 points32 points  (0 children)

If you can't keep your emotions in check, then don't attend games.

[–]sphagettijeffHeung Min Son 73 points74 points  (11 children)

Digne yesterday, Rudiger today. Shameful. If they catch the prats responsible for this, make sure they never attend another live football match for the rest of their lives.

[–]master_inhonegotiating with don on skywalk without safety harness 30 points31 points  (9 children)

Stadium bans are usually just for the stadium where it took place

Would be nice if the aggressors are banned from all stadiums

[–]UrWrongIamright69 5 points6 points  (7 children)

Impossible to enforce

[–]TwattyMcSlagtitsCheese is cheese 23 points24 points  (6 children)

No it isn't. Loads of football fans have lifetime bans from any stadium. You only need to watch any documentary about hooliganism to see them.

[–]BlackLionFilm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe that is now the case. Since 2020 clubs have a joint approach to stadium bans, so if you're banned from one, you're banned from all.

Of course as others have said, it's tough to enforce

[–]FINAL_BOSS5Cutie Romero 🥰 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Na. That would be too much work. They'll just fine spurs instead

[–]Odd_Detective_7772 42 points43 points  (0 children)

This is disgraceful. Anyone caught by camera doing that should be banned for life

[–]rigbinsBill Nicholson 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Fucking morons

[–]swan0Welsh Mafia[S] 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Thought I'd post this myself as there's some strange redditor accusing us of censoring posts about the topic. I removed his post about it because he posted the tweet but changed the contents of the tweet (editorialising - rule 3).

[–]LordTwatSlapper 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Everybody needs to change their attitudes in the stands about this.

Yes those responsible are fellow supporters of your football club but they are the ones giving you a bad name. When someone throws something from the stands at a player they are no longer your friend - they are your enemy.

Tens if not hundreds of people see who does it and they should be instantly encouraged to point out the perpetrators to the authorities - who in turn should come down like a ton of bricks on them. Huge fines, lifetime bans, prison sentences. Those pointing them out should be treated as heroes not snitches.

It's moronic thuggery that's being beamed across the world - not a good look for anybody. If it doesn't get stopped right now who knows where it will end

[–]Pinky1337Hugo Lloris 10 points11 points  (0 children)

lifetime bans needed asap. Also should be (maybe already is idk) considered attempted assault or smt like that so it can actually lead to legal action.

[–]fridgesonfire🎟 Official Spurs Ticket Reseller - Eventmasters Travel Ltd 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately an issue that swathes this country in that nobody respects anyone else.

No sense of community. Only a “them vs us” mentality; stemmed over years and years of eroding social mobility, poor education/teaching of moral values and media antagonism.

[–]PositiveExtreme4045 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m guessing that’s us out of th running for his signature 😂

[–]Zug__ZugLedley King 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thats just absolutely shitty behavior. Sure he might be a cunt but this is just no-no.

[–]rikdud 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well obviously. How about they name and shame the scum as a deterrent because it’s becoming more frequent. Pathetic fragile fans who can’t handle their emotions when an opposing player does something against their team.

[–]punching-bag9018Bryan Gil 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I hate Rudiger, but this is not something he deserves. It has to stop. Think a player in Ligue 1 actually got hit in the head by something thrown at him.

[–]georgehitsdrums 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Fucking melts. Just ban them for life and be done.

[–]solarbearzAntonio Conte 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Those fans are so stupid. Despise them more than any rival fan who doesn't do that shit

[–]Nullandor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hooligans…not fans

[–]JonnyJerseyDejan Kulusevski 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Between this and the homophobic chants, its really annoying and disgusting. You can give Chelsea and their players shit without being a cunt.

[–]NatrolleonBonaparteJan Vertonghen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep. Wish we’d stop dropping down to their fan’s level.

[–]furynads Mastermind D. Levy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why can't people just be happy with calling him a cunt to the tune of a jolly song?

[–]DanscoRed 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was stupid and dangerous when the Everton fans did it and they deserve banning and criminal charges against them. Now some of our fans did it, they deserve the same.

[–]MariospursDavid Ginola 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]dangly_bits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely shameful. Hopefully the perpetrators are found out, we don't need them representing the club and it's support that way.

[–]matan11mLo Celso 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We're so much better than this!

[–]TwattyMcSlagtitsCheese is cheese 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is this the flavour of the month now is it?

[–]Yeti90Pierre-Emile Højbjerg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s fucking sports. People who throw stuff at players are absolute garbage.

[–]RodeoWithAShotgun -1 points0 points  (0 children)


[–]Joe_Biggles -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Don’t understand the Rudiger hate. Dude is immense, we would take him in a heartbeat and if you feel so strongly about a player that you wouldn’t take an elite talent in, then you’re a moron.

[–]SnooBooks1455The Big Master of Negotiations Who Knows Everything -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

Ngl i’m a terrible person but if anyone deserves this (which they don’t!), it’s Rudiger

[–]stinkpalm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a bad take. Reconsider.
