So how can it be stopped?

Yet more cases of black players being sent racist abuse following a defeat/mistake/poor performance. News that TAA and Keita were abused follows on from Toney from Brentford, Sanchez from Sours and numerous others in the last two weeks.

It now actually feels that as soon as a team has a poor performance or a player has a poor game, there will 100% be some racist abuse that follows and as that abuse gets more and more coverage, the abuse will continue as unfortunately, it means these sad individuals get exactly what they want from it. In some weird way, I actually feel we're getting to a stage where some of the people posting the abuse may not even be racist. They have something else wrong with them in that what they will say whatever they can to be "noticed".

This will continue and will only get worse the more the media covers it but how can you just ignore/sweep this stuff under the carpet? It is a really vicious circle and with the ease that social media profiles can be made, I just don't see this stopping any time soon.

Not the best analogy

If your gearbox is broken you repair it but it doesn’t stop it breaking again.

There are two conversations here how do you literally stop it and how do you enforce punishments that punish offenders and dissuade future offenders.

You can’t really stop a crime if someone is driven to commit it. You can make punishment so severe it dissuades those who’s moral compass may be slightly off kilter but that’s really about it.

Clout is a drug on social media. It's either people are obsessed with being 'famous' on social media or they're not.

Obviously the action to be taken is to ban these people from the platform. UEFA or whichever FA needs to ban these people from not just the team's games but from the leagues in general. They shouldn't be able to attend the sport at all (not that it will matter)

Also name & shame these people publicly. Trust me, there can be no defamation of character case against any of these regulatory bodies.

But if these institutions think that just the players taking a knee is going to stop the racism then it will just continue. Action needs to be taken.

You do realise these accounts are fake names and made up email addresses.

Naming and shaming billybigbollox69 isn't going to stop anyone

Its a difficult one because people who do this sort of stuff are being given a platform when they are not worth the time of day

When will people realise it can't be stopped? We have just seen over the last year that 50% of the population are complete cants in some fashion or other, and many of those are just not capable of being decent human beings. The only cure is time, and making such a huge thing of racism again the last few years has set the process back a decade or two again.

Everybody was up in arms about how the police acted in the George Floyd situation, but roll forward two days and many had forgotten that rage because people were smashing up cities for literally no reason and then hatred grows again for the wrong reasons.

I don't want this thread to venture off the beaten path but there's going to be more riots looking at the way the trial is going right now.

Agree with the 1st paragraph though. People are vile enough at games, it's only worse behind a keyboard

Only way you stop this or crackdown perpetrators is by having a live bank account or credit/debit card before you get an account. Even charge 1p/£1 a year annual fee. Extra revenue for the people who they might lose through not having a bank etc not that they'll miss the poor buggers 🤣
