Calm Down, Calm Down...Carragher In Fan Fight Fury

Tuesday, 8 January 2008

Jamie Carragher was today at the centre of a probe (not anal I presume) after he allegedly challenged Luton fans for a fight after the shambolic performance against the Hatters on Sunday evening.

Carragher is no stranger to such charades, who could forgot that classic moment against Arsenal when he picked up a coin which was aimed at him and threw it right back into the crowd. It later emerged that the fan in question had merely offered Carragher a penny for his thoughts.

Full details have yet to be confirmed as to how the latest incident came about, but it is rumoured that a few Luton fans, dressed up in Scouse wigs and moustaches were giving poor Jamie a bit of stick during his warm down and telling him to “calm down”.

Now, whilst I can understand his annoyance, and the exact details cannot be confirmed it does appear to be a case of another footballer acting like a prima donna. It appears that Carragher was trying to pick a fight with a bunch of fans who probably take a couple of years to earn what he does in a week for about 3-4 hours “work”. Why could he just not ignore them, be the bigger man and walk away. Is this really the way professional sportsman should act?

How often did you see Shane Warne jump in the crowd and with a Jimmy Fly Super Snuka Splash after being taunted for being fat? No, what he instead did was bowl out the whole England team to silence them. In other words, he got on with his job and let his talent do the talking.

It’s about time these idiots starting acting with a little dignity. Abuse isn’t nice, don’t get me wrong, but reacting in such a way is only going to further damage the reputation of top flight footballers, especially when confidence in them is at its lowest ebb for many a year.

Sort it out lads.

Now lets get one thing straight – I’m not having a rant because Carra is a Liverpool player, the rant would be the same if it was a Man Utd player.

Yes footballers get paid Millions of pounds per year and should set an example to others in terms of restraint in the face of provocation. However, how is it any different to some Tramp giving you sh1t in the street and then you kicking his head in? The difference in income is approx the same percentage wise!!!

Also your analogy concerning Shane Warne slightly misses the point that He still had the opportunity to silence the fans within that game. The Game on Sunday had already finished and therefore so had the fans “right” to hurl abuse at someone. Yes the fans pay lots to turn up half cut and shout obscenities at footballers and think that they should be allowed to do so. How is this any different to shouting abuse to some workman in the street? He’s just doing his job and if you don’t like it I bet you don’t call him a “f#cking w@nker” cus he’d drop you straight away.

Many articles have been written lately about footballers facing abuse, and the foul language they use on the pitch. Maybe football has found it’s self in a catch 22vicious circle, whereby the language from the terraces is effected by the language used by the players and the lack of respect they show the referee and vice versa? How this is solved I’m not sure, but I know this much. If someone thought that because he had paid £30 to come and watch me work then decided to shout abuse – I’d punch him in the face straight away. So in terms of that Carra showed remarkable restraint.

Rant Over.

Sunil I have to disagree with you too, they spat at him and threw alcohol at him which are 2 facts which you have conveniently left out of your article. If anyone did that to me I would smash their face in. Carra didnt even touch anyone, so whats all the fuss about, this is not like Cantona at all.

Sunil Says:

When the article went to press the details hadnt be confirmed. I was just speculating

I think if you re-read the article you will realise that I was basing my evidence on the initial reports and not what came out afterwards.
