http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/9661263/Tottenham-defend-their-supporters-over-allegations...

I noticed this report, having recently read about this group having reported Mark Clattenberg to the Police over the allegations that he racially abused a Chelsea player.

A couple of things spring to mind. The first is that I'm surprised that it's possible to report something to the Police which has nothing directly to do with you. The second is that they are saying they'll report Spurs fans for calling themselves the Yid Army, in reference to the club's roots in the Jewish community. I have an issue with this. I'd always believed it acceptable for people to call themselves whatever they wanted - for example a black person could call themselves a nigger if they so wished. I'm starting to wonder if I've become one of those old people that doesn't "get it" any more (like I felt the first time I bought food in a Subway).

Any thoughts?
