Alabama followers hurl racist, homophobic remarks at Texas gamers

Alabama soccer hardly ever takes L’s, however that might not be the case this season, and it’s a superb factor as a result of, by god, are they sore losers.

After the Crimson Tide’s loss to Texas on Saturday, movies surfaced of (presumably) disgruntled Tide followers repeatedly screaming anti-gay, racist feedback at Longhorn gamers. 

Angie Wisner, mom of Tre Wisner (pictured within the video), stated followers spit at and threw beer cans and water bottles of their route all night time, and also you’d suppose {that a} group of people that’ve been privileged sufficient to root for Nick Saban’s staff would take the loss in stride.

Nevertheless, that is Alabama we’re speaking about. I’m not saying the identical followers who shouted the feedback are the identical individuals who attacked the Black boat captain in Montgomery, however there’s a commonality between the 2 teams that makes none of this stunning.

The College of Alabama launched an announcement Monday condemning members of its repugnant fanbase.

“We’re disgusted by studies of vile language and inappropriate habits Saturday night time,” the assertion reads. “To be clear, we condemn this habits and it’ll not be tolerated in our venues. It’s not consultant of UA or our values. We anticipate all attendees to behave with class and respect in the direction of others. Followers are strongly inspired to report points to our safety sources on-site. Gameday and delayed studies are appropriately addressed and anybody discovered to be in violation of our guidelines and expectations can be promptly eliminated and could also be banned from future occasions.”

Cool, now inform that to Bama QB Jalen Milroe, who’s Black, and I’m certain can be on the receiving finish of fan backlash after his two-interception outing, if he hasn’t already. Yelling homosexual slurs and telling Black gamers to return to the tasks is the habits of spoiled youngsters who don’t know course of their anger, in order that they go full troll as in the event that they have been nonetheless protected of their dorm room taking part in Name of Obligation.

That, or they have been taught that that is acceptable habits, which is worse, and actually, a extra possible rationalization.

The Tide bought beat, handedly, and pretty, and whereas it’s an outlier, it’s no excuse for bigotry. Remaining calm and appearing civilized is simple when your staff is successful, however adversity typically exposes true colours and checks one’s poise. These Alabama followers failed that examination miserably.
