Spitfire
No not the vintage World War II airplanes which have just marked their 70th anniversary this week. But I have fond memories of building one in my youth. We are talking Chelsea vs Barcelona and fan control before this weeks’ European contest.

While nobody condones this sort of action and no doubt there will be some sort of FIFA sanction, this type of behaviour between fierce rivals is beginning to become common place. We’ve seen it through out the last few years in Premiership and lower league clashes in the UK. But now the bridge has been gapped to the Euro clashes as well. Why I recall Christophe Dugarry (French national team) getting a bit miffed one game while playing for Birmingham FC. I also recall him getting his knee taken out in a timely manner on the anniversary of WWII. So go figure which you consider worse. Showing your frustration and anger or walking away injured? Spitting is usually a means of retaliation for something done by another opponent. Unfortunately, the retaliator often gets punished more than the original instigator.

We don’t expect the USA to understand these situations as we also don’t expect the members of the MLS Chicago Fire to all suddenly rush to their windows and spit outside in some harmonious salute. But we do expect some consideration that sometimes the actions aren’t what they appear. Spitting in the NHL is common place where you skate to the bench take a swig of water or drink spit it out and then off they go again. That would make them all Raptor team members. Lately, the spitting in the UK has been diagnosed as racist for some reason. Obviously, there are some who will use it that way and that’s unfortunate. But let’s hope that the majority are just having a laugh at history or venting frustration in whatever situation as while those big guns from world war caused so much devastation. I don’t recall the last time a building was destroyed by human spit fire…

Oh, by the way the English are selling inflatable replica SPITFIRE airplanes for a reasonable price in the run up to the clashes in Germany this summer. Go figure…they brought that clash on themselves…
