Is terrace singing and shouting a free-speech issue or simply a matter of enforcing proper behaviour? Does real tolerance mean that we should defend the right of football fans to sing and to say what they want, even if some find it offensive? Does such policing of football – a rare arena in which people can let off steam outside the normal rules of behaviour – have consequences for wider society?
Tribalism Through The Turnstiles is a collaborative project between myself and Ashley Kirby, where we instigate the point in which the audience goes too far. This A2 sticker book serves to censor out the worst chants ever sung, and only by accepting responsibility for freedom of speech can you find out what they really say.
