A fair answer, K. On the last part, I disagree. I've not heard anything from the club about the continuing (growing?) issue of sectarianism aimed at Hibs fans.Good question R and this isnae a politician answer fae me - I’ve not got an opinion (that’s on any topic) as it’s important I amn’t seen to represent the support inaccurately or influence - Something I said in my personal statement. That stance will give me the right platform to get behind whatever the majority of the fans think/want - regardless if I agree or not. Will I be too far away from what the support think? I’d like to think not.
From the short conversations I’ve had, I believe Sectarianism falls into the unacceptable conduct push the club is making for everyone inside the stadium.
My point of view is that the unacceptable conduct push is valid and well intentioned but it also contrasts with how little the club is willing to do about home fans being subjected to sectarian singing/abuse. Leeann has been vocal about misconduct, flares and (weirdly) drugs. The club has gone to the extent of bringing in sniffer dogs and spent money on new camera systems to identify offenders yet there's still silence over the sectarian chanting from opposition supporters. I appreciate the need to take ownership of our own behavior first and this isn't coming from a "whatabout them?" point of view but if we can put this much effort into resolving the home fans problems, it seems odd that the board claims that the behavior of away fans is purely a police matter. The problem of sectarianism will not go away if everyone sticks their head in the sand.
