My son (12) plays Sunday league football in the Garforth League in and around Leeds. In a recent match the opposition goalie was sent off - a highly unusual occurence at this level where entire matches can pass without a single incidence of foul play. It turned that he'd been swearing - at everybody. Later it also emerged that he'd called one of the black players in our team "a fucking frizzy-haired freak". This player's dad raised the issue of racism with the coaches. The opposition coach said: "I can't believe he would say something like that - both his parents are police officers."
