Maybe with respect to our players and supporters, it's about cutting some slack and offering the benefit of the doubt.
You see blasé generalisation, I see stand-out moments, manifesting themselves into the mark of a footballer. It's more or less the same thing but I s'pose any future negative rep, along these lines, should be decided similarly to numerous infringements receiving a yellow card.
With regards to public debate, I just think it often surmounts to attention seeking, attempting to gain recognition by defeating somebody in a petty, online argument. They can also trail off topic, quite easily. I'm quite an advocate of more direct discussion, especially when the topic is this personal.
On the whole, it's humbling to know we share a dislike for the overt abuse of our own players. Thankfully, at games, I've found behaviour to the contrary often prompts the aforementioned to quell their lamentable conduct, at least where I sit.
