This story has caused several debates about the use of the word "Yid" or "Yido". For those who don't know Tottenham have been subjected to a fair amount of Anti-Semitism over the years (due to having a large following from the Jewish community). Because of this the supporters have taken to using the racial slurs used against them as their own by referring to themselves as the "Yid Army". The problem that people seem to have is the fact some of the supporters using these words are not Jewish. There has been a large amount of supports for the use of this word which include UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Tottenham Manager Andr Villas-Boas and former player Jimmy Greaves. Personally I think it's Ok because it's just sticking two fingers up and the genuine racists.

Opinions People?

As a spurs fan I attend games on a regular basis and I often chant yid army, yiddo etc. I was born after all the hooliganism and when I first chanted it as a kid I didn't know the meaning behind it.

I see no reason why we can't chant it. As the PM said we're using it in terms of a badge of honor and not in an agressive manner. I often listen to rap music and often the n word is used, I don't feel ofended when I hear it. Language is only offensive if the people using those terms are looking entice hate.

We'll sing want we want, We'll sing what we want, we're tottenham hotspur, we'll sing what we want!!!!

This is just one example, it's happened throughout all our games so far this season and the FA have done nothing.

Can I ask why people get offended by this?

People get offended because they have no interest in football and are simply wannabe do gooders who feel the need to interfere in everything.

Racism (sexism/homophobics and all the other types of discrimination) cannot be about words and what they mean. It has to be about the context the words are used in.
I am not tottenham fan, but clearly when they use it themselves, they are not discriminating against themselves or trying to offend themselves so I see no problem.

Yes its okay. When spurs fan use the yid or yido word, they dont say in an offensive way... This whole saga is just ridiculous.
