Fans Angry Over Rotherham Programme

Fans Angry Over Rotherham Programme

'If you don't mind, I'll not talk about today's visitors,as I've found an unnecessary number of their fans to be unpleasant, violent half wits '

These comments appeared in the official Rotherham United programme for the game against Doncaster Rovers. Rovers fans were angry at the remarks made.

You have to wonder how the comments were allowed to appear in an official Rotherham United product in the first place.

Rovers fans are expected to write to the Football Association, Football League and Rotherham United complaining about the comments.

Good grief! Just who are the 'half-wits in this - not Donny for sure. I hope the majority of the Millers fans speak out about this.

How disappointing that officals of a "football club" would allow such tnhings to appear even if they agree. Lets hope the authorities take a hard hand and deduct them points. Will they never learn.

I suggest the Rotherham fans view the comments on the forum. Rotherham United have already taken some action.

I must be a half wit, I donated good money to help Rotherham survive. Beware the hand that feeds you.

I've met a few Donny fans in my time and I think it was complimentary to suggest that they have as much as 50% wit...
