Scottish Government Takes On Soccer Violence

"Scotland has banned religious or historical slurs by its often sectarian soccer fans."

The Scottish Government recently passed a law making religious slurs/insults/chants/songs illegal in response to football matches, which is an interesting step. Here's the full article, I bolded some parts for the tl;dr crowd:

Darren Fletcher, football genius and now coach too!

Darren Fletcher has taken on Paul Scholes’s coaching duties with Manchester United’s reserve team as he recovers from a bowel condition. He is assisting reserve-team manager Warren Joyce until the end of the season as Sir Alex Ferguson wants him involved with the club, even though he will not play again this season.

Fletcher has been told he needs complete rest from football, but he has been struggling to come to terms with his enforced break. The Scotland midfielder has not appeared for United since they drew 2-2 with Benfica in the Champions League at Old Trafford on November 22 last year.

Despite his absence, United have made it clear that he is not under any pressure to return to action and encouraged him to take up Scholes’s reserve-team role earlier this month.

Ferguson has also urged the 27-year-old to take his coaching badges — he even flew out to watch Barcelona take on Real Madrid on Wednesday night to continue his education.

Despite doubts over his future, Fletcher has told Ferguson he will be available for pre-season training and expects to be fit for the 2012-13 campaign.


I am so happy to see Fletch helping out with the reserves and keeping involved in the club - I can't imagine how frustrating nd hard it must be not to play, but at least he can feel he's doing *something*
