Goes back to "their country , their rules" whilst its clear that those wearing the crusaders costume are demonstrating their right to support their team in a manner that they choose, their hosts have on this occasion taken a dim view of it, in many ways its a bit like it being frowned upon to wear Nazi paraphernalia in this country, even in fancy dress circumstances.

A couple of posts on the other "offended" thread are quite descriptive too

In their own country I have little problem with this, though obviously they should understand that it's highly unlikely that any serious cultural point was being made here.

However, in this country they take the complete p1ss in the opposite direction.

Absolutely - I guess they are a bit rabbit in headlights with the focus & attention of the worlds media upon them, in any event if they can ban rainbows & armbands then I guess crusader costumes would also fall under that category -

I'm not sure you should refer to the majority of posters as proper thickies. Average intelligence I'd suggest. But being offended by a comment on a thread about being offended is quite entertaining. Well done

Offended? Not in the least. Just amused by your attempt to assess the intelligence level of your fellow fans, most of whom, I would assume, are unknown to you. Oh, I see you did it again!

crusader costumes. Ah yes, its very offensive to display a sword or even a representation of a sword. Very violent and disrespectful. We are all offended.

Now that Saudi flag, with the big sword.....ah, thats ok cos its their 'culture'
