Thoughts from an active pensioner who is now somewhat past his Biblical "Use-by date"

"Cruel Chants"

According to the Daily Telegraph, one of the footballers granted a secrecy injunction was given it because of the possibility of "Boos and Cruel Chants" at Premier League Games.
So it now seems that if you do something that a third party finds objectionable, they can actually be banned from telling you so. Personal responsibility for one's actions seems to be a thing of the past.
The crazy situation here is that any "Boos and Chants" will be now far worse than if the footballer had allowed events to take their course. A judge can't imprison an entire stadium full of football supporters, all of course saying "it wasn't me guv".
The old saying, very appropriate in this case, that the footballer has "made his bed and should lie on it" should apply.
