Jason is a footballer - it should not matter the colour of his skin. It is disgusting. The stewards believed what Jason said and got him out. I have to thank them for that. [LNB]"People around the fellow should have said they were not putting up with what was said. It is wrong. I saw Jason's reaction and tried to calm him down. I thought these days were gone but maybe I am being naive." [LNB]
