Homophobic banner at Marseilles football match

On the same day of the match between Montpellier and St Etienne featuring the fight against homophobia, an hour away in Marseille, fans displayed a homophobic banner, demonstrating the need for the fight. A summary of the story from Yagg.com:

During the match between Olympique de Marseille and Arles-Avignon, fans displayed a banner on which was written the message: "You bunch of faggots: Be men". Marseilles has a history of homophobic behavior from its fans. After a previous incident, a manager of the club said that "In Marseilles, we are ourselves not good enough examples to become indignant about such statements".

This annoys me so much. It just pains me to see stuff like this. We have to find harder against homophobia in football. Football is still racist but things have improved through the years and I hope that they'll improve for this as well.
