Just been reading some of the toxic vitriol on twitter and in particular some aggressive idiot having a go at Duane re his injury. What makes people think they can be like that and do you really think these sort of people are actually fans of our club? If so they have a funny idea of what being a fan means. How are the sort of comments on there ever going to make our club a better place or encourage people to sign for us? A lot of people are impatient as we see on here and all entitled to opinions but Twitter comments under some official posts and to players make me embarrassed to be a fan. Anyone else feel same?

I totally agree with you and it’s starting to ruin my enjoyment of supporting the club to be honest.

I know exactly what you mean.

However, it seems it's more of a twitter thing than a Derby thing, every club has them sorts on twitter. Mean little people hiding behind keyboards.

We're all annoyed that the start of the season has been rubbish but do something positive, mow the lawn or walk the dog or bake a cake or something until you feel better.

I don’t think it’s just a Twitter thing though. It’s definitely got worse on here too, I’m afraid.

As long as you're not so stressed that you bake the dog or mow the cake thats fine!

I'm not on Twitter, so I don't see it that much, but from what I can gather it's no worse/better at DCFC than anywhere else.

It's a shame, because it should be a great medium to connect footballers directly with supporters, but I see almost no advantage to a player posting on it, and lot's of downsides.

I've just seen the post from Jamie Sketchly Snr on twitter thanks to my son, that's outrageous and possibly criminal.

I have hopefully brought a racist tweet to the attention of the SLO to look into tonight, I won't be sharing it on this forum and have kept a screenshot just incase it's deleted now more people have seen and replying to him. 

Now fans are not at the games, watching from home, there is no cooling off period, no beers afterwards to soften the blow of defeat. The Twitter DCFC timeline as you say has as a result become more toxic than ever.

It's such a shame as Twitter was and could be a great tool, now it's just filled with attention seekers looking to go viral with their venom. I have a real love/hate relationship with the place, would love to just close my account but it's one of the best places to see what's going on in the world, especially football world.

We get a hard time on here at times for our rules, but I tell you what the more time I spend on Twitter the more I believe we have it right here and hopefully give you all that platform to voice your opinions away from all that mess.

I reported that tweet, hope others did too.

Saying that, Duane Holmes has just shared it as well, no point hiding it, people need to know this is not ok.

I wouldn’t be embarrassed about being a fan if I was you, I’m not. I don’t think is anything unique to Derby or even football. The twittersphere is a weird, brilliant, horrible, funny, dull representation of the human psyche with contributions from utter morons to the very enlightened.

Sadly, certain folk will find that less offensive than taking the knee for two seconds before the game.

Good grief. 

 

Not great is it. The one thing I will applaud him for is not hiding behind a photo of a player or an egg, should be easily identified on the clubs database to deal with.

Some may look at this and think or say "grass", but this is not right at all, if you can tweet that for the world to see, what would you be willing to shout to players inside the stadium?

I'll never understand why someome would feel superior due to the pigment in their skin, something which we have no choice or say in.

I'd much rather we save that animosity for awful crimes and injustices, not for someone daring to have more melanin. Absurd.

What the actual F....

Surely someone didnt really share that and think it wouldnt go any further.

Probably one of the worst tweets I've ever seen.

In fact the more I luck the more upset I am. Not even about colour, just seeing a poor child locked in a cage.

Wtf
