This though really is now happening at the UEFA level. Some Turkish lawyer is suing Inter-Miland for wearing a white kit with a big red cross on it (the symbol of Milan) during their home match against the Turkish side Fenerbahce that they won 3-0. Apparently it was offensive to Muslims because it reminds them of Templar Knights and the Crusades and symbolises 'Western racist superiority over Islam'. Seriously, this is not a joke. The Turkish paper Radikal asked 'How could UEFA allow this?'
OK, reality check time. Just because someone wears a red cross it does not mean that they are trying to remind people of the Crusades. What about the Red Cross? Are the Turks suing them? What about all the English clubs that have fans that go to matches in Turkey, and, whilst they're not being stabbed to death, drape the Cross of St George (who was a Turk) in the stadium? Are there complaints to UEFA about that? Of course there aren't.
As for the reference to Western racist superiority. The West as a concept didn't even bloody exist during the Crusades. Racist butchering in the name of Christ it may have been - a bit like the Armenian genocide was racist butchering but lets not go there - but it had bugger all to do with something called the West. The issue is far simpler than conjuring up some perceived sleight. Fenerbahce got the arses kicked away from home and a bad loser has decided to make a pathetic race card issue of it. He should get a grip.
