    Eliminating Racism from the stands

    After the recent nonsense in Spain, certain people are supporting the idea of players walking off the pitch if they become subject to racist taunts from the terraces.
    Rather than this, I'd like to see a total ban introduced for all supporters of the club/nation concerned. The severity of the offence would affect the length of the ban.
    Could you imagine Anfield, Old Trafford or the Emirates stadium devoid of home support?
    The revenue loss to clubs would be enormous and make them far more keen to police themselves. I also think genuine supporters would be less likely to do nothing when these disgraceful events occur. What do you think?
