“Dippers or Bin Dippers”

It’s a somewhat derogatory term referring to the poverty experienced in Liverpool during the 70’s and 80’s, and the prospect of looking in rubbish bins for food or anything of value. This is likely to have taken place amongst the burgeoning homeless population that emerged in the 1970’s and 1980’s, due to national economic policies and militancy that all but destroyed the city

 

In 2019 - Trevor Sinclair apologises to furious Liverpool fans for 'bin dippers' tweet mocking poverty on Merseyside - as ex-Man City star says he'll donate his talkSPORT pundit fee to homeless charity. 

“Thought for the day”

2021 , should it go unchallenged ? 

Should we sit back and take it for a bit of harmless, so called footy banter between mates of a certain age ? 

Should forum users know better now, or should moderators take steps to stamp it out when it rears it’s head ? 

Should people be more thick skinned and laugh things off ?

Or are we in danger of becoming so wrapped up in political correctness that we loose our sense of humour in all of this ? 

Could it be a mixture of all the above ?

 

Discuss ....

Hat - coat - I’ve gone bin dipping as it’s been a hard week, but Dominic Cummings and David de Gea's made it better.

Personally I find it the term unnecessary and if I was a Liverpudlian I would find it a little offensive.

I now avoid expressing political and moral opinion. The Brexit related debates on here proved the only common denominator most of us share is the music, and that gets tested quite often.

I'm not sure if this subject is as complicated and divisive as Brexit but I respect your view Mr Ed....

I totally agree with you, some people do seem to be very quick to take offence at anything nowadays but in my opinion some "remarks" are just completely unnecessary and totally out of context....

I fully understand that buddy, coming from multi racial leicester i fully remember the vile chants we were subjected to in the 80s and 90s by opposition fans but thankfully we have come a long way since then and taken down to a base level comedy and our sense of humour which are huge parts of our culure would simply disappear.

Thought for the day.

After getting abused as a United fan all my life over Munich mostly from scousers and city fans .and it still goes on , just like Hillsborough abuse goes on, there's no escape from it , that is what happens on the terraces. Its life. . 

I find the word dipper quite charming actually but out of respect for Mike the owner of this site I don't use the words  what I really want to. 

So as a consequence of Steve bringing this subject up and out of my total respect for him  I will never mention the word dippers again and to make sure of that I will never be participating in any football threads on here ever again. 

Thanks Guys. Out of here.

Football shows the tribalistic side of human nature at its absolute worst imo. 

Just think, if your dad had started taking you to the 'other local team' as a kid, you would be loving them and hating your own team right now. Or if you just happened to grow up in another part of the country. 

And some of the hatred and vitriol fans dish out to the opposition is nothing short of sickening. I would question the intelligence and mental capacity of any (mature adult) fan from any team who stoops as low as joining in some of the gutter chants. 

Meanwhile the players are just mercenaries, who mostly play for the highest bidder.....

Do you really think they are that bothered if they lose a game as they drive off in their latest Mclaren/Ferrari/Lambo before moving on to a higher salary at Madrid/Barcelona/Milan... while the fans queue to catch the bus having splurged a good proportion of their disposable on a season ticket?

From the ones I deal with in a business capacity, they see their current club in a very different light to the fans.
