Sunday night played F. C Copenhagen v OB. A fight like so many others. And yet not.
From the OB's tilskuerrækker was shouted something. Something that stuck and has since created much debate.
'Fischer (Player from F. C Copenhagen, red.) he is gay', it sounded from the agitated fans.
The young FCK player Victor Fischer was quickly put out and take distance from the tilråbene.
- It is preposterous in society in general, but it is especially in football. (...) They can call me an idiot, you can say that I have a smooth hairstyle. It even has a hint of humor. But it belongs nowhere at home, that it (homosexuality, ed.) supposed to be an invective in fodboldkulturen in 2019, said Viktor Fischer after the incident to DR.
But it was not only the player himself, who had an attitude to the homophobic heckling.
on Wednesday morning wrote DJ and tv host Dan Rachlin a blog post about the episode in London. Rachlin is incarnated FCK-fan, and find themselves often on the stage, when the us team plays in Telia Parken in Copenhagen.
the Blog post had the headline: 'You can shout gay without being a homofob'. In the post, he argued that, on the grønsværens later years he was a different set of rules one does not necessarily transfer to reality.

'You can easily learn its children and young people, that there is one jargon to a football game in a stadium, and so a second way we behave when we are not football', wrote the celebrity among others.
Rachlin stressed in the post that he has several gay friends, and that he never could find to sing something racsistisk.
'My faction in the Park, 'Cooligans', which wholeheartedly supports the FCK, doesn't come with the racist chants. We scoff, not players, for example, has been out for illness or death. But yes, we yell 'is gay' hesitate to point towards the fans' he wrote.
the Post met great resistance in the hours after publication. The critics believed that there were teams in the Rachlins reasoning. And already the same evening was Rachlin also come to better thoughts.
In a posting on his Facebook profile on Wednesday evening, just hours after the first post was published, says Rachlin, is that he has become wiser.
'If my contribution to the idiotic songs on the specifically Brøndby and at some occasions a judge, in any way are contributing to make life a little more difficult for the young man, who find it difficult to jump out, the older married heterosexual man who wants a second life or other homosexuals, is it reason enough to I stop it. And so do I!', sounds in the advertisement.
When the Extra Magazine speaks with Dan Rachlin he realises also that he the past day have been the wiser. He rejects, however, that it is due to pressure from the so-called shitstorm, as he has been in.
I object against all, which will cause it to look as if I have changed position under pressure or due to a shitstorm. Already in the post and subsequently, I explained that it doesn't become one or the other, is outraged journalist or some other disgusting homosexual who thinks he speaks on behalf of all homosexuals, who can get me to change attitude or position.
by Contrast, he explains that speaking with close gay friends and see Victor Fischer argue against the songs, has led him to change position.
- The shouting 'is gay' is from an old-fashioned and misguided belief that homosexuals should be such a little tøsede in it, among other things, in their approach to the sport. And when I call it a mistaken and old-fashioned way, so is it because: it fits not.
Although Rachlin will still shout at the stadium, it is now over to shout derisive things about homosexuals.
- I have exceeded a limit, and for my part, it is finally ended with singing 'are gay' in the stadium, " he concludes.
