BY ATTEMPTING to portray the actions of Robbie Fowler as merely "opponentphobia", Peter Corrigan ("Get your apologies out for the lads", Sport, 7 March) gives credence to the view that systematic abuse of one's opponents on the football field is inevitable, if not acceptable. The fact is, Graeme Le Saux has been taunted about his sexuality for years. He has become resigned to that from opposition supporters. However, what is unacceptable is when that same regular drip feed of abuse comes from fellow professionals.
