Footballers have been urged to stop spitting because it makes a revolting habit look macho. Keep Britain Tidy says youngsters are copying their heroes and covering the streets in saliva. Chief executive Alan Woods said: "Spitting remains the ultimate insult, a contemptuous gesture drowning in hate.

The charity polled nearly 300 soccer fans from 19 clubs around England.

It found they were overwhelmingly upset by the incident in which Bolton striker El Hadji Diouf spat at Portsmouth's Arjan de Zeeuw. Asked to say what was the grossest thing they had seen at football, 75% of the fans opted for the 2004 spitting incident.

So do you spit in public?

Simply NO. It is disgusting behaviour, and even a hygienic problem.

No its disgusting.

Some Italian spat at me in Ibiza after I peeled him off Laura, one of my mates. Gobbed right in my boatrace. I nearly tore his f*cking head off.

I do.

When i do it is for a purpose. I spit out phlegm and other "things" not wanted in my mouth. I make every attempt to do this in private, i'll even go to a seclude area when outdoors and spit. Sometimes it's just necessary.

It is not nice to see, so i don't want or let other see me do it.

As for footballers or athletes in general. Give me a break. These people are running their bodies to the ground. There is a build up of mucus and it needs to be "released".

Next thing footballers will be asked to stop perspiring..."eeewww mommy he's sweeting...make him stop"

Big no-no. It's disgusting, and sometimes when somebody does it I say eeeeek or something, very loud. All heads turn, always tons of fun.

Says who?

I'm still in a public domain, just because i duck behind a column or garbage bin makes it so drastically different?....is it because i don't do it at their (the publics) feet?

I  spit  on your comment and the time and effort you took to type it to make such a petty reply.

I've never quite understood the general practice of spitting. Ever since I moved to New York I observe it all the time. Yet, amazingly enough, I have gone practically my entire life without the need to expectorate on a public sidewalk...which seems to be done here for sheer entertainment value. Perhaps I am just unique...I'm certainly special.


If it pisses off the right, I'm all for it.

I used to, I used to think it was good but I realised it's just disgusting and now I only spit when necessary and I try to find a toilet to do it or I just keep it to myself.

Me too. If i have phlem in my mouth i'm not gonna swallow it so i just spit it out. A bit of phlem going into a drain isn't going to do any damage. If anyone sees me doing this then ne luck it's not pleasant but it's not going to hurt anyone.

I don't do it, waste of fluids in the NZ summer heat!

The Chinese do it a great deal and when there was an influx of Chinese into AKL there had to be a bit of an education programme to stop it as a lot of Kiwi's go barefoot!!!

I must say, I have never seen an Asian person spit in the street in NZ.

I admit I do spit out gum or candies in public. I really shouldn't spit out the gum because it gets stuck to people's shoes. I know what that feels like and it can be really annoying. I won't go into phlem discussions here.

One thing I cannot stand at all are people who HORK loudly in public. It is the grossest sound you can ever hear.

Well......as far as I'm concerned spitting is the worst, most disgusting thing that a person can do in public.....

Sorry, but I live in Toronto and as you probably know it is considered the most "multi-cultural" city in North America. Well, if you've ever taken public transportation in the city of Toronto, or walked down a street...you'll be guaranteed to see men, woman and children "horking & spitting" on sidewalks, at bus stops it is DAM DISGUSTING!!!!
