TEAMtalk guest and Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows is fully behind the Kick It Out campaign and wants to see the back of racism.
I feel a disclaimer is needed this week as I'd prepared and begun writing a blog on the future of the Scotland manager Craig Levein. I'm not going to lie, it was going to be brilliant, possibly my best ever work.
But it has become clear there is a far bigger issue that needs addressing.
I was on air presenting the Sports Centre on Sky Sports News Radio when the brawl broke out at the end of the Serbia v England Under-21 game on Tuesday.
They were unsavoury scenes that appeared to mar an entertaining if tight and tense game. I say that having only been able to keep one eye on the game whilst presenting the show and talking about other sports.
For anyone who watched Felix Baumgartner jump from that balloon last week my studio is a bit like the control centre for that mission...only with more screens.
There's usually so much going on but naturally the sight of two sets of players and respective staff flying in caught my eye. It was only as the situation developed that it became clear the reasons behind the brawl.
Let's get one thing clear, there is absolutely no place in football or society as a whole for the kind of racist chanting and abuse that has been alleged, and it's sad that the Serbian FA have come out so strongly in denial of what happened.
On Thursday's show I spoke to Tottenham defender Adam Smith who played in that game and the kind of things he recounted are deplorable.
By a strange coincidence this has all come at the start of the latest week of action from the Kick It Out campaign. Players up and down the country will warm up this weekend in t-shirts bearing the campaigns slogans as a sign of support.
Not all players will wear them, though, as Jason Roberts told us this week.
I'm privileged in the work I do that I get to talk to footballers of all levels and the kind of comments from Jason Roberts and Jason Brown didn't really come as a surprise.
From people I've spoken to there seems to have been a feeling for a while that racism issues aren't always taken as seriously as they should be. But I'm not sure the t-shirt protest is the right way to highlight concerns and as TEAMtalk columnist Danny Mills told us it raises other questions too.
The events of the past year, including the Luis Suarez and John Terry sagas, have shown racial abuse is not simply a problem in foreign countries. Former Wolves manager Terry Connor was at an event to try and get more black coaches into the game this week, and told me today's game is nothing like it was when he started out, but there are still problems to address.
Former Newcastle defender Olivier Bernard is now an ambassador for Show Racism the Red Card, and he said the events of Tuesday night are a perfect opportunity to send a message to those with distasteful and outdated views.
Whether players wear t-shirts or not there needs to be a concerted effort to step up and support anti-racism campaigns and also those combating homophobia too.
Maybe the events of the past week and the strong opinions it has brought to the surface can be a good thing for football.
If it reignites everyone's desire to work harder to stop this happening again then maybe, just maybe, we can get rid of this once and for all.
