Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Pat Nevin on BBC Radio 5 live: ""There are certain things, such as racist abuse, which are beyond the pale, though."

The 'pale' was the British encampment around Dublin when they occupied Ireland. 'Beyond the Pale' is a statement that suggests something extra crazy or extra nasty, and is a directly racist comment against the Irish, suggesting they are less civilised than the English.

And he uses this term to condemn racism.
