When players from one Swedish soccer team were found to have hurled anti-gay insults at a rival team, the soccer club to which they belonged decided to take firm action against this kind of behavior and suspended the entire team.

Reports say that the entire lineup of Sörskogens IF received a one year suspension for what the club deemed unacceptable harassing behavior during an autumn match against the Stockholm Snipers. The Snipers are a club that has stated publicly that it welcomes gay players.
