Anti Hopp Opinion: Solidarity against abuse is right but must apply to all VideoUnion Berlin fans latest to protest agains DFB and Dietmar Hopp
Without Hopp's backing, it is unlikely that a team from either of these towns could support a Bundesliga team, let alone require a stadium that can hold over 30, supporters.
In an attempt to drown out anti-Hopp sentiment by Dortmund supporters, a Hoffenheim employee attempted to play artificial background noise during a game between the two sides in This became known as 'soundgate' and Hopp called the whole situation "very embarrassing.
Protests from Dortmund fans at Hoffenheim games have escalated in recent years, with the German Football Association the DFB responding to the latest Dortmund display by banning their supporters from going to Hoffenheim games for the next two years.
This contravenes an earlier promise from the DFB that collective punishments would not be handed out and only individual supporters would be punished for their actions.
The ban thus resulted in supporters of other clubs escalating their own protests, with games from all of Germany's top three divisions experiencing anti-Hopp protests last weekend.
Anti-Hopp banners have been seen and chants heard at virtually every game between the two clubs ever since. This past weekend saw a number of anti-Hopp banners displayed, with the fans actually criticizing what they see as a breach of promise by the German FA DFB after it imposed a two-year ban on Dortmund fans attending matches in Hoffenheim over the repeated display of anti-Hopp banners.
Then-DFB President Reinhard Grindel had pledged in to end collective punishments of fans over things like the unauthorized firing off of flares inside stadiums, although this was never formally adopted as a policy by the German FA.
Bayern and Hoffenheim players effectively went on strike for the last 13 minutes of Saturday's match. One of the weekend's protests saw Bayern ultras unfurl banners in Hoffenheim, one of which used a term that translates as "son of a bitch".
This came late in the game, with Bayern up Bayern players and officials approached the corner of the stadium where the banners had been unfurled to try to get the supporters to take them down.
The referee led the teams off the pitch, as part of the DFB's three-point plan for dealing with abuse inside stadiums. When the game resumed, the players of both teams effectively went on strike for the last 13 minutes, passing the ball back and forth between them in the center circle.
If anything positions are hardening. Fearful of appearing to be 'paper tigers', the DFB and DFL have gradually been cracking down on any misbehavior in stadiums.
At Sunday's game between Union Berlin and Wolfsburg, the first of the three-step plan was invoked, when the Union fans displayed a rather harmless banner, which didn't personally insult Hopp.
The game was suspended while an announcement was made over the PA system. Shortly before the halftime break, the Ultras unfurled another banner — this time with Hopp in the crosshairs and a personal insult to the Hoffenheim investor.

Deutsche Welle. You get attacked on the internet. You encounter incredible hatred there, and also in the stadiums. The clubs are afraid.
They [the ultras] are not for football, but against it. They have to get out of the stadiums. Everyone knows the problem, but nobody does anything.
Speaking to Sport1 , Hopp said: "If I remotely knew what these idiots wanted from me, it would be all the easier for me to understand.
It's pointless. They live in another world. I don't want to and I can't talk to them, not at all. I don't know what to say to them.
