"Of course, it’s right they want to fight racism, but sometimes they go to such extremes that, in my opinion, it’s counterproductive"

Absolutely spot on and the rest of that garbage written and the drivel from this prick numbers simply reinforce it.

If I walk down the street in Kingston I am lucky if I get away with a mugging, same in Cairo.

We may have a small problem but its fucking tiny by comparison to many places in the world
So it's extreme to ban a player for racially abusing another player.
Wow. I guess we have a difference of opinion regarding the meaning of the word extreme.

Getting close to not replying to people on here who proudly wear their racist badge and have no qualms about displaying it publicly.
If you have trouble interpreting the nuances of one persons word against anothers, cultural differences in linguistics and rational debate around punishments against a wider context of a criminal justice system........ then please feel free to ignore everything I say and don't actually reply.

Actions speak louder than words

Absolutely. String the cunt up in a room full of pissed off pointless wasps
It's come to my attention that players introduced onto the field of play during substitutions, are walking straight onto the grass without taking a knee.

Is this something that the Daily Mail could get their righteous teeth into, widening their usual remit of pleasant interference...they are afterall nearly always first to publish in the category of, who-gives-a-fuck-about-this...

You may be at a loss and it may be because you live in the US of Woke but it really is simple if you actually listen to the fans who booed.

They do it because politics should be banned from Sport permanently and the gesture of Kneeling and raising a fist in the air is historically political and started being used in this country again last year by a marxist organisation whose idol is a scumbag drug dealer and who want to defund the police but whose founders are creaming off the money these sad sacks send in as donations and using it to build a property portfolio.
You can't just decide to use it for something else and pretend that the political reason it was used in the first place does not exist.

Wear Kick its out T Shirts.
Point at an anti racism slogan on a T shirt
Have Anti racism slogans all over the stadium

No-one would object and there would be no booing.

People are booing not because they are racist but because these gestures ARE political whether people are using them to promote anti-racism or not and these footballers need to wake up and get rid of the gestures.

If I decide to use a Nazi salute to make a point and claim it is for anti-racism, would you object ? If I called you a racist because you booed it you would you then ?

Calling people racists because they are booing is lazy and ignorant. The fans are booing that gesture, not an anti-racism message but that does not fit the permanently offended snowflake agenda and allows people and especially Sky Sports and the media to use hours of airtime to virtue signal.

Not only shall I kneel in my living room tomorrow in solidarity with our football team in their stand against oppression and inequality, especially that lovely little chap Sterling who thoroughly deserves his MBE, but I'll be inviting twenty asylum seekers in to watch it, serving non-pork snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

We all have to do our bit.
Gold and Sully ? Gawd bless 'em. Saved us they did.
