Do you think this 5-10 second act will continue to ruin peoples' day when the pre and post match rituals of sessions in the pub return?

If they're going to explain the reasoning for a 5-second action on the website, I want an explanation of every goal celebration too

One thing is for sure, it would be nice to get in the pub pre & post game, and it would be a refreshing change to talk about the football other than politics and racial issues/tensions.

You know, like it used to be.

Happy Football Days 🙂

Why is it childish? We are informed who a minutes silence is for if there’s going to be one. 
 

But like you say let them do what they want but there can’t be any complaints if there’s booing unless the player/club has made it clear why they’re kneeling.
 

Looks like NIC will be busy grassing when we’re finally allowed in 

Again, this is going back to assumptions being made.  Booing someone based on an assumption.  Seems a bit daft to me.

Because the club community officer has said kneeling in support of BLM? So it’s not an assumption really. 
 

But if the club don’t want that stigma of fans booing, which I’m sure they don’t, then issue a statement or do the linked arm stance. (See Millwall)

Bingo!

Maybe different players are doing it for different reasons.  Maybe clubs can publish a list of each squad member and their reasons and once this has been published then fans can point at specific players and boo.  They'll need to be quick though to get it done in 5 seconds.  Rapid fire booing.

... OR the fans can just respect it, or ignore it, or mutter "wankers" under their breath for those 5 seconds and then just get on with their lives and there is no controversy and the world is a nicer place again. :)

Deary me 

Ok imagine being Sharon, you’ve seen the uproar that has been caused at Millwall. They nipped it in the bud pretty much straight away but that stigma will stay. 
Now as the owner of the club surely you must be thinking “I don’t want my club being associated with booing, it’s obviously unclear what the message is so let’s issue a statement that says kneeling covers all colours/religions”

If a player wants to come out and say I’m only kneeling for blacks they can do (they won’t) 

Until it’s made clear, which is massively obvious it’s not, then you can always expect a boo from some. 
 

If Sharon has a social media rep they will be able to relay to her what some of the BWFC fans groups are saying with regards the matter

Aye, looking forward to it - propping the bar up, paying cash and looking down the barmaid's top.

Or theyre pissed off footballers are taking it up on themselves to display support for the recent movement which has been hijacked by far left groups and has included a summer of destruction.

Maybe they dont like the fact the gesture continues to create divide on the issue when in their own personal lives its as multicultural as you get down then there? 

All one big community, a masively diverse mob of lads that have travelled the country together, best mates, family members, mixed race familes etc, all one big strong community that have a reputation for just that. Black, white, indian whatever theyre all together. They support black lives every single day and vice versa. 

They go to the match and youve got players that far from detached from any life struggles making gestures, supporting a movement that for them simply isnt there.

Youll say its ignorant to think like that,but its really not. Its life.

 

Its a section of life, stop justifying pal. Its ignorant to think life is like that....oh

Your experience is so narrow in what is being discussed. Im not saying its not valid, but this isn't about what you think it is.

Also, whats wrong with London now?

QPR player doing the black power salute after a goal against Millwall.... Don't think an email will be needed for that one. Definitely political, surely racist.... but mainly counter productive. 

      

Fucking hell....have you been locked in the shed mate with the Leigh Lothario ?

This. Let’s get on with the linked arms stance. Most people can see that kneeling is associated with BLM and many fans aren’t supportive of certain elements of that. People can say “oh but kneeling is against all racism” yet  you have the media, players and our own club community officer saying kneeling is in support of BLM what are we to think? 

The club statement is from june

Maybe we need a new one

Actually, its nice these things being discussed. There are still loads of folk who feel uncomfortable. Im still glad football is forcing these problems into life.

Why is anyone upset about a black power salute? More power to them.

pretty sure a black guy was the most powerful man on the planet not long back. What kind of power are you implying that “them” have
