If you can’t answer the question just say. 
 

when did all of our players say it was in support of racism in sport? And again which sports witnessed a large rise in racism that made a minority of players around the world start taking the knee?

if you don’t believe me read this. Incidents of racism are on the increase so it is very important players continue to present a united front against this. Well done to them👍

Is that the same KIO whose chairman who urged players to take the knee over GF? 

 

But but Rashford said….

65% increase in racist incidents but according to you taking the knee is not about racism in sport.

Taking the knee was a reaction to GF death 1000s of miles away courtesy of some shit policing. 
 

And that was according to the KIO chairman 👍

Since BLM we have had plenty of racism incidents in UK sport, not least the Rashford abuse. To try and mis represent players reasons for taking the knee is being in denial that there is a problem and is very disingenuous.

Can you define plenty. And for the 3rd time what/where was the rise in abuse in sport around the world that made a minority take action? 
 

I mean in the link I posted there’s a player running around with a George Floyd statement under his top but apparently it’s to do with racism in sport.

I'm sure someone who posts on here used to say that if people stopped taking about it, then racism would dissappear 🙂

65% increase last season. Speaks for itself. What the fuck do you want, grid references?

Aye, I think some would prefer to brush it under the carpet in the traditional British way. Taking back control🤣

Why can’t you answer the simple question I asked you. If you don’t know just say. 

Because I’m not entering into your game of whatabouttery.  We have a growing racism issue in our game and the players are making a stand. The facts are unequivocal so why are you trying to misrepresent the players and suggest the underlying reason is not about racism in sport.

This increase while players were taking knee. Wasn’t very successful was it. No wonder they’ve jacked it in. 

Maybe racists don’t like the exposure so hopefully this has drawn them out so we can deal with more of them. Society should be thanking the players for this.

How the fuck is it whataboutery. People have claimed that players took the knee because of racism in sport. Where was this racism in 2020 and what sports. Why the sudden movement. We know KIO, news channels, football clubs etc have said it’s because of BLM/GF but apparently rashford and Saka and a few on here say it’s something else.

Taking the knee was and still is a load of sh1te. 
some made up rubbish from the BLM idiots. 
why aren’t they making a statement on that clown who stabbed that poor child on her way to school last week? 
Also they have done away with the takings 😂😂😂 

 

what’s that saying about you can take someone from somewhere

Aye players who’d never ever even thought of taking the knee then decided it was something that they must do after a US criminal was killed by cops…. I Wonder why they’ve now fucked it off while racism persist , perhaps the gullible and ill advised footballers have finally sussed it. Unlike those who continue to defend it. 

Mate you really should do at least a little bit of reading before you come on here making a tit of yourself. You’ve missed the important fact that taking the knee started in the NFL in 2016. 🙈😂

 who gives a flying fck if Floyd’s murder brought the topic up again. It’s irrelevant. 
 

if you’re going to start calling everyone else gullible, then you should really focus on getting your facts straight pal 😂

So he’s right then. Players over here didn’t think about taking the Knee till GF was killed.

What’s 2016 for to do with anything, British footballers players took the knee straight after Floyd was killed and in direct response to his murder, if racism was really the catalyst it would have started in 2016.  Gullible describes precisely your position.

Including fans on a Bolton wanderers fans website. Players will appreciate they can’t change all minds but the issue is being talked about and that is a result.

When I see the issue being talked about on here it never feels like a result has been achieved

Some folk go to church every Sunday convinced that an invisible man in the clouds will make their lives better.

Some folk kneel before a football match convinced it will end racism.

None of this affects me in any way.

Leave them to it.
