I think there's a clouding of the issue here that is convenient for some people to hide behind.

There is a problem with racism in sport and in society generally.
The BLM cause got hijacked and has attracted adverse publicity.
It is possible to be anti-BLM and still not be racist.
I abhor racism in any form, but I'm unimpressed by the BLM movement.

I’m black and have no time for BLM. Equality yes, anarchy and defunding the police no.

You can’t do that. One or the other I think. Then never change or acknowledge an opposite opinion ha

It’s not. That’s the same as saying raising a fist is the black panther symbol. Just because a group adopts something doesn’t mean thats what it fully represents 

Hence the term "useful idiots". Well meant or otherwise it gives extremely bad people a legitimacy they don't deserve.

Sorry, yes, of course. Thanks for reminding me of the rules

I'll go back to booing black players, because the BLM are nobs.

It isn't good at all.

Bizarre isn’t it. If they stop now because of booing do people think that’s it and it will stop. As mental as it sounds if folk are that against it they should clap or kneel for a few weeks in solidarity and that’s the way it will stop being part of the routine

I went to both England games at Middlesbrough, Southgate and the players are told by the FA to take the knee (allegedly), I didn't boo or clap, for 10 seconds I stared at the floor, easy 

 

Middlesbrough don't take to their knees in their league games.

Euro 2020 spoiled by politics.

Teams run out, shake hands, toss a coin, kick off, fucking proper simples, i guarantee nobody will boo and we can all enjoy the football

People use their brains and don’t boo anyway and then all that can happen.

Football and politics has never worked and never will, the knee needs sacking off, then we can get back to the beautiful game.

No knee no boos, fortunately or unfortunately that's the only way it will stop, you can argue about it until you are blue in the face. The knee has exasperated the problem, it's not the solution.

I could argue till I’m blue in the face but it doesn’t bother me so I’ll hold back ha.

Id be more interested in booing VAR. something that actually ruins the game.

I agree. Brilliant. He really does speak with a perfect blend of intelligence, passion, tradition and patriotism, while getting over some really important social messages.

Now let’s hope he gets it right on the pitch.
