If the players want to do it what odds is it to anyone? I know some of you love a bit of racism but thankfully most decent people have had enough of it.

Quoted from TheRealJohnLewis
It will go on for as long as the players feel the need to protest, and it won't just stop because ignorant white people are easily offended by racial inequality.


Spot on

Why does it bother you?

It’s 10 seconds of quiet solidarity against racial injustice.


It bothers me greatly as it is politicising sport, something which we have been told by FIFA et al that should never be done, sanctions have been brought about Eastern European teams for doing similar in the past, yet because the horrid corporations such as PL and SKY have rammed it down our throats it's deemed fine.

It seems to be that if you do not take the knee you are instantly deemed by some as a racist, far from it just a realist.

The irony of white players like Patrick Bamford actually raising a fist whilst doing it is obviously lost on them, the fundamentals of BLM and its founders have nothing to do with equality.

I take my hat off to the Coventry and QPR teams who opted not to do it.

You’ll not be taking part in any minutes silence for remembrance day then, and demanding the iron-on poppies are removed from players shirts then yeah?

So, in short, no one knows how long these political protests are to go on? And no one is allowed not to tow the line, without being a racist. Quite worrying I think.

Not really the same, is it? One is a political statement trying to change things, the other is remembering the people who fought and died for our freedom.

I don't really care that players take the knee, but BLM doesn't send a message of equality to me.

Has anyone actually seen anyone make that claim? Typical fragile mindset, you’re not the victim here no matter how much you try turn yourself into one, embarrassing levels of cry-arsing

Our freedom to do what exactly? Freedom of speech? What happened to that?

What does it matter how long they go on for as players taking the knee has zero effect on you. No one is asking you to take a knee, so you don't have to tow the line, if you don't like it ignore it. However do not object to someone's inherrent right to protest for something they believe in.
