Was there even a mention on here when we didn't take the knee against Morecambe? I certainly don't remember anybody saying they wouldn't go any more or that they'd turn their backs if we didn't do it?

I've only seen critism for taking the knee, I've seen nothing for people not taking the knee.  I would say you are making it up.



I recall quite recently a West Indian cricketer criticised the England and Australian cricketers for not taking the the knee prior to a game - and that certainly wasn't made up! But f you think I made it up then check it out and prove me wrong.

The West Indian cricketer was Michael Holding and it was reported in several national newspapers. I won't hold my breath waiting for an apology for  allegedly "making this up".

Footballers, other sportsmen? Michael Holding critised the "lame excuses" and not the actual act of not kneeling.  Even if you do find 2 or 3 quotes to back up your very weak point, which I doubt, the pressure of enforcement is clearly coming from the anti kneeling side.

Did they or did they not "take the knee"? It was reported on BBC Sports, Sky Sports, The Guardian, The Cricketer, Wisden, Daily Telegraph and Evening Express. It even made The Belfast Times, Indiatoday and even The Hindustani Times! But of course I made it up.

2 red crosses to my question not sure why. Do people red cross you if they don't like the question. Could be they don't like or know the answer. Still no ideas though why people with free choice and such strong feelings played 3 competitive games without displaying that support and strength of feeling to BLM. it's just a question folks

Kick it Out campaign was about racism, BLM is not about racism, you obviously aren't aware or don't understand the fundamentals of BLM. Also what they hell are you on about switching on the TV and not recognising people similar.... you haven't watched much television over the past few years and the drive for diversity then.


So I don't understand the fundamentals of BLM and you do? And you're saying BLM is not about racism? Blimey.

I mean, wow.

It's about striving for liberation, freedom, equality — three things they wouldn't have to strive for if racism wasn't a thing.

But it is. Institutionally and politically. Inherently. Casually. Sometimes unintentionally. But if you want to simplify it to suit your own limits then fine. Continue living in your small world.

The I guess you only read this board. Formula 1 had a huge ding dong when drivers refused to take the knee, they've now stopped moaning, but still saying they should all do it. QPR and I think Coventry have been making national news for not doing it in their game. Cricket has had a spat, I think rugby has.
