Didn't say that and you know it. What is it about straw man arguments that so attracts you? Just deal with what folk actually say and then you will actually be discussing the issues as opposed to slinging Twitter like insults. Oh, and best leave deities out of it don't you think?


I have no problem if Coventry and QPR didn't kneel just as I support the choice of Town players to kneel. Do you respect their right to kneel if they want to?

Some of the younger players may feel afraid of repercussions from other players if they don't get down on one knee.



So absolutely, unspeakably triggered by someone kneeling down for 10 seconds they’re confecting scenarios where young players will be bullied for not joining in.

These people are absolutely deranged. I’d imagine the protests will go on until people can address the issue without soiling themselves like adult babies.

A lot of anger there,  I am not applying any pressure to go either way, to take a knee or not.  It is there choice, the pressure is coming from the anti-BLM side of this arrgument not those in favour.


Quote me the 'anger'. Very measured in fact considering your blithe ' ignorant white people' remark. My whole point is, as you say, that no pressure should be applied. Would it be O.K for me to include the phrase 'ignorant black people' in any context?

This thread just goes to prove there is to much politics (that's what this has become) balderdash in sport.
Just look at the nose dive US TV ratings for sport has taken.
It should stop now and get on with the flipping football.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

this gesture is so easily associated with a BLM hard left political agenda. If all players participate, surely that is reminiscent of North Korean worship of a despot during a military display. Hardly a personal statement.


You are just hilarious.

They did get on with the flipping football. After about 4 seconds of kneeling. I don't see how the latter stops the former. I wish it had done yesterday but it didn't.

I reckon they should keep doing the knee if it means the racists stop going to football.

I would rather have watched 90 minutes of kneeling yesterday. The kneeling was the best bit.

Of course! My whole gist is about personal choice over peer or political pressure. BP is their workplace. They have the same rights of employment as Tesco workers or anyone else. We have enough problems on the pitch without dressing room culture wars.
