Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

by TBM » 16 Jul 2012 10:56

Whilst i understand Kes is on the wind up he does kinda have a point....

People saying Terry should be banned for saying the racist word, when in fact the court found him not guilty and believed his story of just "repeating what he thought Anton had said to him" - whether that is true or not you can't go banning Terry without evidence. Then i read yesterday that in light of the lack of punishment currently being issued some "top black representatives" are talking about breaking away and setting up a new anti-racist group within football.......why do they all have to be black? - what would they do if a white person gets racially abused?

Based on the court evidence, Anton Ferdinand should be charged with bringing the game into disrepute due to his taunting of Terry over his affair with Bridge's missus.... possibly Terry too if he had admitted to any non racist bad language.

On Sky Sports news this morning, the journalist doing the paper review (can't remember his name) suggested that Rio Ferdinand might be on charges too as during the trial he posted things on twitter like "film of the day: Liar Liar" and also the ""I hear you fella! Choc ice is classic! hahahahahahha!!" reply.

tbf he could well have just been repeating what Anton said to him unless there is video evidence showing Anton didn't actually speak

Surely you must be aware that racism may only be towards a coloured person. If a black person abuses a white person, it is never racism, it is simply "equality".
So when they say "cracker", "whitey", "cracka ass" and "white trash", that's just colourful language which we all have done so much to deserve by oppressing these poor coloured people for so many years.
Nevermind if YOU as an individual have NEVER done any harm to a coloured person, we must all as white people accept our collective responsibility for things that happened 500 years ago, we are all equally guilty by virtue of being white. White is evil! GET WITH THE PROGRAM!


Seen as this twat had a racist post removed on the boxing thread, and continues to post this sort of drivel, isn't it about time he was banned?

Surely if you ban someone for being a twat then there'll be nobody left?!

Watched 10 minutes of it and it was absolute bollocks.

John Barnes blaming racism on his coaching failures, just LOL. I really can't see how he can get away with saying things like he would have been given more time as a coach if he was white.. Phuck off you mongrel :!:

It wasn't absolute bollocks, but it came very close. I couldn't buy the whole PFA rep being so blind to the instutional old boys club mentality. If Clark really is that naive then I'd want a new rep quickly.

That all said it was a BBC3 documentry :lol:

I saw 6 mins and it was shocking. Barnes "if you're white you get a chance but if you're black a couple of defeats and they get rid of you". Not really true, is it John?

Tbf I don't think I made it as a pro footballer, because I haven't got blue eyes, and blonde hair and am slightly tanned. :cry: :cry:

Out of interest, does ‘Terry’s Law’ apply to other offenses? “I’m not raping you”, “I’m only stabbing you sarcastically” etc.

That gets taken care of under Bramble's Law unless you're unfortunate enough to get Chedded by the prosecution.

John Barnes was sacked from Tranmere and Celtic becase he was rubbish, not because he was black.

Exactly. I believe black managers have been given chances in the game - if they were any good they would still be in managerial jobs now. To allude that football clubs hierarchy are old racist bigots is playing the race card imo. Nobody cares what colour/race the manager is (not in this Country anyway), it's all about results.

Didn't see the programme so tell me to shove it if you wish, but isn't the point that there are few black managers because they aren't getting the job, rather than when they get the job they fail?

You're talking as if you can't move in the UK without tripping over a failed black football manager. To "still be in managerial jobs", they would need hiring first, mate. Not saying there is a huge conspiracy but John Barnes being shit doesn't exactly wrap the case up for me.
