Black players receiving
I am not racist, just bored to tear listening to the same thing, day after day
Bored! How inconvenient for you! Who’s forcing you to “listen” to it? No one!
I don’t know how you missed the bananas being thrown at players. The monkey noises. The chants of “Zigger, Zagger, Zigger (insert team name) have a …….!” ‘Cos I heard plenty in the 70s and 80’s.
What are your views of black players being abused on social media? Or logging on the see someone has posted a death threat?
Had a conversation on this with some mates today. One was saying similar to you, but he’d grown up on a farm in North Northumberland and worked in a bank in a rural market town. Another had worked and lived in London for ten years and has very different views.
Just because you haven’t seen a duck-billed platypus doesn’t mean to say they don’t exist.
Northumbiron—-You say that I am not forced to listen to all this stuff on TV and in the press, so what am I supposed to do then switch the TV off and do not read newpapers, OK then what if everyone started to crap in the street, are you just not going to look at them and accept that you have not seen it.
And regards the Black players being abused on social media, I do not go on it mate, but are you saying that well known
Yes there was a very small number of cases, but these were 30 or 40 years ago, so why has it taken all these years for it to hit the front pages and every News at Ten show, I have attended league football for 69 years, andthe only player that I can remember receiving crowd abuse was Charlie Williams, the Donny CH, and Charlie loved it more than the crowd and reversed the patter.
And as for not seeing a Duck Billed Platypus, I did see many exotic birds in Borneo, West Papua, Malaysia, Java and Thailand, but not all of them had feathers ha ha!
