we need more of this kind of thing ! it's all far too pc and boring these days
Needs more Benny Hill music.
Deserved the red because it’s just pathetic and footballers are childish ****s that’s not on.... but that manager did lean his shoulder into the player
Player got a six match ban, apparently. Seems a bit excessive.
You get less for being publicly racist
You should get less for saying something "offensive" than for laying someone out ffs
What's it come to when this type of mentality is at the fore?
Talk about mental frailty!
Would you rather, as (presumably) a white male, be called a "White trash honkey" to your face?
Take a swift right hook to the jaw?
Because I would be Honkeying it up all night long if given that choice!
Whatever happened to sticks and stones?
A Lot of fuss over nothing, hand bags at best. Makes for a few minutes of amusement then player and manager shake hands at the end. Move on, nothing else to see here.
Being called a white trash honky is laughable as a white bloke. It's not a comparable situation.
The same applies to similar insults about straight people when compared to gay insults and slurs.
I think his point was is calling a chinaman a chink worse or giving him a fist to the face.
I know id take the slurs all day long compared to the latter
White English people don't face any meaningful discrimination or have a historic basis of being shat on for their skin colour, generally speaking.
Someone calling me a white trash honky is still being racist, but it hasn't got any punch behind it.
That's probably why it's never happened. Everybody knows that it's not a damaging insult.
Nobody got punched.
Football is a physical sport. Contact is inevitable and there will be occasions when people get a bit rough.
This is expected and just part of the game, even when punishment is warranted.
Racism isn't part of the game, shouldn't be expected and deserves to be stamped out.
They're not similar and the comparison is facile.
A man was shoulder barged. Would you prefer that or a two-footed, studs up leap to the ankles?
This bloke got a six-match ban. A straight red is three. Punishments aren't always based on physical outcomes.
Don't really read much into these sorts of things but found this interesting:
Shows how poor Everton have been relative to their ambition and money spent, and makes Sheffield United's start look even more impressive. Our win there looking better by the week.
Not in the UK no, because its a country with a majority white population.
Though I have been called a "white devil" before because someone wanted to book a repair for their gym equipment but got angry because I wouldn't guarantee that the engineer would be black, and he wouldn't allow a white person in his house.....this was in Northampton
I guess I was more shocked than offended, though.
Amongst players ffs! Not when you are standing on the sidelines!
Depends surely. There are words you can say that merit a worse punishment than landing a punch on someone.
And thats why this world is ****ing insane!
There isnt anything that a person could say to me that I would rather take a punch instead of.
