- Is football big enough?
…to show some grown up behaviour?
So Feb 11 is L’pool vs Man U. How about managers together with Suarez and Evra making a public statement of apology. Meet on the pitch together, (poss agree to differ), apologise, shake hands and move on.
This is not to justify Sepp Blatter in any way (before another racism argument starts) merely to show that they all have some balls!Posted 6 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
Public statement of apology? It is to laugh.
Would expect to see a handshake between Suarez and Evra though. Tbh that would probably be the best thing rather than have the whole sorry affair rumble on with position statements and official apologies. It’s case closed now.Posted 6 years ago
it would be nice but it is as likely as this happening in stw or someone accepting that someone else may actually have a point
Given the climate I would be happy for th game to pass without racist chanting at evra if he plays [ that is a dig at football fans not scousers]Posted 6 years ago
At the end of the day, United v Liverpool is always an…. ahem… ‘fiesty’ affair. And that’s a good thing. A bit of pasion in what can be a very bland premiership. Though it rarely delivers good football. Just lots of cards.
This whole thing will just add to it. Unfortunately there are elements in both teams support who insist on taking the level of terrace chants down to disgraceful levels. You know the ones I’m on about. I’d like to see that being properly addressed. The clubs taking it seriously. People getting lifetime bans from the grounds, etc.
Suarez has been made an example of. Maybe making an example of a few ‘Fans’ in conjunction would be a good ideaPosted 6 years ago
What is racial discrimination?
The 1976 Race Relations Act makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against you on racial grounds. Race includes:
ethnic or national origins
Under the Act, it doesn’t matter if the discrimination is done on purpose or not. What counts is whether (as a result of an employer’s actions) you are treated unfavourably because of your race.
The Race Relations Act protects all racial groups, regardless of their race, colour, nationality, or national or ethnic origins.
to be fair I thought as you did but i googled before posting 😉Posted 6 years ago
