    Taking the Knee

    Posted by Hatterman on 10/10/2021, 13:02:25

    Whilst Iím all for dealing with Racism I wonder how many of the footballers ďtaking the kneeĒ will openly protest against the World Cup being played in Qatar one of the worst Human Rights offenders around ?

        I won't be bothering. Blatant hypocrisy aside, top level football is crap now - plastic and soulless. Can't even celebrate a goal properly these days..

        I don't understand when people make this remark.

        Do you bemoan it when people raise money for one particular cancer charity that they're not raising money for other cancer charities?

        What have you done to raise awareness about racism and / or human rights abuses in Qatar?

          I'm wondering why you're putting the emphasis onto a bunch of twenty-something year old men to take a lead on this.

          The decision to compete in this world cup and the last one despite an awards protest that was as corrupt as could be is down to the FA. Why should players be expected to take flak again when their own national association isn't taking a stand?

            Footballers are basically mercenaries. They'll play for the team that pays them the most money, and play where they're told to for financial gain and to further their footballing career.

            They will though speak out on domestic social justice issues when it suits them to.

              "when it suits them to"

              What, when it suits them to get a load of abuse? Because that is what they get, isn't it? And before you say they don't read Outlaws, I know - they get it directly via social media.

              I think it is more likely to be "when it is too important for them to not speak out, no matter how much abuse they get for it".

                  Nice racist hat, though. Fits like a glove and suits you lovely.

                The majority of premier league players are hypocritical wankers that are that simple they genuinely believe taking the knee is actually achieving anything. They'll all be happy to go to Qatar, unless of course there is a mass kick off from the public over Qatars human rights record, then expect a couple of the simple footballers will rub their own egos, take a stand and not go.
                On a sidenote, reports suggest around a third of PL players aren't vaccinated and if they remain that way won't be allowed into Qatar. Which will be quite amusing.

                  It's obvious, what do you think the PL players should do about Qatar given you called them "hypocritical wankers"? What, in your view, would be an approach they could take with integrity?

                  It wasn't a dickhead comment, it was an extremely simple question.

                    It was a dickhead comment, by someone that is, quite clearly, a bit of a dick head.
                    Quite simply I would like to see our players refuse to go. Qatars human rights record is shocking. The players are very keen to make a stance on racism, equality and respect at the moment. Travelling to play in Qatar would be very hypocritical to those morals.

                      Well it was a question, there was no opinion expressed, so if anyone is displaying tendencies towards an appendage-bearing head it's quite clearly you.

                      So, thanks for finally being able to answer it, it really shouldn't have been hard in the first place.

                        No problem. Thankyou for using that post to confirm I was correct. You are a dickhead.

                          If that's what you think out of that then you have much bigger problems than I have. After all, the only one I've got is some dickhead on the Internet calling me names.

                          I spoke of Qatar, taking the knee and covid vaccinations in my post, not sure why you felt the need to make a dickhead comment. It was a simple question. Which of the 3 subjects were you questioning?

                    Everyone knows the human rights issues in Qatar, I wonder how many of those wont watch the world cup in protest of it? What's good for the goose and all that
