...and white people don't?


I’ve never heard any white player getting racial abuse but I can go back to Francis Jarvis at Batley have to put up with dumb monkey chants, the idiots were shouted down. I have to idea how much many people have to put up with and support taking a knee, I only wish it would help make a difference but from what I’m hearing and reading it seems not.

I remember that, was not pleasant at all.

Was that also the same game the referee had to be substituted? He got hit by a coin thrown from the crowd and laid him out. Apparently hit the pressure point on his neck.

I thought it was impactive at first but to be honest its feels boring now and somewhat tokenism . If they want to do it fine if not no problem to be honest .

Please elaborate. In what way did you find it was impactive and why is it now boring. Its last seconds. The players and some more than others appear to think its still necessary.

My opinion constantly changes on this one . Sometimes I feel like the subject causes more division rather than promoting harmony . Ie the protests in Leeds tonight are about what really ?
