VP's latest activity

  • VP replied to the thread Aston Villa vs Manchester United.
    This is a 1245 am start and I can't wait for kick-off. It feels surreal to look forward to watching United.
  • VP replied to the thread Cancel Culture.
    There are several reasons why cancel culture is a genuine menace: Angry internet mobs can get it horribly wrong (see this); mob justice is not social justice Cancel culture distracts from real, systemic issues by dumbing down discourse to...
  • VP replied to the thread The "lazy black player" stereotype.
    Not sure I understood My point is that football has a racism issue as this study confirms - but it has also made progress in the last two decades
  • VP replied to the thread The "lazy black player" stereotype.
    Am I the only one who sees the report's results as a pleasant surprise? I expected the bias to be much larger.
  • VP replied to the thread Winston Churchill.
    Ludicrous. This is literally PC gone mad
  • VP replied to the thread Should we take the FA Cup seriously?.
    Actually for cup trophies, all teams experience the new conditions equally so I don't think the value of the competition has been hurt. Other competitions though, like the league, where some teams have played more games behind closed doors, have...
  • Interesting - I read this analysis yesterday which suggested that race matters for police violence but not in shootings (https://www.wsj.com/articles/what-the-data-say-about-police-11592845959)
  • It may be legal but it's still not a nice thing to do (much like flipping the bird). Her bizarre reaction seems like a nervous breakdown which makes not recording it (and publishing it on a social media platform) all the more the decent thing...
  • When did recording people without consent become an acceptable thing to do? A man following a woman to her home and taking a video of her crying (and refusing to stop) is clearly being an aggressive prick.
  • VP replied to the thread Fantasy Premier League 19/20.
    Lot of folks with Lundstram in their teams. But isn't he no longer a guaranteed starter or have I missed something?
  • I think the problem is in organization culture which is almost impossible to change (India's police faces the same problem). Only way may be to destroy and restart.
  • VP replied to the thread Cancel Culture.
    And costly. Loads of gyms cancelled their subscriptions which will presumably hurt regular crossfit employees. But who cares about livelihoods when sanctimonious twats on Twitter can feel good about themselves.
  • VP replied to the thread 8 minutes and 46 seconds kneel.
    I said there's racism in the UK and implied that should be the focus of a UK-based organization like the Premier League. This is a global issue and global awareness is important but this is also an issue that manifests itself differently in...
  • VP replied to the thread 8 minutes and 46 seconds kneel.
    Feck off - I didn't say anything remotely close to what you're implying and even clarified it later. This isn't the YouTube comments section or Twitter - try to engage with what people are actually saying.
  • VP replied to the thread 8 minutes and 46 seconds kneel.
    Oh didn't know that.. if it's broader protest about racism than the Premier League should definitely participate.
