So if an employee good home and is racist on twitter or elsewhere should the company and every other employee get punished?

It is ridiculous beyond belief to suggest a football club should be punished for their fans.

There is not a football club in the world that does not have racist fans.

You punish the guilty party properly not someone else
Yes. Because the solutions being used so far are working so well.

Pretty outrageous this stuff still happens, personally if guilty I feel a player should be banned permanantly

If they’re serious about zero tolerance then it’s the only suitable punishment. Will never happen though.

Another incident

This shit is so exhausting to think/talk about. Would love to know exactly what was said here, but fantastic show of support by Diakhaby's teammates. It's so depressing to know you can't just live your life in peace without someone targeting you because of the colour of your skin *sigh*.

If a player is found guilty they should be banned for life. We need to punish the people responsible and no excuses

So what's your plan? If we want City out of PL, we can just pose as City fans with a banner like that about Pogba or Rashford and we are champions? If it will work like this I go and order my first Aguero shirt.
I mean, it’s still racism isn’t it?

If it means that every club gets banned because another team’s fans do this and then we end up with no football at all then perhaps fans might decide better because of how ridiculous it would be.

Kind of feel like a full blown banning of everyone might be the only way of stopping this. If dickheads wanna play stupid games, let them win stupid prizes. Might get those that aren’t racist but won’t do anything about those that are to rise up if football goes down the pan and that’s what we really need.

All it should take is one ban and players shouldn't do it again.

They'll cower.

I agree, and I actually think once we see one player banned for life, with the authorities showing that they’re serious about it, then other players might not consider doing it again.

Somehow I doubt it. Especially if someone has those views and are in the heat of a game

Literally every week there is some sort of racist activity happening either on social
media or in the game (less in the game of course). This so called campaign against racism in football has been a farce.

Just all talk and a few meaningless gestures.

Behind the right goal post as "Whiteside shoots!"
"Get in .... again!" @BeforeKeanetherewasRobson on another racial incident
You know if you reply, I see it anyone (without the tag)?

As someone else (sensible) posted, wrong thread. But you knew that....

(Noted).

And just noted you deleted the part of my post that made it perfectly clear it was a mistake.... noted.

So, allegedly Arnautovic screamed:
"I f***ing your Albanian mother"
after his goal vs North Macedonia.

Racism or just stupidity (or both)?

UEFA are "investigating", he could be banned from the tournament

He should be banned definitely, racism or not. He acts like a mad superstar eventhough he's always been plain average. His antics after scoring were pathetic.

Arnautovic is a right prick.

His father is Serbian, and North Macedonia is about 25% ethnic Albanians.

The Balkan's spats will never stop.
Serbians vs Albanians
Bulgarians calling Romanians gypsies.
All Balkan countries disrespecting Muslim nations, etc.
Did FIFA do something when Shaqiri was showing the eagle to the Serbs? No.
Arnautovic was stupid to go and yell whatever he yelled after he scored. If he's so proud to be Serbian then go play for Serbia you tw@t.
But he won't, would he?

Arnautovic is as dumb as a rock, he has a habit of acting like an idiot.

so was the glik walker thing racism cause I'm seeing a lot of coverage suggesting it was
Yeah, plenty of people are saying walker refusing a handshake was racist.

Not sure about that but I don't think Glik gave a crap about it. He just shithoused his way throughout the game as the vintage Glik would do which was great.
