F**king Hypocrite & More

29 Apr

For those of you who missed Sepp’s latest lip service yesterday, here it is.

This from a man who in 2011 said that there was no racism in football and on pitch racial abuse issues could be solved with a handshake. Then in 2013 said Kevin-Prince Boateng was wrong to “run away” when he walked off the pitch after racist taunts. In the same breath he said “there is zero tolerance of racism in the stadium, we have to go against that.

And don’t even get me started with this idiot’s homophobic views. He famously said that gay people going to Qatar should abstain and then tried to pass it off as a joke.

And then there’s the ongoing sexism. This is a man who “helpfully” suggested in 2004 that female footballers should wear tighter shorts to help promote the women’s game.

This out of touch corrupt bastard should have been forced to retire long ago. To see him acting all sanctimonious about the incident with Dani Alves when he’s done fuck all to address the issue (sorry campaigns are worth dick if you don’t back it up with concrete action) is galling.

Oh and back to the #weareallmonkeys campaign – someone has already launched a t-shirt.

BmY_Am1CAAA7FtaI really hope that the money made from these is going to an organization that combats racism. Anyone know?

And the parodies have already started…

Let’s how long it takes Sepp to forget that he’s going to do something about racism. Betting that happens in 3…2…1.

      There’s a post all about Real/Bayern. Feel free to share your joy there.

      I posted this rant long before kick off. 🙂 That match put me in a MUCH better mood.

      While I am super excited about our win, let’s not sweep blase lip service under the table either. This post was spot on.

    Sepp please call NBA Commissioner Silver to find out how to handle a situation. Please…put him on speed dial.

      I tweeted Blatter yesterday when the news broke about Sterling ban and said “Take note – this is how it’s done.” I wish that footy cracked down on the racists, homophobes, etc. as hard as Silver did yesterday. Hopefully seeing concrete action from other leagues will be a catalyst to change.
