Especially a group of middle aged white men, are there actually any BAME members of this forum?

My heritage is linked to Asia and Asian ancestors, whilst I don't class myself as a BAME member my background clearly is. This can make things difficult for when I hold an opinion regarding racism. People see me as a White British Male but they can't see my background unless they are told beforehand (which isn't most practicable). Like Hunk explained, sometimes online this can make things quite difficult and it also in part can make the "White people telling other people what is or isn't racist" a difficult approach too.

Surely with my background, do I not have a right to defend people who experience racism even if from the outset, I am not likely to or appear to others as not expected to be impacted upon by racism personally?

Not been here for ages, but we have at last found the definitive answer to this question, itís VAR.

Please keep it in the premier league and as far away from the EFL as possible

A lot of "not very social distancey" going on at the end of Wolves v Chelsea. Lots of handshakes, mingling and players swapping shirts at the end. It's almost as if there is no Covid in their world.

Makes it more laughable when they then do the post match interview at distance.

Hypocritical cunts. Everyone is a cunt tonight.

Sheff Wednesday fans not happy with Moses Adubajo after he was caught celebrating with/congratulating a forest player after conceding a goal in the 2-0 loss this evening.

Celebrating a goal your team has just conceded with the opponent who scored it does go a little beyond the usually accepted lines of decorum.

Granted, it doesn't look great but I see Sippo's point. I think it's possible many have become sensitised to so much shithousery in the top two (quite possible all) levels, that when an act of "sportsmanship" is now witnessed, several don't know what to do with themselves; instead they continue to be outraged.

I also watched the clip several times and I wouldn't really call it a "celebration", the player definitely acknowledges his opposing player (and mate) has scored but he also looks as if he is going to collect the ball. The pat on the back (appearing as a kind of physical "well done but get out my way mate") may have happened anyway.

All he needs to do is release an apology tweet like:
"In the game v Forest I made a mistake but happen to be friends with the player outside of football. However I'm fully committed to my role and responsibilities at Wednesday. I'm 100% behind helping guide the Owls to safety in the Championship.
#COYO #NeverABlade #WednesdayTilIDie"

Likely just a case of also forgetting that there were no fans present, yet still the odd camera...we must remember the average IQ of a footballer is not necessarily that high and regardless, are we all without fault?  Hmmm
