If that was Big Ron he'd have been up against the wall and shot

 

If it was Big Ron he'd have uttered a series of racial slurs.

 

And then be hung drawn and quartered despite being probably one of the men most responsible for bringing black players into the English game.

So what if he was? He got everything he deserved imo.

No losing his job was expected and about right and deserved for the incident.

 

 

 

The amount of general and continued castigation he got (and still gets) from moralizers with their heads stuck firmly up their own arse was unbelievable and completely OTT; you'd think he'd killed someone.

 

Especially when he'd probably actually done more for equality than 99% of the people sat so primly on their high horses and ready to cast judgment.

He did some TV programme a while after the Desailly incident where he failed to see where he went wrong...and with regards to bringing black footballers in, I remember reading that he singled them out from other players (made them sit at the back of the bus etc)...all part of 'banter' of course but still casual racism all the same.

 

I don't think he's a bad person, just a man with mildly bigoted ideas that can't see that the world has moved on. And if he can't realise that and change his attitudes then he's not going to get back into the limelight.
