Happy Face 29 Posted October 24, 2005 Share Posted October 24, 2005 Good players get no grief, regardless of creed or colour. Mostly, in most cases it is the case. However, the point remains. Black players on Tyneside have more work to do to win fans over than White ones. Black players get still get tacit abuse which we seem to accept e.g. bling bastard. White ones dont. why? Acceptable? 48733[/snapback] Whey that's cos you couldn't rightly describe any of our white players as bling! I never heard about Stephen Carr asking for the coach to be stopped so he could go and get his diamond earrings and I never saw Andy O'Brien out on the tiles, let alone swanking it up in VIP with the dolly birds (Jesus, I've turned into me fatha) and spread all over the newspapers. As has been pointed out, your argument that shit black players get more grief than shit white ones says more about you than anyone else in St James'. All shit players get grief, but you only take to heart the grief given to black players. Around me there have been one man crusades against virtually every player at the club. Carr, O'Brien and Butt have all victims but also good players like Bellamy, Robert and even Shearer. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
