No, I am not kneeling because I will probably never get up again

However, I don't have a problem with watching BLM run its course because something else will inevitably replace it.

Freedom of speech works both ways, oh!!!!
I intend to turn my back minimum if I'm at a game.
If I wasnt with our kid I would be tempted to boo just to see the reaction. 15minutes of fame and all that.

I also will turn away or just cover my eyes whilst they're doing it.
They can kick anyone they like out so would be careful about booing.
It will be interesting if crowds up and down the country will boo if they continue with this when fans are back. My feeling is that apart from the maybe the odd fan here or there booing, most won't even if they don't agree with it.

Media shaming I meant.

I haven't read the whole thread, but the BLM movement is highly politically charged and divisive and world sport have made a mistake by making a stance. Should have remained impartial. 99% are not racist but many in the centre or slightly to the right strongly object to having a left wing agenda force fed to them on a daily basis my the media.

Regardless of your view, I'm pretty sure there will be a lot booing when the crowds return and it will have to be cancelled at that point.

That's the bit I meant with the andy Warhol quote as you know it only takes one picture.
Although it would possibly only take a few normies to get pilloried to get the ball rolling the other way.

I'm not being asked to kneel so makes absolutely no difference to me if players want to take a knee or not and 8 seconds of players kneeling doesn't make me angry or not want to watch football.

As it happens it's a bit of a limp expression of support now. Lost its effect totally.
Allied to the riots and law breaking is how I see it.

I agree with you - it is a bit boring now and likely having the opposite effect that it was meant to have.

Watching online yesterday, they only seemed to go down for 3/4 seconds before they were up and off again - maybe they are tired of it too!

Did you see the debacle at the start of the Wetspam v Toon game? Half the players stated to do it & the other half started the game.

Also, the commentator pointed out they were doing it under the banner of No Room For Racism. Seems like the premier league and other organisations are distancing themselves from BLM.
