Sport was once seen as bringing people together.

Now if you don't have the right politics....

There's little point debating them.

I don't have any problem with players taking the knee. Hope our players do it tmrw.

The majority of Millwall fans aren't racist or football fans in general

Utter nonsense. Taking the knee is that matter is a show of direct support for Black Lives Matter. It is all part of the wider campaign of support the Premier League has organised.

Taking the knee is in direct support of BLM. What part of that do you struggle to comprehend?

So taking the knee didnít exist before BLM did it?

And when have Millwall been in the Premier League?

Is there a chance, Dan, that today's crowd at Millwall were, in fact, voicing their displeasure at how our beautiful game has been ruined?

I know it's easier and tidier to just say all 2000 of them are racist.

ĎRuinedí? By a 7 second gesture prior to kick off?

And all 2,000 of them obviously didnít boo. But everyone that did is a racist prick.

If the national anthem was played before each game and players chose to then kneel through that it might be linked to what happened in the US prior to this BLM nonsense.

But what we have seen in the UK is a direct act of support for the BLM movement. Out of interest, do you oppose BLM? Would you take a knee in support of BLM? And if not, does that make you a racist?

Around 150 racist incidents at football last year according to the HO and now apparently nearly 2000 in one go today.

Great progress.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

Itís a reaction to the George Floyd murder and that black livesí matter. Not the political organisation. Do you honestly believe that every single football player is doing it because of a political cause in the US?

I would take a knee alongside the other pros over here, yes. Do I support everything the political movement BLM stand for? No.
