No football isn't racist if it was only white players would be earning the big money but thats not the case.

On the pitch where the pressure to win they probably will let slip a racist comment but on the whole i wouldn't say it was.

I dont see how football is as racist as the next sport. Plenty of sports have never had any racist issues at all in the past 10 years cricket, basketball, gaa, I personally cant remember any racist events in  Irish Rugby.

 

It changes from country to country, and some sports have a muddy past, but I think soccer is the only one I know of that has current racist problems to the level it has.


But I think its some countries more than others and some teams more than others, and that stems from the top down to the bottom. If the management and team dont support it then it wont happen.

 

I was a football ultra supporter in Europe, and we would chant about everything to get a rise, was it racisim or a pure hatred of other teams that would make us say anything to annoy them? It didnt matter who you were, black white, asian, we would say the most vile things about you, your history, your culture while being very protective of our own asian, black, white fans or players.

It's the primitive tribal mentality that extends from sports teams to cliques to religious sects to nations to any other area where mankind can form opposing groups.

To gaming, explains why so many racist remarks in gaming. Foul business gaming probably more primitave and backward than religion and football. I have heard far worse in gaming than I ever did with my ultra football suporters, must attract a lot of primitive backward minds.

Not really, like I stated, other sports dont have the issue. Soccer isnt the most popular sport in Ireland, its the 3rd most popular sport, yet its the only one with any significant problems to do with racisim or violence.

 

Maybe its the opposite, the backward minds are attracted to football and gaming. Gaming is the worst for racisim by miles so it would obviously have a draw to the most simple minded people.

That's true. Maybe I should have said "enough people of a certain class".

Gaming has the additional unfortunate property of offering offenders the blessing of a shield of internet bravery. In football, if you're going to be racist, I guess you best be able to defend your ignorance with brawn and/or strength of numbers.

 

However gaming allows even the most socially awkward, inept physical weed adequate platform to illustrate their bigotry without fear of reprisal or consequence.

The question isn't whether football as a whole is racist because it isn't. The question is whether some of the knuckle-dragging cretinous morons who are paid a fortune to kick a ball around, snort coke and bang hookers in their spare time are racist. The answer is overwhelmingly that they are.

 

Just in the same way that if a pikey wins the lottery they are still a pikey: a yobbo with no education paid to kick a ball around is still an uneducated moron with uninformed views regardless of what you give them. 

 

I hope that draws a line under the matter.

They have just given it this title to get people talking about the show and get high ratings. It will be some bloke going to Eastern Europe and filming their ultras during a game and then commenting on their hand gestures and chants. Although they are racist, doesn't for one minute mean all of football is racist. Stupid title imo.
