I'm not even a fan of BLM but this is predictably depressing and shameful behaviour by a section of Millwall fans.

Take the knee or you will be denounced. Fascism masquerading as social justice. BLM have raked in millions in protection money from large corporations. Ironic really, given that one of their stated aims is to destroy capitalism. Get up off of your knees people.

Totally agree that it was depressing, shameful, and a lot more. But can you explain why it was predictable, Edward?

I suspect that what people would really like to accuse them of is racism. I mean, can it be shameful to have and express an opinion?

Ironically, against Derby during the miners strike, 3 blokes singing pro miners songs got dragged out by the Police for being too political.

IS it fair to assume that my last post was disallowed......ref?

For the record, I will say that I know Millwall fans and how we tick. It's really not racism, it's a, I feel, slightly tiresome desire to be different from the rest. I find it boring now tbh, but racism it's not and never ever was with them/us.
Look around the grounds when watching football on tv, 80%wear replica shirts, at Millwall it's about 0%, not even the kids wear them!

No. Boo at people taking the knee in support of anti-racism and your motivation will rightly be questioned. . A lot of people are aware of and disagree with some of the values BLM stand for, but this denunciation of racism has risen above that. This is not about BLM, it\s bigger than that, it's about fighting racism, which still is very much present in football as well as society. BLM were the trigger, they are not the actual cause.

Because I expected it to happen and then it did.

You're the one playing the racism card. If it's a desire to be different, it's quite puerile. There are more constructive ways to be different, why does it have to be a thing that most people, left and right wing, consider to be a problem and w ant to solved once and for all?

In the clown world we currently inhabit, your motivation for opposing many things (and voicing said opposition) will be called into question, by a certain virtue-signalling clique. That doesn't mean that you should not voice your displeasure. We already have various anti-racism programmes in football (and amen to that), but taking a knee because of something that happened 4,000 miles away is simply ludicrous (almost as ludicrous as a crowd of people in Trafalgar square screaming "hands up, don't shoot" at the unarmed British copper!). Sorry, somebody tells me to take a knee, they will be told in no uncertain terms to fluck off.
As for racism being very much present in football (and indeed society), this cannot be quantified or confirmed. There's widespread racism because....feelings. All those black millionaire footballers must be living a hell on earth. Clown world.
