I am extremely frustrated that shit like this happens even today.
Kevin Prince Boateng and all the other members of AC Milan did the right thing. Some might argue that what AC Milan did was unprofessional. But how do you expect them to be professional if one of them is assaulted by such intolerance?
Oh, also this was a fucking friendly game. I am not saying that game was worth abandoning. because it was a friendly game. Yet, I wanted to point out the irony that friendly games’ purpose is to promote fans’ participation and pleasure of watching players play, and it does have very little to nonexistent importance competitively.
This is not the only case, there are several cases where players were assaulted with racist acts of fans. Hell, I can think of several cases. Even top notch players like Eto’o and Balotelli could not evade this. This interminable trouble seems to have a very simple fucking solution. Whenever racist chants were called, referee can report it to FIFA or The football association of the country. Then, under proper review, punish the team with one match of no crowd game. Simple as that.
It just fucking angers me whenever shit like this happens. Just………. Fuck off, you racist assholes. STOP FUCKING RUINING THE BEAUTIFUL GAME
(Not real Robert Downey Jr., but fucking racism man.)
Shits that my mom and I hear at work everyday.
Thank you for your 3 cents.
ESPN did a clip about racism in European football for World Cup 2006. It’s full of information and worth a watch. I am posting this video, because I just heard the Croatian fans’ racist chants toward Balotelli.
If you can see in the video, racism in football is prevalent especially in Italy and Spain. Balotelli, being poor Ghanian immigrants’ child, got bunch of shit growing in Italy as a “black kid” who played football. Even when he was playing in Inter Milan, one of the best team in Italian league, he got racially abused everywhere.
Now, he is a part of the finest 23 football players in Italy, and he is there to represent his country. The opposition team starts monkey chants for him. Just imagine what he would have felt. Getting racially abused by international level.
UEFA fined Croatian Football Association. Okay. Cool. So what? What are you going to do with this player who is only 21 years-old and got racially abused by god-knows-how-many numbers of fans? I fucking hate it when one person blatantly says some racist shit to me.
It’s just not right. Let’s stop. Please.
