Remember the John Terry nonsense? There was the racial epithet no one heard, the trial in which the district judge repeated the same phrase no less than 9 times in his judgment before acquitting Terry. Then a black player was charged, this time by the Football Association, for the same sort of nonsense
Most recently, Anton Ferdinand refused to shake hands with both Terry and Ashley Cole
when they met again at the Queen's Park Rangers Loftus Road ground, obviously still in high dudgeon. If he could see what was going on at Chelsea, he might just have a heart attack.
After reading a report here
, a Chelsea fan who wishes to remain anonymous sent the current writer the scan below. No, they don't look alike
, they appear to have been made individually.
Racial overtones aside, one can hardly blame the fan concerned for taking umbrage at the fact that Terry was put in the dock over something as ludicrous as this. Doubtless there will now be another police investigation, raids, charges, and even more hysteria. We should though be thankful that it's only a mere soccer player being guyed here and not somebody important like the bloke at the centre
of the current wave of riots and killings sweeping across the world. Peace be upon him.
One question should be answered, is this racial bigotry, or Chelsea fans reacting against a man who "grassed" a fellow player? Last year, an elderly woman was charged with the heinous offence of placing a golliwog in her own window
in what was clearly a dispute between neighbours that had got out of hand. After a review at the highest level
, the imbeciles at the Clown Prosecution Service decided there was no case to answer
, as there should have been in the John Terry case. Now can we please put this nonsense to bed for good?
