Graeme Le Saux....

Recommended Posts


Well if saying "Poof" was the only thing Beckie did then I don't see that he will get into trouble really. I guess that players have said far worse things on the pitch during games. And I might be wrong but "poof" isn't the worst word I can think of.

As for Fowler, well it's just sad. He really seemed to make a huge effort to taunt Le Saux.

I've always liked Savage as a player but if he really enjoyed making fun of Le Saux for being gay (though he isn't) then I will think less of him from now on. Shame on him.

Isn't it time for players to take a stand and try to make it okay being gay in football? Considering that there's so many players today then there's bound to be atleast a few who isn't straight. Can't be fun not being able to express ones sexuality while playing football.

Actually, LeSaux went out of his way to point out that he doesn't think Beckham is homophobic. He used him as an example to point out that there is such a prevailing culture of homophobia that even a player like Beckham who has a large gay following and has been known to be gay friendly has used such taunts because they are so accepted and par for the course in the Premiership.

Beckhams spokespeople promptly denied that the player ever used such language on or off the field.

Players taunting each other on the pitch is as much part of football as cricketers sledging each other. Mostly just harmless banter aimed at trying to provoke somebody into a reaction, or to put them off their game. It does'nt mean that person has to be homophobic. Insults are, what they are meant to be, insulting.

Wayne Rooney (you fat ba$tard)

Ian Rush (offside, he's nose is always offside)

Matt le tissier (both)

Its just not PC to call people certain things. Spurs call themselves the 'y*d' army, yet if we call them y*do's we could be evicted from the ground for Rascism(don't get me wrong i'm not condoning rascism). But calling somebody a y*do does'nt mean i hate all jews(Is'nt Roman jewish?). Cheryll Cole was accused of being a rascist because during an argument with a toilet attendent she used the'N' word. The woman is married to Ashley for christ sake. Did she insult the woman, yes. Is she a rascist, no.

If i dropped anchor in poo bay i dont think i'd be to bothered about being called a poof, in fact i'd probably try and use it to provoke other players on the pitch. A little pat on the bum and/or a wink might provoke a reaction if somebody was homophobic. I'd have the oppositions hardman sent off every week.(theres even ammunition in the term 'hardman').

Being straight, if somebody suggested i liked to take it up the dirt box icon_eek.gif i'd just laugh at them. Like we do when opposition fans call us rent-boys. I just think people, in all walks of life need to get a grip, and stop being so bloody touchy.

These days, this world has become so pc it's gone way too far.

Beckie? That's the first time I've heard him called that. Is there something you're not telling us Moos?

Fowler is a scumbag. When he played for you-know-how, and ever after, my question was: "What's fouler than Fowler?" Answer: not a lot.

Moos. Even in these days of Politically Correct Idiocy, playing football is neither the time or place to ... express ones sexuality. Or do they do things differently over in Sweden?

I've always liked Savage as a player but if he really enjoyed making fun of Le Saux for being gay (though he isn't) then I will think less of him from now on. Shame on him.

Sorry I didn't know you'd been ill. Hope it's nothing too serious.

You misunderstood Lofty, over here they're all poofs - the wind up is calling 'em straight

All the blokes are poofs? What a waste of beautiful women but then again I see what a cunning plan you had moving over there.

You missunderstood Geezer. While all men in Sweden are "poofs" all women are "dykes". Some outcasts are "bi" of course but we don't speak of them...
