So unless it's actually quoted then it didn't happen. Reports have said it was racist.

Anyone can report something. That doesn't make it a fact.

No of course not but it works both ways. Ive seen reports and none mentioned racism, you've seen opposite. Just show how the media works I guess.

Surely you know that in this day and age, "sledges" about someone's heritage are always going to be pushing the line.

Most definitely I do in this PC world. I for sure don't agree with it though.
Someone's always offended by something these days.

Probably the most correct thing you have written, well done!

This world is producing to many snowflakes, forget about truth and facts any more, its all about how someone feels now.

Italian Racists at it again

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... im-bananas

An Italian TV pundit has been sacked for saying that the only way to stop Romelu Lukaku is to give “him 10 bananas to eat”. Luciano Passirani, an Italian football journalist, was a guest on the Qui Studio a Voi Stadio show when he made the racist remark and the director of the Telelombardia show reacted immediately by saying that he would never appear on the programme again.
The show was debating Lukaku’s impact for Inter so far since joining Manchester United in the summer and Passirani said: “Lukaku is one of the best signings that Inter could have made. I don’t see another player like him on any other team in Italy. He is one of the strongest, I like him a lot because he has that strength: he is the twin of [Dúvan] Zapata at Atalanta.”

He then added: “They have something extra that the rest don’t have, and then they score the goals and drag your team forward. This guy kills you in the one-on-ones, if you try to challenge him you wind up on the floor. Either you have 10 bananas to eat, that you give to him, or …”
The director of the show, Fabio Ravezzani, said that Passirani had apologised but that that was not enough. “Mr Passirani is 80 years old and to compliment Lukaku he used a metaphor that turned out to be racist,” he said. “I think it was a terrible lack of momentary lucidity. I cannot tolerate any kind of errors, even if momentary.”
On the pitch Lukaku has been a huge success already, scoring two goals in three games as Inter sit top of Serie A. But it has been a troubled time off the pitch after he was subjected to monkey chants by Cagliari fans. To make matters worse, Inter fans then wrote an open letter supporting the Cagliari fans.

“You have to understand that Italy is not like many other north European countries where racism is a REAL problem,” said the statement, published on Facebook by a group who occupy the second tier of the Curva Nord at Inter’s San Siro home. “In Italy we use some ‘ways’ only to ‘help our teams’ and to try to make our opponents nervous, not for racism but to mess them up.”
Lukaku posted a message on Instagram after the incident in Cagliari, saying: “Many players in the last month have suffered from racial abuse ... I did yesterday too. Football is a game to be enjoyed by everyone and we shouldn’t accept any form of discrimination that will put our game in shame. I hope the football federations all over the world react strongly on all cases of discrimination!”

That's disgusting, NO EXCUSE for this behaviour!

Unfortunately still exists not only in Serie A but most countries around the world.
Unless FIFA bans these imbeciles, we will still be subject to this atrocity!

Avoiding what subject? I couldn't give a shiraz about the stupid sport and you want me to comment on tactics? shiraz off.
I'm only highlighting skip behaviour on international stage which the whole world despises.

Remind me how often teams here (any sport) have been fined, games halted, games forced into empty stadiums for racist chanting?

Now let's hear the same stats over in Italy.

Does the word hypocrite exist in your lingo?
