Liverpool's cheap publicity stunt

After the shambles that was the Evra racism incident and the recent Furlough debacle, looks like they are after some easy PR with the bending of the knee.

The USA's problems - a mess of their own creating, is not the worlds problem.

We have our own issues here that don't get the attention they deserve so I'd rather Liverpool did something to recognise for example the child sexual abuses, or the deaths of thousands in care homes in this county. Rather than cherry picking causes to get behind for PR.

Here's an idea - let's just keep all politics, causes, and world events out of sports entirely.

Would this incident have got so much publicity if the offender, which apparently he was for trying to use counterfeit currency, was white, Chinese, Mexican? Doubt it. I agree that the police officer totally screwed up but I find it hard to believe that he deliberately killed the man. I live in the UK where racial problems aren't quite as bad. It's not so long ago that the USA had a black president so what is the mentality of the rioters and protesters? Yes, you have a self-serving joke of a leader now who embarasses your country but torching everything isn't the answer. Just have Tanman impeached for improper conduct, move on and make the world a safer place again.

People in the UK die from police brutality so I think it’s a decent gesture.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It would be a decent gesture if Liverpool did this in a way that wasn't a shameful attempt to get in to the public's good books.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Do we have to approach every gesture with cynicism? It’s for a good cause so what harm is there by taking it at face value?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes we do Robb.

When causes are cherry picked to get behind, it says it all.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Let’s put it this way - does anyone actually lose out from Liverpool doing this?

The players asked to do this not the club

Hi, I would like to speak on behalf of humanity and say that you are an idiot. (Unless this was a Barry style wum)

I strongly suggest you do some reading on the subject.

Exactly.

If it was the club then, based upon the Suarez/Evra timeline, we could have expected this gesture in 2029.

Third person he's killed whilst on duty, apparently.

None of them were white.

Imagine running up to someone who just donated to Cancer Research UK...

“And what about Guide Dogs? Or Alzheimer’s? Do they not matter?”
----------------------------------------------------------------------

But what about the guides dogs and elderly with Alzheimer's?

the whole reason CK started the kneeling was during the national anthem because you are supposed to stand to show respect for your country

he said, "I am not going to get up to show pride in a country that oppresses black people and people of color."

so by doing this the whole Liverpool squad are basically saying they have no pride in England

not totally surprised one bit, also demonstrates they have zero understanding like most of the dimwits who copy this of what they're actually copying.
