    Didnít take the knee prior to kick off in the Sky Championship game last night.

    Sky tried to make a big thing of it at 90 minutes, but Mark Warburtonís response was admirable and hopefully will strike a chord with other clubs. When pressed why they didnít do it he pointed out perhaps theyíd like to talk about all the work Rangers do in the community in West London and have done for many years rather than one specific gesture.

      I thought it had now become a permanent thing and is just part of the match day routine?

      As in pointless.
      I hope you meet someone your height, so you can see eye to eye with someone as small as you!

      Then it's probably made its point and run its course. Maybe replace it with a permanent BLM logo somewhere on the shirt for those that REALLY need reminding of the bleeding obvious

      I canít see any reason to think it bothers the op reading his post.

      Why have you missed the point of the opening post?

      It’s in danger of losing its meaning, it’s emotional context wrought from a human tragedy played out over hundreds of years... by repeating it every week at every level of sport, for me, it dilutes it’s impact and becomes, as others have said, an empty gesture of sorts along with so many other pre match rituals. It would probably be more meaningful to mark key dates by taking the knee or doing at the start of each season to mark how the game intends to move forward. Or by simply making actual tangible changes and irradiating racism everywhere?!?

      Simply is probably the wrong word isn’t it? It’s not simple that’s the problem, ingrained things are hard to remove and that’s the issue. Too many at the top of the tree represent the worst of humanity, so expecting major cultural shifts when the western world in in the hands of errmmm perhaps the wrong kind of people is perhaps expecting too much too soon. It’s a complex journey and one it’s hard to comment further on as a white guy from a fortunate birthplace and family.

      I will do the best I can to be the best I can.

      The majority of football clubs do excellent community work, can’t really see the point Warburton is trying to make.
