In hot water here after comparing our defeat to man city to the holocaust.

Don't want to see him punished but if it is happening to whitey surely it has to be the same outcome for him

All equally true of course.

Although if those remarks were made in the original inquiry held - and published - by Yorkshire CC, then he would not have that privilege and could indeed be sued.

Re: Carlton Cole
I'd be a little more believing of the known racist, liar and pederast's accusations if he would make them outside of parliamentary privilege and open himself up to defamation actions.

'If Vaughan did say what is alleged (“there’s too many of you lot, we need to do something about that” then he (nor me) can have no complaints about BT's actions. It is not an uncorroborated claim either is it?'

What did he mean by 'you lot'? Nobody has spelt it out yet. Why? Because unless there was nobody in the group he allegedly addressed the remark to who wasn't Asian, then it isn't racism. And unless there is nothing that links that group other than their race, for instance all being young, uncapped or fringe players, then it isn't racism.

But, of course, the usual suspects not only believe Vaughan said it, but there is no possible way that 'you lot' can be used other than in a racist connection.

White Person gets sacked for something which there is no evidence of.

Wonder if the same will happen with coley or will he get let off because of his skin colour.

Re: Carlton Cole
So if Cole is let off because of his skin colour, why was Barton let off?

It's because what they said wasn't considered that bad. Simple as that. Race doesn't come into it.

You can ONLY compare what Cole has done with Barton - nothing else, because no-one else is being accused of saying what he said. You're just desperately trying - and failing - to make it about race when it's not.

And I've told you that I prefer women.

I make it easier for you to understand.

If you want me to compare it with joey b, fine. Both said the same thing. Joey shouldn't be involved in football full stop for his history.

Re: Carlton Cole
You're wrong because you're insisting on comparing apples with oranges - you could compare apples with apples, but you refuse and can't explain why.

Why won't you compare what Carlton said with the exact same thing? They committed the same 'offence', they're getting the same 'punishment'. Why are you trying to make more of it than it is?

I've proved that I don't like people bullshitting, that's all.

And I think Rafiq has got off lightly - but not scot free - as there is indeed an imbalance in the way issues of race are reported. That's said, you can't really talk about like-for-like punishments because he is not employed as a commentator. Like Vaughan, his reputation has been sullied though for sure - just look at the comments on here and elsewhere.

A religious sacrifical offering to the Gods

Re: Carlton Cole
How about what BT Sport have said about why the are cancelling Vaughan?

And I'm assuming the BBC will take an even harsher stand against Rafiq himself?

More importantly, do YOU think the punishment handed out to Vaughan fits the crime?

And how has Rafiq seemingly got off Scott free from his litany of misdemeanors?

Re: Carlton Cole
According to the BBC he was stood down because he was at the centre of a issue that was likely to discussed during TMS and, as such, his impartiality was tainted (my word) by that.

I don't know whether he will get paid. I assume he works as a contractor and therefore wouldn't if he is not providing his services.

My point was not the rights and wrongs of the issue - I was merely questioning the notion that he was sacked. There is a whole lot of nonsense spoken from both sides of the race debate and I just think its important that the facts of the matter at hand are not left behind. Not a particularly exciting or conclusive standpoint I grant you but one that is honestly held.

Why? What's the got to do with Carlton?

Bigfrank said that "whitey" would get punished for saying what Carlton said - but the FACT is that whitey DID say it a couple of weeks ago - and got moaned at and then forgotten, just the same as Carlton.

Bigfrank is wrong but won't admit it because he wants to make a different point. Bigfrank is upset about something that didn't happen, yet called me a hypocrite and a snowflake - oh, the irony.

All I've done is point out that he's wrong. I haven't passed any judgement about anything else. No crusade here.

You can take it at face value or not but MV has not 'had his career ruined' has been 'stood down' from TMS coverage of the Ashes. The language of the BBC statement hints that he will return after the current furore dies down. A contrite interview he has already given to the BBC is probably part of that redemption.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/59391682

There was similar outrage on there that Ollie Robinson's career had been 'ruined 'by suspension by the ECB following the discovery of some injudicious Tweets, He soon came back when the fuss had died down and I expect MV to do the same.

Re: Carlton Cole
I said to ignore the point at hand.

Why has Michael Vaughan had his career finished for being accused of saying 'You lot' 12 years ago, but Rafiq, for whom there is categorical, actual evidence of racism (I won't mention the other stuff) is being held up as a hero?

What's gone on there, On The Crusade son?
