How disappointing to see players doing this prior to yesterday's game. I would have liked to have thought RL players were above this type of sheepish behaviour, most Fax players were I know. How grown men can continue with this is beyond me. Get on with the rugby. :FRUSRATED:

Doesn't bother me in the slightest. I fail to see what the fuss is about. Booing them like some English soccer fans is ridiculous.

If players want to do it that's their choice.

Absolutely it's their choice but do it in the dressing room instead of foisting it off on people who have paid their brass to watch a rugby/football/cricket match. :?

Why don’t you have a conversation with Kevin Larroyer, Gadwin and JWH and understand why they believe there is a need to do this. Maybe talk to Rob Worrincy as well! The fact that there are people who have an issue with it would suggest they need to continue to do this

You need to chill out. Why so angry?

there is i think 30 seconds before each match for players to show what they think about racism for me how they choose to spend that time is up to them

Just to clarify: If your frustration is to do with the delaying of the game, and sheepish behaviour by the players, would you be booing and shouting "get on with the game" if you went to a game on Remembrance Day and there was a minute's silence beforehand that was observed by all the players?

If the answer to that is no and it's not an across-the-board disliking for symbolic gestures before a sporting event, then what is it about players protesting for 13 seconds against racial injustice that upsets you so much?

Why so bothered about a 13 second protest against racism?

Doing the black power salute is nothing to do with racism, it's political and in this context supportive of a terrorist group.
