Re: More PC Nonsense

Are they going to replace greylisting and whitelisting? Can't just ban the use of blacklisting.

Re: More PC Nonsense

What about Black Sabbath?  maybe they would have been forced to change their name and they certainly couldn't sing 'Black is Black'  Wink
Bing Crosby would have had a problem with 'White Christmas' as well I guess Sad

Re: More PC Nonsense

what about White Hart Lane in a predominately ethnic area Kiss
Quote
Voronin plays a ball into the box and straight into Gomes' arms. That will not impress Benitez and his side are rapidly running out of time.

89°
Sammy Lee has bent sent off the Liverpool bench! It looks like he said something that referee Phil Dowd disagreed with! Into three minutes of stoppage time at White Hart Lane.

88°
Benayoun and Torres combine and Liverpool want another penalty! The Spaniard knocked the ball against Assou-Ekotto and wants handball! Nothing doing!

86°
Defoe does well to win a free kick for Spurs and give them a bit of respite. But the ball comes back with Benayoun who finds Voronin in the box. He looks certain to score but Assou-Ekotto comes across and nudges him off the ball! Liverpool want another peanlty but referee shakes his head!!
