    Haha, Joey Barton really is an idiot

    http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/12/05/joey-barton-considers-suing-samuel-gay-coming-out_n_2244958.html?ncid=edlinkukhpmg00000131

    To put it into perspective, this article was brought up on Football365s Mediawatch the other day:

    Is He Being Funny? He's Being Funny, Right? Right?
    We're really not sure what to make of a section from Martin Samuel's column in The Daily Mail today.

    He writes:

    'Could just one footballer please come out and be gay, so everybody can be really cool about it and the sport can get on with its life? Just one, it's not much to ask surely?

    'Football is beginning to sound a little desperate with its pleading. Rugby, cricket, they've all had their gay watershed moment. And until football does, too, it will continue to be presumed that the sport has not evolved enough to handle male homosexuality.'

    Erm, sure Martin, let's push someone out of the closet before they're ready so we can find something new to talk about. Is this a joke? Is he being funny? We're not sure. He continues:

    'So here's a thought. Joey Barton continues his quest for intellectual and social respectability. Why not come out as gay? Instant credibility, instant respect, untouchable by the Football Association or future employers. His past misdeeds mentally reprocessed and explained. Well, of course he put his cigar out in that bloke's face, Gary. He was a tortured soul, forced to live a lie.'

    Oh. It is a joke. He is being funny. Well, obviously he's not actually being funny, but perhaps we should take our moral, PC, pinko sensibilities and get a sense of hum...oh, he's not finished?

    'And imagine the new material. A never-ending treasure trove for Barton's Twitter feed: Alexander the Great, Leonardo da Vinci, Oscar Wilde, Lady Bunny.

    'And, let's face it, with that new accent, he's probably halfway there.'

    There you go. Bit of a silly French accent = half homosexual.

    And people wonder why no gay footballer has come out, eh?
    I think Joey has somewhat missed the point.

    I had to sit and listen to a Daily Mail-inspired conversation between two work colleagues today. One of them initiated the conversation by mentioning something he read in the Daily Mail about immigrants. The conversation evolved in to one guy saying with utter sincerity that he agreed with Hitler's policies on immigration and that this country would be much better off if our government took a similar approach to "dealing" with non-white British folk. The other guy agreed. At one point one of them said they hated immigrants so much they were planning on moving to Australia.

    Not sure Hitler was strictly known for his immigration policy.

    If I remember correctly, it was more, "Stay where you are, we'll bring the Reich to you."

    The same guy (who likes Hitler) also said he wanted the Taliban to blow up the Channel Tunnel because it would stop immigrants from coming in.

    Does he actually play for Chelsea?

    Which best describes him below:

    a) player
    b) leader
    c) legend
    d) all of the above

    Cabby in Cambridge the other day:

    I read the Sun, but it was too short, so I started to read the Daily Mail. But I found my outlook became so negative: I wanted to emigrate, everything was terrible. So I stopped, and my outlook got much brighter. It's just so reactionary!

    @ecureuil have you considered......you know...reporting them?

    evil prevails when good men (in your case, decent-ish man) do nothing.

    @ecureuil please audio record them and upload it to YouTube. Sadly there are far too many people in this country who still think in that backwards way.

    Poor from Santi but I'm glad our key player is avoiding a career ending tackle.

    Motd will be a must watch tonight for the total hypocrisy. They'll be all over Cazorla. If he was British they'd laugh it off.

    Somehow I doubt they'll call it 'the lighter side of football' again.

    Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker on Twitter:
    "He may not tweet about such matters yet but I think Alan Hansen will have something to say about Cazorla's outrageous dive for Arsenal against West Brom."

    Fair enough though, he should be criticised, just not singled out.

    You've got a real bee in your bonnet about this, and it's frankly bollocks. The media have (rightly) been giving Bale a really hard time about diving, as they did with Ashley Young last season.

    Also "avoiding a career ending tackle" is Bale's excuse so I don't know why that's valid for Carzola but not him, and given that Bale has been on the end of a couple of them potentially he at least has a precedent for that excuse.

    That's because there was contact on Bale and it was in the middle in the pitch, rather than a non-contact act of cheating to gain a penalty.
