I think its kind of problematic kicking Vranjes of the team, so I will bite(second attempt at this as I accidentally closed the first write up when I was almost finished - argh
1)He actually lives there, pays his taxes there and comes from BIH. Not like the posters here or some of the diaspora players.
2)He willingly chose to play for BIH, he never had to be coaxed to play for BIH. Where Misimovic, Medunjanin and Hajrovic first choices were not BIH. BIH was always Vranjes first choice.( And comparing him to Misimovic would be wrong because Misimovic was a diaspora player not someone living in BIH at the time)
3)where would this really end as there are 1.3/1.4 millions Serbs in RS, who all think the same as Vranjes. They have Serb shirts, Serb flags, support Serb football clubs, do the the 3 fingered salute, are practicing Orthodox etc... like what criteria is acceptable and who decides what criteria allows you to play for BIH?
4)If a BIH player had a tattoo of the fleur de lis(liljani) or a player had the kockasti, would they still be accepted on the team?
5)And kicking Vranjes off the team does not change anything as I see it, because the next player from RS probably has the same intentions and feelings. And perpetuation(or perception) of only players chosen from the federation side will only add to the RS side saying we are not welcome or in the squad or further as part of the country as a whole.
So I say why not embrace Vranjes(his warts and all) at the same time sticking it to the RS side, by continuing to have one of their "own" on the squad.
Your arguments are all about respecting history and why the border was formed and I get that, but at some point if you want to blur that border, and actually get to work on that divide- someone has to make decision after decision to make a bridge over that divide. I certainly don't envy that person(s), but I don't see how kicking him off the team helps to close that schism.
