Annoying that these articles always stay generic and don't describe what was actually said

They said "PUTO" (which is a common term for male prostitute...by implication gay man) whenever the opposing goalie kicked a dead ball.

seems a bit over the top reaction by FIFA

also calling it "anti gay" seems a bit much... the word basically means a manwhore, no?

Yeah.....Way over the top....and what is to stop opposing fans to chant it to disqualify Mexico?

The word ibne is thrown around very loosely in Turkish, and in particular at football matches. Also a homophobic slur.

Only a matter of time until a fine.

The next time Mexico plays the US, watch some woke (that is not a banned word here (yet?) losers infiltrate the crowd to cause trouble and get Mexico more bans...

Funny, I have seen all kinds of s.hit happen it games from all over the world...but its Mexico, Croatia, Serbs, Estonians etc that are the only ones to get burned.

PS We have played many games without fans due to the woke uefa nailing us.....so playing in the covid times without fans is just like old times. lol

Quite a lot of that. And quite a lot of these...just moronic hit pieces with buzzwords.

This one's on Charles Barkley. You have to love the "journalist's" gotcha too. Chuck said that he and others can't have fun on the show without "jackasses trying to get you canceled". Her big fact check is that no one ever actually canceled Barkley. If she's an English Major, she needs a refund.

She goes for the jugular near the end...hilariously proving his point without realising it. But I'll give her some credit - her retelling of the joke makes it even funnier:

Barkley has used the "joke" about larger women specifically from San Antonio for years now. He's called the city a "gold mine for Weight Watchers" and when he attempted an apology, he instead said he understood why they were heavier because he tried churros and decided they were delicious.

The hosts mentioned that San Antonio is rated one of the "fattest cities" in the U.S. and Texas one of the fattest states. Alabama, where Barkley is from, is also near the top. He also noted he is overweight.

Notably, though, his comments have never been about the people in San Antonio, but specifically he has targeted women. In the decades of his comments, he's never been "canceled."

You could argue this was a less serious offence than throwing bottles at the American players (some of them Players of Color!)

He can dish it out but can take it too. Love this exchange.

Chuck: "you don't know the difference between cat scan and cat food"
Shaq: "you fat ass always talkin' bout food"

Lol, YES! Sticks and stones, baby. Like water off a Chuck's back. On the other hand, Shaq doesn't seem to handle it so well, lol.

There are Youtube compilations of Barkley roasting Shaq and of Shaq being a baby. This particular slam is probably my favourite...Shaq interrupted mid-profound speech:

I think it's wonderful that UEFA has the moral authority to decide what is and what isn't a good cause.

@Boyo Sometimes it's even better when they both laugh at someone else. Chuck's joke here about Lonzo Ball had Shaq in literal tears.

I wonder how that board meeting went.
  • "Kneeling during the anthem made us lose over a million viewers in one year, how can we get them back?"
  • "Let's bi gay!" 🌈
