Professional Footballers Association Chair Carlisle Criticizes Players For Racism Stance
Published September 10, 2013
FOLLOW UP QUESTION: In London, Jamie Jackson reported Kick It Out Chair George Ouseley has questioned why Rio and Anton Ferdinand, Lescott and other prominent black footballers "have not followed last year's refusal to wear anti-racism T-shirts with further protest." While Ouseley "was clear that he respected the players' decision" not to do so in light of Carlisle branding them "s***houses," Ouseley did say their action was not a "big deal" as it had not been followed up. He said, "When Clarke Carlisle says players talk the talk but they don't walk the walk, he's absolutely right because it's all right to say not enough is being done but, as he rightly says, when we have all these gigs challenging racism, where is the support? It's always the same footballers who have experienced racism who turn out and the others, however big or small they are in terms of their popularity or fame, are nowhere to be seen" (GUARDIAN, 9/9).
