Brentford Town have announced their players will no longer be taking the knee, so good on them. I have just emailed THFC and asked when they will be doing the same, so will you please consider sending a similar message. Thanks

Spot on, donít see the rugby players doing it. Itís meaningless as meaningless as players holding kids hands as they walk out onto the pitch. The kids would be excited but even more excited if more of the players paid them some attemtion

Racism is a state of mind which sometimes results in racist actions. They can take the knee however much they want but it would be very unlikely to have an effect and even be a cause of racist actions.

Iím not hugely for or against

However when they take a knee does it stop and make me think about why they are doing it? to be honest yes I do and therefore it achieves itís purpose of raising awareness!

By them taking a knee it doesnít just raise the issue of Black Lives Matter but wider issues of abuse to.

Footballers in particular receive huge amounts of abuse on social media - Harry Kane has just received a load.

If by taking a knee they raise awareness then fine by me

Rugby seems not to have the same level of abuse that footballers receive.

Taking the Knee can only offend people for one reason.

The raised fist salute has historically been used as a gesture of solidarity with oppressed peoples and defiance at their opressors, and became a symbol of the Black Power movement that began during the 1960s in the US.

Are we debating again OGY?

I’m what some of you might call a snowflake, or woke, but even I think that taking the knee has made its point and has run its course. There comes a point in any act of protest that the longer it goes on the effect it originally desired diminishes. That’s not to disrespect why it was done in the first place. The education of racial equality will go on, but it needs to move on from sportsmen (or women) bending down.

Oh, and I will add that racism doesn’t just go one way. It happens across many ‘divides’.

The issue is why it 'offends' people , not the issue that its out of date and has little effect anymore. Those are VALID reasons to stop Taking the Knee... but not one on here can explain why it offends.

Would love to see Old Spurs email to Levy.
