John Terry: Racist slur?


Recommended Posts

So the FA is above the law? What a fucking joke. Found not guilty by the law, a corrupt organisation that can make up it's own rules as they go along find him guilty. Just doing this to save their own back.

They have dragged JT's name through the mud some more. I'm glad he's retired from England.

Actually I agree with Fergie.... I hope JT doesn't appeal cuz he will lose.

The difference here is that JT was cleared by the Law so his ban (even for 1 game) is unjust.

However the country and the league have made too big a deal out of this racism issue so the game should just move on, like Fergie said.

I don't think he should appeal, can't see that changing anything apart from a longer ban. Everyone knows this is just the FA covering their backs, he was found not guilty by the law, end of. Just want this farce to be over.

Maybe Didier etc didn't sign statements because they didn't hear anything. Can't be a witness to something you were not aware of. I strongly beleive JT was repeating what that mong accused him of.Why has Ledley King not been heavily fined for calling a bouncer a pa*i and hitting him? One rule for some and another for others.

From The Guardian: What Terry's sympathisers have never explained is why, inside football, it was known well before the trial began that Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, Mikel John Obi and Chelsea's Kick It Out ambassador, Florent Malouda, were not among those from Stamford Bridge who had signed statements supporting their colleague.

The Guardian, publishing complete and utter bollocks since 1821. May have supported the Confederates during the American Civil War, sacked Malcolm Muggeridge for exposing Soviet atrocities in the 1930s.

Whilst we have no idea what the commission are going to say in their written report my guess is they will rule quite simply that Terry, through his own admission made the comments. In truth it would be hard to argue otherwise. I would expect however they will say something along the lines that he said and that’s all they were there to judge whereas in the Suarez case there was much more (the number of times he uttered words of a racial nature and the fact that he admitted to pinching Evra) Hence the difference in the number of games banned.

However if this is the case Terry has immediate grounds for appeal in that Evra told the ref that Suarez had called him a n***o or whatever the translation was and he wasn’t charged. You have to take all such matters in context.

There are two other routes that are possible both, I think, without the need for appeal although it would strengthen any case if he had been through the appeal process.

The first will to be asking for a judicial review. I believe there are three reasons such a review could be granted. 1) The FA failed to adhere to their own rules in that they didn’t rely on both the result or the evidence of the court case and 2) The panel had bias as whilst there clearly was independence at least one of the panels was a FA councillor and 3) Lack of consistency. They didn’t charge Evra!

The second is to go to The Court for Arbitration in Sport. They have the final word in sports disputes. If you remember they were the ones that ruled that UEFAs transfer ban imposed on us following the singing of Gael Kakuta was invalid.

The FA will argue in their rules that they have the final word in all matters but this shouldn’t present any real challenge.

Having said all that I wonder what Chelsea’s position will be if at the end of the day the decision goes un challenged or indeed is up held.

Quite simply JT may be sacrificed if the club are to avoid firstly some of their decisions re previous players being sacked (the club have always argued zero tolerance) being challenged, secondly the bans of supporters who have already or will in the future for making racist comments being challenged in the courts and thirdly to satisfy the wider football community to include worldwide sponsors and dare I say the press.

JT is contracted at Chelsea till 2014. Some would argue his playing influence is declining. Some would argue his presence as captain or as a leader will or has already been damaged by this issue. We will have to face up to life at some point without Terry and I fear that the club may well feel that that time has come.

No doubt many will disagree with my I am suggesting but I fear it is a real possibility

I believe he is saying we might not renew his contract then ,,,That is a reasonable premise given his age ,,injury problems, salary and possible

alternatives. I don't believe there is any disrespect in suggesting that MIGHT happen

No far from it.

I am asking will the club sack him now or ride the storm and be prepared, if forced, to re visit some of the sackings/ bans of the past.

JT is a fabulous footballer. A great Chelsea man and had he been 25 the club would be in a far more difficult position but he isnt he is nearly 32 and whilst still a great player how many more years does he have left?

What do u mean?

The club advocated in the Jacob Mellis, Adrain Mutu and Bosnich dismissals that the club operate a zero tolerance. Both at appeal and in the Mutu case they argued this at CAS.

The club have argued the same in incidents where supporters are found to have made chants of a racial nature. These supporters receive lifetime bans again through thr club operating a policy of zero tolerance.

The club face a dilemma, (please don’t think I am saying they should sack JT) I fear the club, through the media but also through the need to be able to maintain its zero tolerance stance, may well feel the need to take some sort of action against JT. The problem is he is our best defender, our captain etc. etc. But as we all know Roman is quite ruthless and may well feel the clubs image/ standing will be harmed if JT remains. The suits will be looking at the matter from a business perspective as well as the football perspective. The clubs image and marketing potential will be a major consideration

Please don’t think I am saying it has to happen but we as supporters need to face up to the fact it may well happen. For me if the club can somehow get to the Jan window I would not be at a surprised to see him go somewhere in Europe on loan. Will be a real shame but I don’t expect any let up from the press or indeed pressure groups if the club don’t take some sort of action.
