I'm sure if his son's team had taken the knee before the game then the racists would have stopped being racists and non of this would have happened...

Joking aside (and I know it is a bad joke but I wanted to make a point about how futile and ridiculous the taking the knee gesture really is about changing minds), the concern here is this took place from Manchester Grammar School boys/staff/parents or certainly someone connected to the school it would seem.

You would think (well I would) that there would be a bit of brains in that lot somewhere and not ignorance and intolerance as there clearly was.

I've been watching a documentary about 'A Killing in Tiger Bay' (which I highly recommend) about racism.

Part of the true story is that five black men were deliberately taken from Cardiff (where the murder occurred) to Swansea for trial - clearly it seems because at the time hardly any black people lived there at then and it seemed certain that they'd be found guilty on the colour of their skin as much as anything else.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000zhg7/a-killing-in-tiger-bay-series-1-1-the-murder

Maybe the good people of Manchester Grammar are predominantly white and elite and judge others on their class and skin colour?

I don't know, I would have thought these days there would not be such barriers to attend any school let alone Manchester Grammar?

For any change to happen it requires a change in behaviour and it takes far more to achieve that than some footballers kneeling before a match, it takes years of education and integration and recognition that racism isn't just one way - whites to blacks.

Children are not born racist, they learn to become one from those around them.

I never really got to grips with stilts. Being prone to mishaps, even as a child, they were never really a good idea. Still have a hankering to make some though. Ah, the simpler pleasures of a simpler time.

You stick to the Grauniad, Boncey. You don't want to get confused, do you?

Here's a nice little piece I came across t'other day. Its mostly garbage, of course, but it is Guardian garbage.

Speaking of garbage, I had, and don't press me on this, reason to google 'fish wearing a monocle', and was surprised to find more examples than I expected.
Some were also sporting a top hat, which surprised me, given the aquatic nature of their natural environment, but I'm no expert on the sartorial merits of our scaly brethren.
Hipster fish are big in The Grauniad.

Hipster fish and codswallop, Boncey? How sofishticated, but is it better value than the Angling Times?

Norpig's avatar has taken a very odd turn. I blame myself. And Bob.

And the Angling Times is very poor value. The 'Readers Wives' section is laughable.

I'll bring this topic up at the Bobsworth's next spending review, Boncey. Neither Lady Bobsworth nor I take the Angling Times but Lady B does like a good laugh.

Meanwhile can you tell me which bits of Sluffy's 'jargon' or my own would benefit from further explanation.

I'm assuming that, as an ST member and  Guardian reader, you are fully conversant with codswallop, hogwash, claptrap and magic money trees.

Well, I got home tonight to find the freezer was kaput, and all the food had to be chucked out. Ordered a new one from Curry's, but it won't arrive until Wednesday.
It was paid for with the help of a magic money tree, a species of tree, I might add, that looks remarkably like my wallet.
This tree seems to have a mind of its own, in that I seem to have no control over its actions. Very odd.
As for jargon, I suggest you speak in Oddle Poddle. Waddle oo tik oo dop?

C'est la vie, Boncey. Never mind, eh! Think about the poor Guardian reporter. He was so dim-witted and confused, he tried to order a curry from Freezers. Flob a lob!

Sadly, The Grauniad isn't what it was. I'm still waiting for a new Neville Cardus. Might be a long wait.

You might well think that, Boncey, but I ask myself whether the Grauniad would publish this kind of wet-behind-the-ears twaddle if it had a readership that wasn't so susceptible to wet-behind-the ears twaddle.

But it wasn't really just the Grauniad, was it?

There is a Wanderer in that photo, Boncey. Did you not spot him?

I think this was the England team that played against Scotland whose side included Denis Law and Ian St John.

Yes indeed. I should have named the team, but couldn't be bothered. Ray Parry for anyone interested.

I'm an on and off reader. Great grab and go paper if you don't have a lot of time, but newspapers on the whole are dying a death of a thousand cuts. By the time they hit the news stands they're pretty much out of date.
I sticks to mags these days. Private Eye and When Saturday Comes being my two regulars.

No one cares about anything if it's in black and white, apart from old codgers that is. Football began with the Premier League apparently.
I no longer try to enlighten the younger family members. Last week one of them asked me to value my memorabilia, so they'd have a rough idea of how much they might get for it when I'm gone.
He's supported the Whites for ten years , but has never heard of Wyn Davies or John Byrom. The past is another country, and it's deemed a no fly zone.
I sometimes wonder why I bother myself. Mind you, at least I solved one of my picture puzzles after emailing Marc Iles a couple of years ago.

Don't worry Bob. 'Codger' is male. She doesn't have to feel insulted. Not sure about you though.
I myself am a proud codger. A codger stuck indoors waiting for the new freezer to arrive. Between 7am and 7pm they say.
It might be a long day.
