Sick and tired of the racism that keeps coming out in this forum.
Sometimes its subtle and hard to notice because of anonymity. But if you read enough, and wait patiently, the rock-spiders come crawling out.
It could just be the demographics of the posters, but it seems to be most prevalent when discussing elite/international/Boomers players.
When Bogut, Baynes, Creek, or even Kay is discussed, the sentiments are mostly positive. But Talk about Simmons, Bolden, Maker, Jawai, etc, and the balance substantially shifts towards the negative.
Suggest a Naturalised Cotton might one day play for Australia, and watch the forum melt down.
Plus its not just criticisms of their play. Look at all the things they get accused of; being spoiled, lazy, prima donas, whingers, back-stabbers. If only you could accuse them of dole-bludging and roaming the streets in gangs, you'd have the perfect racist recipe.
Lemanis gets the sack and immediately blame is place on Bolden and Simmons. Why not Motum, or Creek, or Broekhoff.
Obviously the racists will defend themselves, by pointing out that they aren't racist, they just don't like lazy spoiled whinging prim donas, who all just happen to be black.
