Does anyone know who this is about? None of the other websites will name names. Paper View: England 'race crisis' By Andy Hooper Last Updated: 1:47am GMT 16/11/2006 "It is understood the football fraternity is aware and shocked at the alleged incident... all the players involved are believed to be keen to see the matter kept under wraps." McClaren: off-field concerns The Daily Express, following a story yesterday from The Voice newspaper, reports that Steve McClaren is facing an off-the-field crisis after one of his players was accused of making a "deeply disparaging racial remark" toward a fellow England player. For legal reasons the players concerned cannot be named but it is understood the incident is alleged to have taken place during a top-flight match in London. And, as the Express says, "such is the seriousness of the accusation that it threatens to eclipse all the other issues McClaren has had to endure in such a short space of time as England boss".

From Animal House, I learnt that a fraternity is when a load of people who are entertaining but not very clever, band together for sex & alcohol related fun.

One of them must have demonstrated the way white guys drive, as opposed to the way black guys drive? Whatever it is it's obviously very serious.

Rio told Gary Neville his dancing sucks. Either that or there was a game where the black players would play the white playes, and Rooney said only he will talk to the lback players on the white teams behalf because "he talks jive". Thus taken offence of by the black players.

lol football is so fucking pc these days. I bet it was a throw-away comment and the player is terrified of the press getting hold of it and distorting it. In England these days we're so eager to be outraged by something. I'm not trying to downplay any wrongdoing, just suspicious that it's probably as innocuous as a swan beak on a lilly pad. Might be wrong but I don't know yet. I'll take it all back if it is in fact a horrible and offensive remark.
