Russian Football.

Black players may 'boycott' Russia 2018 - Al Jazeera English






Should these players boycott Russia 2018, or is there an opinion that Politics should be kept out of Sport?

Re: Russian Football.

I think it is the only way FIFA & UEFA will do something positive about racism in football .
When a footballer can be fined more for showing the waistband of his under crackers which showed a trade logo, than clubs who do nothing to stop/deter racists, someone/ something has to spur the authorities into action.
The main trouble is, those that run these associations are as much use as chocolate fire guards , when they deal with national teams, clubs, players, spectators who persist in being racist.
Whether they do act upon the threat of action against against the tournament in Russia, is anyone's guess with the present incumbents at the head of FIFA .

Re: Russian Football.

If politics were kept out of sport then nations wouldn't spend $100millions putting on World Cups and Olympic Games. The Russian World Cup is just about feeding Putin's ego and his prestige in Russia. If we have teams called "England", "Germany", "Russia", "USA" and so on, how can it be non-political?

Re: Russian Football.

Its a showcase for any player regardless of colour or creed & its a problem in many countries across Europe. Will they boycott it? Well that would be a strong show out but for many its a once in a lifetime achievement/event.

Re: Russian Football.

Their personal sponsors would not allow them to boycott it. Personally I think we should all boycott it until Ukraine's integrity is restored.

You're confirming what I am saying.
Just what did EUFA do about it ?.
In short they did nothing , in their defence Chelsea have said that they will ban the offenders for life.
However if the powers that be want to stamp out racism in football they have to hit clubs, national teams, and governing bodies of areas where racism is rife, and absolutely nothing is being done to rectify it.
As for personal sponsors forcing players to go, that wouldn't be very good promotion of their wares would it.

Surely all major sporting events, Olympics, World Cup etc have political and racist components. The 1936 Berlin Olympics were a good example of both.

By holding the 2018 event in Sochi we are not only adding to Putin’s popularity but de facto endorsing the legality of his imperialism.

I think that all players/nations should boycott these games – probably a lot cheaper in cash and lives than putting boots on the ground elsewhere AND also sending a direct message to the people that really count – the Russian people themselves.

The same can be said for Qatar and the Ukrainian oligarchs filling their pockets
