People need to lighten up, we are all sterilizing humans into humanoid bots following the strict politically correct algorithm.

You reckon if an Indian player on debut was found to make offensive remarks directed at Muslims, or Tamils, for example, we should all just forget it?

What’s wrong with the tweets? It’s not racist, that’s like saying Kohli or Shastri are racist bc they use fake American accent in their English.

Is that how you impress people in your home town Abottabad by pretending to be from UK/Canada? Not counting Dubai as they have no western accent

lol Shastri or Kohli or any Indian player for that matter never sounded American to me. They sound just like anyone from India with good or decent English. I doubt they sound like Americans to anyone else here either. I wonder where that thought came from.

Our boys are too simple to do this but I wish we had a bastard character in the team to put this material to use on the field.

 

Imagine this. Buttler readies himself to take the guard and the close-in fielders chime in thickest of desi accent

 

''Buttler boy, what do you think of Shilpa Shetty's accent?''

 

''Sir, Sir, buttler sir, autograph pleeze''

 

''Buttler sir, why waste time here, twitter waiting for you''

 

etc etc. The opportunities are endless.

That guy had to be a test specialist too..  IPL guys won't do that 100% even if it is Ishant Sharma lol..

Sir Butler would you be so kind to serve our dinner/lunch before it gets too cold :bow:

The key is not to insult him for his name or anything personal. Absolutely not.

 

Instead, use his casual racism against him. Make him super uncomfortable and he cannot even squeal and complain.

No disagreement. Mocking publicly is absolute no-no. Treat it with seriousness and sensitivity.

 

Exactly why I mentioned lack of bastard characters who relentlessly do it on the field of play without getting obvious. If it does lead to distracting Buttler enough to get him cheaply a few times in the test series, go for it.

 

The depressing reality is that a vast chunk of Indians don't see much wrong in it, so it neither gets the press nor does our team stand to milk it for what it's worth on the pitch.

The reception of Michael Carberry's comments on this episode among ENG fans and pundits is an EYE OPENER.

 

The fans are by and large livid at Carberry for having an opinion that runs counter to the wishes of white majority. But the pudits and journos have simply looked the other way, not even acknowledging Carberry has made a point, much less discussing it sincerely and honestly.

Very Interesting they have brought Bess Back suddenly..  Actually now ECB is in a catch 22 situation.  They can't play a alleged racist guy Overton over Robinson but they need someone who can bowl & bat & they have brought back Bess lol..  This is some 3d chess though:hatsoff:

I am seeing a lot of Indians (from India) on cricket forums popping up in support of Ollie Robinson. Is this the Modi effect?
