Biting Back At Corporate Football

TAP blog has posted: Suarez bite-scam was staged:

The accompanying photo is not from this week's World Cup game which has generated the latest fuss, but this global talking point has become huge news.

I love my football. I follow Arsenal: Arsene Wenger at the beach:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjJIE5-W514#t=37

I do not go to the games. The last Arsenal match I attended must have been at least 15-20 years ago. I sat in North London traffic for longer time than the game lasted. The supporters often seem mindless; the food and beverages appalling; the view limited. I do not have Sky TV. I watch highlights on BBC TV Match Of The Day if Arsenal win. I tend to listen to radio commentaries. I do visit with friends who do have Sky TV for some of the bigger games. I drink wine and we chat in comfort. No police, no fluorescent jacket wearing officals and replays so you can admire action over again immediately. Why pay £50-£100 or more for the inconvenience of actually going to a live game?

My father, 83, says they used to pass children above heads down to the front at Arsenal's old ground Highbury. If that kind of friendly family atmosphere prevailed today, perhaps I would go more often.

The last live match I attended was a Beşiktaş home game in Istanbul 2006 because I was invited; the team wore my Atatürk's Eyes image on their shirts to commemorate a national day:

The ground was a walk away from my apartment studio. No traffic concerns for me. I had the luxury of corporate box seating with a TV and outside viewing if I wanted. I remember at the end leaving and witnessing a policeman bashing a disaffected fan who probably had paid to see a disappointing 0-0 draw.

The wages of players are out of control. The attention given to corporate sport in general is out of control. Arsene Wenger, who has over seen among the most successful club financial structures during his 18 year tenure, has battled frequent criticism in this age of too big too fail austerity, for not spending enough by his own official Arsenal supporters group. The mind boggles. Top players are paid on average £50-200K per week. The mind boggles even more.  

Suarez says of the alleged bite this last week "I lost my balance and fell on Chiellini":
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/28069689
Of course biting is unacceptable. But, so are career threatening tackles. As a 'Gooner' I recall the broken legs of Eduardo and Ramsey:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/a/arsenal/8541140.stm
What of the bribery to secure the Qatar 2022 World Cup Finals? What of the payments to fund Al Qaeda and Al Nusra, oh but that's boring global political war mongering and not relevant to domestic sport!?

I bet the biting, scratching, tugging, kicking and general intimidation going on is endless. I bet Suarez was given hell by the Italian defenders leading up to the incident. Suarez's goals against England were sublime. It is a game. Get over it. But no, every big He-man pundit on BBC Radio 5 Live was having a go; pontificating how awful Suarez was and how he should be banned for life. It was pathetic.

The political correctness and behaviour monitoring that goes on within 'corporate' sport is out of control, or being controlled to that end; to create a diversion from Obomba's drone murdering policy of foreign entanglement; divert attention away from biometric fingerprinting every child up and down the country; divert attention away from the realities of fracking; divert attention away from the cancer epidemic being supported and funded by mindless runs for charities that do sweet FA to solve the problem of human immune breakdown.

This morning the BBC and co are reporting an incident filmed on mobile phone or whatever Smart tool of one fan biting another fan's ear. Of course this will be blamed on Suarez: England fan has ear bitten off in Brazil:
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/jun/28/england-fan-ear-bitten-off-world-cup-brazil
"Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore tweeted that he had seen footage of the fan attack and claimed it would be "the biggest story in the UK, especially who did it".

Recently a huge fuss was made over Anelka, ex Arsenal player who left for mercenary duty with Madrid, because he implemented the quenelle gesture: A Call To Arms: The Quenelle?
http://nppessaysarticles.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/a-call-to-arms.html
I thought the dead named on my village hall memorial died in the name of preserving freedom of expression, not to perpetuate a fascist-communist state whereby everyone is encouraged to report on everyone else for the slightest perceived misdemeanor.

Grow up. Get some perspective. It seems unlikely Suarez was instructed stage such an incident, but then again, they can blow up 3 steel buildings live on global TV and most consider it ridiculous the suggestion that was staged, so goodness knows... whatever, in this case stop rising to the bait.

Switch off the commentary, stop buying McDonald's, Coca-Cola and Gary Lineker crisps and take back responsibility:

Jeremy Hunt (oh so tempting to add a C) has just delivered a speech about child abuse in the House of Commons and we know he and his pay masters will cover up the bigger truth and yet we too easily rise to the bait of lame stream news pushing an ear bite.

How to react? Write and call your MP and tell them your concerns about the bigger picture. For example, the North Shropshire Anti Fracking Association print and distribute good old fashioned leaflets in the style of Thetford born Thomas Paine:

Take back control, take responsibility and call Stan Collymore on Talksport to tell him shut up with the stupidity and how about addressing the solutions to the cancer epidemic sweeping the country?

I like you Stan 'The Man', your football commentary can be most entertaining and funny, but you are being a prat.
Hey Chris Akabusi stop promoting immune system harming 'sports' drinks; I do not recall the exact details, but I do remember Akabusi standing by the consumption of crap food on BBC Radio 5; I remember thinking to myself 'Chris, you're talking bollocks':

Hey all you presstitute sports presenters, wake up and speak some truth instead of inane drivel. Hey all you Wimbledon tennis playing super athletes supping on your corporate bottled water and Aspartame filled Sugar Barley Waters, how about some intelligent fluid awareness?!

Calling all professional footballers, sport persons and punters, try watching the Thomas Campbell Monroe Institute Lecture to grasp a different perspective:

I love to put some jumpers down and have a kick about, and trust me, I like to play to win, but this trite being offered in the name of sport is trite. Stop buying into it. I was disappointed to see Suarez banned and empathise with the supportive reaction he has received from the 3.5 million population of Uruguay.

Is it just me or does Luis Suarez remind you of Freddie Mercury? Another one bites the dust.

Arsenal!

A Call To Arms: The Quenelle?

The BBC Radio 4 news informed me Nicholas Anelka had been banned for 5 matches for enacting the quenelle:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/26326484

Did you know what the quenelle was? I didn't, till the mainstream media informed me:
West Brom sack Nicolas Anelka for gross misconduct:
http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/26587077
Nicolas Anelka 'quenelle' gesture had 'anti-Semitic' link - FA panel:

Nicolas Anelka: Fifa considers FA request for global 'quenelle' ban
http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/26626797

I am a non-member of any group or club, but have been a life long fan of Arsenal FC as my father and his father before him. I do not attend the live matches because it is expensive, crowded, uncomfortable, too much traffic and I prefer the TV and a bottle of wine in comfort. I last attended a live match at Beşiktaş in İstanbul because I was invited to join a corporate box with a TV within the room as well as a prime view of the real match; plus the players were donning shirts before the game featuring my image of Atatürk's Eyes to commemorate a Turkish national day. Despite being a mostly radio and sometimes TV football follower, anyone who knows me will tell I follow Arsenal relentlessly and dare I describe it as almost religiously. My mood can alter depending upon a win, draw or defeat. It is ridiculous, but true.

Nicholas Anelka is a mercenary as far as I am concerned having left Arsenal for Real Madrid.

However, this quenelle business is ridiculous, puerile and perhaps profoundly disturbing at a deeper level. Israel has taken over the minds of too many. Mention of Israel brings me to ask what is a Semite and what is an Ashkenazi Jew? Already, I sense the ADL stirring at the the mere mention of such questions. For those unaware, the ADL is the Anti-Defamation League: is an international Jewish non-governmental organisation based in the United States, describing itself as "the nation's premier civil rights/human relations agency"; it "fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all," doing so through "information, education, legislation, and advocacy."
http://www.adl.org/
Yeah, right. From my observation, it seems to be a thought crime agency.

My Great Grandma was an East London money lender and my Dad's family have a nose that could be as cliched 'Semitic'. Indeed, may be I have a tiny bit of Jewish DNA, what ever Jewish is. I just don't care. Indeed, what is British? I've long assumed I'm a mongrel mix-mash of various genetical inheritance and who knows, perhaps even extra-terrestrial as well as terrestrial. Please, prove to me otherwise. In recent years I've come to realise I may be a frequency human being. A victim because of anothers thoughts and actions I am not.

The decision to ban Anelka for 5 matches for putting his hand on his arm is so ridiculous it is tempting to call out to one and all, go into your local shops, into the street, where ever, and enact the 'quenelle, just because you can and to convey the message and right to freedom of thought and action.

I wonder how the likes of Gerald Kaufman, Norman Finklestein, Alan Hart. David Halfin and Roger Waters react to this quenelle story.

Trends Forecaster Gerlad Celente says to stop calling him anti-Semitic. He says such characters as Benjamin Netanyahu are Ashkenazi Jews, they are not Semites. Arabs and Palestinians are Semites. Wikipedia supports this claim:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Israeli_Ashkenazi_Jews:
Chaim Weizmann, first President of Israel (1949–52)
Yitzhak Ben-Zvi – first elected/second president President of Israel (1952–63)
David Ben-Gurion – first Prime Minister of Israel (1948–54, 1955–63)
Moshe Sharett – prime minister (1954–55)
Levi Eshkol – prime minister (1963–69)
Golda Meir – prime minister (1969–74)

Menachem Begin – prime minister (1977–83); Nobel Peace Prize (1978)
Yitzhak Shamir – prime minister (1983–84, 1986–92)
Shimon Peres – President of Israel (2007–); prime minister (1984–86, 1995–96); Nobel Peace Prize (1994)
Benjamin Netanyahu – prime minister (1996–99), (2009–); was minister of finance; Likud party chairman
Ehud Barak – prime minister (1999–01)
Ariel Sharon – prime minister (2001–06)
Ehud Olmert – prime minister (2006–09); former mayor of Jerusalem
Rehavam Zeevi – founder of the Moledet party (assassinated October 2001)
Yossi Beilin – leader of the Meretz-Yachad party and peace negotiator
Yosef Lapid – former leader of the Shinui party
Teddy Kollek – former mayor of Jerusalem

Grow up people. Anelka is an over paid mercenary who chases a bag of air along with 21 other over paid men and I love football, despite being aware of the mass mind programming aspects of TV sport. Media outlets such as the presstitute BBC 5 Live sports team who so eagerly jump upon the politically correct band wagon, create far more division than Anelka ever would have if none of them had made a mountain out of a molehill.

Hey BBC, why don't you examine chemtrails? How about reformation of the criminal LIBOR fractional lending banking scam? How about a fresh enquiry into the fairy tale story that is 9/11? Hey Margaret Oppenheimer Hodge, so much praised for her parliamentary enquiry chairwoman ship, how about investigating the child abuse apparently rampant among established ruling elite? Nah, let's attack a bloke for placing his hand upon his arm. Mind boggling.

Why do we so easily fall victim to others words or actions. I grew up being told we fought a second world war in order to secure freedom of thought and expression which was threatened by a Nazi centralised control fascist system. I thought tolerating the unpleasant views of others might be a sign of a society where there exists freedom of thought and expression. The you start to understand what fascism really is:

It is not just footballers or a Semitic issue. Gestures apparently upset people far and wide. Two women were detained over 'ugly' an alleged gesture to Turkish PM Tayyip Erdogan:

Let us remember Erdogan was once imprisoned for reciting a poem. You'd think he might be a bastion for freedom of thought and expression. But no:

So, back to football, the world cup and TV sport. As Brazil prepare to host the World Cup 2014, there is butchery on the streets:
http://revolution-news.com/brazil-unleashes-new-terror-favelas-aims-silence-anti-capitalist-social-movements/#prettyPhoto
There is next to nothing on my BBC about this murder and killing hell, yet Anelka's quenelle arm gesture made anti-Semitic news all over the place:
Football has further unpleasant news items that still did not command the same level of high profile media outrage as Anelka's arm gesture:
Pele's son jailed for 33 years:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-27652832
Qatar World Cup: '£3m payments to officials' corruption claim:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/27652181
Perhaps the corruption story has been pushed a bit more, but it is Qatar, the source of Al Jazeera and financial links to the US-UK-NATO-EU and 'rebel' incursions into Syria.

TV sport has become quite a phenomenon. The Olympics were once competiton for individuals of simply the best trying to be the best. Today it is a national identity flag waving exercise of national identity teams propping up corporate interests, promoting the most unhealthy food and drink and perhaps contributing to the mass global numbing of minds in one foul swoop. Whatever you do, don't put a hand on the opposite arm.

Arsenal!
