NOTE TO MODS: I've created a few threads. Please PM me if I am becoming a pest. Could not find a thread to this and didn't want to derail this thread although I feel in a way all forms of descrimination are related in some way or another.> https://arsenal-mania.com/forum/thr...ty-ethnic-managers-in-british-football.30565/ AM, I'm curious on your thoughts. This is a sensitive topic. I would appreciate maturity, sensitivity towards fellow posters and most of all empathy. I pasted the above posts by @Tosker & @dashsnow17 from another discussion. It is strange that football seems so behind the times in certain aspects. I beleive the acceptance of homosexuals is one of them although arguably this is a problem in all sports. I also stumbled across this article earlier and wondered if Bellamy is right in his thoughts here http://www.skysports.com/football/n...ready-for-first-gay-player-says-craig-bellamy Is the global football community ready for gay footballers to be open? Are there any specific factors blocking this kind of accepting culture in the sport? Perhaps it is more region based. Certain countries seem to be more open and liberal. Some info I found on this. Although there isn't much. Almost as if the media are scared to touch on the subject. I'd love some feedback from proud gay posters although I wouldn't dare call anybody out or expect them to post. Again, I ask for maturity and sensitivy people. http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/least-20-footballers-premier-league-11409395 - |I know, the Mirror "erg!" http://edition.cnn.com/2017/08/24/football/ryan-atkin-football-referee-homophobia/index.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football...liam-davis-have-not-had-one-problem-football/ I [personally feel that those who would be willing to accept this in football should state so and create the enviroment for which these players can feel at home and at ease about being honest and open. Whatever your thoughts on it, the game seems to be ready for serious evolution. Testing VAR, hugely inflated markets, countries which own teams. What a time to be alive.
