CHAV!

I won't go into this but as having been a big supporter of the 3 Lions, it'd be a kick in the gut if John Terry did what he is accused of and though I don't think he's an example of moral virtue, I find it hard to think he'd stoop so low as to say something racist on the pitch.

I open up the Daily Mail, oh know, doesn't look good....http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/fo

pens-Terry-as.html
BUT then again, Ashley Cole, CFC team mate is saying he heard nothing per the Sun story: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepag

racist-comments.html


Ironically, he took the armband back from Ferdinand's older brother Rio and the racist allegations will prove highly embarrassing if both players are sharing an England dressing room next month.

Kind of ironic.

Yeah, the Chelsea crowd, Joey Barton, maybe Rooney too have often been called "Chavs" over in England and this would be another episode. A tawdry episode....as I said previously, with team mates such as Drogba, Essien, Cole, Mikel, Malouda, I find it hard to think JT would be using some racist epithet on the pitch. The word doesn't seem to be the big bad one but a poor choice of language, like if I were to say "you white ------" and I use that as an example since I am Anglo meself!

It seems from what I can tell, Terry did not use the really really "bad" word but some other usage of the language. Read the articles.
