Ken Bates, the Chelsea chairman when a number of youth-team footballers claim they were racially abused by their own coaches, has been accused of making “truly shameful” comments after criticising the alleged victims for wanting to keep their identities secret and questioning why they did not report it when they were children. Nike Men's Kobe Bryant White Authentic Jersey - Team USA #10 2016 Olympics Basketball Bates suggested the reason for “all these ancient coming-outs so many years later” was because “the sniff of money is in the air” and said those in question should have found other clubs if the racism they allegedly encountered at Stamford Bridge, from the age of 11 onwards, was so upsetting. Premier Reebok Men's Neal Broten White Away Jersey - NHL #7 Dallas Stars Speaking publicly for the first time about the escalating scandal at his former club, Bates said Chelsea used to have some of the more racist fans in England, with the National Front using Stamford Bridge as their “unofficial headquarters”, and said he had taken the first measures to change the culture on the terraces. He did not offer any indication as to whether he believed the allegations surrounding Gwyn Williams and Graham Rix, two of his former employees. “Obviously I’m keeping an open mind about it,” he said. Instead, Bates directed his criticisms towards the players with “their faces shielded, sitting with their backs to the camera”, and said that “what bothers me a bit” was the people in question choosing to remain anonymous. “I thought: ‘How are we going to make any progress? These people have to reveal their identities … and, without being unkind, what did they do about it at the time? If I’d been racially abused I would have told my dad and expected him to support me. Or I could have left the club and joined another one. It’s all very well to say, ‘Oh well, I didn’t want to say anything or do anything because it might have harmed my career’, but if you’ve got the ability there were plenty of other clubs snapping up young black kids. “The sniff of money is in the air and I think in view of all the terrible miscarriages of justice over allegations of varied abuse – sexual, racial, etcetera – it’s time people should take a tough line. OK, name the people. Name the times. What was actually said? http://www.authentichurricanestore.com/eddie-lack-jersey_c-443.html What was your response? This is trial by smear and it’s not good enough. The Guardian revealed in January that three former youth-team footballers from the 1990s had launched legal claims against Chelsea after allegations of explicit racism by their coaches, including one instance when Rix was said to have thrown a cup of hot coffee in the face of a young Womens Mike Reilly Jersey black player. Rix, who is also accused of other physical attacks, denies all the allegations. One Authentic Alex Killorn Jersey player’s evidence to the Football Association’s safeguarding department described it as a “feral environment” where black players in the youth team were treated “like a race of fucking dogs”. Explaining why he felt unable to report Williams at the http://www.officiallightningproshop.com/Erik_Condra_Jersey time, he said: “I knew it was unacceptable but I was a minor. When you’re in that position, where Womens Jonathan Bullard Jersey this guy is a powerful guy at the club … I didn’t know how to handle it. I thought it would stop. I just didn’t know how to handle it and it was constant … the racial slurs of ‘coon’, ‘wog’, ‘monkey’ … ‘smoking wacky‑backy’, which is marijuana, http://www.broncosofficialfootball.com/Shaquil_Barrett_Jersey_Broncos or ‘black bastard’, ‘fucking black bastard’, ‘mango‑muncher’, ‘nigger’. “Gwyn Williams had been at the club since 1979. He was powerful. He was Ken Bates’s mate. The guy [Williams] is a walking piece of dirt but he had power. It was said he had the biggest black book in London – he knew everyone. That guy was the governor. No matter what role he had, that man had power.” Since then, a number of other complainants have begun their own legal actions about the culture of “continued racist bullying and abuse” that allegedly existed when Williams was involved with the youth team. Two white players, Grant Lunn and Gary Baker, from Chelsea’s youth set‑up in the early 1980s have come forward to back their former team-mates and the club have brought in Barnardo’s to oversee an independent inquiry. Williams and Rix, who share the same solicitor, released a statement in January to deny all the allegations. They have declined a number of requests to speak about the matter. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys china wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys
