Virtue signalling.

I get what you're saying.
If someone came out in my department at work I am certain everyone would say the right things, but I cringe at the idea of what they would say when said person wasn't around.
Fair enough.

You cant say what he said but I think its a tad harsh banning a player for a statement he made years ago.......If he did it last week - absolutely.

What stops people scrapping through years of social media for every player?

If someone is to be punished it needs to be done when the infringement occurs. Its like walking into the house and wrapping the dog on the nose for peeing on the house when they where a puppy, all that accomplishes is build resentment.
I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

I had a look at history - he played for Luton and then moved to Brentford in 2012 - how/why did the football league not punish him then?
