FFS. The article is behind a paywall so I can't read the details, but my immediate thought was: "Stop them how? And why? Merely booing is expressing an opinion, not targeting a player or player and subjecting them to abuse, etc. So, if fans - whose money largely funds this sport - express an opinion the FA or clubs don't like, it's appropriate to 'stop' them?" I'm so sick of this crap. It's a cringingly subservient gesture that helps nobody and does nothing to further racial equality. Any player in Euro 2021 who stands up (literally) against taking the knee is going to get enthusiastic applause from me and I suspect, quite a lot of other people too. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2021/05/21/england-players-set-take-knee-2021-european-championship/
