Who has said "Shame in you Dele you foul racist bigot BAN HIM BAN HIM BAN HIM!"?
I'm paraphrasing but have you not been following this story in the media? I obviously don't know them personally but when I heard them I thought he'd full on abused people until I found out the truth.

The big problem is that too many people these days (especially the kids of today) are so desperate to be popular and funny that they will do anything to get a laugh. It drives me mad to see it happening and what the human race is becoming.

Simon Jordan has argued Dele Alli should NOT be fined for his social media post about the coronavirus outbreak – saying if you punished footballers for being stupid you would have to sanction half of the Premier League!

I'm sorry, but shock or bad humour has always been a thing - I remember the day after the Challenger Shuttle disaster hearing a plethora of jokes about women drivers and an astronauts favourite drink being 7-UP.

Can't see how this is racist. Why does everything have to be racist. He mentioned corona virus and pointed out a Chinese guy. Corana virus came from China so how is that racist. Just stupid
This is racist. I mean if everything is racist this must be

Then fucking fine them!

My wife (Japanese) was subjected to some coronavirus racism this evening and whether you like it or not Dele has helped to propagate it.

Whether that was his intention or not and it almost certainly wasn’t, is irrelevant

Very sorry to hear the experience your wife had to endure. No room for it! I agree ‘fine them!’

How do the FA have the power to do this?

They now seem to have the right to judge a players off the field actions at ban them accordingly, to my mind this is more sinister than anything Dele has done.

What other things do they have the power to ban players for Away from the pitch? Seen quite a few players parking is disabled spaces for instance, one game ban? Where will it end.
It's not just the FA that has that power. The vast majority of people in this country can be disciplined and indeed fired for actions outside work that bring their employer or profession into disrepute, cause reasonable offence etc. Footballers get off lightly in comparison - if I did this and got caught I'd be facing a LOT worse.

Fining a multimillionaire is totally pointless. If it was any other team's player we'd be calling for a ban, and it's the only meaningful sanction.

That maybe true, how does that affect tourism?

Besides, every place has their crutch, which is used to then beat up that country with. Case in point, the us and their warmongering. However, that does not stop folks from visiting them as a country.

Full disclosure, and I am sure you must have guessed as much, I live in Dubai, and no, I am not a local. I do have a soft spot for it however, and that's after having lived in North America, Europe, Asia and the middle East.
Depends who you are I guess. For me going to Dubai means either (successfully) hiding a core part of who I am, or risking an extended spell of imprisonment or worse. That doesn't exactly make it appeal as a nice, relaxing holiday destionation for me, nor for those I might otherwise travel with who wouldn't be directly affected.

Certain people in every generation are offended by anything. These days it's just easier to make everyone aware that you're offended.
Snowflakes are a relatively new phenomena and are certainly offended a lot more than other generations, i'm guessing your a snowflake ?

He is a child and a child on the field. Dele Alli has so much talent but looks a lost soul. Until he grows up there wont be too many profound changes on or off the field
I think he is actually quite mature and intelligent but prone to acts of stupidity occasionally like most of us

I think the world is just a bit more educated now than when people called there black neighbours darkies or sinbad. People from that generation don't generally see that as wrong.
Nothing to do with education , people calling their black neighbours darkies or sinbad back in the day knew exactly what it meant the same as people do nowadays.

I'm not part of the snowflake generation if that's what you mean. Personally I can't stand any of these labels that people throw out, whether it's snowflake, or boomer, or BSODL. All it does is make a sweeping generalisation and dumb down the conversation.
