:D

There's usually only a few . One is too many ;)

I haven't watched a single Exeter away match this term.

Are they still wearing them at away matches ?

I actually thought Bod was joking. Obviously I was wrong.

If you go back that far most organisations have a dodgy past. Compare the Guardian to the other media outlets that are around today. Remember hoorah for the blackshirts, and the Sun’s coverage of Hillsborough? Do you really think that the actions of the founder of the Guardian over 150 years ago somehow renders an article written in recent times irrelevant?

Also the Guardian newspaper certainly hasn’t forgotten the actions of its founder. A quick google search will show that.

If you acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of the past, then all well and good, but, imho, you can't apologise for actions in a time, when, what is now unacceptable, was acceptable. I see that Oriel College have put up a plaque explaining Rhodes was a committed British colonialist” who exploited the “peoples of southern Africa”. That's fine but they also failed to acknowledge that his cash has benefitted students from all over the world and in 2003: The Mandela Rhodes Foundation, a leadership development programme for Africa, was established in 2003 by agreement between Mr Nelson Mandela and the Rhodes Trust. Now if Mr Mandela thinks it works, it works. On the other hand, he Daily Fail still spouts the same right wing crap like it did when supporting Adolf, back in the day, so work is still required.

Sad that almost nobody will see because this very rugby related topic has been marginalised and moved to the non rugby section, but I see the NCAI (National Congress of American Indians) itself has now directly contacted Exeter asking for them to change their branding.

The people who want to be involved with this discussion will see it and have there say, if they haven't already.

I do think for the most part people on shedweb are looking to discuss matters more directly related to the actual playing of rugby.

+1 - though very hard to stop a woke having a wokeish opinion on everything/anything !!

I am simply disinterested and will encourage my great grand-kids to play cowboys and (native American) Indians. :roll:
Nothing wrong with free speech or having an opinion - as long as it matches mine !!

Yet you read the thread and bothered to post. Maybe there's some other way you could express your disinterest!
