This weeks Mugg takes us away from Soccer and on to Cricket. Although there were plenty of front runners from Man utd and Arsenal. Rio Ferdinand in particular. But I will award it to Richie Benaud on a harsh suspension on Herchille Gibbs. Gibbs was given 1 test and 2 ODI'S y Benaud. Lets review the Incident. Gibbs was quoted as saying "YOU F#$$ING ANIMALS, AND YOU F#$$ING PAKISTANI'S"
Now here is my take.Firstly the owe shouldnt have said f$#$in Pakis, But is it equated to saying F$%KING Ozzies or F#$ING POMMIES. If Gibbs said the latter then would he still be racist. I dunno. The word F$CK also has numerous meanings. It is used in fights(#$%& OFF),while making love or even as an adjective if you like(I njoyed the F*(k It can be used in past tense and presence while making love or fighting. (I #$%# him(catering for our lady bloggers/her). Anyway Im drifting. So what was the ban for Richie. Was it for the extensive use of the word F#$k. Calling the fans Animals,or saying "YOU F$$#en PAKI'S.
Look our owes as well as the PAKI'S are no saints and yes I agree As a sportsman you gotta lump it. But what Gibbs said is it racist. What do you owes think. I think it was too Harsh a ban . So Richie Benaud sit Snug AS OUR MUGG
