The Value of a Handshake

Nothing.
It won’t stop racism.
It’s only a gesture of intent, nothing more.
So why bother?
Suarez to Liverpool is what Cantona was to United.

Mercurial, that’s the word.
You don’t expect decency in attitude from them; you only expect performances of the highest quality…
Or just plain stupidity…

If you want to kick racism out of football, you can start with the so-called supporters.
Charles Barkley once said, “I’m no role model.”
You can’t expect superstars to be role models. They are what they are.

Why argue over a pointless handshake?
Integrity?
Gentleman’s conduct?
Bullshit. Just look at the fans.
This ain’t golf. This ain’t polo. This is not a gentleman’s game.
This is Football, the people’s game.

You can’t stop racism with a handshake.
You can’t stop racism, ever.
But you can limit racism.
BY NOT MAKING A BIG FUSS ABOUT IT!
