I don't know if you're referring to the Zenit incident but they both play for Moscow clubs so I don't see it being a problem... unless if you're referring to all Russians being homophobic and racist?

How do you draw such a damning inference from a facetious one liner?


Homophobia and racism is more prevalent and accepted in Russia than the majority of developed Western countries though. They recently passed a bill in 4 Russian cities to ban "homosexual propaganda". If you don't think Russians are generally less receptive to homosexuality and other races than most other developed European countries, you're kidding yourself.

Just 5-0 against a 2-years-old team?

I wasn't implying anything. I was just referring to the Zenit situation with their fans speaking against gays/minorities and the negative reputation Russians receive(and sometimes deservedly so)

It wasn't a personal attack on you

Nothing wrong with that. They're just practising their 1st touches and ball control.

11 million for a guy that'll be out of the game for nearly two years seems a bit steep but I hope he does well. Supposedly Fiorentina was also interested in Jozy Altidore, I don't know if they still are now that they have Rossi.
