Err, I can’t post on saints Web, due to archaic password renewal processes. A topic there made me speculate, concerning arsenal’s caving in response to ozil’s comments about repressed Muslims in China. Arse ‘distanced’ themselves from the comments, but apparently were punished by losing a live game.
Given that gao seems effectively Chinese state sponsored, what do you think the response would be if saints fans promulgated anti Chinese state views in respect of occupation, human rights, general oppression; specifically if fans turned up with tibetan or Taiwan flags?
I obviously don’t know, as I’m in oz and the last game I went to was mk 6-0 a few years back. However, in order to encourage change, should this be an avenue to go down? I suspect it would have a quick impact, but I’m not sure it would benefit the club in the short term, but possibly in the future. What does the think tank think?
