Hi, Catmad here! You may be questioning the title? Well, that is because it is! Does every human deserve Human Rights? Yes! Last time I checked, being able to have your own opinion was a Human Right. So why did FIFA claim that it was prohibited for a player to display any personal belief, opinion, religion etc. It’s an outrage! Vladimir Putin denies his citizens their Human Rights, but can we criticize him when FIFA (something England participates in) denies it’s players one too? Politics and Football should only mix where appropriate. In the case of a player/team manager expressing their beliefs, why can they not do this? Is it so bad? Is it because they are in the public eye? Well, if it is because they are in the public eye, then why can’t they express their opinions and beliefs? People go on the news, make quotes in the paper! That’s opinions and beliefs making their way into the public eye! So what is so wrong about football players expressing theirs in the same way? Can anyone reason in the comments why it’s acceptable to deny someone a Human Right, considering all the points in this post? Personally, I think it is unacceptable and I don’t think anything is going to change my mind. But I’ll be open-minded, see if you can. But right now, I still think fining someone £20,000 for supporting their country is ridiculous. I still think firing people who are trying to stop racism just proves it’s a racist country. I still think having a go at someone trying to remember their murdered father is unacceptable. What do you think? Make sure to consider every point when reasoning, because my mind isn’t going to change easily. If you agree with me, say why.
