    I posted this reply to Jamie Trecker today he just another caste system comrade.

    Jamie,

    I'm a reasonable man,

    I take a keen interest in all sports Rugby, Cricket, American, Aussie, European, but mainly Soccer(football in the rest of the globe) and I read Fox sports.com quite a bit but god use guys do PC to the extreme.

    So in regards to your article about Houston 1836 changing their name then going onto to slate European soccer(Football in every other country but the US)and how bad American sports treat minorities. Why don't you stop boring us all to death with how hard minorities have it in major sports and maybe, hears a thought! give your job to a minority that might start to make the inequalities in the sports industry a bit fairer!

    Also maybe we should ban all whites from playing sport owning franchises and administrating sports for at least 20 years maybe that will makes things fairer!!, and next time you criticize European leagues regarding race,hooligans or anything else you can think of etc could you take a look at your own backyard ala NFL NBA etc, that cares only for cash and revenue that has ignored and buried it's head in the sand for decades in many incidents over rapists, murders, crackheads, wife beaters that have often frequented the major American sports over the last couple of decades, but writers and networks are part the multi-billion dollar sports industry gravy train. They tend to toe the partyline for fear loss of the gravy train and all the power and wealth it brings their way.

    Kind Regards

    One a cheesed off Brit.

    Well said. As long as the mainstream media continue to publish liberal screed after liberal screed, they will continue to lose readership and viewership, as the people abandon them en masse for the internet and "real" news outfits.

    Kudos Celticwarrior for writing the letter. As a native Texan with family roots going back over 150 years in Texas, I am offended that the Houston franchise changed it's name from the 1836. To a native, it is a slap in the face to the memory of brave men, both Anglo and Mexican (called Texican before independence), that fought and died for Texas Independence.

    Yesterday, Texans remembered the anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo, where 180 men were slaughtered by a ruthless dictator. These men died to create a nation where they could raise their families free from the corrupt rule of Mexico. Now this state has become a haven for Mexicans who come here for work, yet are offended by a soccer team that chooses to have a name that respects the sacrifices made by Texans?!? What a bunch of crap!

    My great great grandfather fought in that battle. He later became a colonel in the Confederacy. Britton Dawson was his name. He had a town named after him. Maybe if the Mexicans completely take over they will change its name. I'm so tired of this crap. We're giving our country away with no shots fired. [​IMG]
