Doesn't count. He never brought his forearm across his chest first. All is forgiven, move along.



Life tip #24: life is just as bad as the internets. Get over the butthurt and continue on.

This dude is 20 years old and clearly makes good decisions like getting "get rich or die tryin' " tattooed below his waist. That said, we shouldn't spend anymore time on this subject.

It appears he was playing for his club and his action got him banned from the national team.

Now lets stir the pot a bit. If he was a really really really good player that can help Greece win a World Cup. Would his punishment be as severe as it is now.

The traditions and symbology of other ancient cultures like Greece are different but yet easy to exploit and demonize like the way Hitler did with traditional symbols. Just because the western media portrayed him and this as a racial gesture doesn't give me the knowledge or the right to judge and agree with punishment given. This post is like the media, stirring up crap just to give a rise and to open discussion about how controlling people want to be over others. This happened on the other side of the world and not in my back yard so I could give two shits.
Plus, who are we to judge? It's only obnoxious when you witness it and don't agree with the message. Opinions very...
I have to say I like your point of view, you make a lot of good points. I created the post just to see what people generally thought about it. Everyone's entitled to their opinions... Mine is that kid is a f**ktard. Others is they don't care.

I am so glad I live in a country that I don't need to worry about this crap.

I think it is time we take back symbols and salutes back. Almost like the black word I cant say that black people are reclaiming.

a symbol only has power if we give it power ( I think I heard that in Harry Potter)

This is the same man the world feared giving the same salute. I don't think he gives a crap any more.

Its a simple hand gesture. It only has power to upset because people let it. It is nothing more.

Don't like it, don't watch.

this. It is ridiculous to punish him. He has already learned a lesson he will never forget, and taught a lot of others something in the process.

not that I agree with but i can understand a fine and/or a suspension but not a permanent ban

Honestly, I think the permanent ban comes from the fact that Greece doesn't want someone who would do that representing their country

if you're going to represent a sport or team in a broadcast in front of the rest of the world.... flashing a HH salute isnt the best thing to do.

then to protect their image in the public eye, he was permanently banned. Don't see what there is to misunderstand.

If a NFL player's touchdown celebration was to pretend to lynch someone, he'd probably get the same thing.

Freedom of speech is all fine and dandy but it doesn't play here. This is nothing more than an employee getting fired for for a racial slur or getting an offensive tattoo on their face. The employer, the soccer club, has every right to fire the employee.

Not a lynch imitation, but I don't recall any one from the NFL getting permanently banned from the countless "throat slicing" gestures.

So you think a throat slicing gesture is the same as a HH salute?
