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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    I think your right, pretty close at least. Are people still using the Roman in places?
