Don’t have a problem with the Elliott suspension. It is clear what he was doing. Question I asked at the time - not sure it was answered as it was deleted soon after for some reason - was in relation to that Liverpool impersonator...did he make jokes that alluded that Kane was disabled, or just mimic his speech/voice? Because people have been impersonating people for years with “funny” voices...like Mike Tyson, David Beckham, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Owen, Stevie G etc....it’s pretty much his career talent.

Well you have to ask yourself what it is that’s “funny” about Kane’s voice and you have your answer. It’s a cheap sh*t played fir cheap laughs and the exact same reason why Elliot was mocking for.

Posts get dejected if a certain poster gets involved as he has a problem keeping things respectful. Anyway hope you get my response before it’s gone

Elliot was just a kid when he did the video. Hell he's just a kid now and everyone makes mistakes. He deleted the vid apologised for it and now he's copping his suspension. All good and we move on now.

Mate, your opinion, and you’re entitled to it. Personally, I don’t see the difference between that and the 1,001 bad Trump impressions, “Woy” Hodgson, Richie Benaud “2 for 22s” or the ol’ Wenger “voyeur” stuff. As Jody says, we move on. :thumbsu:

I’ve explained why it’s different, if you don’t get that then that’s fair enough

would you be this upset if it wasnt about harry kane
I would like to think yes. It’s not a matter of being upset (it’s not exactly been keeping me up at night) it’s just pointing out how mocking ******ation in the 21st century is no longer acceptable. I Won’t deny that it being Harry makes it more “personal” to me though, but as I said I’d like to think I would condemn it no matter who was targeted
