Would take him in a flash but if we can't afford Donovan then we can't afford him either.

Are Brit and Aussie racist then? And I suppose Argie is too. Racist means denigrating somebody for their creed, colour or origin, it has nothing to do with using an inoffensive diminutive for their nationalities.

On topic, however, I agree with the idea that Moyes could work with this guy but sadly I think our lack of budget may once again thwart us.

It is all about context though innit.

Speaking of icons for second rate national teams, maybe Rodwell can become one too.

A lot of it is about context or how a certain term is intended. But Brit is just a shortened form of Briton and as such it's not offensive in the slightest. I just find it a bit pathetic - if someone called me a Brit I wouldn't bat an eyelid. But if I called them an Argie etc - out of familiarity rather than any racist motives - then WW3 would ensue! Maybe next time I should kick off and see what comes of it.

I would like to know at what point shortening a name becomes racist - if 'Japanese' is acceptable and 'Jap' is racist, does that mean anything in between is borderline??  :bonk:

It's like calling a Scotsman a Scot, an Australian an Aussie, and a Frenchman a cunt.

please see: context, denotations, connotations.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Would it be racist to say that if we signed him, he'd probably do well at the players initiation karaoke?
