    I've seen a few people on twitter that they should be allowed to black up. They're citing Sol Campbell whiting up in recent voting campaign as double standards and hypocrisy. Shame to see so many still ignorant, I don't think these people have a legitimate reason to be angry at the campaign tbh
    From what I read it was just a rumour and it was never their plan to go as Bob Marley at all. Hartepools final day fancy dress is always classic, I remember seeing them on the tube one year.

    Kick it out have issued a statement wrt blacking up as Bob Marley. I'm not sure a simple rumour would gain such traction.

    I think it's an excellent unique tradition tbh I have no problem with them wearing dreads wigs and Jamaican colours I just don't see the need for Blackface. Going as Bob Marley is a not a good fancy dress choice on it's own anyway, it's basically going as a stereotypical Jamaican which is a bit boring. There are better fancy dress options out there tbh

    Also interesting that they're up against the 4 teams gunning for safety. Things could get very scrappy and I can see some teams dropping points.

    Best thing about that Deener goal was Gomes' celebration.

    We're 1-0 down at Hillsborough with 10 men. That's a sixth successive defeat. So fed up with Leeds

    Edit: Flash Scores says we've had a man sent off but BBC Sport says it's still 11 vs 11

    There really are some stupid people on here. Why shouldn't they black up?!
    Kick it out have, as they often do, undone a lot of good work with an utterly ridiculous statement.

    Why do they need to black up? Could they not dress up without having to black up?

    I'm not black so it's no skin off my nose, but if people find blacking up offensive then it should absolutely be banned.

    Who does find it offensive though? Keith Curle has said he finds it harmless fun, when the rugby star blacked up to dress up as Bony, Bony said he was happy with it. It's just a minority who take offence to everything.
    It's like the Sol Campbell issue. He's a complete you know what, but I wasnt 'insulted' that he painted his face white. It's double standards just to back down to a minority of people who like to play the race card.

    This is exciting stuff! Watford promoted as it stands with Fulham leading Mboro at half time.
    Wigan could be relegated with Wolves ahead just before the break.



    Oh and Leeds finally won a game lol.
