    Sometimes I think David Luiz is about to perform an exorcism on his goal keeper when he makes a mistake. It is getting really creepy.

    As if Football needs another reason to segregate its fans. Ask Glasgow how that ends.

    Yeah it is extremely annoying.

    I dont' mind the superstition of crossing yourself but dropping to your knees and pointing to the sky is just a performance. David Luiz is such a ****.

    The link you posted is really refreshing to see but why aren't the media commenting on it? If players aren't allowed to lift their shirts to push political beliefs then why are religious messages allowed?

    It's ridiculous, but some of the dance celebrations are worse. Just cringeworthy.

    I hate most goal celebrations. You are right, they are cringeworthy but that makes the religious ones seem even more inappropriate.

    How long before there is a holy war on the Football pitch? It would be quite amusing watching Daniel Sturridge in hand to hand combat with Demba Ba.

    Can you imagine what happens when you throw Islam into the mix? I think It's the whole performance that grates though. Should God exist I don't think he needs some Sideshow Bob lookalike pointing at him every time the prick walks onto a football field.

    Yeah but if they want to make arses of themselves I will happy sit back and laugh. Overt acts of religiosity are dangerous.

    Haha, I take it you mean Luiz? He does. He's useless as well.
