Anti-racism isn't the only p.c. ideology to undermine English football - remember Hoddle by Jay Knott (02/09/12) ⇌ (Irony)
Glenn Hoddle was fired from the England coach position for expressing a religious view. As one of the few Buddhists in the soccer world, he said that disabled people were suffering bad karma from previous lifetimes. I'm sorry, but that's a logical consequence of belief in karma and reincarnation. He was penalized, not for his religion, but for taking it seriously. The England team has been going downhill ever since.
