Even if some of those jackholes were racist, I doubt very seriously they would say any of that in public knowing that there's a good chance they'll end up eating fists. So I just take it for the grain of salt that it is, and kudos to Joel Ward
for showing class. Morons are everywhere, and when you're a black man in a predominantly white sport, you're going to encounter some of them.
I've always said for years that it's not the racism that gets me off, it just doesn't take any balls to hurl racial epithets behind the confines of a computer monitor screen. I would actually gain more respect for that Londoner if he had met up with Simmonds in the parking lot and stopped him before he gets into his car then chucked that same banana peel at his face.
