QPR are tossers for even typing that sh*t.

They should’ve just accepted the charge and moved on.

Now, people will either be pissed off at them or just as pissed off at us……

Stupid idiots.

Unsurprisingly there's now a load of QPR fans on twitter banging on about Sergi 'hating the English'. Well done QPR!

Awful statement. The statement reads that Kane wouldn't have said X if Sergi hadn't of said Y (so somewhat justifying what Kane said) but it was not proven Sergi did say Y but proven Kane said X. Bunch of dimwits in their comms team.

Not surprisingly their fans are directing their hate towards Sergi after that appalling statement from Quarter Pound of Rubbish.

Classic tactic of blaming the victim.

This is dreadful by QPR. Presumably they put the case forward at the hearing and it was dismissed. What they have done is ignored that and simply said that it happened because he was provoked and released the social media trolls in doing so. Sums them up I'm afraid. I once thought their manager was a man of integrity but he's just a wide boy chancer who bears a grudge.

Yes. But let's not forget that the FA heard the case and gave him a seven match penalty. So they can ignore it all they want, but he's still not playing for seven games.

I am amazed that the mere mention of someone’s nationality causes such a stir.
But then I am of a “certain age”. Next thing will be regionalist abuse.

Does this mean that you agree that Sergi being Spanish makes him inferior?

What an odd official response from QPR.

What’s the point of that kind of response from a big organisation like a professional football club. Such a response can unintentionally seem like an attempt at justification. Which is naive from their PR dept.

I would like to know the thoughts of Les Ferdinand on this statement.

I couldn’t care less what Warburton thinks after he showed himself to be a petty irrational lemon with his “how did they get hundreds of supporters in here” statement after the home game this season.

But personally I’d think if both parties used nationality based insults then yeah equal punishment, doesn’t matter if one is “English...” and the other is “Spanish...”. So QPRs beef must be with the FA process, these panels obviously decide who’s telling the truth, and who’s embellishments are a step too far.

It wasn't "Oh so you are Spanish are you?", in case you missed it like.

Not at all. Perhaps calling someone a ***** is more offensive than including ( the fact) that they are Spanish.
The rule is that adding a national/racial element to abuse aggravates that abuse. It’s literally in the decision. Abuse on its own is considered bad but less bad. Your comment suggests you think the opposite. Mere mention of race etc isn’t offensive in all contexts- if you said “Sergi, you Spanish legend” it wouldn’t turn “Sergi, you legend” into an insult. But adding it as a modifier to an insult does. If you call Ivan a bastard, he’ll not be happy. If you call him a black bastard, you’ll need to be a fast runner to avoid a battering from everyone.

Shameful from QPR. The game needs to set the right examples but instead they are trying to almost make allowances for his actions, rather than take responsibility. This needs to stop. Very embarrassing for all concerned at QPR, thought that Warburton and Ferdinand had more integrity than this, apparently not.

I genuinely thought Ferdinand did.
Not the other weasel.

You all can write as much as you like about Warburtton , there is NO club that is bigger than him. Well that’s what he thinks. He did’t agree with the Brentford board and Owner . That why he left here. He did’t like the fact that our people made more noise ( how did we get 200 fans in ) it’s just that our people are more passionate than QPR

Why is it unacceptable to call someone a "Spanish bastard", but acceptable to call someone a "northern bastard"?

"As a club we were surprised to learn the individual views of one opposition player have been believed by the FA while the views of two of our players were rejected, particularly given that both were praised by investigators for their forthright testimony."

I suggest QPR read this back to themselves. Might be impressive testimony but bullshit is bullshit.

Nobody would say ........ English such and such.
They really do lack class.
Just as noone in the heat of the moment would say 'foreign (expletive)'. It would specific to race or nationality

It probably isn’t but it’s only quite a recent thing to be challenged on it. The dirty northern bastard chant was heard frequently before. I would imagine it will be heard less frequently going forward.

I don't personally think so, but some seem to. Do a search for "dirty northern" on GPG.

The scale of the punishment sets a precedent. The man said ‘The judge is a fool’. The man, said the judge, is a fool.....and that’s just apostrophes.

Kane is found guilty and punished and Canos ruled to be innocent. No further comment needed. We should all move on. BTW we are planning to have tapas tomorrow consisting of roast beef croquettes, cumberland sausages in red wine and eggs and bacon tortilla

No surprise by the way. QPR with classless statement. Sums that scummy club up.

In other news water is wet.

I think if you called Ivan a “black legend” you’d still get at least a weird look.

Being myself a northerner these last 17 years and cringing a little at the “dirty northern bastard” song I’m not sure this is well directed. It is an argument for broadening the rule out from nations to regions. It is possibly justifiable in the same way that it would be justifiable to include “ginger” as an aggravating epithet.
