Todd admitted to using the words "diving, foreign *expletive*" in response to be called an "*expletive* ugly, English *expletive*".
So Kane admitted to using racist language - which Rob Dickie corroborated, but Canos - who also used it and denied it (again Dickie confirmed this) got away with it. Had Kane have lied like Canos - he'd have no punishment, which actually gives more weight to his accusation.
This is ridiculous.

On the Offish.

Which accuasation? It does seem rediculous unless there was an independent third party who could only corroberate one side of it. Regardless and irrespective of what Kane did, Canos should have received a 3 match ban for swearing at Kane which he did admit to.
The club accusing Canos of using equally racist terms - with Rob Dickie confirming that's what was said. Kane could have denied it and received no punishment like Canos.

We don't know if there was other evidence. I'm guessing it wasn't Dickie or Canos who reported it in the first place.

These footballers eh? They really need to learn from cricket where the 'banter' between players is so much more inventive and humorous.

Kane does not appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed but he has admitted to what he said and has accepted his punishment. Hopefully this incident wont be used by some on here to have a go at him.

I really cannot figure out how the Brentford player was not punished?

Surely Kane’s position is untenable now given this and the kakay comments and the fact he’s average.

How can we call out Terry for being a racist but back him?

Everyone deserves a second chance to prove themselves but I reckon he’d be better off elsewhere

After an exchange between Kane and Canos, Canos runs over and tells the ref who gets the 4th official to make a note. There’s no other players or officials close to Kane and Canos from what I could see.

If it is true that Canos said something along the lines of ''f%%*ing English diver'' and Kane said something similair back apart from ''English'' being ''foreign'' or another nationality then I am clueless why one has got apunishment and the other hasn't.

Good to see him in the stand with Charlie and the team.....

Who knows why he wasn't picked recently ( you wonder how long the club knew about this.. ) and if it was linked to his unwise chat about his worth to the team....

If Canos was guilty of "racist" language as well, the club and fans should feel aggrieved that admitting guilt is not worth it....

I wouldn't take any notice of Jimmy Dore's Wikipedia page, Satch - it's been doctored by some very dubious people who are annoyed with him for drawing attention to certain things. I certainly wouldn't describe him as a conspiracist or an Islamophobe. He wants Medicare for all and a $15ph minimum wage (which Biden promised) and has caused a lot of embarrassment to the Democrats - particularly those such as Cortes who claim to be left wing. Aside from anything else, he is very funny. He does swear sometimes though so don't have any kids in the room if you watch him. A very courageous chap to be honest.

Only yesterday he was talking about his wiki page:

You can't be racist towards the English no matter what you say. Well that's what everyone seems to think unfortunately.

WLS indicating we're looking to get rid of Todd Kane.

Given the comments about Ozzie and now the 7 game ban, it's not really that surprising.

Only if you're using "English" to refer exclusively to the white English, which isn't what "everyone" thinks.
