Whether or not you think taking a knee is making a difference or not, to boo it is a very clear symbol of your own hatred and racism. Simple, no other explanation for it. Pathetic

Not necessary. For instance I agree with the message but not the BLM movement as whole. (Yes I know taking the knee has tried to distance itself from BLM but not everyone understand that) 
However Saying that with my experience  of Millwall they are more likely to fall into the mouth breathing. Knuckle dragging  racists than any sort of political message

I'm bored witless with it all personally.

I couldn't care less if you're bored of it or not, booing sends a very different message though.

Dont agree with that at all. I would wager 99.9% of people booing are doing so because they dont agree with the black lives matter movement which as Uwe said rightly or wrongly its associated with. If you want to see it as hatred and racism then fair enough, I prefer to see it as showing discontent at football supporting a violent and racist organisation.

Do you think all those players are supporting any organisation or do you think they're symbolising standing up against racism?

The players? I think they're probably doing what they are told. Doubt many of them give much of a thought either way.

If it was just about standing up to racism there would be no issue and I doubt any booing of any sort.

But that is all its about. It's people who want to have an issue with it that are making it more than that. It's an excuse.

Whether you agree with the BLM organisation or not, surely everyone should be on board about the underlying message and the symbolism of taking the knee. 

Wasn't taking a knee started by NFL players anyway? BLM have incorporated it into their protest?

Yep. Like I said, just an excuse.

    • Plays well with a man alongside him. We seen that for a couple of months under Woodgate when he played alongside Fletcher and they scored that quality goal against Millwall. But other than that we haven't seen anything from him so it's hard to say about his strengths whilst at our club. But at Forest and P'Boro his strengths were playing in the poaching role alongside a striker - something which we have never done. Pointless and waste of money signing which is made worse that it's our record buy so we should of done everything to accommodate him and we haven't. Both parties to blame for the failure
    • Get in! England look really slick out the back today! 
    • What are Britts strengths though? He’s been here for 5 years and we’ve been saying the same every season. I know he’s played under Monk, Pulis, Woodgate and Warnock but you’d still expect to see his strengths from time to time?
    • Yeah I agree. Got a feeling Warnock will regret it if he starts Britt much more.  Warnock will lose a lot of fans if he continues with Britt imo which is a shame but I understand it.
    • Yeah England can’t blame anyone else for that
