Hey, what is up everybody straight Shootin LJ here and welcome to another episode of that straight shooting view now, you know what? Yeah. Mhm, Mhm Hey, I've been wearing, I'll be wearing my mask around, I'm out in the about so I don't really need to right now, but I'm gonna be going into somewhere where I will need to but you know what? Yeah, I wanna say happy 2021 1st and foremost and let me kick off 2021 with this social media, social media when it comes to footballers and whether it be wearing the female, male, black, whatever, it's a case of social media is a fertile breeding ground for bigotry idiocy hatred and the like and it's a real shame and I based this on a number of, a number of instances that we've seen over the years where people have been abused, you've got your night ranger a few years ago, the racially abused and that crops and that sort of abuse crops up one hell of a lot on the social media racial abuse seems to be a special one that always crops up. But I want to narrative, I want to narrow this down to kind of general abuse. I know narrow and general kind of an oxymoron to an extent, but I want to narrow this down to Karen Carney. Now, Karen Carney said basic, basically said words to the effect of, I'm not gonna quote exactly because I don't want to gobble the quote, but she basically said words to the effect of, oh leads only one only really won the championship last season because of Covid and the break that they had. Now some people said, yeah, historically leads usually kind of fall off and collapsed in the last few months of the season, which they have done on a couple of occasions similar to ask knowing that capitulation they used to have in january february going into March, and by the middle of March, everything had screwed up their season. We used to have final pitch for shows about that. They start going to capitulate remember jesse fizzles famous like. But but yeah, it's one of them where the abuse and the vitriol that Karen Carney got back was an absolute disgrace. And for me, this is the problem with social media. But to me, there's two sides to this, A lot of pundits shoot like to shoot their mouths off. And to me, Karen Carney didn't actually need to say what she said. She didn't need to make the assertion that leads only won the title the Championship because of a lengthy break due to Covid. She didn't, to me she didn't need to say that. So there's pundits who have to have some responsibility for what they say, Similar to guys like say Robbie Savage, who in my view is just controversial for the sake of it. He just comes out, shoots his mouth off. I mean, I remember him a few years ago shooting his mouth off about john Kerry and john terry snapped back at him and it was at not, I'm not, I'm defending it, but I'm just saying john terry snapped back at him. Who the hell are you? And what the hell have you ever won? Here's your l hold it in the words, the words of storms. So it's what Lemons where I think pundits need to have a lot of, they need to have a lot more responsibility a lot more wherewithal. And they need to be a bit more careful in terms of what they say, how they say it and to who they're saying it too. And and about because what Connie said comments, I think it was on amazon Prime broadcast, so you're you've got an audience, you've got a big audience. But conversely legion knighted, didn't need to come out and say what they said, they didn't need to come out and say, basically works the effect of I think through Andrea rossi Ronnie, because his name, sorry if I botched that one, but he said that basically. Yeah, yeah, we here at leeds United were not happy with Carney's comments and they said it via the twitter account as well. Where is that? Yeah, we're not happy with Carney's comments and we don't like the fact we don't like the assertion that she's made and uh now for me leaves didn't really need to say that they're well within their rights to don't get me wrong because at the end of day, if someone, if someone talks smack about your club, you're gonna want to fire back at them
