JOHN Terry, football’s oil slick, has been fined £220,000 and handed a four-match ban for not being a racist, rather for saying racist-themed words. His was a “racially-aggravated public order offence”. He said “fucking black c*nt” to QPR’s  Anton Ferdinand,  and that’s enough for the FA.

The whole thing has been a gigantic mess. How it ended up in court is a worry.

Terry broke FA Rule E3, which states that footballers should refrain from using “abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour”. This includes any “reference to a person’s ethnic origin, colour or race”.

Terry got done for being abusieve. Blimey! Footballer should form a line at the FA’s doors.  Any player ever asks Terry is his mother likes Scouse cock? We know they have. Is that insulting?

The FA says “a reference to any one or more of a person’s ethnic origin, colour, race [is worthy of] an increased sanction“. So, calling his a black c*nt is worse than calling a players a c*nt or a gay c*nt.

Anyhow, it’s on with work for Chelsea’s JT, “captain, leader, legend”. While Terry was at the FA’s Wembley Stadium kangaroo court, the rest of the Blues were at a Dolce & Gabbana shoot at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.

Juan Mata tweeted this photo of a spare chair next to manager Roberto di Matteo.

Given the nature of Terry’s profile right now, a blank space might be better that featuring Terry.

Incidentally, whereas Terry got a four-match ban, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was banned for eight matches for calling Manchester United’s Patrice Evra “negrito”. Furthermore, QPR’s Joey Barton, scored a 12-match ban for failing at three Manchester City players. Did Terry get away lightly…
