(Daily Mail)   The fan club insisted that "we are not racists and for us the absence of black Zenit players is just an important tradition that underlines the team's identity and nothing more." Oh, and no gays either   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 12

This is a much bigger problem than fighting over goal line technology. However Sepp only cares about his precious game when its on the field. Racism, corruption and bloated costs just don't matter in the long run.

Non-white players?

Don't be ridiculous. There's no such thing as a Black Russian outside of a drinks bar.

Russian fans also threw bananas at NHL player Anson Carter a few years back, so this isnt surprising.

Chivas Guadalajara and Athletic Bilbao don't have any black players and no one seems to have a problem with that.

Have they stated they don't want any as well? Bilbao traditionally take players from their surrounding area, which being Basque isn't surprising they are all white.

Fifa doesn't care. They fined Bedtner more for having an unofficial sponsor on his pants than the Serbian FA for the racism on their game against England.

Not knowing about the specific situations, there's a difference between circumstances simply resulting in the team being pasty, lily white and fans actively petitioning the ownership to prevent black players from playing for them.

Bilbao only wants Basque players, but Zenit has Hulk who is Brazilian. So the whole "maintain their identity" thing is already bullshait. At least Bilbao are actually trying to preserve Basque culture.

I also think the fact that the Basques really want to show they are separate from Spain is driving them on this one.
