Thanks a million for the football updates, mate. Some fans have become out of control and thankfully Rio is standing up for blacks. This is why a gay footie would be afraid to come out as openly gay.


Rio Ferdinand is a sexy azz MFer.


Okay, another incident of European soccer fans yelling homophpobic and racist slurs. That;s why I dislike that sport. .


Eh. Not really intertested in Brits.

Did you mean to say 'interested'?


You don't have to be, Thomas. I love black British men.


Wow. Didn't know there was such a strong sentiment about our friends across the pond. My BF is black and gay, he is from Manchester, and lives here in the States. Just my two cents, but I like this site because it 'mixes it up' and gives news from around the world.

I think that it's somewhat important that a black footballer wants to fine and penalize tams who allow fans to yell anti-gay insults. Just my two cents.


Its amazing that someone would express that negative sentiment on Rods site. Rod has CONTINUALLY presented varied news from allover the world with the key ingredient being that is usually gay related and or afro-centric ( i.e. black). Of course the US election affects everyone ( everywhere) so that is featured as well.

I like that fact that he presnet how black gays and their friends are dealing with issues and enemies abroad BECAUSE we all learn from each other...

There are other blogs that deal 100% of the time with inner city thuggish black men who sleep with men (MSM) who are uninterested in anything other than the next sexual encounter, pot , and gangbanging BUT thankfully this is not a blog like that!

Thanks Rod for featuring Rio, soccer and the UK...

Nahtans that is an excellent point, my brother. I am Black, a native Brit and live in Toronto. I always come to this blog to catch up on what little Black gay news there is from England, the Continent and Africa.

It is always surprising to hear comments attack Rod for being cosmopolitan. We need to learn from each other.

You don't realize how many of my friends in Canada and the UK read this blog. Congrats to you Rod and keep up the fine reporting, especially on Rio.


I've been a fan of Ferdinand for a while now and I gotta admit, I only read about him on this site. You rock, Rod!!


I couldn't agree more. The teams should receive heavy fines as a means of controlling their fans' behavior. Some Italian teams had to play to empty stadiums because of the behavior of their fans. If the same penalties were imposed across the league, then I bet you there would be more intense policing of what occurs in the stadiums, as far as human rights are concerned.
