Funnily enough I was talking to a friend of mine who refs and he explained that its all about the distance the player is from the ball. Obstruction still exists as a rule but only if the ball is not within playing distance.

This is taken direct from the FIFA rules-

‘the player does not hold off the opponent with his arms or body.’
WTF are they looking at then?:hehe:

People of colour = Ok
Coloured people = offensive

I’m not saying that the term ‘coloured’ is ok, but surely if ‘coloured people’ is inappropriate then ‘people of colour’ should be too.

Bastad fireworks. I’ve not been able to take my dog out after dark for 5 bloody days now. I understand a day or 2 either side, and maybe even the nearest Friday / Saturday but it’s bloody Monday, bonfire night was 4 f••king days ago. F•••king c••ts!!
Someone was letting them off at about 2pm yesterday.
Llanrumney for you.

Whilst I don't know for sure, my guess is due to the use of the word coloured being used for segregation on buses, water fountains etc in the U.S in the '50s.

It's just the French/Welsh/most European languages way of structuring sentences.

Just like Castell Coch is the "Castle of Red", or Stade Rennais is "The stadium of Rennes" if translated without rearranging the sentences.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we lived in a world where we didn’t have BAME or POC or LGBTQ+, and we just had “people”.

yeah I get why ‘coloured’ would be inappropriate but I don’t get why ‘people of colour’ isn’t.
It’s just an ever so slightly different way of saying exactly the same thing.

Here we go, Wikipedia comes to the rescue..

The term "colored" was originally equivalent in use to the term "person of color", but usage of the appellation "colored" in the Southern United States gradually came to be restricted to "negroes",[12] and is now considered a racial pejorative.[13]

It would be, but it would also need to be a world where we don't have racists, homophobes, misogynists etc..

“Oh my days” seems to have worked it’s way into the lingo in recent years. Gets on my wick it does.
If you’re that surprised at something then “oh my f••king christ” is much more appropriate.

One thing I’ve noticed is bellends putting the word ‘super’ in front of everything to let you know that their excitement/anger/happiness etc. is so much more profound than everyone else’s.
