Time to stop this taking the knee now.

I will always support racial equality but taking a knee to an organisation that loots, riots and murders the same police officers they are protesting about deserves no one, especially sports people, taking a knee in their support....

Time the RFL/Superleague stopped it......

Fed up of hearing about this tbh.

I’m just here for the rugby that’s all. If they want to take a knee I couldn’t care less either way.

Absolutely zero interest.

I'd say you fundamentally misunderstand what taking the knee means. No one is taking a knee to the ORGANISATION Black Lives Matter. They are taking the knee to signify their support for the CONCEPT that Black Lives Matter. I only have one issue with taking the knee and that is simply the sense that we are appropriating something from a culture (American) I personally think is beneath us. I don't know what our own version would look like but I'd prefer it if we had one.
