    Well, inspite of the fact that the player in question was an idiot, the stuff you say he wrote was not racist. Unless I'm missing something and Canadians became a race of their own... Not gonna get into contemplating whether or not his assertions were valid in your case, given the fact you don't seem to understand the concept of racism ;-) 

    Jure was that not unnecessarily rough? The concept of racism isn't that simple anymore and the meaning and/or usage of the word may have changed in places.

      Race discrimination here covers Nationality and Ethnic Groups; Scots, English....... French Canadians for example.  The Oxford dictionary definition also includes Ethnic Groups. 

    Wonder what wgt think, I can't search the person named in the first post.

    Wasn't necessary, but I was in a snide mood. I did put a smiley at the end though...

    Hey Frank, just tell him go eat the mard, my tabarnak crunch! LMAO

    Drette the same! Still less worse than being called a "frog".

     

      We can speculate and assume . The whole thing is borderline this and that . All the way back to the exchange in the game . Individual perceptions and interpretations vary considerably . And could be close to how was intended . Or way off base .

      And all we have are a bunch of varied opinions .

    FYI, it will give you a better translation if you replace the 'a' in the word marde with an 'e'. And the word tabar*** derives from tabernacle which also exists in English. These expressions mean nothing for French from the Metropole though. Truly religious folks expressing feelings in divine ways. 😁
