    Jonathan Liew, a very good writer usually did a poor piece the other week trying to get outrage, saying there was some none acceptance of Archer because he was black basically, which is bullshit.

    It briefly mentioned Aggers but nout too bad I didn't think

    Aggers been complaining on twitter for ages about him

    But this is what he has been sending in private

    Robert on Twitter

    :lol:

    I can act the dick sometimes but I've never sent anyone messages like that ever, out of line like

    funny though

    Definitely odd behaviour but I've never liked Agnew.

    Another journo who has his head up the ECBs arse.

    I like Agnew but he’s drawn attention to an article that few read and fewer thought was controversial

    He comes across as thin skinned and immature.

    To be fair though, if someone tried to imply I was a racist, I'd be fucking livid too.

    The article was laughable it annoyed me

    There was more people kicking off with trott than archer

    But he didn’t really say he was a racist like

    Pathetic by Agnew, few other journalist on there saying he’s done the same to them

    He’s certainly not the saint he tries to make out, will remember this when he’s slating people for sledging
     
  6. I don’t like Liew’s writing at all. It’s schmalzy, sentimental and I don’t think he really has his finger on the pulse. It’s very superior
     
    Maravilla and jackpunch like this.

    Not pinning it down to racism, but certainly something up when people object to Archer playing ‘because he isn’t English’, despite the fact half the team are as English as him.

    No more so that when it happened under Trott though

    Which is the point

    Liew was saying basically its because he is black

    You make a point about passports etc, you are right, not really what Liew was tying to say

    You can't judge people by their type of skin these days.
     
  10. Aggers was openly anti Jennings too.

    Absolutely great point

    Almost to the point where it was very harsh

    Liews pieces usually do well but that piece didn’t land at all

    I wonder if the BBC sack him for this.

    I doubt they will. He's no Danny Baker after all.

    mikemanc Winger

    Aye, calling someone in a private message is exactly the same as what Baker did

    It was a private message but it's been made public. It therefore shows Agnew, an employee of the BBC, in a bad light and potentially damaging to the corporation's image which has been very fragile since it was discovered they were employing celebrity paedophiles.

    The fact that Liew published Agnew's DM shows what a spanner he is. I'm not a fan of Agnew but Liew is a complete fuckwit
     
  16. Greavsie

    Greavsie Winger

    Hmm

    If they’d had a grown up sensible conversation then I’d agree. The fact he just abused him makes it ok in my book
     
  17. The Rat

    The Rat Striker

    What I am more annoyed about is that Agnew is on holiday for the first 2 games

    What the fuck was he doing before this series started then?

    You can't go on like he did like, I don't think I have ever sent messages like that to anyone.

    Probably agree to be honest in hind sight. Social media is a mess. I guess Agnew had been on the merlot
