Not totally unexpected this, but ahead of QPR’s home clash with Chelsea, Anton Ferdinand dodged shaking hands with both John Terry and Ashley Cole.

Looks like there’s life left in this story yet…

    *Boohooo*, *stamps feet*.Now that we are done acting like children can we get on with the football.
    In other news the economy is in meltdown and the police and politicians spend their time investigating people saying mean things to each other online, and in real life.

  3. Stiff says:

    What an absolute muppet. Harden the fuck up Anton you wanker.

  4. Alex says:

    Why didn’t he shake hands with Cole?

  5. Alan Duffy says:

    @alex Presumably because Cole supported Terry during his trial etc.

  6. Stiff says:

    Because Cole backed up Terry in the racism trial.

  7. Alex says:

    Ah okay, I bet Cole is wishing he perverted the course of justice now he knows what he’s missing out on.

  8. Neil says:

    Why are people defending Terry and criticizing Ferdinand? No one defended Suarez when the same thing happened – and Suarez is no more a racist than Terry.

  9. Wilma says:

    When did Ferdinand become the bad guy?

  10. Fnarf says:

    “Suarez not a racist” — uh-huh. I think you have the perpetrator and victim mixed up.

    If they want to go through this charade they should go all the way: straight red card for player and manager for failing to shake hands, before the opening whistle. Or get really cranky, like me, and declare a forfeit, 2-0 to Chelsea, everybody goes home. I’m sick and tired of hearing about this bullshit. And mind you, I hate Terry and Cole and Chelsea.

  11. Stiopa says:

    Ferdinand is an asshole, wieśniak zwykły karwasz twarz.

  12. Solomon says:

    Red card for not shaking hands? Are you out of your mind?
    Terry’s lucky not to get nutted every time teams stream past him.

    Would you shake the hand of someone who you believe had racially abused you?
    Would you shake the hand of someone who’d pretended to be your mate and then fucked your girlfriend?
    Would it make you a big hard grownup to act like it never happened for the sake of premiership sponsorship and the comfort of the tv audience?
    Be a man? None of them are men. They are all children in arrested development cushioned by wealth and fame.

  13. JimJam says:

    When did Ferdinand become the bad guy? When he refuses to move on……
    Promoting seperatism and being a racist. What did John Terry do wrong? When was he proved a racist? Where is the proof? Who stood on the witness stand to back Ferdinand up? Where is the proof? Anton Ferdinand didn’t even hear what was said, it was some twat looking at the TV that got their knickers in a twist.

    This shows what Ferdinand is as a man. Move on you big flippin tool.

    @Fnarf: if you hate chelsea then f*** off from here!

  15. Dean says:

    I think that a bookie somewhere should open a book on who will be the next Premier league player to not shake Terry’s hand.

  16. Jack says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see the whole handshake thing disappear next season.

  17. JT says:

    Clearly everyone here criticizing Ferdinand has been fortunate enough to not have been racially abused before! Ignorant people!

  18. plops says:

    Who fucking cares?! If you don’t like someone that much don’t shake their hand, why does anyone else care? Why this is getting so much coverage I have no idea.

  19. Mr. Chopper says:

    Wasn’t Terry found not guilty? As much as I hate EBJT, in a court of law he was found not to have done the things he was accused of. Yet still fans call him racist…

  20. Vans says:

    No one has mentioned how ferdinand shoved that kid out of the way, that is worse than not shaking his hand, you cant push a kid because you have your own stupid agenda. Chelsea players took the high road, both ferdinand and park come out of this looking like idiots.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Pathetic if the FA scrap the handshake.
    Who cares if he didnt shake his hand, if you thought someone was being racist towards you, REGARDLESS of any court, would you still shake their hand? ……….. Didnt think so.
