neymar accused scotland fans of being racist because they were jeering, but they were jeering because he was diving! and a banana was thrown on to the pitch, and neymar was quick to accuse the scotland fans of racism, but it has now turned out that the fan that throw the banana on to the emirates pitch was a teenage GERMAN tourist in the BRASIL section, so giving that mud sticks do you think the talented, but some would say petchulant, player should say sorry for his accusations?

Thats not how its supposed to go. Scotland fans are still supposed to say sorry.
The easiest thing to do is pull the racism card which he did but when proven wrong idiots like him are never expected to aplogise.

Damn right he should apologize. He was pretty quick pulling the racist card and he needs to be pretty quick with the apology too.

I can understand his reaction b/c it wouldn't be the first time a black soccer player had a banana thrown at him during a game. I could see how he'd think what he did.

he's not paying attention to the fans, it was a friendly in london, no segregated seating, so he had no idea where the banana came from.

he could apologise for the misunderstanding but I understand why he thought what he did.

I think the point is he didnt think. He just pulled out the victim racism card without actually knowing anything about the situation.

well if you were black and knew that similar incidents had happened all over europe in multiple soccer stadia and all of a sudden a banana is thrown your way during a game are you really saying you wouldn't think the same thing?

that's pretty random to think otherwise.

why would a suppossed fan of yours be the one throwing a banana in the direction of their own player? you don't understand how Neymar would've thought what he did? seriously?

I am pretty sure I am smart enough to figure out what is going before I make accusations (sp) about people.

I have received personal abuse for being an immigrant so I know exactly what its like to be singled out so guilt trips over the situation are not going to work on me. I dont blame anybody but who actually does it to me.
