Malky Mackay and his defenders show football remains in the dark ages
All the bright lights and vibrant colours of the new Premier League season are a misleading cover for an industry that doesn’t understand the modern world

The use of the word "banter" to describe Malky Mackay's "disrespectful" text messages has been the focus of widespread criticism. The case raises questions about the way the word is used, says Lucy Townsend.

The League Managers Association's use of the phrase "friendly text message banter" in relation to former Cardiff City manager Mackay's texts - which it acknowledged were "disrespectful of other cultures" - provoked an angry reaction.

Former England player Stan Collymore attacked the LMA for its "acceptance of the 'banter' of casual racism". Eurosport.com has described it as "the day banter died". Football365.com said the term was "frequently used to obfuscate and trivialise issues that continue to impair football's integrity".

The LMA subsequently apologised, saying it had not meant to "trivialise matters of a racist, sexist or homophobic nature".

Not followed this two deeply but where the messages sent on a club phone or a personal phone?
Is this another example of the thought police slowly taking control?

Mixed feelings on the texts.

But like most "salt of the earth" British football managers he seems well dodgy where football finances are concerned, so probably better that he is kept out of a mangement position.

The support of 'arry Redknapp says it all.

I was hoping someone would know.

It's well known that Tan had a major falling out with Mackay, these texts were part of a dossier on alleged misconduct sent to the FA by Cardiff City, it isn't too hard to guess how and why they were leaked to the press.

So how did Tan get them? Where they sent on a mobile phone owned by the club?

Not clear, probably but the club appears to have obtained search warrants for their homes (is this even possible?)

If they did that's some breakdown in relations!!!

Would the phone company archive all text messages ever sent? Did the club as them for all texts?
