Footballer disciplined over Queen comment

 

A PROFESSIONAL footballer from Londonderry has been reprimanded by his club after sectarian comments against the Queen appeared on the internet.

Dean Jarvis, 18, a Roman Catholic who plays for Aberdeen Football Clubââ?¬â?¢s youth team, ââ?¬Å?rather stupidly put an ââ?¬Ë?ftqââ?¬â?¢ at the end of a message on his Facebook siteââ?¬Â, a spokesman for the club said.

 

The comment appeared last month as part of a discussion about Protestants in relation to the pope�s visit to Scotland.

 

The messages were posted on Jarvis� Facebook page between September 16 and September 19.

 

On September 16, Pope Benedict conducted an open-air mass at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow.

 

During the thread, other Facebook members, including another member of Jarvisââ?¬â?¢ team, made further sectarian comments including ââ?¬Å?No prods in Bellahoustonââ?¬Â.

 

Last night, East Londonderry MP Gregory Campbell hit out at the youth player ââ?¬â?? who is also a Northern Ireland youth international ââ?¬â?? for ââ?¬Å?allowing this sectarian debate or discussion to be carried on his siteââ?¬Â.

 

ââ?¬Å?He needs to be extremely cautious about what he allows on his site and the football club who are his employers ââ?¬â?? and who have taken acton against other players on sectarian issues ââ?¬â?? should take action in this instance as well and ask for an explanation and an apology.ââ?¬Â

 

Last week, it emerged that two Aberdeen FC stars ââ?¬â?? Michael Paton and Zander Diamond ââ?¬â?? had posted sectarian comments on Facebook, again around a discussion on the popeââ?¬â?¢s visit to Scotland.

 

Aberdeen Football Club confirmed that the postings have now been removed and the players ââ?¬Å?spoken toââ?¬Â.

 

Last night, Aberdeen FC spokesman Dave MacDermott said: ââ?¬Å?I personally spoke to Dean when he was over in Germany last week to explain exactly why this is not acceptable.

 

ââ?¬Å?He rather stupidly put an ââ?¬Ë?ftqââ?¬â?¢ at the end of a message on his Facebook site.

 

ââ?¬Å?Perhaps we need to educate the youth team a little more. But we have instructed them about showing respect to faiths etc etc. We obviously have to tighten up on it and reiterate it more often.ââ?¬Â

 

Mr MacDermott added: ââ?¬Å?What we can do, which we are doing, is in no uncertain terms bring disciplinary action because it is bringing Aberdeen FC into disrepute.ââ?¬Â

So, this vein of sectarianism at the hill of dung runs deep.

 

Club skipper, Paul Hartley indulges during an interview he gave to a Millwall 'zine. He answered the question on being a pigeon, who do want to shit on? Paul wished to fly over Ibrox and shit on the "orange bastards below".

 

Club vice-captain, Zander Diamond hopes the popmobile swerves out of control and, "runs oer the prodis". Big Zander throws in a few, "ftq"s too.

 

Michael Paton enters the vile sectarian banter on Facebook with big Zander, lobbing a few 'ftq's and liberal use of the 'H' term.

 

A couple of years ago, it was Chris Maguire on Bebo, "cannae wait til Saturday to get intae they H__s and break Fergusons leg". Maguire's nickname at the club celebrates his sectarianism, it's, 'Bebo'.

 

Now, we have two youth players, Dean Jervis and Nick Low indulging.

 

Pittodrie is well named, a hill of dung right enough.

Why havent any of them been charged with any sectarian offence at all ?

 

Probably because there's been no official complainer.

 

We can discuss it all the we want on these and other Rangers boards but until someone goes to the Police and makes a complaint nothing will be done about it.
