Mr Popodopolous

What's all this about then?

Recommended Posts

Any ideas??

Feel free to merge it into any thread you feel appropriate but this is a bit random/left field.

Banging on at the SLO about misogynistic discrimination- can't say I know what this individual is on about tbh but...

Aah of course.

Don't see anything wrong with it personally- does anyone else?

It never even registered with me as dastardly and sexist.

She could be a serial moaner I guess? Dunno their supporting history.

I'm sure people won't take a bit of notice. Song never registered to me as sexist or disgraceful etc. I've never read of complaints about it before.

Fair enough, political activist but I can't see that this chant is one that should be given a no to. Can the mods remove the pic and link however?

Kaseys own son sings it all the time (He posted some nice videos of his lad who’s only  4 ish ? (Cute lad) in full City kit playing football with some young supporters , and singing the KP song

Luckily , as many his age he appears to only have learnt ‘Oh Kasey Palmer you are .... Before it becomes a toddler mumble

i picture the day he learns the rest and loudly makes his first rendition at a family wedding :facepalm:

Awkward :laughcont:

 

Love the song , but & Showing my age ( and thinking how hypocritical I am , after our chants in 70s 80s ) but , as it’s such a loud and popular chant , and can keep going , I do wonder how awkward it must be for some of our female supporters or some men there  with their wives besides all the difficulties when the kids want to sing it

Im not sure even a simple change of one word only couldn’t make it a whole lot more comfortable for many without taking anything from the song

Well, to be honest the Kasey Palmer chant does suggest that women (wives) are owned/controlled by their husbands. Or, that he should have the power to offer her services to other men (against her will) ?

Why on earth would a woman need permission to sleep with someone else than their husband, anyway?

Don't know her, but from her tweets she looks like a huge SJW who seems to find reason to complain about many things.

Many chants at football are near to the knuckle if you really dig deep, lots have themes about violence which are arguably far more problematic than the Palmer one. 

These types of people are best ignored, but they'll always find a reason to complain about something.

So if I read it right, some bird wants to come to her first ever City game, and before she even sets foot in the turnstiles, she is telling us what we can and cant sing.

Her first game this season.

Lets be honest, in the cold light of day it can be seen as unpleasant and mydogynistic. Some blokes offer to hand their wives over  to a player as a gift.

But that’s the world of football chants.

Its the "I'll let you lag my pipes..." line which Emma Payne may be inferring.

As we all know women can lag pipes just as well as their male counterparts.

Cold light of day perhaps, but these chants aren't exactly to be taken seriously or literally.

Fair enough she seems to be an activist but it just feels unnecessary here.

Then she would have most of last season to be offended then, in that case.

If you look at her twitter page most of her posts are like that targeting a company, organisation or championing a issue. Whatever you do at AG you would never appease her, the goal post would just keep changing.

maybe we could change it to "my significant partner" although some are single so maybe - "my significant partner (unless I am single in which case sorry, but hey ho good job man)"

Not sure our vegan offerings would pass the test, and the leather/plastic ball is basically non recyclable. Probably best she doesn't come.

He should teach him the radio edit version........ "Oh Kasey Palmer, I'll let you dance with my wife"

Perfect for the junior section... ;)

If we're looking at the lyrics like that, it doesn't actually say the person's wife has to sleep with KP. The the singer is saying they'd give permission for it to happen, not that she has to.

Equally the singer isn't "offering the services" of her. 

But since when have football songs been literal? Korey Smith isn't actually everywhere, and the vast majority of teams (in fact all but one) aren't actually the greatest team the world has ever seen.

The words are “I’d let you shag my wife”, as in I would. The word would shows that certain conditions have to be met before it could happen, she assumes the condition we are talking about is our authority, it could equally mean I would let you shag my wife, if she agreed to it. She is sexist & making presumptions based on gender is she not?

Looking at Kasey Palmer - and the ages of most OTIB posters - the wives would probably agree too.

Might be an idea to edit the pic and remove her @ name. I see people on Twitter are already messaging her about this (probably because of this thread) and although I don't agree with her, it's not right if people start piling on her on Twitter.

Good idea.

I posted this an hour ago so mods would need to do it as the edit facility expires, but yes. I should have posted it a different way probably.

Can someone edit the OP to remove the pic and @ name?

Some chants/language can be a bit awkward when you've got young kids with you and they are at that age when they want to sing along. At the end of the day you have a choice whether to take young uns to games or not knowing they are going to hear it.

It made me chuckle before the game Saturday when my 7 year old daughter said"dad I hope we don't hear any bad language today, I heard someone say bloody 5 times last time "! She doesn't recognise other swearing yet!

Ah yes, I do recall.

Rovers/Swindon family chant.

Build a bonfire.

To name 2 yet not such old ones but are generic and our variant was the above- clearly none of these are real or literal or to be taken as such. Whether they are acceptable now is a different debate but they're clearly not literal or serious.

But still the let you implies permission has to be granted regardless of any conditions. What right does anyone have to permit another adult in their sexual behaviour? So it should be changed to "I wouldn't mind" as that's much more respectful of the choice of the wife.

 

Oh Kasey Palmer, you are the love of my life.

I wouldn't mind, if you shagged my wife.

Only, if they consented of course.

I won't put it, as a grounds for divorce.

 

This is much more wholesome song sung about loving a black man and supporting the positive choices of the wife whatever the gender the wife is..

On an actually more important note, we know from Kasey that his wife doesn't like the song, so perhaps not deliberately upsetting the wife of the player who you profess to love would be a cool thing to do.

I'm glad you brought this up.  I don't have a wife and have felt excluded from joining in.  I was gonna start a separate thread about being discrimination.  😜😮

If it is this song, I really don't know what to make of her comment.   If it was complaining about a song like 'Get your tits out for that lads' then that does belong in the bin.
