Derby players shun BBC after the Fulham game because the broadcaster cannot apologize during the race
Derby stars refuse to talk to the BBC after the Fulham race because the team is “furious” because the broadcaster does not apologize for Craig Ramage racing
- Derby players smuggled the BBC after their 1-1 draw with Fulham on Friday night
- BBC expert Craig Ramage was fired after discriminatory comments
- Ramage said the ‘young black players’ of the club ‘had to pull a few pins down’
- The BBC does not feel able to apologize until their investigation is completed
Derby players boycott the BBC after Friday night’s game with Fulham – and can do this again on Tuesday evening at QPR.
The team of the club is “furious” due to a lack of excuses from the broadcaster after comments made by expert and former player Craig Ramage on Radio Derby.
Ramage was fired by the BBC after picking out Derby’s “young black boys” and said that after a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield on February 15, they “had to pull a few pins down.”
The Derby players refused to speak with the BBC on Friday after the 1-1 draw with Fulham
The 49-year-old apologized on social media, but the BBC’s failure to do the same has caused outrage at many of the Derby team.
On Friday, no one from the club – including manager Phillip Cocu – spoke to the local BBC station after the 1-1 draw at Pride Park. There are talks going on between both Derby and the BBC to find a way forward.
It is thought that the BBC cannot apologize until their own investigation has been completed.
However, this has not happened to the players of Cocu who believe that the BBC takes no responsibility for what happened.
Both Derby and the BBC refused to comment.
Rams manager Phillip Cocu also refused to talk to BBC Radio Derby after the game
