Sky Sports just done a piece on it  - basically taking the piss.  Usual undercurrent of "Leeds are nazis" but nothing said

Fucking hell that's shite, managed to make it worse than the current one which takes some doing. Big balls up from a sports media magnate, strewth.

Re: New LUFC Badge Crest Thingy!

I'm really not OK with this.  It's that bad, it's harping back to NF and Zeig Heil days, that's where it came from.

I really fucking hate it, it's taken something away.

Are we not taking a massive leap in outrage here ?

Its hardly harping back to the National Front , its just a shit badge that probably cost a  fortune.

Re: New LUFC Badge Crest Thingy!

Aye, no political connections, just a daft celebration/greeting thing. And a shit badge.

You may not be but I really don't like it.  I hate the fucking Salute, I do believe it has nazi Salute origins and its just landed today.  Its shit awful.  Yeah I'm overreacting but you can't say "it's just a......." with football, it means more to us than that.

They even quoted a Tweet from DHM - the one where he says it suggest Leeds is an "all white" club

You can say its just a shit badge because that's all it is. The last one was shit and this one has well out shitted it.  As things stand it does not appear to be part of a right wing plot to subvert Leeds United.

Beside's if you believe Gore's mate the bearded one it originates from Glyn Snodin!

Re: New LUFC Badge Crest Thingy!

There's plenty of people I know who when we catch each other in the pub do the sign to each other...its just a greeting like a nod of the head.. usually met with a knowing smile. Just a bit of fun.. and a habit.   No Nazi connections although that probably is where it started. I don't think the younger supporters knows that.. it just means Leeds are in your heart now doesnt it.

But the badge is gash

Re: New LUFC Badge Crest Thingy!

I remember it being Glynn Snodin that used to do it every time he came out, it was a pride thing, definitely not NF

Re: New LUFC Badge Crest Thingy!

Yeah it started in it's current form with Glyn Snodin that's correct but it was adopted in a time when there was still zeig heiling going on and it's not a million miles away is it?

I fucking hate it and the defiance coming from Angus Kinnear in the face of 50k wanting it gone is a big fuck you to fans.  Thought this kind of shit was a thing of the past.  We are a laughing stock.

I know I need to get some perspective, it's a badge, but I really hate the fucking thing.

No it's not a million miles away but I remember the Leeds Leeds Leeds chants at corners from a time before the sieg heil chants but then that might have been because there were no sieg heil chants at those particular matches.

And there were plenty of matches with sieg heil chants.

Re: New LUFC Badge Crest Thingy!

Definitely has fascist origins but that is long in the past now and is a harmless arm motion gesture salute thingy nowadays.

The badge is so bad it's good and you should keep it just for the laugh. It's only football and isn't worth getting stewed up about.

It was aged before Snodin, he just did it all the time. I remember it from about 81ish, especially at corners, LeedsLeedsLeeds and all that.

out of all the pisstake photoshop images doing the rounds I did like the subtle point that doing this arm and fist action does mean the horrible badge would be blocked from vision.
