Big Ron Gone...
Ron Atkinson has (quite rightly) resigned over his "off-air" comments on Tuesday night.

Calling Marcel Desailly 'lazy', as he did, was fair comment. In his opinion Desailly was lazy in the way he played football on Tuesday night. But Atkinson couldn't let it lie. He called him, "a lazy, f-word n-word".

Ok, words aren't necessarily racist in themselves of course. It is the intention behind them. The meaning. But I think Atkinson's meaning was pretty damn clear here. It was racism, pure and simple. Bye, Ron. Don't call us...
