Why not force 100% black representation on all national teams and be done with it. Advertising revenue, sponsorships, stadium ticket receipts and viewer numbers will provide an empirical analysis of the value of forced quotas in a sporting environment. In short, mister mampara, it is unsporting to have quotas in sport irrespective of whether the criteria for quotas is racialised. It is intended to be a case of may the best team win. No doubt this verbal jousting over racial quotas in sport will fade away again after the election.
