So this protest doesn’t work for me. I can not support this kind of action. What if one guy gets a boner. That is not good. Pretty disgusting actually.
Two German football teams in the town of Oer-Erkenschwick in North Rhine-Westphalia played at the weekend completely naked, as part of a protest against money in football.
The game was organized by the artist Gerrit Starczewski
“The football system is sick, that’s why we all get naked,”
“Everybody wants to have authenticity. But I think you are only particularly authentic if you do without all the other stuff, really everything, from the advertising banners to the clothing,” the 34-year-old artist said.
The players only wore football shoes and socks, with the sock colors separated by team in order to differentiate who played for whom. Players’ numbers were hand-painted on their backs.
Surely there must be other ways the teams could protest against the commercialization of soccer. Like playing dressed as businessmen or something other than being fucking naked.
