FSF Posted August 24, 2010 Share Posted August 24, 2010 Something that might interest some on here Gordon Taylor, head of the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) will be speaking at a Q&A organised by the FSF at the City of Manchester Stadium on Thursday September 9th (7pm kick-off). This is your chance to question one of the most influential men in domestic football. As Chief Executive of the PFA, Taylor heads a formidable organisation encompassing 4,000 members from every professional club in England and Wales, including some of the richest young men in Britain. How should this influence the work done by the PFA?As an organisation whose most prominent members are cultural icons earning multi-millions every year, does the PFA have more responsibilities than the average union? Does it successfully tackle this through its work in anti-racism, charity, and community initiatives? Do players have a responsibility to act as role models for young fans or is this too much of a burden to bear for young men who are often still teenagers themselves? On the terraces, while we can never rest on our laurels, the battle against racism has largely been won and the fight against homophobia is ongoing too. Do players have a responsibility to speak up and tackle homophobia? To hear the answers to these questions, or to ask a question yourself, get along to the City of Manchester Stadium on Thursday September 9th. The event is open to all, and entirely free.
