Bokke Befoked

Where there's smoke...

The Springbok team management has emphatically denied allegations that players staged a “silent protest” by not covering any of the emblems on their jerseys whilst singing the National Anthem at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.


“We refute this allegation in the strongest possible terms,” said team manager, Arthob Petersen.

“The Springbok players and management support both National emblems – the Protea and the Springbok – which have been acclaimed and approved by government.

“As a mark of respect for both emblems, the players took it upon themselves not to cover any of the emblems during the anthem singing and decided to rather interlock their arms. Their decision to do so was fully endorsed by team management.

“To suggest that this was some form of protest is totally untrue. The players feel strongly that the two National emblems must be given equal prominence and they should therefore be commended for their actions,” Petersen said.

The Bokke are a major thorn in the flesh of the local native population (I hope that phrase is sanitised enough for Greg)
When the locals finally do get their way, there won't be very many victories for ama bokke. I suppose then we'll be hearing a lot of hype about how they "almost" beat so and so or put up a "magnificent performance" against so and so.
