I know you shouldn't judge someone you don't know, but I've never liked Terry and couldn't see how anyone bought the '....I was just repeating it....; bit. I know the FA doesn't have the same burden of proof, so I'm personally quite happy that they didn't take the easy option and use the law case to also exonerate him,
I've never thought he was quite 'right'...I remember a few years back, when we beat them at the Lane with Lennon I think getting the winner, he made some comment at a corner and was surrounded by our furious black players...but only them...he got away with it that time...

I think it's his overall demeanour. I still don't think his 'Rio' comments were as much racist as thuggish - he just seems to me to be more than slightly 'unsavoury'.
I remember the Spurs players being upset with the man, but I don't recall anything coming out to the media as to what actually happened.
I find AVB's comments (quoted here https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/villas-boas-says-terry-massive-loss-england-185825034--sow.html) slightly odd. I'm surprised that he appears to be supporting him. I don't actually recall AVB's stance at the time, but maybe now he's caught in an awkward situation if he did support him when the 'incident' happened.
