John Terry Refuses to Shake Hands With FA Chairman David Bernstein

Chelsea’s John Terry refused to shake hands with Football Association Chairman David Bernstein today in a ceremony in London to hand over the UEFA Champions League trophy to the FA.

“It’s a difficult one for me – he went and spoke about me in the court case,” Terry told Sky Sports News, referring to the FA Chairman’s role in Terry’s court case last year where he was cleared of a racism offense but later banned for four matches by the FA.

Bernstein was the person who stripped Terry of the England captaincy after his racism charge.

“I didn’t notice anything,” said Bernstein, regarding Terry refusing to shake hands.  “My relationships with everyone here are really fantastic. I didn’t notice a thing and I think we should talk about more positive things than that sort of nonsense.”

What do you think? Was John Terry correct in refusing to shake Bernstein’s hand, or did Terry refusing to shake Bernstein’s hand show what type of individual Terry is? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    It’s like the guy is trying to fit in as much BS into one career as he possibly can. What is next on his list? Can’t they get him some help to straighten out his Actions?

    This may be a controversial thing to say, but I actually enjoy borish behavior from athletes. I mean, I’m not looking at them to date my daughter or come to my house for dinner. Just don’t be boring. Do something weird or rude or strange. I’d rather he kept his borish behavior to drunken fights or teammates wives and NOT racism, but JT makes fandom more interesting.

    On another note, I don’t understand this whole crap about making these guys shake hands all the time. I mean, they don’t like each other….why should they shake? We generally would be better off if we had less passive/aggressive behavior where everyone is polite in public and then savages each other behind closed doors. Hell….let JT and the FA chief have a minor scuffle and settle it.

        Maybe? I fully admit that I like to watch a good dumpster fire. Here in the US, so many of our athletes are horribly dull OR they are doing horrible things when they are in the news: drunk driving, beating wives, etc.

        These guys only entertain us professionally for 90 minutes per week. I want more. Get caught smoking cigarettes on the train. Yell something foul at the opposing manager. Forget basic Biblical stories. I love all of that stuff. It makes the workweek more fun.
