    Todd. I understand your point, and I did not want to defend in anyway Vardy’s terrible behavior, nor did I want to suggest that the press should not cover it. Demeaning people like that with racist words is unacceptable and should not be swept under the rug, but the show intimated he was in on the Thailand scandal, and made their perceptions of his persona the story, not even the facts or aftermath of his behavior at the casino. My point was that the show has had month’s to make that point, but chose now, the time of a significant achievement to center on this topic. I think Vardy made the comments “its me” in response to Van Nistleroy chanting, but its beside the point. Its fine to call out Vardy’s antics, and critique the line of Vardy as “hero,” but in the end the show is about soccer, and I was asking them to concentrate on the field this time. My comment was not to defend Vardy as a person. He should have been punished, like Suarez, but the show has had months to talk about that. I do not want the show to talk about Vardy as “great” or a “hero” but instead focus on the sporting side of the run, and the team, where Mahrez is arguably more important.

    As opposed to the previous poster, I agree with the analysis of vardy. When suarez was the best player in the league there was always talk of his sins, now that it’s an English player with a touching back story of coming up from non league football, any talk of his sins is quickly shouted down. His reaction to the goal was something that I found to be completely opposite of how he has been presented by nearly every journalist in the country. There is always talk of how humble he is, but the comments that he has made in the past (threatening anyone who talks badly about him as well as his racist comments) and his own response to the goal (“It’s all me, all f***ing me!”) paints a completely different picture that most of the news outlets do not want to touch. For me, it’s a double standard that the media has created around him simply because he’s English and has a “humble” back story to promote.
    I appreciate that the podcast was able to touch on this double standard rather than simply talking up the “greatness” of another football player.

    I don’t believe in making soccer players heroes (who could stand Cristiano) or villains (although Vardy seems to behaved abhorrently at the casino, but not in Thailand as the other poster suggests), but I do think that the Vardy story is good in terms of football. Your show today made gossip among journalists the story rather than the very real achievement in sport. At one point you even intimated he would have bullied one of you in high school, which was frankly classist. If the Vardy sporting story was not important, you should not have led with it, but if it was, it deserved more respect on its own terms.

    Hi there, I enjoyed the podcast (first time listener) but just wanted to highlight that Jamie Vardy was not involved in the off-season incident in Thailand (racist sex film) which resulted in the dismissal of three first-team players.The players involved were James Pearson (ex-manager Nigel’s son), Adam Smith and Tom Hopper:

    Vardy was however involved in an incident in a casino which appeared to show that he used racist language:

    As the article notes, he issued a swift apology.

    Best regards
