    When I first quickly glanced at the message I thought I was getting a free van Basten icon 😆

    Selling for near 900k about 10 minutes ago. EA will probably change the price range.

    Gonna have to remove a bunch of cards if they're doing this for a joke.

    I actually believe this has made more people search for what he said than if they'd have done nothing

    Imagine if ea made this permanent and his price range dropped to Max 1000 as it has done for all other removed players ( there removal was tragic and not comparable to this). I would find it hilarious that you have paid 1 million for a worthless card.

    That is a good point, possibly removed from your club 500,000 coins added to your account?

    I think EA are more likely to just reduce the price range to 100k or something.

    Surprised they didn't cap the price before the message.

    Wtf does it mean to "suspend items". Like permanent ban or just temporary?

    They’re hedging their bets, but no way is he getting back in now. Imagine the uproar? Not worth the drama to EA.

    I presume until he comes out and says he was misquoted and simply trying to seek a hail for a taxi.

    In seriousness, this is risky territory. The guy hasn't been arrested, tried, or convicted of anything (I'm sure our Dutch friends can tell us of they have laws banning hate speech and that), so I don't see much difference from a legal standpoint between this and Ronaldo's Las Vegas allegations. Ronaldo wasn't taken out the game (and no charges were eventually brought).

    Maybe they're just taking a moral stand? That's up to them of course but again, we have precedent with Luis Suaraz (who was deemed by the FA to have made a racist comment) and his lack of removal for the game.

    In short, while I'm not going to comment on the rights or wrongs of their decision (I'll leave that to others here), it's the lack of consistency I find a touch troubling.

    His card is trash anyway. I've never seen anyone go out of their way to use him TBH.

    Ea only temp exclude him because they are not serieus about it but just scared that if they do nothing somebody will twitter something and they loose rep. The mere fact they havent just removed him completely is because they expect to make money of his prime and moments card in the future. Thats disgusting.

    There is a difference with making a joke around your mates compared to doing it in the work place. If I made dumb jokes at work I wouldn’t have a job.

    EA have made this decision as they don’t want to offend a lot of their customer base, it’s a business decision like everything they do.

    EA have opened a huge can of worms here, there’s many players in the game who could be removed for similar things and they also allow team names that are offensive. They have Pro players who have been caught using racist words live on stream. I find it laughable that they act like they have morals yet they would happily push a form of gambling onto young player. I would rather them aim some focus towards this game.

    To make that kind of joke says something about the person who said it. Disgusting from MVB.

    I also find it depressing the amount of people on here defending him, obviously people do not understand the offence this comment undoubtedly caused to a lot of people.

    His apology was also pathetic.

    So @EA_Roger has as already been noted, many users of this game create racist team names, some of which are regurgitated on the Squad Battles mode... I suppose that you are finally going to take action on this matter too?

    It’s not like he said it on purpose on live tv. It was a joke! Incredible what people get offended at these days.

    Incredible what people don't think of as offensive these days.
