When Colin Bell died recently, they showed some of his goals in black and white footage. When he (or anyone else from that era, for that matter) scored a goal, he shook hands with one or two of his teammates and went back to the centre of the pitch. There was no hugging, no silly dancing, no knee slides. And yet I've heard managers say that it is almost impossible for today's pampered prima donnas to resist hugging and kissing each other when one of them scores a goal. If one of those knee slides ended with a gashed knee, perhaps they'd stop them. And if the huggers all got yellow cards, perhaps they'd stop too.

Nothing is wrong with them, things have just changed. As most things change.

My great uncle and father in law were both footballers in the 50s. Locally they were very well known. They played hard, but fair and their knees ended up knackered from a heavy wet leather ball. They touched hands but a winning goal might provoke a team hug. My uncle has often said he doesn't recognise the sport today. But things change.
^^^ 21.33 exactly. They might have had a team hug but no kissing and slobbering or leaping up on top of one another. I dread to think what names would have been called had they been kissing.
Good Lord ! What an ancient discussion you have brought up.
Did you know that some of them actually permed their hair too ? Rumour of Brut wearing too, if you go back far enough.
none of my family could play sports
if footballers want to kiss each other with tongues let them

Oh an uncle played for his school when he was 15. Cricket. 1923 (no not a joke) - and then spent the rest of his life in a bank, unkissed and unloved probably
