MOSCOW -- Fans of two-time defending Russian champion Zenit St. Petersburg are calling for non-white and gay players to be excluded from the team.

Landscrona, the largest Zenit fan club, released a manifesto Monday demanding the club field an all-white, heterosexual team. It added that "dark-skinned players are all but forced down Zenit's throat now, which only brings out a negative reaction" and said gay players were "unworthy of our great city."

Zenit were the only topflight Russian team never to have signed a minority until this summer, when they acquired Brazilian striker Hulk and Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel for 80 million euros ($105 million). French midfielder Yann M'Vila declined a move to the club in August after receiving death threats.

The fan club insisted that "we are not racists and for us the absence of black Zenit players is just an important tradition that underlines the team's identity and nothing more."

So who is ready for the Russian World Cup in 6 years?

We made it through a Ukrane/Poland Euro Cup with minimal lynchings, so we may be Ok.

In the same way 1960's Mississippi was worse than 1960's Alabama.

    • Not sure why people keep talking about Allen and a transition to DE. The guy isn't transitioning to DE in a 4-3. You might be able to plug him in at DE situationally like in goal line situations or 3rd and short, but he's not going to be a full time DE in a 4-3. He's a three technique DT in a 4-3. Think Short, Aaron Donald, Fletcher Cox etc.

    • Yeah but it's been one sided for a while now, teams have been stacking the box against us for what now? 3 years. 2015 we were able to make them pay for it but until our wr's not named KB and Olsen scare teams it will be this way
