Discussion in 'Korea' started by Seol Korea, Jan 26, 2012.
Not to mention this:
So is the KFA in Eninho's case.
The players Qatar are naturalizing are "excelling sportsmen" as well.
At the end of the day, both countries are naturalizing foreign players via different methods.
Mudang, go take some reading comprehension lessons.
Resorting to personal attacks like a bitch.
"For the sake of having a better football team." LOL. And Korea is naturalizing Radoncic/Eninho to end world poverty AMIRITE? Face it, you can't own up to Korea being in the same class as Qatar so you're trying to spin a feel good story of an "excelling sportsman" earning his citizenship. How noble. Well guess what, those players Qatar naturalized "earned" their citizenships by merit as well.
You aren't making any kind of efforts to understand the message that's been told repeatedly.
And do you even know what personal attacks are? Calling me a bitch would be one example.
Neither are you. There's no difference between what Qatar has been doing and what Korea is trying to do. At the end of the day it's the same shit, a foreign player wearing another NT's shirt.
For the rare time, I agree with Mudang.
This is a HUGELY slippery slope we are going on here. If someone shows enthusiasm while someone in a back room offers them piles of moolah to join the KNT... are they not mercs?
Country of birth, where one spends the majority of life, and yes ethnicity are far stronger arguments to me than spending a few years and taking language lessons.
What exactly is it that you think Korea trying to do?
In your words, "make a better football team." Which is exactly what Qatar are trying to do yet everyone shits on them for some strange reason. I guess people just can't own up to what they themselves really are.
That's what you think. Koreans back home pity you [some despite you] for not speaking Korean and many of you will think of you as an American.
Once again, VERY LITTLE ROOM in this discussion for opinions from those of you whom aren't Korean citizens. And you guys aren't making a good use of it either.
LOLOLOLOL. Exhibit 1:
In what way is Korea trying to make a better football team? Does this 'Korea' person have a gun at the back of Radoncic's head, threatening him to naturalize? Jesus fcking christ..
Simple. They can't grow their own talent so they have to rely on foreigners to get the job done. If we had 5 guys with swinging dicks ripping it up in the EPL, Primera, Ligue 1, etc. scoring goals galore we wouldn't even be talking about Radoncic. Our team is in the shitter right now so they're taking drastic measures and selling themselves out.
If KNT is just one Eninho away from actually having a great "chance" then argument might be different but come on...why would we want to resort to hiring mercs?
No s***. Thus showing enthusiasm (genuine or not) to become culturally acclimated seems really marginal in my view.
As for citizenship, feel free to talk to the korean netizens and ignore us gyopos but this is a worldwide football issue.
I'm going to blow my head up at some point in this conversation. How exactly do you guys intend on stopping Radoncic from being Korean? He's becoming Korean the same way you and everyone else in your family have become Americans and Canadians--through the law system and not through ethnicity nor bloodlines. How would you like it if Americans talked about your parents not being white enough to be an American citizen?
All you gotta do is get famous or be good looking and they'll "welcome you back" with open arms. It'll be like you never left!
this is no different than england, italy, spain, or germany do. we just have never done it to this point. the path to citizenship has already been set and anyone living in Korea can do it. radoncic has spent the majority of his career in Korea at multiple clubs, has shown interest in becoming a citizen for over 5 years now, has the respect of most fans. the better question is if CKH isn't manager and it's CKR would he be doing this for eninho? probably not
No-one's stopping him from "being" Korean or getting Korean citizenship. Sure, take the test and snort some gochu-jan and wash it down with a soju-makgeolli combo to celebrate. We just don't want him to play for the KNT.
That's because we never sold ourselves out. And the majority of you guys in 2006 were snidely making France=Africa remarks.
and as for Radoncic staying in Korea ... do you honestly think if he got an offer from let's say Manchester United he would stay? K-League is as far as he will go in terms of skill level.
Okay my head's been blown. I'm out of this thread.
Apparently hihi thinks the final hurdle for Radoncic to really "become" Korean is playing for the KNT.
Its NOT a question of citizenship. Thats the whole point. With the right money put in the right hand I believe you could probably get citizenship in most any country.
This is a FOOTBALLING issue. I think you should have to declare @ 18 and live with the consequences outside of your country splitting into 2 or more pieces.
You pass the requirements/obligations you're in. Simple as. Everything else is pure fluff.
