Champagne scrapped from FA Cup final celebrations to avoid offending Muslim players

Maybe If I Just Pretend I Am Dead, 
The Muslims Will Leave Me Alone
The English Football Association has a long-held tradition of putting champagne in the winners’ dressing room following the cup final as a congratulatory gesture. 
But following internal discussions the FA will no longer provide champagneso as not to offend players whose religious beliefs forbid alcohol use. 
An alcohol-free champagne substitute will instead be given to the victorious club so players can still spray the contents of the bottles over each other in celebration. Watford face Manchester City in this year’s cup final on May 18 at Wembley. 
Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure, along with Manchester City stars Riyad Mahrez, Benjamin Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan follow Islam, which forbids the consumption of alcohol.

The only reason that Moslems have so much power is because the West lets them have that power.
