Protest on the soccer field 

The BBC reports that six members of Iran's national soccer team, competing in South Korea, donned green wrist bands in support of the protesters in Iran. The wrist bands were not worn during the second half, and the BBC has information that the players were told to take them off. The match was televised in Iran.

While this moment in sports may not become as iconic as Tommie Smith and Jon Carlos and the 1968 Olympics:

it may have actually required a slightly larger set of cojones, since, as the BBC video points out, the players will be flying back to Tehran at some point, and could be met by "government representatives," presumably meaning elements of the IRGC.

It could be an interesting confrontation. What regime is going to lock up their national soccer team?

Well, we may learn that Iran is that regime.

I think the government will wisely ignore the incident. Or make the return a non-event receiving no coverage in the media.

The Iraqis used to torture theirs.

I predict that some will not return to Iran.

We are seeing an astounding demonstration of courage by so many of the iranians. I do hope it is not in vain...

I'm actually happy Amadinejad remains in power. Mousavi is arguably worse, because he’s far better at lying and telling infidels what they want to hear then Ahmadinejad is, and as the architect of Hezbollah he's as committed to the worldwide rule of Islam as any Muslim can be.
