EA Sports decided to drop Marco van Basten from its FIFA 20 game after a Nazi-related comment he made on television on November 24th. "We have an expectation that our commitment to equality and diversity is upheld across our game. As such, we will suspend Marco van Basten ICON items from being available in Pacs, SBCs and FUT Draft until further notice", EA sports said in a statement.

Van Basten made his comment on the program De Eretribune while acting as an analyst during the match between Ajax and Heracles Almelo. Hans Kraay junior interviewed Heracles' German coach Frank Wormuth. After the interview, Van Basten mocked Kraay's poor German with the comment "Sieg Heil". The comment was inadvertently audible for the viewers.

While some FIFA 20 players responded with understanding to EA Sports' decision, many were outraged and accused the company of being too PC. "Since when are players (and not just players, but an ICON in world football) getting removed from the game just by telling a stupid bad JOKE?? I understand his words might be offending but come on people.. he immediately apologized for these words", one player wrote on a FIFA 20 forum. 

Following his comment, Fox Sports suspended Van Basten for a week and donated his salary for that week to charity.

Sunken Urk boat's net got caught up in shipwreck: Rescue org.

Sunken Urk boat's net got caught up in shipwreck: Rescue org.

Lummetje, fishing cutter UK165 from Urk that sank in the North Sea west of Texel last week, got its net stuck on a shipwreck, according to Jouke Soelstra of rescue organization KNRM. The area around De Razende Bol sand bank is very treacherous due to the many shipwrecks there, he said to Noordhollands Dagblad.

"The mast or other part of the wreck is hidden under the sea sand, but due to the effect of the tide, such a wreck suddenly protrudes above the seabed on a bad day", Soelstra said. "Then fate can strike if a fishing net gets caught."

This conclusion is based on the last movements of the cutter, reconstructed based on data from marinetraffic.com. "The signal from the UK165 indicates that the crew tried to release the net from the wreck. You see the beacon, which indicates the location of the cutter, go back and fourth a few times", Maarten Noot of KNRM said to the newspaper. "Suddenly a cross appears on that spot: the ship is wrecked."

According to the KNRM, the Lummetje got caught up on Swedish cargo ship Ruth, which sank in 1842 after being attacked by RAF aircraft.

Lummetje got into trouble early on Thursday morning. A naval ship quickly managed to locate the sunken cutter using its sonar equipment, but divers could not go down to search the boat for days due to poor weather conditions. On Sunday the bodies of the two fishermen on board the boat - 27-year-old Hendrik-Jan de Vries and 41-year-old Jochem Foppen - were found in the boat's wheelhouse.
