The Everton manager believes that the organisation's work has been a "great success" and suggests that some of his team's unhappiness lies more with the football authoritiesEverton manager David Moyes believes that the Kick It Out anti-racism campaign has been a "great success" despite the refusal of several of his players to wear the organisation's T-shirts before their match against QPR on Sunday.
Several players from both clubs elected not to display the campaign's logo during the warm-up before the 1-1 draw at Loftus Road, including the likes of Anton Ferdinand, Victor Anichebe and Sylvain Distin.

"It is too big a subject just for David Moyes' opinion to matter that much," the Scot told reporters. "I did speak to the players. I gave them the opportunity. It was up to them to decide.
"I spoke to them and told them how I felt. I understand their points of view and I'm totally supportive of the players.
"I think the Kick It Out campaign has been a great success. They have done a big, big job. I know there have been some incidents recently but overall I think it has been a success. The people have tried to do it to the best of their ability.
"My opinion here is only small. Other people's are more important. There are better people to speak. I understand my players entirely. I think they're more disappointed with our authorities in the way they've taken action, not the Kick It Out campaign."
