    Obnoxiousness won't make others better. There is nothing manly or toughened up about meanness from people who are better with their mouths than with their muscle.

    They're a few words. Goes on in some shape or form all over the country. Having a little cry to the media about it doesn't make his 'plight' any tougher.

    What you do there is win and laugh in their face, if you're able to.

    I lost count of the amount of players that I marked that had slept with my sister.... made sense why my parents got rid of her since I thought I only had two brothers....

    Oh indeed it does go on allover the country, like the inter-county footballer who was jibed about his brother's suicide. That makes it right? It's not a cry to the media. Nobody is crying. It's called outing the ignorant bastards.
    If it stopped at a player teasing an opponent after outwitting him to steal a score that would be a few words. Your use of "a few words" is an attempt to sanitise scumbag behaviour. I played alot many years ago and never experienced it. I can only conclude that it's part of a latter-day cheapening of society.

    If it was monkey noises toward a black player, for example, I could fully understand the outrage. Honestly though? this type of sledging surely shouldn't warrant such a public outcry??? its painfully pathetic stuff. That St Thomas player should really try harder

    You could fully understand the outrage if it were a racist matter but that’s because society has conditioned you to think this way. Maybe 30 years you’d have thought black people needed to toughen up and get over the monkey noises.

    I think sledging generally should always warrant such an outcry whether that is a black player or a (to recall one someone told me about the other day from an inter-county game) guy whose cancer-suffering sister is apparently still “gagging” for it in the hospital bed. Not sure any of it adds to the game or that those dishing it out should actually work harder on their insults. Why not just get on with the game?

    Fair enough, I just think the barb aimed is absolutely pathetic but i suppose you have to be in the recipient's shoes before you know how effective it is

    The comment was out of order dont get me wrong
