don't bowl there said:I must have missed something, didnt Leigh Montagna come out and admitt that he said that sledge?
I don't see why religion should be so protected. It's like saying... I choose to believe _____ on the basis that I want to, and you're not allowed to say anything bad about it.
They all knew who said it from the start...Lyon was laughing about it on the box last night and didnt seem to think it was any big secret or anything noteworthy.
Cant imagine its the first time Lovett has copped it...wont be the last either. Nothing wrong with reminding him about it.
Take the issue of religion. If one player said to another "Yeah, well, you're a f__ing muslim, mate" they are implying there is something wrong with being a muslim. That is not acceptable in our society.
If one player says to another "You bash your f__ing missus, mate" they are implying there is something wrong with bashing your partner, and the view of society agrees with them.
Provided, of course, that the second player WAS guilty of violence toward their partner, the first player cannot be censured for stating this fact, or condemning the other player for it.
It's the equivalent of getting a shoulder injury on the footy field and then chosing not to get off.
And what credibility was that?????Footy Classified showed the vision last night which clearly showed Nick Riewoldt as the player who sledged Andrew Lovett as a wife-basher last Friday night.
The show promotes itself as having "no room for the feint hearted" but then Hutchy doesn't have the balls to name Riewoldt as the sledger???!!!
What little credibility Hutchison had as a serious journalist and not a muck-raking, disingenuous, self-referential argument starter disappeared last night.
