He used the word belligerent, that is what it means. He's the one describing his own behaviour. Don't argue with me about it ... ask him wtf he was talking about if that wasn't what he meant.Not paying a free is not aggressively hostile any way you cut it. His li e of thinking might have been, " nah fu** off mate Im not falling for that rubbish" but as mentioned, that is being human and it is something that will aleays be there. He has just come out and being completely honest about it while.most would.lie and deny it.
He didn't get in his grill and say " stop flopping *******". That is aggressively hostile.
A spell in the 2s might be warranted.but his honesty is refreshing in this industry..it should be encouraged in umpires and players alike. Characters in the game are sadly diminishing. I'd rather see our players speaking their mind but if coaches or umpires do it too I think it's a good thing.
Honestly is one thing. Egocentric inexactitude is another.
