My opiniom remains that Morley's tackle was dirtier and more dangerous. Plus he has more previous than Attila the Hun. I am not even complaining about Coley's sending off or his ban. And yet Wires make sneering, dismissive posts about my opinion while expressing their own views as gospels. It appears my opinion is shared by plenty of others, inc non Wigan fans, and hence objectively not bonkers.
If this had been an anti Wire thread one of them would have gone boo hoo and had the thing locked.
You think my initial response of:Ah, now that's a surprise.
was sneering and dismissive? Really, good God!
How can somebody express their own view as Gospel? They are my views, I regularly use IMHO etc. but I am allowed to express them, and am allowed to challenge other people's.
There are plenty of people who think that O'Loughlin deserved a ban, in fact the furore it caused at the time was very similar to the Morley one, and guess what, it gets dismissed on here as a red herring.
I was happy to engage in decent discussion, see the posts with giwildgo, believe it or not, not everybody has an agenda, not everybody hates your beloved Wigan, and my original involvement in this thread was to highlight the fact that we get complaints about consistency whichever way it goes.
O'Loughlin gets let off - fans go mad saying there is favouritism to Wigan.
Coley gets a ban - fans go mad saying that Wigan are victimised.
The only consistent thing here is that the fans go mad, they really can't win.
Are you going to bang on about that thread getting locked in every thread? It is irellevant, God knows who reported it, and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't even a Wire fan who did. I know I certainly didn't and from knowing other Wire fans style on here, I would be stunned if they complained about it!
