I have my own opinion on it. I was asking for yours.
My opinion is that McGuire milked it.
It helped mitigate him lashing out with the boot if nothing else!
Anyone that thinks McGuire is whiter than white and not a seasoned pro capable of foul play, dirty tricks etc., is either blind, a fool or both!
That isn't a slur on McGuire - as I have said, he's a seasoned pro.
