Just do it Robin

14 posts in this topic

oh you short round bouncey thing! You appear to have a little "associative transactive disorder" going on there!

You have all the subtlety of Enola's little lad and the witish capabilities of Herman Goering after a particularly bad pint of Urlsganbrau in 1940!

A good comedian needs to exude humility and pathos! The above attempt was at least, "humiliatingly pathetic"!!

Now toddle along to the cubs and play nicely with the other little boys you like - and don't forget your subs or you'll never make a "sixer"!!

But in all seriousness, it is no big deal.

When you look at what percentage of gay people make up the populus and compare that with sport, one could conclude that Thomas' "outing" of himself is relatively meaningless these days though he has made this public disclosure at the very end of his pro ting days at aged 35!

I can only think of Fashanu (can't remember whether it was John or Justin) as being the sole person in a high profile sport to "out" himself prior to today. The averages might indicate that there are many more who feel unable or unwilling to disclose their homosexuality whilst playing pro-sport.

As a rugby fan, my interests are:-

i) can he break a tackle

ii) can he run fast

iii) can he tackle all day

iv) can he kick/pass/organise

I really don't care which side he butters his bread!

Wouldn't it be nice though in the name of equal rights if hetreo-sexual men were allowed to tackle women in the same way without incurring the wrath of the law? There is no justice in this world. Enjoy youself for ten to fifteen years and then admit that the fierce b....s and all tackle you used to specialise in was all for fun and you were not just an aggressive forward after all.

This thread has been reported by a member as unsuitable, however, in my opinion although it is not what some people may find acceptable, I can find nothing that breaks any forum rules at present. I am not homophobic but I will keep an eye on this thread and ask posters to do so cautiously in case young persons or aprents become upset.

In the article he says he would like to be known as Gareth the rugby player, but before he came out with this that was all i and probably many more thought. He is the one who has made the big deal out of it

I dont think he's made a big deal of it, he was just fed up of living a lie and needed to tell the truth, it's his wife who i feel sorry for in all this.

i don't see that a mans (or womans) sexuality is anyones business but their own, and certainly nothing to do with the sport they play. but wasn't this just a bit of banter between suggy and robin.

It was, but as moderator, when a complaint/complaints have been received it as to be acted on.
