    Dear Clare People,*
    I used to think you couldn’t get lower than DT.
    -Don’t forget to check down the back of any sofa he sits on.

    Keep licking…you might get an ice-cream for your efforts.

    *the paper, not the people.

    IT: O’Neill’s use of the word ‘Queers’.

    This clown has made a number of gaffs in recent times but this is by far the most offensive. Perhaps if he focused on doing his friggen job instead of making homophobic comments he would get better results. Then again, if that is what is being said in public then god knows what is being said in private.

      It’s bizarre.
      He’s a well educated, highly intelligent man.
      He should stop trying to be as funny as Roy and stick to what he’s good at.

        No big deal – he’s an unreconstructed football man not a poster boy for civil rights. Shut up gays you’re boring me now

          My point is, he was studying Law at Queen’s when Forest signed him, he’s hardly your archetypal football manager.

            Do you think that Queens was free from homophobia at the time?

            Do you think the law profession is free from homophobia now?

            Fair enough so Bertie. I didn’t know that. All the same it looks like a slow news day to me.

            Queens University has a track record in discrimination and was dragged into the courts on a number of occasions because of breeches of employment law.

            Irony is, if he was studying law it was highly likely that one of his lecturers would have been Mary McAleese and I am pretty sure she will be having words if she has his number.

          Yes there is a serious problem with homophobia in football but that doesn’t make it right or somehow acceptable. Bottom line is, if he made a similar comment about someone’s race he would have been sacked on the spot.

          The Key of Gee eh? He is not the only unreconstructed idiot so.

          1. The Key of G

            As for your comments about race they are irrelevant. Continuing the spectre of invoking the race card every time someone makes a throwaway queer comment is not helpful. I’m not advocating a return to the bad old days of Bernard Manning etc – don’t worry. But it does piss some people off when you guys claim to be offended by every single little homophobic epithet while liberally sprinkling your own conversations and heck even your usernames with slurs like ‘queen’ etc.

          2. some old queen

            You may think the comparison to race are irrelevant but then again, it obviously suits you to do so. There is no difference whatsoever. Sorry if challenges your mindset but that really is your own problem.

            That’s a matter of opinion but I would be the first to admit having never been on the receiving end I don’t really know what I’m talking about. I suppose my personal style is to choose my battles carefully though if you see why I mean.
            I experienced racism once though – in China. That was so absurd as to be laughable.

          4. The Key of G

            Note also my comments were specifically about influencing tactics. Nuance baby- you just jumped over the fence.

          5. some old queen

            Correct. You don’t know what you are talking about.

            ‘Oversensitive’, ‘no sense of humour’ and ‘no big deal’ are just weasel words to force gay people should put up with this sh|t. Young gay fellas walk away from football all the time because of the constant homophobic nicks and cuts. The manager of the national team really should have known better.

    I’m in love with a Chelsea girl …
    Why aren’t outraged gays whining about this everyday sexism?
