Dawson 'disgusted' by Manu?

If you needed evidence that Dawson is now a total media hypocrite, here it is.
'Disgusted'? Considering what tours that he was on got up to (catalogued by Dayglo and others)?

The mans done what he's done, the Law of the land has had it's say, not really interested in anything else really. I dare say when he does get back on the pitch, he will make up for it.
Not that I'm bragging, but haven't we done some thing of a similar vein when a hot headed yoof?(though the punch up I had with a policeman was on the pitch).

That's rich, considering that Guscott was once, as a car driver, involved in a fracas with a pedestrian.

He was cleared of any charges, but reading between the lines, he didn't exactly avoid a physical confrontation.

Silly boy to get p*ssed and get into a fracas-no big deal except his high profile and the loss of his England place.. could benefit Tigers immensely....

Have to agree with Dawson. As much as I like Manu as a player he has to grow up and take responsibility for his actions. In the past many on this forum have criticised players from other teams for thuggery so why is it different when it's one of our own?

If the lad needs help then the club should provide it. His behaviour was totally was totally acceptable - I just hope that this is the end of it - we can't afford any more chances .

Can we please get some perspective here:

1. Manu hicked a taxi;
2. Manu pushed a poliewoman in the chest;
3. Manu was fined 1 weeks wages.


No blood was spilt. No bones were broken. The Magistrates deemed a custodial sentence was not appropriate.
Still keeping the faith!

No Bill, some people have no perspective and incredibly high moral horses that they have probably never come near living up to themselves - bit like most politicians.

At least he didn't try to end another player's career by cynically breaking his elbow. If he had he'd be being lauded now instead of being thrown out of the game.

SCW is another one. Can't we have another Olympics and have him focus on anything but rugby for another four years.

Its very disappointing to have somebody of his stature writing Manu may have made his last appearance in an England shirt.

Assuming he recovers from injury, that is a ridiculous statement and one that SCW is fully aware to be be absurdly wide of the mark and untrue.

It's just getting ridiculous. He's been a prat, he deserves some condemnation but my goodness there isn't half a race to be the most offended. His behaviour is inexcusable but it wasn't THAT bad.

To quote Dawson
'He deserves everything he gets, he's got a terrible record'

Jumping off a ferry
Wearing the wrong gumshield
Punching Ashton
Making bunny ears behind the PM

Hardly terrible

Dawson went down in my estimation when he appeared on QOS and is even worse on Rugby tonight. He appears to just want to say something to almost wind people up..., but doesn't have the nous or 'personality' the others have.

Manu's been v stupid, he's got his punishment, Tigers will manage him, nd hopefully sort his head out, let's move on.

side note - has taken a big headache away from SL's england selection.

Yeh i feel the main difference between Healey and Dawson is:

Dawson says thing to wind up people but will always want to be liked hence why he doesn't usually go against the vocal majority.

Whereas Healey will say anything without giving a **** what other people think, and will happily call out all his critics esp on Twitter.
