I think one of the problems here is that when some posters take offence at Muteys postings for being harsh/ unkind etc. etc. they then copy this by doing exactly the same to him.
I prefer the tactic of either ignoring a post I don't agree with or make a constructive reply. For me the topic is the point of interest not the person who posted it.

Some of his opinions are good, some are trash, some are controversial. No point in us all agreeing is there.


To paraphrase the Fun Boy three, it aint what he does, it's the way that he does it

To be controversial, I think people sometimes see the poster’s name then respond according to preconceptions!

Well as somebody who has often stuck up for Mute in the past (and had it thrown back in my face) I have a different view.

I agree he makes some valid points, always has. Unfortunately there is always an underlying agenda, which tends to be anti Gloucester Rugby and anti certain individuals. I don’t have any problem with constructive criticism but I do have a problem with picking on young players who will almost certainly read this. I thought the treatment of BB was disgraceful by a few posters (and a couple of people have taken shots at me over that, which bothers me not one jot) and this is similar.

I think there are a few people on here who think it’s de rigueur to stick up for somebody who frankly does nothing to warrant it.

Quite so.
Mute has many well held views, developed from a long association with local and national rugby, and I value greatly his opinion, but he does seem to enjoy being insulting on occasions. Unfortunately, it often nullifies his arguments and viewpoints. Not necessary and disappointing.
