      • Harry handled himself gracefully. To quote Terrence Malick: "There are two ways in life: the way of nature, and the way of Grace. You must choose which one you will follow." Unfortunately the media follows the barbaric way of nature.

            • A little bit of a mystery - footballers caring about people?
              I always thought their number one priority was themselves, always and forever.

              • To Jason who called harry a goose. I think you should be shipped to GWS and left in that wasteland. You have no class.

                • Why does anyone give this cretin attention? Sounds like he's read half a chapter of Chomsky and has started parroting a bunch of first year uni grievances with the world.

                    • Hey Jed, if Harry O'Brien has read half a chapter of Chomsky, that would still be half a chapter more than you. You are truly a churlish individual. Well done Harry...far more of an erudite than 95% of footballers.
