I'm sure some believe this is political correctness gone mad or something, but his comments were absolutely ridiculous.
Almost every day I hear or read ignorant people making derogatory comments on things I hold very dear to my heart - it sometimes hurts me/dismays me/upsets me, but I'm not going to go right over the top in my reaction.
I'm not going to declare some sort of holy war on them for maybe drawing a cartoon, or writing a book I disagree with, or saying something I disagree with.
Nor would I join with others in demonising and ostracising the 'offender'.

And, if I'm not going to join with the outraged 'religious' crowd, I'm certainly not going to join with the 'outraged politically correct' crowd in their condemning/demonising/ostracising antics. Both groups are way over the top in their reactions to ignorance.

You're spot on about Bristows comments being ridiculous - but they don't merit the type of pitchfork reaction they're getting.

He's an ignoramus who wrote some ignorant things, no more, no less - it doesn't mean the rest of us have to join the outraged mob of super perfect never made a mistake in their lives judges.

I much prefer my reaction to be to forgive them for they know not what they do.

So Duncan Craig has reported it to the police as a hate crime?

He says "His comments are absolutely appalling. Bristow is ill-educated but that's not a crime. However, calling someone derogatory homosexual terms is a hate crime in my view."

So he objects to referring to an adult, male abuser of young boys as 'a poof'? And that's it? Yeah, makes sense.

As I understand it, 'poof' is a derogatory term for a male homosexual.

Bennell was a paedophile who liked little boys.Eric Bristow is effectively conflating a paedophile with all homosexuals and that is wrong.

I disagree. I think Bristow is referring to male paedophiles who are attracted to young boys. I don't see where Bristow suggests that all homosexuals are paedophiles. He is referring just to the one ficticious paedophile he would have 'sorted out, had he touched him as a little boy'. Either way it's poorly worded imo. It suggests to me that Craig is more concerned with homophobic insults towards paedophiles than the welfare of abused little boys. Although I'm sure (I hope) that isn't the case.

Bristow always was and always will be a complete idiot. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he thought that all male homosexuals were a danger to young boys which, plainly, they are not. That, in my view, is the context of what he said. I think that all Duncan Craig is concerned about is the use of the term 'poof', which describes all male homosexuals, to describe a paedophile. Whether you agree with the principles of the legislation or not, that is a hate crime because Bristow is suggesting that all homosexual males are paedophiles.

Yes, I get all that, and I could be mistaken and he may, in fact, believe that all homosexual males are a danger to young boys. I just believe he was referring to his own, fictitious abuser. It's not worth debating really, it's obviously badly written as it isn't definitive to either of us.

Why do you even need a commentator for darts anyway?
You just need a Carol Vorderman clone to count the numbers.
UK sports coverage is getting as bad as America where sports seems to be a mix of advertising and statistics with the occasional bit of action.
Even Match of the Day is probably 50% analysis; it's just football not Wittgenstein.
