No surprise but Meaning Evil have had a right go at Jack today. The story dominates the back pages and of course Ron Toss has weighed in with a few columns.

What do you expect them to say or write about?

Genuine question.

Local footballer acts like a complete tool, country wide condemnation and you expect the local paper to report it differently ?

A sense of perspective

None of the others tried to murder anyone though.

Had forgotten about Mason Mount. That example is actually far worse as he was out and about despite having been in contact with someone who was infected. So he shouldn't even have been leaving the house for essential items. Not that his example should excuse Jack, but I bet the Chelsea forum isn't full of Helen Lovejoys desperate to get rid of Mount or have him burned at the stake.

Isn't this "whataboutery"?

Not really, it's perspective to people that have over-reacted to ridiculous degrees on this thread.

Using an example of a Premier League footballer who has been found guilty of breaching requested isolation guidelines to compare and contrast attitudes to a Premier League footballer who has been found guilty of breaching requested isolation guidelines is "whataboutery"? Care to explain?

On TheShedEnd, they've not posted on the Mason Mount thread since the 16th. They've posted about Drinkwater more recently!

In this case whataboutery would be saying Grealish had done nothing wrong because Mount did something worse, but I don't see anything like that.

Talking whataboutery, having lost a colleague in one of my NHS Trusts over the weekend infected by a patient he was treating with no protection, maybe the murder accusation would be (not really, but relative to Jack) better aimed at the Government/poorly lead health system that is knowingly putting staff in the firing line with substandard or no protection whatsoever?
Perspective folks. Please.

Agree completely, and I made a similar point elsewhere. This is also why I was getting so frustrated with someone on the coronavirus thread over the weekend.

That's a fair point.  But the more people who respect the self isolation policy, the fewer people will need to be in hospital, and the less at risk NHS staff will be.  Morons like Jack Grealish who deliberately flout this deserve the public humiliation they get.

I'm all for taking shots at Jack, but some of the absolute shithouses who've chimed in to take pot shots. Ian Wright, Harry Redknapp, Jamie O' Hara. All paragons of virtue of course. Anyone else want to give their two cents? Joey Barton? Adam Johnson? Ched Evans? Has Collymoore chimed in yet?

Wankers.

And now Richard Keys has had his say. That's my piss going at a nice steady boil now.
