Being angry with him - perfectly reasonable.
Feeling let down by him - perfectly reasonable.
Thinking he was right to be fined and given a warning by the club - perfectly reasonable.
Wanting him stripped of the captaincy - debatable but a reasonable stance.
Calling him a murderer, or potential murderer - unreasonable.
Wanting him sold for embarrassing the club - unreasonable.

Seems pretty straightforward to me

I'd agree with all that.

However, I can accept and understand that there will be some who feel selling him is the right thing to do even though I disagree entirely so I'd say debatable, and reasonable but wrong :-).

What about the wrapping the car in a different colour nonesense?

Selling a player has to be reserved for the most serious of incidents.  As it stands, all Jack has done is breached the stay at home restrictions.

I think most, if not all of us think it likely that he was p%ssed.  However, like everyone, unless it can be proven, he should be given the benefit of the doubt.

Selling Jack would be detrimental to the club.  Most other clubs have had players who have done far worse than Jack.  Those hypocritical mongrels down the road being a perfect example.

Personally, I don't think there is any justification to demand a sale and as for the attempted murder claims, they are just silly.

Oh - I am angry, as I would be with any 24 year old upstart who thinks he's above the things that the rest of us live by.  He made a statement urging people to stay at home and most likely had a good giggle about it with his mates later on that same night.

Does anyone know if D.I Barry Nose has got to the bottom of the case yet and collaborated all the friend of a friend of a friend evidence so we can make sure this heinous Villain gets the death sentence.

A genuine question. Why are people angry about this?

JG has been a stupid dick and hopefully has learn't his lesson.

I can't understand why anyone would be angry about this. Disappointed yes, but angry?
Maybe because people are dying and the NHS is about to implode due to Covid -19. And people doing irresponsible things like going round their mates houses with the lads and potentially spreading said virus to vulnerable people who might die from it? Just a thought.

Yes I agree. I think this thread should be locked for about two weeks to stop spread of wailing of the self-righteous.

Indeed and let's be honest, if SJM invited any of us round his place for a cuppa, who wouldn't go?

He already gave up a month's salary for Acorns before this, I think.

Still an evil, murdering, bastard, obviously.

Bottom line is he should at least lose the armband.

Or is being Captain not about leading by example anymore?

Roy "thug" Keane was captain.  Is that kind of example acceptable?

No absolutely not. In fact I just read your post after seeing this.
