NO excuse, NO reason to do this
Totally agree.Thats my angle of frustration especially that i have a daughter and would want to do serious damage(equally)to these 3 parasites should God forbid,she was in that girls shoes.

To put Cusack and Walsh on the same level as Humphreys is insane.

They made very, very bad errors in doing what they did, for sure, but cop on. Kimmage got it right on Claire Byrne tonight.

Not sure who has put them on the same level.I haven't heard the Kimmage comments but i'd say the journalists have each others backs on this one.The silence from certain media,in newspapers and social media is astounding.But sure its what you'd come to expect in this country.Also on this site,there have been fellas down the years coming to his defence on sporting issues.....mmmm the silence now is deafening.

Coming to whose defence? On sporting matters? What are you talking about?

Before I knew he was a pedophile I enjoyed Humphries columns and agreed with a lot of his opinions. Should I now renounce those opinions, because of what he did.

Ohh sorry,i meant to say Donal Og.I never mentioned anything about renouncing.But when people are quick enough to defend or speak out in support on issues then i believe they should be as quick to condemn also.

"The silence from certain media,in newspapers and social media is astounding.But sure its what you'd come to expect in this country."

What exactly do you want them to do? Submit to a public stoning because of some faux outrage online.

Kimmage was fair in his words last night imo.

Public stoning sounds a bit outdated.Intersting that you never replied about your twitter idiots comment.You obviously have an issue with modern technology.I simply have an issue with DOC writing a letter of character reference for a convicted paedophile in order for him to influence a judges sentencing of that person.He has used his fame wrongly and there should be consequences.RTE,the GPA,THE EXAMINER,all employ him and are mainly funded by the public.I personally don't think he should be allowed stay in these positions because he has abused them (for the very reasons he was given those jobs/roles)he tried to influence the sentencing of a paedophile by giving a character reference.

He didn't give the character reference because his is famous though. Most character references are given by people who know the defendant - family, co workers etc.

What he did isn't an abuse of anything. I think he was wrong, but in the same way as the George Hook thing I think the notion that he has to lose his job because of it is absolutely over the top.

Would have to disagree there.I'm sure a family member would have known TH a lot better or even a neighbour.Its been a case where down the years,politicians,pa rish priests,nowadays sporting and celebrity people your so called high standing members of society give a character reference.All of which should not be allowed imo.But he was asked because of him being famous.How well he knew him is anyones guess but tbh i would say the fact that he knew of the circumstances of the case is worse.Sorry but theres no defending these actions and yes i think he has tainted his image where the public are concerned and should not be re employed in thise roles.
