I thought his "ear cupping" gesture as he ran past the QLE was a bit out of order.
I'm a bit confused about why a player mildy reacting to abuse is out of order?
.....Ah, I get it now! I checked wuth the club, and they confirmed that each QLE ticket comes with a free match day hypocrisy voucher!
I get what you're saying Jamie, but fans should never dish out the medicine if they can't take a dose themselves
The problem is he's gesturing to 600+ odd people, most of which haven't given him much if any stick, or certainly nothing he would have heard. You can't just lump all fans in together.
By this argument, it's ok to abuse an entire race of people because one person of that race wronged you. Or treat all women a certain way because of what your ex did to you.
I've been a bit critical of him and if he joined this site and PMd me or came to speak to me then fine he can gloat that he scored and 'proved me wrong' if he wants... but to gesture like that to all fans including those who haven't had a word to say is surely a bit disrespectful.
If he'd been here months and got tones of stick from the QLE (as players have in the past) then fine, but second home game to do that after getting lucky with a poorly placed 1 on 1 that the keeper very nearly stopped, was a bit much for me and showed a lack of class.
Not a good example to set and not the way to win favour with your own fans.
How do you know he was directing it at all 600 fans? Did he say that afterwards? Maybe he was directing it at the people that have abused him. Maybe it was just a private joke with a mate sat in that stand. Maybe you shouldn't call him out of order when you don't know a thing about him or his actions.
