Tania Hird: “At this time, James and the Hird family are in need of privacy. “We ask that this privacy be respected."
I guess some people have a different definition of 'privacy' to me.
I can't see how a public slanging match between the Club and that dickhead Smith would do anything other than contribute more to the public discussion of Hird. Now I'm not James Hird's doctor, but I doubt that would be a good thing.
But I would hope and expect that X ripped Smith a new one. Just not via some media statement. I'm sure the conversation, one on one with Smith, was a lot more direct than some carefully worded statement in the media.
Well to quote Tania Hird - she was the only person to like my Facebook comment that Gil should watch his back because he will probably be Fitzpatricks next fall guy.
The thing is that Smiths comments / articles are two and four days after Tania called for privacy. He rejected her call for privacy.
The EFC should be absolutely calling out Smith for his conduct - what he has done is ten times worse than any scumbag journalist did even at the height of the saga. Efc should be calling for his resignation as his conduct has been appalling and against all moral fibre.
FFS - he is abusing a bloke, a former EFC champion, while he is in rehab days after he tried to commit suicide FFS!!!!
