True 'dat. However, plonkers like them do have a very big audience. They have the ability to shape peoples opinions, whether we like it or not.
With Brolly its all the more galling. I'd say players keep quiet around him in particular, as they don't want a garbled version of their encounter with him, to be dredged up on The Sunday Game, or splashed all over his Sindo column. Jamesy maintains a dignified silence in Boston, but he still winds up getting it in the neck from Brolly. Poor fecker just can't win !
