    Nah, read it again: a great sportsman recognising the greatness in rugby. The Will To Win.

    Keano would have taken a kicking every week, but he would have given it back with interest. Only soccer player who deserves respect.

    And Vinny Jones, because he just wasn't a footballer at all.

    Let me clear up my stance here (I'm getting quite a lot of heat about this on another board): I honestly thought he was a good Soccerer - As a player definately from a better mould then the Ronaldo/Gerrard/Drogba fall-on-the-floor variety.

    However, behavior such as this always made me think he needs bringing down a peg or two. As a rugby player, he's be in the same disliked category as Shalk Burger.

    I actually agree with you Mite, if every Irish soccer player had Keane's attitude to the sport we would be a lot better off. The Ultimate pro, the ultimate competitior, but not the ultimate sprtsman.

    I do respect him,hate him and like him all at the same time though

    Being a twat never stopped anyone being a great sportsman. Keane is in the same mould as Dallaglio - it's very easy to sit back and call then names, but they're characters who absolutely maximised their potential in every way possible.

    Also, Keane fits in with a very small group of very macho footballers. In every other sense, I hate people being macho. However in football, it produces players who won't dive and act, because it's gay. This is the only type of footballer I like.

    I know, I know. He did his time, and no whinging about it.

    His respect for rugby sits perfectly with the Saipan walkout. That controversy split Ireland down the middle - happily, the corrupt plamas doubter ****-f***s are now bankrupt. Woot!

    (attempt to unite my fury against injustice with rugby and economics and character and life)
