To all you Cheltenham forumites

Next time you see six horses die at your meeting
Next time you sit down to breakfast ,lunch or dinner at the festival  and eat dead animals in your paddy power lounges

remember you are disrespecting these animals

Is that now still o k ?

The slaughter of gordon elliot has now reached disrespectful levels. If he commits suicide now remember you were part of the reason.

Remember you are supporting the abuse of dead animals

All the horses I had were far hapier running free, not dying from a fall at a steeplechase fence. These animals are all being abused for our pleasure.

Remember that before you jump on the next bandwagon !

dont get the connection between eating a bacon sandwich with a bit of brown sauce and posing on a dead horse.....sorry......and yes nothing pains me more than seeing fatalities on racedays...but the tents go up to respect them...doubt folk are trying to get a snap in with the stricken beasts
Report Cash Is King March 3, 2021 10:12 AM GMT
Not sure the OP’s analogy is relevant to the point he’s making about a disproportionate response to the Elliott incident.

Foyleswar is spot on. A reputation can be destroyed in double quick time particularly given widespread use of camera phones and the power of social media.

The original error of judgement was then compounded by both Elliott and IHRB.

Elliott for issuing a nonsensical explanation for why he’s been snapped sat on a dead horse when he should have handed his licence in pending the outcome of an investigation.

IHRB for handling the aftermath in typical cack-handed fashion and certainly no sense of urgency.

The OP is a total and utterly 2 faced cant, the OP hounded and bullied a forumite pretty much 24/7 on the greyhound forum who sadly died this year, many had heated disagreements with said forumite but the bullying the OP subjected him to was disgusting, while most of us who used to post on the greyhound forum know each other personally now, this weapon still hides behind his username. The irony of him making this thread is not lost on me, I'd ignore all the piece of sheet says.

I said I had many heated disagreements with him and said things I should not have and am not proud of but then I met the bloke many times racing, I bought and had beers with him, I laid him bets, I gave him free tickets to the races, I may have disagreed with him a lot and argued but also went out of my way to help him.

You on the other hand bullied him right up until his sad death, you are a vile piece of sheet that doesn't have the balls to come out form behind your username, you wouldn't have the balls to meet up with any of the people you regularly  abuse on here.

You can search for all of my past posts or post what you like about me now as I rarely if ever pop my head in here anymore and it's water of a ducks back to me, however I felt it right to call you out on this hypocritical bullsheet you posted when I've never seen anybody slaughter anybody online as bad you did that man.

My o p was directed at handling guilt.

I take your points but obviously disagree.

If you let ignorance take over we will all be in the sheet as you say.

We had two choices , walk as you did or fight as I did.

I dont blame you for that at all. You have to fight ignorance in my opinion not ignore it and walk away.

Just my opinion, is there any way we can forget about it and just move on ?

To bully someone you have to identify the victim

That he had blocked them
So how can anyone have bullied him ?

And my claim that you lie and aftertime is true ,you know it, I know it and its been proven.

My sincere hope is this case will stop this sort of thing happening, it should do, i would think.

In 6 months time we will go through all of this again when he comes back, the animal rights mob and the MSM will milk that to the hilt.

Him remaining in the game is a dream come true for them, if he was cut adrift they could not do so and the game would have shown that even those at the top can be kicked out for this kind of behaviour.

Feel sorry for him if you must, but in doing so we should not allow him to become a millstone around the neck of the sport and that's what he is now and as we move forward we will see it played out.
