I can advise Mr Watkins of the following. I am au courant with the new put-in law (any dissatisfaction I might express over a put-in decision is not directed at a referee, but because, in my opinion, the law is an ass). I do not whistle as the opposition kicker prepares to go for goal and I do not even sing the national anthem. As a republican I simply stand for both anthems in respect for those who do.
As for what I do for the rest of the week, well why don't you ask Mr Watkins to give me a call? Then we could discuss the 'perils of thinking by stereotype' over a pint.
