Sinn Fein's Bart Simpson gambit…

Brendan O’Connor apparently soft pedalling on Sinn Fein this week, nevertheless has the best line of the weekend – “you know the rules of this as well as I do, Gerry. Brazen it out. Do Bart Simpson: ‘I didn’t do it, nobody saw me do it, you can’t prove anything’.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
