The Belfast Telegraph as a tally of all the key stats in rioting. “115 shots were fired at police and 146 blast bombs thrown”. 116 vehicles were hijacked. 81 policemen injured, and 216 plastic baton rounds. There’s no mention of civilian injuries.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet.

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.
