    Wayne Hennessey cleared of making an offensive gesture on the grounds that he didn't know what a Nazi salute was results in many posts suggesting he most certainly did know what a Nazi salute was.
    Perhaps he really didn't - we can't prove he did know.

    Joey Barton claims he was provoked leads to many posts saying that no way could he have been provoked.
    If he says he felt provoked it's not up to us to make a judgement and decide he wasn't really provoked because we can't prove it.

    Similarly, if anyone feels this post is irksome or provocative I would accept that because I respect how you feel about it.

    I suspect Joey Barton would feel provoked just by looking at him.

    Pol Pot said what he did was due to a misunderstanding. So I agree with you, a book can't be judged by it's cover.

    Barton may have felt provoked. Doesn’t justify laying a hand on his opposing manager

    Yawn. At least Nudger has a sense of comedy about his trolling.

    I find your post irksome and provocative, which, by your rational, allows me to legally kick the **** out of you with no repercussions. When would you like that administering?

    I think you've been reading too many of the secret barristers tweets.

    Easy Tiger. That's not quite how it works.

    You start off with questions like - 'Are you wearing a baseball cap?'.

    Bet you're crap at Guess Who?
