Goading

What's everyone's thoughts on senior professionals goading the losers at the end of a game? Especially a big game.

Everyone think that's okay or not? Does it lack class?

Keen to hear everyone's views.

First O.F game of the 97/98 season, Gough scored and ran up the park doing a 'Ten in a row' gesture with his fingers. Gutted. Then Stubbs scored in the 91st minute and the rest is history.

In all honest it depends a lot on the situation, I for one thought Brown was more than justified doing it to the sheep fans who had been giving him pelters when he did his wee daft dance after 3 Aberdeen players couldn't foul him sufficiently despite one even just booting the baw aff his heid

I agree, but then you have folk who would celebrate Brown doing that but chastise Logan (for example) for doing the same thing

We're all hypocrites.

No it wasn’t. Rangers fans will tell you he was ‘raising the roof’, and we got beat 1-0 in that game.

You’re thinking about the rearranged game when Stubbs equalised.

There's definitely a line between giving some back and outright goading.

Players themselves know when they're sticking up two fingers as opposed to rubbing someone's face in it. As do the authorities and their referees who try and live by some rule book they struggle to either adhere to or try and interpret on a game by game and player by player basis.

Such is the fun of subjectivity.

I guess it depends if it's in retaliation to any chants, abuse etc.

Adebayor suffered some horrific abuse and chants aimed at him for about an hour, he then ran to from one end of the pitch, didn't say a word but slid on the pitch and put his arms in the air.

Arsenal fans then proceed to act like they've just been told there's a bomb under all of their seats and try to get onto the pitch.

Not all players and managers are blameless but the root cause of this issue is the fans behaviour.

Rangers won the Gough one. Think Stubbs was a Negri goal

On the pitch is different to off the pitch.

Klopp wasn't goading - that was just emotion.

Lustig, well its hard to know? Its a physical game. Sometimes players will go too far with their aggression leading to verbals. I wouldn't call it goading if its a reaction. Ferguson and Shinnie are not exactly shrinking violets and can take it.

Broony taking 'treatment' and bouncing up is what the game should be about - character. Much rather have that than cants rolling round holding their face.

Fans complaining about goading are erseholes and just at it as an excuse for not being able to control their neanderthal low EQ probably after shouting all sorts during a game but somehow that doesn't count as goading?

Some belters from the past must be high on The Goading Charts.

🎼We hate Colin Stein, he’s a p..f🎼

🎼The hills are alive with the sound of “Gemmel’s a bustard!”
