In referring to a lynch mob mentality, I also had in mind some of the media

I must admit to feeling like I've climbed out of a septic tank for reading it - but Englands's defeat to the Springboks is almost entirely down to four specific players - and their post-match demeanour is down to them missing out on a £80K winning bonus.

You can play " England Sport Bingo" with it.
Entitled - tick
Arrogant - tick
Petulant - tick
Greedy - tick
Disrespectful - tick
Complacent - tick

and on it goes.

Yes, it's an opinion piece - but in 50-odd years I've never seen quite such a vicious hatchet job in any paper.

Owen gets an extra dollop. The writer doesn't understand why he's held in such high regard, and thinks he talks in the team huddle in the way he talks to winkers like him at the press conference.

Hold your nose as you read - it stinks.
