Well it makes a change from the media trained fake interviews you only get from players now anyway....

On the positive side, at least not happy to be relegated and got some fight in him. Guessing he'll get done for criminal damage and / or assault for that.

Doesn’t look great but needs context.
sheffield united “footballer” oil macburny, violently assaults a disabled fan with down’s syndrome who was happily cheering for his favourite footballer.

macburny was drugged up after a night of drugs and hitting women with his words, hands and fists, took great offence to being spotted in public, lashing out at the small girl with cerebral palsy in an unprovoked manner. macburny then insulted many different religions, before spitting on a ww2 memorial.

sheffield united have probably declined to comment.

Yeah, there might have been a dangerous spider on the guy's phone, so he has to smash it, and he was clearly just bundling the guy to stop him choking on a baguette or something

3 young lads think they're the business and start mouthing off, suddenly get scared when he isn't in the mood to take any and proceed to shit their pants :lol:

Surprised things like this don't happen more often to be honest.

I just mean it needs to be clear what’s gone on. Shouldn’t be hitting kids obviously and I don’t like his attitude at all as it is but would be interesting to know what’s provoked it.

I’d say the context is Oli McBurnie walking towards what looks like a teenage boy, attempting to break his phone and giving him a beat down.
Now I’d guess that teenage boy is a Wednesday fan and probably gave him some verbal shit but that sort of reaction is inexcusable. As a footballer it’s partly his responsibility to know better.

Obviously there's not a lot of context here but I'm not sure there's ever justification for hitting a kid. Teenagers are little feckers but you can't just hit them when they're being annoying, as much as you'd like to.

Don’t know the full story, but in principle, I’m all for celebs acting like this if sufficiently provoked. People think they are entitled to treat them as they wish, some of them need to be taught a lesson.

You’re for celebrities breaking the law? He committed battery and criminal damage at the very least.

Who cares? Oooh, ‘breaking the law’. I’m for men standing their ground. I’m not a lawyer and couldn’t care less in this instance what the law says. I’m for the principle of people getting what they ask for if they go looking for it. McBurnie could face repercussions for this, I’d still be in favour of what he did.

Right and wrong and legal and illegal are two different things. Well, often the same thing, but not always, to me.

If the context is these guys were videoing him for like over 10-15 mins before that, following him around and he’d gradually got more agitated after initially being cordial then just snapped, then I could understand that.

Not to mention he’s probably on super fecking strict COVID rules from the club, so any form of public contact is advised against and he can’t help it if some guys are shoving a smartphone in his face.

Whereas you sound like a square and a softie. Probably wear those open toe sandals with straps and buckles. :)

Marching up to the fan and instigating that contact is a bit of a contradiction to that suggestion, no?

That basically is the context. I’ve seen another video and to be honest it’s no wonder he snapped.

Is that confirmed info, or because everyone kept writing in comments that ‘the guy’s like 15?’.

And I still couldn’t care less anyway. 15 year olds are old enough to take lives and do so often enough. It’s not like McBurnie broke a bottle on his head or something. A 15 year old isn’t too young to deserve a slap for acting a fool. Would possibly do him some good.

Advocating that grown men 'stand up for themselves' by beating up teenagers and suggesting it would do them some good is absolutely pathetic.

This is such an old fashioned and weird way of wanting a modern society to run. I can't quite compute it. Surprised you're not saying "Those snowflakes deserved to be taught a lesson!".
