I think when you’re disrespectful to people as individuals, you go over the edge. I’m not saying RTÉ, I think anywhere that it happens. I dealt with it all my life as a teacher in the school playground, that when people are (being) disrespectful to each other, it’s nasty. It’s wrong. But to be nasty and to be abusive and to use language to associate certain counties with the Taliban. That’s dangerous. The most dangerous force in the world today are the Taliban. To be associating anyone in Gaelic football with that type of mentality, that’s a type of mentality that builds and it becomes easy to say anything after that.
