John Beaton and The Hammerthrowers

Quite simply - horrendous.

The treatment of Greg Stewart, on and off the ball, was dark ages South American stuff. He's going to end up badly injured unless we start sticking up for our players publically.

That tackle by Durnan on the half way line that went unpunished should see Beaton demoted. They were after a Caballero type career ender on him all night but failed to pull it off.

The fact Stewart not only managed to finish the game but overcame the brutality shows how good a player he is.

Don't think they should say anything. If they do it just sjows the targetting works. Stewart like all "star" players needs the support of referees not clubs whining about it in the media. Did not think the ref had a good game last night- tried to let things flow but at times lost the plot and let too much happen.

Don't agree. It's important to highlight the treatment we're receiving. Etxabeguren also assaulted by the boy Bodul, who knew exactly what he was doing.

Deliberate tactics by united, similar to what happened under Bonetti.

Last 2 referees we've had are not up to the required standard.

Beaton was inconsistant. Didnt book Durnan in the first half for his synical foul to stop Stewart getting away but then booked Low for the same thing. Likewise seemed to let "50/50" challenges go where it looked like our player had been fouled but when the same thing happened and the utd player was left sprawling on the ground he would blow for the foul. He did try and let the game flow but he seemed like he didnt want to upset wee jakey and his band of dayglo wallopers!!

I am not sure if the treatment handed out to Creg Stewart (and others) should be raised, or highlighted, specifcally as an issue by DFC.

But there is no doubt in my mind, he is receiving some brutal treatment from some opposition teams. Again, no protection from the ref.

Personally, I feel this is exactly why we 'should' be getting on to the media about this.

We make waves, we let the SFA know that we are very concerned regarding the treatment being metted out to key players and remind them of times when careers have been ended due to these cynical and illegal attacks. (strong wording, but hey!)

This, in turn, will at least warrant them having to take notice, whether they take action or not. However, when the next hit-men try it, we make the same statement, reminding the SFA we've already raised this issue... and then quiet words will be made into ref's ears while the public face remains the same.

"Squeaky wheel..." and all that.

We dont play the dirty game on the park - but we also dont play the diplomacy game OFF the park - and we really NEED to!

As a general principle, say nothing and IMO the heavy treatment on Stewart will carry on. Needs the club or our media people to put together a wee video of the fouls, particularly the ones that are given, because they are "facts" in the football record. Some stats, how many times Stewart is fouled etc. There's no need to be emotional and confrontational about it.

All good players get the "treatment", perhaps Greg's fairly recent arrival on the stage means he needs a bit more individual coaching on how to protect himself. He does try to beat players whilst dribbling and I think that gives the opposition time to line him up.

Like Gedee's point about considering whether Greg should be used as an example. Might be more effective if it was a general comment, with the expectation that all players, from whatever club, would benefit from less hammer thrower tackles.
