Gwladrugby: an apology

Today I’ve taken the decision to end my association with Gwladrugby.com. I’ve been involved with the site for over 15 years, and have been immensely proud of the output all of the writers have produced.  The message board, which will continue to thrive, is a well-known and respected source of opinion. It is often lively, but this is Wales. We’re a lively lot.

It’s got a bit too lively for me, which is why I’ve decided to quit. Things have become very unpleasant for me personally. Many of you may say that I’ve deserved it. I’m not going to argue with that, mostly because I don’t have the energy or the inclination.

If I have offended people along the way, then I am sorry. I have never set out to bully, threaten or otherwise hurt anyone. I have strong opinions, but so do many others. The ethos of this site has always been to seek out and expose the truth, however uncomfortable it may be for some people.

Unfortunately, people don’t like being made to feel uncomfortable, and this is the risk you take when you tell uncomfortable truths.

It’s time for someone else to put their head above the parapet now. I’ve had a guts full of this and it is time for me to go.

I’d like to thank everyone who’s contributed to the writing on this site over the years. I’ll always be proud of what we’ve achieved and I know that many people have a lot of respect for Gwladrugby.com.

What is it that they say about pride again? Oh yes, I remember.
