It certainly speaks volumes for today's compensation culture that such a case was even considered, never mind taken all the way to Court. Unhappy 

 

To extend that point a bit Conor, it would probably mean the end of sport in the country as we know it, as I doubt any junior football, GAA or Rugby club would have say, 10 grand lying about spare in the event of some judge deciding to take a dropped player's side (although any judge with any bit of sanity could not have taken this fella's side).  

SD mentioned Judge O Donnabhan takes no bullsh*t, but going on his comments, I would say that as well as being a sensible fella in touch with the real world, unlike some of our judiciary, I would guess he also has children and is familiar with some team sport of some description, might have even played (& been dropped) himself at some point.  It seemed he could barely hide his contempt for the case of the plaintiff.

The kid himself isn't really the issue here, this was without doubt driven by his father. I salute the legal lads who took this chap's money, and I hope they got paid upfront, but looking at it, there wasn't a hope in hell this could succeed, I can only presume they decided to run with it as yer man was so determined to sue. I do note that even though bullying was mentioned in the case, they didn't sue the club for bullying, which I would imagine is generally easier to prove than PTSD, therefore you can only assume the legal lads looked at the case & decided the evidence wasn't there to prove bullying & ran with this instead (while laughing away to themselves when yer man left the room).

PTSD is something people usually associate with victims of war, or violent crime, or violent road accidents, it would take a legal fella of considerable skill to persuade anybody, never mind a judge, that getting dropped from a football team constitutes a trauma. 

What did make me laugh though, was when yer man was asked to give examples of PTSD behaviour, said he locked himself in his room, and threw his phone against the wall. This would differentiate him from exactly zero amount of teenagers, something I think the Judge was well aware of. Very hard to get the image of Harry Enfield's Kevin the teenager out of yer head reading that. 

With any luck, this self important idiot will be charged with both legal bills (2 days of 2 barristers & all that goes with it, nice), but it is amazing it got this far in the first place.

Great point re PTSD being associated with genuine traumatic events Deise.

I think the judge was missing a trick by not pointing this out, would surely have put some much needed perspective on this ridiculous case. I would have loved to have seen the lad's and dad's faces if he had.

As you say, the dad certainly deserves to be landed with the legal bills for both sides, I'd love to see his face then!

I see he's on the books of Waterford now and he was with Ramblers U19s last season but left after one of the neglectful coaches was given the Ramblers 19s jobLOL
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

Justice served?  FFS, they shoulda just hopped in their car and fooked off home, they're an embarrassment.  As the judge so diplomatically said, the father "lacked insight".  I hope he doesn't lack funds.  Gobsh*ttery at its worst.

An absolute joke .

Unfortunately the society we now live in is top heavy with parents / kids who throw a fit because they don't get what they want. The da should be locked up for defamation of the coach if you ask me .
l hear you are a racist now, father ?

I don't get why costs are decided at a later date. What's to decide? He brought a ridiculous case and lost. The headlines should include that he's been hit with a bill for 10k or whatever it is to discourage other idiots.

''Not overly blessed with insight'' was how the judge put it.LOL

As someone else already mentioned, these utter fools should be held up as an example and deterrent to similarly minded morons everywhere. Absolute f*cking imbeciles of the highest order.

Vinny Murphy former Dublin player said something similar this morning

@Vinniedub14

Replying to @Healyhack
@KCsixtyseven Strawberry and snowflake generation need to ripen up. PTSD from being dropped? What's the world coming to?

Gives them a chance to agree costs and avoid another hearing.

If the dad ponies up a few grand between now and the next day, it could be the end of the matter.
