REPLIES TO READERS’ COMMENTS Oh please Samkelo, so you think the [alleged] Dros rapist is being unfairly treated (“Restaurant rape case”, November 6)? Well, tell that to the little girl whose life was shattered by the [alleged] rapist. He should be locked up and the key thrown very far away.
KAT On the subject of referees and with regard to chirps from Gordon Upton and Louis van Wyk (“Referees concern”, November 7), may I humbly highlight the following. In 1974 the British Lions toured this country and massacred all they came against, winning all their games bar the final Test, which they “drew” 13 all. All matches were refereed by SA officials.
In this final test Fergus Slattery scored a legitimate try in front of SA referee Max Baise and the SA linesman. The try was overruled and the Test was drawn, thus denying the British Lions a historical clean sweep. The mighty Gareth Edwards in a interview with BBC recently said it was a shocker that the try was not awarded.
As Rob mentioned in his chirp (“Boks go down to England”, November 6), we are becoming a bunch of crybabies.
BOERSEUN Leon van der Mescht (“Alarmed at views in dagga letter”, November 7), only dope heads would agree and choose your ignorance. Here we are trying to teach the youth to make better choices. NAAZ
