REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS ON RUGBY
"TIME for change", you are an over-conservative Mother Grundy bore.The young women are attractive and are talented dancers enjoying a great game of rugby at a great stadium. Stay home and watch the gospel channel.
OH, JUST get over yourself! If you don't want to see dancing cheerleaders then stay home and read your Bible!
I AGREE regarding the nauseating smut at rugby matches. Totally objectifying women. No wonder we are the rape capital of the world. Half-naked women at rugby matches add no value except to the mentally deficient. Men should respect, not abuse women.
DONOVAN May says "excellent leadership shown by Luke" – where, from the sidelines?
WELL DONE TO SOUTHERN KINGS!
I HOPE you all noticed that it did not take long to get the injury-prone captain off the field. Well done to the rest of the team.
THE Kings must make sure Sergeal Petersen has a good mentor.
NEED CONTACT DETAILS FOR BURSARY

MILLIONS WASTED ON BUS SERVICE
MILLIONS wasted, but don't worry. We have got ratepayers cha-cha-ing and what do you know? Property valuations just got rolled out and really, some houses are over-valued. Why?
IPTS buses must be used to transport school children, especially in Motherwell NU29.
IPTS: what's the bet it will all be swept under the carpet again?

OSCAR PISTORIUS CASE
THE "experts" quoted in The Herald yesterday have clearly never heard of putative self defence. Stop guessing facts and quoting experts equally ignorant of the facts. There are only two possible outcomes: 1 Oscar Pistorius's version is reasonably possibly true and he is acquitted or convicted of a lesser offence or 2 His version is rejected, he is convicted of murder and is sentenced to between 15 years and life.
FALLEN hero: it's one thing to make a mistake, quite another to shoot four shots through a closed door when you don't know what's behind it.
JENNI, you say if you see an intruder in your home you will use whatever you can to protect yourself and you hope you will still be the one breathing. Oscar Pistorius did not actually see an intruder in his house! I suggest that you familiarise yourself with the law and then plan your defence accordingly. You won't want to be found guilty of a crime for killing another human being. You might find yourself still breathing, but behind bars!
TO CAT007, unless Pistorius has "bionic" eyes as well, how is he to see through a closed toilet door as to where Reeva Steenkamp's head was? Your statement is ludicrous and laughable! Pistorius has got serious legal problems and will have the fight of all fights to try to justify his actions. My condolences to the Steenkamps. I have no sympathy for Pistorius whatsoever.
GORDON Upton, will a "sorry" bring Reeva back? Will a "sorry" heal her parents' broken hearts? No, it won't! I think Pistorius is the last person they want to hear from now! Have you ever apologised to all the people you've done wrong to? No!
IF OSCAR had a private service for Reeva Steenkamp, why has it been splashed all over the papers? He obviously did not even try very hard to hide the fact – just a thought.
OSCAR wants us to believe Reeva sat quietly in the toilet while he shot her four times. She would have been screaming at the first shot. He knew it was her so why did he fire three more shots? He meant to kill her. I bet he will walk away free. OJ did. This is the ultimate test of our justice system – him and Fred Gordon.
GORDON IN COURT
IS THAT an Air Force haircut that Frederick Gordon has?
FREDERICK Gordon, you are nothing more than pathetic and a low life. Do you really think anyone can believe you and your story? You need to spend the rest of your miserable life in jail.

PRONOUNCE NAME PROPERLY
PLEASE stop mispronouncing St Albans! It is Awlbans not as in Algoa.
REPLIES TO COMMENTS ON OTHER SUBJECTS
REGARDING the armco in Avondale/Kabega roads, thank you Tracey! There's a blind spot, very dangerous. I've nearly been killed a few times.
MZWANDILE Pepe Nkomombini, you talk about the quota systems in the Proteas team, but what about the quota system in our national soccer team?
NKOMOMBINI: "Need black stars in Proteas team" – well sir, what about there being no white stars in the Bafana Bafana team?
THANK YOU FOR HELP
A BIG thank you to the young man who helped me get back in my car after I slipped on my already injured knee.You were an angel sent from God! Bless you.
SURELY JUB JUB WILL BE RELEASED
IF Sifiso Zulu only served nine months in jail instead of three years, then surely Jub Jub can also come out.
