Thread: Peter Wright

  1. #1

    Peter Wright

    Why does a man who is born in England to English parents and lives in England choose to represent Scotland? I've no axe to grind with the Scots, and I bet they would feel the same way if it was the other way round. Hopefully the Scots will see through this fake Scotsman and give him no support, and I hope he get's ripped by the crowd in every tournament he plays.

    Haha!!

    Come on! There has to be a reason he does this?

    No big deal. He's a nice enough fella as well.

    He has got Scottish ancestry through grandparents (??) and with the success of the World Cup then why not use it to your advantage?
    My mate Prakash Jiwa has registered himself as Indian despite being in England but if it gets him some tv air time then fair play to him

    I hate it when the likes of Gary Anderson get booed when they play in England, but I hope this plastic jock gets slaughtered from now on. I've never seen those flights of his with the Scottish flag on before either, maybe he only has the bottle to use them when he's not in England?

    He is a fake Scotsman. If someone who was born in Scotland, to Scottish parents and lived in Scotland, decided to represent England, the Scots would slaughter him, and rightly so!

    Harry does seem to have to some unfounded issues with players

    OMG, don't try play the race card on me. It's got nothing to do with race or racism, it is a case of showing loyalty to your country.

    There was a reason that escapes me for now
    But why shouldn't he play for whatever country he's eligible for
    Nicholson plays for Australia

    Plastic and fake in my opinion is a bit harsh!!
    The fella played some sensational darts against insurmountable odds
    before I saw him this week, I wasn't too fond of him either, but I'd have to admit despite his horrible hair style gimmick I was very impressed with his boardcraft.

    Bringing in someones nationality into dispute is asking for trouble

    And other sportsmen have used it to maximise their earning potential - Rusedski.Lennox Lewis, Zola Budd etc,etc...and numerous "english" cricketers

    I don't like it, and I hope he get's the support from the English public that he deserves.
