Readers: Thaiday critics need sense of humour
MAROONS player Sam Thaiday was in hot water for comments he made after a hard-fought Origin clash.
Thaiday described his side’s win as: “Like losing your virginity - it wasn’t nice but we got the job done”.
Social media went into overdrive last night as many people expressed their outrage at Sam Thaiday’s words to Channel Nine’s Brad Fittler after Queensland’s 6-4 victory.
QT readers, on the other hand, thought the rugby league legend’s comments were all in good fun and said people should learn how to “lighten up”.
EVERYONE loses their virginity, most of the people outraged probably have kids.
Get over it, everyone is an over-sensitive wuss nowadays.
DIDN’T swear, use inappropriate language and it was an absolutely spot on metaphor for that game.
It's not like he humped a dog or anything.
HARMLESS joke. C'mon people need to calm down.
Especially those NSW people who are divided by this.
HIS comment is an issue yet the telecast week after week clearly shows player shouting the ‘F’ word and that's ok.

ON PLEASE stop being so sensitive about things.
THOUGHT it was funny.
Lighten up people.
HE HAS used that line before and no one cared.
HAVE a sense of humour and get over it
Do you think Thaiday’s comments were a harmless joke or did he go too far?
