    Default Tom Humphries

    Shocked to read this morning about Tom Humphries relationship with a 14 year old girl.

    For those who don't know him, he's a highly respected sports journalist with the Irish times newspaper.

    Apparently he has attempted suicide since being found out by his daughter.

    I know none of us are nominees for morally upstanding citizen of the year, but this is just incomprehensible to me.

    I have sympathy for everyone affected by this and even to a lesser degree, Humphries himself who is clearly a very sick man.

    He's the journo that scooped the Roy Keane, Saipan, drama back in 2002.
    How the mighty have fallen. Shame on him.

    And what about the poor 14 year old girl. How will she cope?

    Don't get me wrong. My primary sympathies go to her, her family, and his family and the sports club he was involved with also.

    And all victims of abuse who try to forget and even try to believe that these days are behind us in Ireland.

    Clearly not. It's hinted at in the article that the GAA are aware of problems in the clubs now also.

    Being as how I was a pro-Mick supporter during the Saipan incident I can't help but feel some schadenfreude but in all fairness this is an absolutely desperate situation. His wife and children have had their world ripped to pieces.

    Its difficult to tell, due to typical Sunday World gutter journalism what is actual fact here but it does sound as if he has behaved horrifically inappropriately.

    He needs to man up now and concentrate on limiting as much damage as possible to his family (as impossible as that may seem at this point).
    Bada Bing!!!
