Default why the hate on Billy Nelson?

I haven't been posting much on here over the past few months but have been tuning in to read some comments, now this isn't me sticking up for my countryman but I'm noticing a lot of hate heading Billy Nelson's way which I think is way over the top and it seems to have peaked with all this talk of a supposed fight with Ricky Burns & Kevin Mitchell.

In my opinion Billy gets way, way too much hate on here, some of it over the top.

Nelson has achieved a great deal in 4 years since he has been coaching (and has not long turned his attention to coaching full time), more so than any other Scottish coach (learning his trade under Peter Harrison).

He has brought Ricky Burns from failed domestic level fighter to a two-weight world champion something that no other Scottish coach has been able to achieve.

Paul Weir (who won world titles at minimumweight & light fly) was trained by Peter Harrison for the first title and George Bordon for the 2nd title.

John Simpson produced the performance of a life time against Martin Lindsay when he won the Lonsdale title for keeps, that truly was a great performance and I can remember people saying that the fight was a late shout for domestic fight of the year.

I've seen a few of Billy's fighters cop some amount of shit on here also (most notable being Ricky Burns). What do you expect him to do when he reads diatribes on here? Of course he is going to come on and back his fighters no matter what, am sure other trainers would do likewise.

He defends his fighters to the hilt and sometimes that doesn't go down well; some can slag him, some can slag his fighters but there is absolutely no doubt about it that he is Scotland's best coach.

It's the old star-****ing issue, I think. Same as Frankie Gavin gets pissed on all the time, and the window-lickers chased away Bunce too. Billy walks into it a little too much, but he's achieved more in the last two years than many of the forumites.

As I say mate he is sticking up for his fighters, I don't think he walks into it, perhaps just pissed off at some peoples attitude towards him and his fighters.

Didn't Joe Gallagher stop posting here after similar abuse?

Billy thrives on thinking the whole Forum is anti-Scottish.

That's Dunky, although it's easy to mistake the two.

Billys orite man, gives as much as he gets....Fair play to him, I would do the same....

Jealous cunts man.

And the wankers who gave Buncey grief and made him **** off these forums are nout but wankers....Spoke to Buncey not so long ago and told him to get his arse back on here, he said its nothing personal, its never gonna happen.

Noticed Frankie Gavin and Curtis Woodhouse dont seem to post here any more also.....Or maybe ive just missed them posting.

They still do, but not as much. The loss of Bunce has been massive.

Ricky Burns would beat Pacman in his eyes.

He is pretty deluded to a degree.

you're right mate I haven't seen Gavin or Woodhouse on here.

I remember Woodhouse posting on here about sparring Ricky Burns and some **** smoker comes back with "no offence mate but you are Curtis Woodhouse!"

I mean what the **** is that all about?!

The guy gives up a cushy life as a footballer to take up the hardest sport in the world.

Basically picking on him for doing what anyone would do. When you work for someone, you don't slag them off. You never see the Sky pundits slagging off the promoter or the channel.

There are just some sad, pathetic little people on this forum.
