I don't particularly like HD or consider him a good player but do think the abuse he gets because of one ill-informed comment is a bit OTT considering a certain Spaniard who followed him having pledged never to play for another Championship team only to disappear at the first whiff of cash leaving behind a gushing love letter penned by his management agency is still considered a hero (and rightly so).

I seem to recall Dean scoring a pretty important goal in that game when the Jota legend was born, after all. Plus, he said some nice things about us after the game at GP last season.
I'm not into HD bashing at all, but that important goal he scored was compensation for the cock up he made for the Fulham goal.

Until last season he was the only Bee ever to score in a play off final.

He had a habit of deliberately allowing some long high balls to go over his head. In one early season game (can’t remember which one), it lead to us conceding an early goal.

Also MC didn't make any public faux pas' in what he said. Didn't upset anyone by taking that course.
This is the same Martin Grainger that gave Brentford fans the w***er sign after a 2-0 defeat at Rotherham. Yes, it was 25 years ago and no, I haven’t forgotten.

I think calling it "abuse" is a bit OTT personally.

He's a pantomime villain and cops a bit of deserved stick, it's not like anyone is threatening his life.
