Re, the line
I am going to try and make a point that is completely beyond my language skills.
Warner is full of shit and he knows it.
So, let's assume De Kock said "hey mate your wife is a slag". Nobody has actually quoted what was said, but the rumours/conjecture suggests it it's something close.
How should you react when someone calls your wife a slag? Well that depends...
Is he attacking the person I am married to or my wife? And yes there is a difference.
A mate that calls your wife a slag is insulting her. When you lash out you are protecting her honour (that might be wrong or right in its own right).
When a guy you barely know says you are married to a slag, he is insulting you. When you explode you are defending your own honour.
So which one happened here? I doubt De Kock knows or cares to know Candice Warner. He, allegedly, said something that touched a nerve with the little shit gibbon. I am sure Warner thinks he was being chivalrous, I think he was being a dick who can dish it out, but doesn't like to get it back. Also think deep down he and his team mates know that he was protecting his own little shit gibbon ego, not the honour of his partner.
