Opinion: Sunday Eoin on Twitter has gone for "Andy Burnham manages to fight a leadership campaign last summer without abusing Corbyn or his supporters. Why can't Owen Smith so the same?" and he has nailed it once again.
This blogger attended an Andy Burnham event in Hull in the summer of 2015 and an Owen Smith one in 2016.
They were both held at the same venue and both organised at least in part by East Hull Labour MP Karl Turner.
In 2015 former deputy Prime Minister and local MP John Prescott played host. He added some humour to the event and veteran politics at one point saying he would have preferred the meeting included others standing for election and he mentioned Jeremy Corbyn in particular.
That mention was as a positive and it was the only time the other leadership hopefuls were "in the room."
The Owen Smith event was a very different affair.
For one thing Alan Johnson West Hull MP attended but Prescott did not. In 2015 Mr Johnson threw his political support behind Yvette Cooper although his CLP failed to agree on a nomination.
There were also less people at the Smith event.
The question and answer session was similar to last year but those who asked some questions were labelled, probably correctly, Corbynistas. One man who seemed to be a Corbyn supporter wanted to ask in depth questions about the NHS but was told by some including Mr Johnson to sit down.
To be fair time was limited and the event did overrun as Mr Smith was late.
Last year I was a novice at events.
I was inspired by Mr Burnham who seemed the best candidate for the job of party leader. For me Jeremy Corbyn was too old and I say that as one of his contemporaries.
So I voted Burnham last year but accepted the democratic result and have supported Mr Corbyn who has in my eyes proved himself more than worthy over and over again.
I also attended a Corbyn rally in Hull this summer and was more than impressed; finding the right word is not easy.
The rally was fun, informative, entertaining, inspiring and more. And challenger Owen Smith was not "in the room."
Corbyn has held many of his rallies outdoors to keep costs down and to accommodate the huge number of people attending.
The Owen Smith event was ticketed. In order to attend you had to apply online giving an email address.
But it did not take long for Corbyn to be "in the room" thanks to Mr Smith.
One giggle for Smith supporters was a dig at Jeremy commenting he was "perhaps making jam" when he was not available.
And sadly that was not the only dig.
If Mr Corbyn wins the leadership election, and I seriously hope he does, he will have done so by fair means.
If Mr Smith wins will he have been helped along by an unfair and biased purge of Labour Party members and attacking Mr Corbyn time and time again?
