The hound was pointing out . Good or bad. Ppl are killers
Eddard's nobility was misguided, and his dogmatic adherence to rules plunged Westeros into chaos, and he also wouldn't acknowledge his bastard son. Stannis is quite ruthless. And they're both killers.<br />
Some characters are "better" than others, but they've all got big gray areas.
Eddard was a good man, Stannis on the other hand... Well, you'll see. :)
