Sophie Jones case

Recommended Posts

Sheffield United womens player Sophie Jones maintains her innocence, after being found guilty of racism and handed a five match ban.

Several of my family members were at the match and none of them witnessed any instance of such behaviour. 

 

A BBC report mentions that a more detailed report will be published.  Does anyone know if this will be available to view online, and where it might be found? 

 

Thank you in advance.

She's been found guilty and the club have parted company with her. There is no room for racism within the sport and anyone found guilty of it aren't welcome at our club.

 

Let's see if Sheffield Wednesday follow the same values when Fernando Forestieri attends court in Mansfield on Thursday (should he be found guilty of any charges in a similar respect).

Clean up your own backyard and stop tit for tatting. I am sure Wednesday will clean up theirs if warranted.

Totally agree but I would still like to see the full report. 

 

Are you party to information that I am not?  Were you at the hearing?

Just reporting on it as far as I can see.

Judge for yourself.

Yes, that's correct.   

 

Apologies, it was most certainly my use of the word 'report' twice that caused confusion.

How is it tit for tat?  I have a no-nonsense stance towards racism! Same as last nights England game! Disgusted and I expect the book to be thrown at Macedonia until they lose the 1960's arrogant, disgusting mentality. 

 

Whether it be United, Wednesday or a Sunday League team down the park. Any player found to be racist in any way, shape or form needs removing from the sport!

I too hate all forms of racism, but my response to your post was brought about by the fact that the moment you finished talking about your lady footballer's problem you just had to bring the other Sheffield club into the post. Why was that? You could have left it where it was.There was no reason to bring Wednesday into the coversation, that was the tit for tat that I meant.

He was accused of like for like offences, regarless of who he plays for. The fact that he plays for a Sheffield club makes it relavant to this post and relative to this board. 

 

If it was another blade of course you wpuld have no real issue I guess, but perhaps you see it as tit for tat bwcause it is one of yours?

 

Regardless it is relavant and should he be found of anything similar.....then I expect the same punishment.

 True Wednesday are my number one club and have been since I was a boy, which is a long time ago ,but I have never been anti-United. In the 60s I used to go and see all the local clubs and I cheered them on, as I couldn't afford to follow Wednesday away from home all the time. My point was and still is, that there was no reason to bring the Owls into the issue at hand, it was totally irrelevant. I have no idea what charges Forestieri faces other than he was fighting, as I live abroad, and don't keep up on everything. I am sure the Wednesday board will act accordingly, after all the club is not exactly new to controversy over their players' behaviour, are they?

Like I said bud it isn't anti-wednesday, it's anti racism..... If FF was a blade, I would expect the same result.

No you wouldn't , If Oliver Norwood was accused of the same thing there is no way on this earth you would ask for him to be thrown out ……….. another Wednesday bashing episode
