Sophie Jones case

Recommended Posts

Saw her play several times when she was at Club before Blades were given the franchise / leapfrog and she moved clubs.

Surprised , sad and very disappointed. However, why would Renee Hector say this if untrue? And, if it`s false, surely SUWFC would stand by her?

 

Well, the FA seem determined that the WSL etc mirror the men`s game....

There does seem to be a presumption of guilt in these situations these days. Thats assuming she hasn't admitted it within the confines of the club

 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?

You used to visit Bramall Lane and Hillsborough and chose Wednesday ! What's wrong with you  ?   😊

 I also used to visit Milmoor, Belle Vue and Saltergate, but still chose Wednesday, hard as that may be to believe. Lol

 I thought you would bring up Oakwell, but although I have been there, it was no more than twice, so I couldn't , in all honesty, say I was a regular there. One of the games, I was only there because a friend from Hoyland wanted me to go and join him at the Turf(pub) that particular Saturday night, so went to the match, had tea at his house and on to a night out at the pub. Oh yeah, we got a good hiding at the end of the pub session, but that's for another thread. LOL.

      Cheers.

 This is it now in governing bodies of sports. Once an accusation is made the player is blemished in the eyes of the powers that be, irrespective of what a court of law says. I follow baseball and we had a player who was suspended without pay for 80 games(162games in a full season) This case fell into the category of the domestic violence protocol. The suspension was almost immediate after the arrest. It did not go to court until well after the suspension was served, where he was found not guilty and the girlfriend was made to look vindictive, My team, meantime, panicked before the trial and traded him and in essence, we lost one of our best players because of a storm in a teacup.

  I am, by no means, against discipline for domestic violence or racism , but I would like to be sure that the player is actually guilty before punishment is meted out.
