Quoted from 75
The 'evidence' against Evans was an utter joke. In fact, the evidence against him was exactly the same as that against our former centre back Clayton Macdonald. For one to be found innocent, the other guilty is ridiculous. The alleged victim was on twitter shortly after the incident claiming she was 'going to win big', she had also cried wolf before. Tons of inconsistencies, IMO it should never have gone to trial, never mind led to a conviction.

I'd welcome his signing but he's well out of our league I'm afraid.


That's just not true. The jury concluded the woman in question consented to sex with Mcdonald but not with Evans who turned up and joined in - the jury decided without any consent. Lots of people seem to have bought into the chedevans.com stuff without actually bothering to check the facts. I'm also unsure why people who've read bits in the media think they're so much better placed to judge his guilt or innocence than a jury which sat through weeks of evidence.

Re him signing I think it's a very complicated subject. I think he should be allowed to resume his career now he's served his time but I personally wouldn't want Town to sign him.

I think the problems Sheffield United are experiencing means it would be a major issue.

Clubs are reliant upon income from sponsors. In our case if say, Youngs didnt want their product associated with a club who had signed a convicted rapist and withdrew their sponsorship that would be a big and avoidable loss.

Even if Youngs themselves didnt have concerns the people who buy their products may do. They stop buying and Youngs have to act.

Whatever the rights of wrong of the case the above makes it a no go for me

I thought that was a reasonable statement,

Some people have values and some do not,

I do not think this young lady was an innocent in this,

On the other hand Evans has shown what type of man he is,

Point of Law,

If the lady involved was too drunk to consent,

Then surely she was too drunk to say no,

Evans took advantage of that but does that make him a rapist,

The law says yes,

BUT

How come a few minutes earlier she was deemed to be sober enough to say yes to Clayton,

This is certainly not an open and shut case.

My final word on the subject is why even if Evans is guilty why can he not go back to work like any other ex convict.

Know it reflects itself on the man as well(deleted the initial post for which I was to judgmental and harsh on) .But seriously in the line of work Iam in you see it all all the time and the distress it causes on the kids.Unwanted kids who suffer as a result of one night stands .

If she was too drunk to speak and Evans took advantage of her then you don't think that constitutes rape? Like you say, the law does.

If you advocate the 'served his time' argument then presumably you'd feel the same if we signed a released paedophile?

That's a pretty massive generalisation though Rick isn't it?

Is his case any worse than that of Lee Hughes, who got a league club after being released. A life was lost due to his stupidity.
