Quoted from MeanwoodMariner
I'm pleased a club has had the guts to sign him. Our court system convicted him and gave him a punishment they considered befitting to that crime. The mass mob mentality to punish beyond that has been pretty unpleasant.

I agree, however I also think it is for the best that Sheff United did not re-sign him. Although he has served his custodial time and has every right to work and rehabilitation (of course he is still on license), I think his former employer re-signing him would have been a bit off. After all, he was convicted whilst representing their club and I whilst I strongly support his right to return to work as everyone deserves the chance to be continue their lives after having served their time, it would have seemed right if his former club had accepted him with open arms IMO. That he had to seek another employer seems reasonable to me, and I think many professions would act in a similar fashion to this, regardless of media pressure.
