Well that has stirred things up.   I made the original post with no comment at all for a reason. To give people the chance to comment on the articles without any colouring opinion from me as the poster.

For what it is worth, I agree with all the comments about gutter press ....... but the facts are out there in the public domain. They are not allegations, they are facts to which Jolley admitted and was sentenced. Had the case been in England it would definitely have been more noticed as other similar ones have been.

Obviously there is the question of his openness or otherwise about his conviction. Certainly we did not know about it did we? Did the club? What would Fishy posters have said if this had been published during the selection and interview time? Has it had an influence on his career decisions?

A second thing is about the timing. This was bound to come out sooner rather than later in one rag or another so it is surely better that it happened now than in the last week/fortnight of the season.

Incidentally, what would we have said if it was at another club? We had plenty to say about our friend from Boston, Rotherham, Leeds .... and his dodgy dealings, and we have had threads about players from other clubs caught in compromising situations.

It might be in the past, it might not matter to us, we might think this is completely irrelevant to his job at GTFC but whatever our opinions we cannot just stick our heads in the sand and pretend it never happened at all.




You post as if this is the first time any of us had read anything about the case?

This has been 'discussed' in depth across numberous social media outlets around the time of his appointment ( some before the appointment was made public). I, and many others had discussed the case some time before your link to the Daily Mail that's for sure

I for one am 100% certain the club were fully aware of this historic case at the time of appointment and probably at the initial interview .

Move on, nothing to see here

Where have you been RRFC? The case was discussed at length on here well before he was appointed!

Except it isn't factual. The girl being found distressed was an allegation and as far as it reads, an unfounded one. The 'Vile Beast' is a gutter-worthy allegation, again not factual. And no mention of the violent attack on the accused, by the paper or yourself.
I don't know where you're going with this post, either the original or the follow but it smacks of $hit stirring imo.

Poor stuff, would be great to concentrate on the football if possible.

Quoted from mariner91
Could he sue these papers? They've been very selective with which facts to disclose and which ones not to, leaving out some important details such as the girls being in a nightclub and saying they were 19.


From a professional point of view, that's a difficult question to answer and I don't think there would be any guarantee of success in the courts. If I were advising Jolley, I would suggest making a complaint to IPSO, the newspaper regulator, rather than going down the legal route. I think that, regardless of any public interest defence the publications concerned may try to deploy, there is a clear case for a breach of Clause 1 of the Editors' Code of Practice relating to misrepresentation. Given the volume of, frankly, time-wasting complaints that I have seen referred to IPSO, this is a matter that should go to them.

Well one place I have not been is on twitter or social media because I’m not signed up, and regrettably I must have missed the discussion at length you refer to. My apologies for that, today is the first I have seen of it. A link would have helped.



Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

I’m sure I heard some PV fans chanting about Jolley - did anyone else hear it?


No, but I heard J.J, Hooper getting plenty of shitt whilst warming up they really laid into him but to be fair J.J. stayed down that end and kept smiling at them lol.

"excrement for Grimsby and excrement for Vale..."

Aimed at Hooper and Kelly. Very hard to argue with.

The staggering hypocrisy of that paper is unbelievable. On the same page, there are pictures of young girls with their baps hanging out of skimpy dresses.


Really, what page are they on
