My apologies for rising to the bait last night, but I was absolutely furious with the "he's not been found guilty yet" message. Sorry for lowering the tone.

I missed this original exchange and at the risk of reopening a heated debate I just want to say I absolutely 100% agree with the comments of UKpunk and Richard Rundle.

Furthermore I would have been and still am "absolutely furious" at the attitude of Dovecote. I give him credit for apologising at presumably the first possible opportunity but he still seems to have partly missed the point. Innocent until proven guilty is the foundation stone of our legal system and all our freedoms. For me this is absolute no matter how clearly someone is guilty because to undermine this is the thin end of the wedge. Noone suggested any less punishment for the perpetrator - only that we make sure he is found guilty first.

Good grief, another one!

In this case it's quite simple:

He. Admitted. His. Guilt.

Ergo he's guilty.

And no matter how much hand-wringing you do, that's the fact. I'm sure you wouldn't be quite so defensive of his so-called rights if this vicious assault had happened to you or to someone close to you.

Are you telling me that his club is wrong to suspend him, because he hasn't been "found guilty" yet?

P.S. my apology was for using a swear word that has since been edited out by TK.
