Just came on to see if there was a thread already about this but can't see one.

The rapist Ched Evans will be playing this weekend. I am utterly disgusted - what more can be done?

If they don't listen/agree to the moral arguments, the only thing they would listen to as a business are financial implications so loosing sponsors/fans boycotting.

I'll be there too. I'm full of pregnant rage. I'm so disgusted.

If they gave two shits they wouldn't have taken him on in the first place.

A petition will do nothing.

I think they are announcing it now as the Paris situation will deflect attn away, and they probably think people will just shut up about it now.

I for one won't be - and I hope sports direct pulls their sponsorship and some of the other players speak out.i pretty sure my DH wouldn't want to work with a rapist
