"stupid polynesian c***"

Started by: wigvet (3463)

Could this alleged racist remark in last nights game against Hull signal the end of Tony Clubb's career at Wigan?

Seems somewhat ironic that they ‘took the knee’ before the game to demonstrate their opposition to racism

So what is the 'offence' as in if one rugby player calls another rugby player a very rude word, is that the end of his playing career, or is it OK to do that as long as you don't mention the 'ethnicity' or 'colour' of the player .....

I get confused with all this racism malarkey. Having worked in many, many places I have been called a Wigan Tw** etc. thousands of times but not for one minute did I consider it racist. I worked in Belfast for two years and my nationality and parentage were often mentioned but again I never considered it racist.

I suppose it was inevitable, in the world at present, that Clubb would be charged so that the RL can be shown to be playing their part / suckholing up to all this BLM movement. No doubt he will be thrown to the lions.

Jarvo :: You are no better than tony clubb for your own comment's ,
(( eat him alive )) (( send him to the dardanelles)) Just what are you going on about? There are thousands on this site call you much worse why then don't you practice what you preach ?? All this is down to this inane BLM campaign , i notice there are student halls at a Liverpool UNI named after late pm William Gladstone he allegedly had links with slavery so guess what ? they are going to change the name after all these years ( pathetic ) comes to mind , so then why don't we engage somebody to check all our history to see who did what ,where and when and if it upsets BLM change everything the world's gone loopy ..G.B.

It's very sad that a young man's career should be blighted by something said in the heat of the moment. Surely an apology after the game would have sorted it? But no, the usual woke folk jump on the race bandwagon yet again and look down from their virtue-signalling soapboxes and demand metaphorical blood. Wokeism is a detestable feature of today's society: when we have a headteacher in Birmingham banning her staff from addressing the children as "boys and girls" I wonder what the blazes this world is coming to. Golden Bear points out the nonsense of Liverpool Uni getting rid of Gladstone's name. These people (the ones that can read, that is) are scouring their history books for the slightest suggestion of slavery and then pointing their venomous fingers and demanding 'justice'. Until society as a whole rejects all this woke nonsense and grows up, letting boys be boys and girls be girls and not bowing the knee to the ones who tell us there are a hundred genders, then we'll go on reading about it, and young men like Tony Clubb will find themselves tarred with a racist brush for something said on the spur of the moment.

sentence passed:
banned for eights games and £500 fine

"This was serious misconduct," said Guy Kearl QC, who chaired the tribunal.

"We have considered the evidence of both players and the circumstances surrounding the allegation and find that we are reasonably satisfied, taking into account the seriousness of the charge, that the words were said, albeit in the heat of the moment, but nevertheless were said."

Clubb, who was suspended by Wigan on Friday after they started their own investigation, has also been fined £500.

In handing down the decision on Tuesday, Kearl said Clubb "brought the game into disrepute" but added that the tribunal "do not find that he is a racist" after taking into account character references presented by the club.

"On this occasion he used unacceptable language in the heat of the moment," Kearl added.

"We have therefore reduced the penalty to take account of his character and good disciplinary record to a suspension for eight matches and a £500 fine."

He should have gone for good.

He'll be back, just in time for the pathetic playoff sequence later in the summer. Rugby league is full of ex-schoolboy thugs throwing their weight about and mouthing off.

The whole organisation is an utter shambles.

I see Jim Beglin is the latest in the firing line. Had to issue a public apology because when De Maria was sent off he mentioned his " Latino temperament" which apparently is racial profiling. They won't be content until every commentator is non white and a member of the LGBT community.

They have let him off, and not taken any action against him

"The Wigan Club confirm, therefore, that Tony will be fined a further two weeks wages which will be put towards a dedicated education and diversity training programme through the Club’s Education and Community departments specifically targeted against abuse based on ethnicity"


He is back in training now

I live almost directly across the Humber from hully gully and have pals who live in the city mainly on the east side .
They are H K R fans who would love Wigan to win in the forthcoming match
Word on the street is that Hull are intent on winding Wigan up hoping to have a payer sent off .Or two.

Rugby league is a shambles, nothing more nothing less.

A game that has been dying slowly over the decades. Nothing has brought it back, and nothing ever will. The idiots that run it are very similar to the shallow characters that follow it.

Empty stadiums with nothing to play for. Only the countless battles on the pitch keep the locals glowing...

Without the battlin' it would sink without trace. Plug hole job.
