    Is there something wrong with Rugby Culture ? Look how world star Falou views the LGBT community could you imagine Messi tweeting views like this? The rapes
    allegations against Paddy Jackson, Stuart Olding and how Irish Captain Best Supported the two alleged Rapists. The Gang rape allegations against New Zealander Rory Grice, Loick Jammes from France and Ireland's Denis Coulson. Mils Muliaina allegations of sexual assault after a Connacht pro12 game. Sevu Reeces domestic abuse of his partner. The racist abuse Zebo got playing against ulster in Belfast. Surly there is a privileged Culture in Rugby?

    One guy tweets anti gay comments and the whole of rugby gets tarred?

    And soccer has had its fair share of rape allegations? Ever hear of a guy called Ronaldo?

    No soccer player gets racial abuse from the stands? Catch yourself on. Soccer is rife with it. Ask Danny Rose or Raheem Sterling.

    The 2 ulster guys were found not guilty by a jury. So the allegations have been decided as untrue.

    Also allegations aren't the same as guilt

    No they weren’t, Not guilty doesn’t mean innocent! It means that there was a lack of evidence to support the claims, But it doesn’t mean they were untrue.

    Sorry you lost me on that one.

    Every section of society, be it doctors, sportsmen, authors, builders will have a certain amount of bad people among them. It's human nature.

    There are criminals and assh0les in Rugby, same as there is in football, teachers, solicitors, truck drivers etc.

    Get the point? Not all rugby players are homophobes or alleged rapists.

    Glad you aren't a judge!

    Lmao footballers are on a different stratosphere to rugby players in terms of status and privledge. A middling handsome footballer has more status than the top rugby guy. Rugby players are probably way more regular than footballers.

    But that’s the system we work with, yes? Not perfect of course but as the saying goes innocent until proven guilty. So they were innocent.

    The what’s app group certainly showed that the guys were a pile of ****. But tbh that could be true of most people’s messages if they were examined in detail. Especially a group of young males.
