Justice for Joe

Post by Sefton »

After the 6N making a right bollocks of this I’m sure we can all agree that justice has been served and let this go.
England prop Joe Marler's 10-week ban for grabbing Alun Wyn Jones' genitals will end without him missing a match because of the coronavirus lockdown.

Marler was suspended on 12 March for grabbing the Wales captain's genitals during England's Six Nations win.

Each week of a ban should correspond to a match but every fixture Marler could have played in has been postponed.

Six Nations has decided all bans should apply immediately after hearings and Marler's will end as planned on 7 June.

The Premiership will not resume before 27 June at the earliest so Harlequins player Marler will serve his entire ban while on lockdown.

While he's a good prop, I don't think he'd be right for the Lion's tour.

He’s a perfect retort for the type of dishonest, underhand and cowardly cheating our honest yeoman will face.

In penance for his sins, he shall be called Joe Mauler.

He should miss games when they are eventually played. The ban should be suspended until that time and then be applied.

You can't change the rules after the fact.

He'll forever be known as the cock-fondler. That ought to be penance enough.

It’s pretty much all he’ll be known for.

The pretence of him being a serious international-quality professional appears to have evaporated in the effort to be a ‘character’.

Wasn’t he following orders from Eddie?

I agree, too many players have avoided any real penalty by serving time, not matches.

In normal circumstances I agree completely but in these extraordinary times I say let bygones be bygones. Let the man play and earn his living. It was a crude, tasteless but ultimately harmless act.

It's silly to have time based penalties rather than games played. Not that anything should be changed just for the Cock Fiddler.

Look at what happened to John Hopoate. Poke a man in the eye you get a sentence, poke a man up in the arse and you get the death penalty.

Marler stroked one penis. How many assholes did Hopoate violate? The recidivist offender got what he deserved.

I'm sure AWJ's penis is just the tip of the iceberg.

Also, Hopoate played a couple of seasons after he served his suspension so he hardly got the death penalty. His career was ended when he injured someone with a flying shoulder to the head, not cause of his bum poking.

No, it still matters for judging severity that the victim gives evidence.

He took up a boxing career didn't he. You'd want to specify thumbless gloves if you were fighting the pervy plum.
