    I haven't seen that satisfactorily explained anywhere - on the face of it the jury's verdict is perverse, a ground of appeal in itself, so there must be something more to it, and something that those in Mr Evans camp are not falling over themselves to point out

    Yeah, the fact that no attempt was made (so far as I could see anyway) at an appeal is probably pretty telling.

    I wondered briefly if it might have something to do with exactly where the forensic material was located .................................................. ...................

    For me the fact McDonald was found not guilty weighs against Evans.

    But as Pothas said, rape or not what he did was despicable anyway.

    It's the lack of remorse I find galling.

    As Pothas & Coz have said, even if the conviction is overturned his actions are those of a scumbag sexual predator.

    Can't believe his missus has stood by him; best case scenario is he cheated on her with a random drunken lass his mate had pulled.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "this was Argentinaís heaviest defeat in the group stage of a World Cup since losing 6-1 to Czechoslovakia in 1958. It is also the first time they have failed to win either of their opening two matches at a World Cup for 44 years. Sampaoliís players, in other words, were creating history here" - The Guardian's Stuart James on Croatia's 3-0 dicking of the South Americans

    Yep even if he doesn't think it was rape he should still accept he took advantage and show remorse on that basis

    The guy is obviously a low-life

    Only quote I have read of his was something like "Sorry I cheated on my bird but the other one was definitely up for it"

    I don't think that he should be banned (served his time, et) but I wouldn't want him at my club

    Yeah could you all please take the blurred lines stuff elsewhere? It's not really relevant to the topic and the court has made a decision in the particular case, having actually heard some evidence and ****.

    Bringing us back, I'm slightly uncomfortable with the 'natural justice' line of thinking cpr and some others brought up: that basically enforces the morality of corporations with money. But yeah TINA...

    But today I spoke to someone who was able to explain - the aggrieved went to the co-d's room and had *** with him whereupon Evans wandered in and decided to stir the porridge - So presumably the jury concluded that the aggrieved looked sufficiently sober on entering the hotel that they thought she might have consented to having *** with the first man (don't forget a reasonable doubt is all that is needed for an acquittal) but they found it a step too far that she was in a fit state to consent to his mate coming in and having a go - perfectly logical, in no way perverse and Evans clearly a total **** - I wish he'd shut up about this appeal because it's obviously going absolutely nowhere
