absoulutely ridiculous, what happened to freedom of speech, seriously what does Gareth Thomas expect if hes gonna come out publicly. disgracefully decision. im sure the punishment wouldnt have been as severe if it had been Wigan or Leeds fans.



Your comment seems slightly hypocritical, given that you are supporting the victimisation of an individual yet also simultaneously suggesting that Cas are being victimised.

I think your missing my point here, I never said I had a problem with Thomas' sexuality, or any other player for that matter. My points were:

1. People should not be surprised or shocked that these chants go on. I have had racist remarks at many rugby grounds both amateur and professional.

2. Thomas has yet to prove himself in rugby LEAGUE

3. Some of the so called bigger clubs wouldnt have been dealt such severe penalties

the bottom line is if some imbeciles decide to chant then there's nothing you can do to prevent it.


The stewards should have started to kick people out or point them out to the police, plenty Cas could have done and didn't, the benchmark has now been set by the RFL, same should apply for all clubs who do sod all during and after games.

1. It shouldn't happen. We're well into the 21st century where racist and homophobic abuse is surely about as socially acceptable as drink driving. Clubs that do nothing about it beyond giving ground staff a meaningless chat on diversity have no grounds for complaint when they get hit with fines.

2. Absolutely irrelevant. Would it be acceptable to racially abuse an asian kid straight out of a club's academy? When does the abuse stop then?

3. I bet they would.

not at all I believe all players regardless of race, sexuality or background should get the same opportunities. I never said i agreed with the abuse Thomas was getting. I merely said it was hardly something to be shocked about and that the fine was harsh.

My point exactly Roberts was a star player Thomas is garbage. Ian Roberts was a bit before my time but I have seen some footage. Played Origin and Kangaroos and proved himself to be an extremely tough competitior. Roberts earned the respect of his peers and the fans. Thomas has done nothing to warrant such respect so can hardly complain at the abuse he is receiving.


Thomas has pulled on a shirt and taken the field. That alone gets my respect.

Beyond that, he has changed codes and put his reputation on the line. That, too, deserves respect.

I never said it was acceptable just that these things go on and people shouldnt be shocked

Nonsense. If you read some of your comments on this thread, then you'll see that you've been pretty abusive yourself.

Sometimes it's good to let these threads run as it allows the wider world to see the contempt that we have for our idiots.

I'd be concerned if his comments went unchallenged but the overwhelming consensus is that he's wildly off the general rugby league track when it comes to his standards and stance on this issue.

Racism and homophobia is rife, especially in the amateur game. I do NOT agree with this but as it does go on people should not act so shocked, and how on earth are clubs meant to single out the offenders when there are hundreds of them chanting. i feel there was nothing more the Castleford club could have done and as such the fine was unfair end of story. I also resent being unable to voice my opinions without been referred to as an idiot and a neanderthal
