Surprised this thread has stayed open this long. Some potentially dodgy comments already depending on how this turns out.

I think people have (or should have) commented on what was reported, no-one here really knows what happens, one person has given a story but it doesn't point any fingers.

My spidey sense thinks this is fine, and anything libelous will be dealt with.

Seems rather quiet over Bradford way...from one particular contributor anyway...perhaps it's just as well.

Not good form from the BBC if they did mention it,, but entirely expected.

I for one hope he's exonerated. Must get frustrating and tiresome for him if he did get the attention mentioned by Sparehead, but I suppose when you think about stuff just posted on here, it's bound to happen every so often, sadly.

If only he'd read Richie Mathers' tweets. Then he'd know how to deal with hassle.

I don't have a problem with the BBC mentioning it, I have a problem with them sweeping stuff in other sports under the carpet.

We pride ourselves on being an honest and open sport and long may we remain so.

Exactly right. Please remember that when you're posting about what you heard from "a friend". We won't allow idle speculation either.

He's being treated for his injuries having taken his Mrs Doubtfire routine to a whole new level and managing to pass himself off to medical staff as an 87 year old woman! ph34r.gif

To be fair to the BBC, given he was due to be the video ref today I think its fair enough of them to bring it up, if he hadn't been due to have any involvement today then I'd agree with you.

lets just remeber a very old lady has been seriously injured here (sometimes a week or two later people with these type of injuries die) we should show her respect.

Took them too long! Thank you though.

Please can people actually read the articles then do two things:

1. Don't speculate on things that aren't in them. For example, there's nothing in any article about Ganson hitting her, neither is there anything in them about him running her over in a tank. Until there are more facts, don't speculate on this forum. That said, a s20 assault charge is GBH.

2. Remember that regardless of what the media may think, the rule of law in Britain still has the principle of innocent until proven guilty.

Come on people... we're doing our best to try to keep this thread open for discussion as it's a valid topic but we won't do so if some people can't restrain their lynch mob attitudes.

I hope he's exhonerated if he's innocent, but not if he's guilty.

According to the Warrington Guardian, "He was questioned by detectives at St Helens police station on suspicion of a section 20 assault (causing GBH without intent) before being bailed until a date in October."

This is going to make it difficult for his as a ref because some spectators may decide he is guilty already.

A difficult one for the RFL: Ganson bailed until October. Do they keep him out on the field or put him on gardening leave? It can't be good for his game-head if he has this hanging over him.
