Dane Chisolm 8 match ban


Recommended Posts


The  RFL Were 100% Certain he did say it. Just because he plays for your team doesn't mean every Featherstone player is a Angel, To be honest the Fines handed out to Rovers off and on the field for Various reasons over the past year or so Seem to Paint Rovers in a fairly Negative light.

Statement released by Featherstone.

Featherstone Rovers can confirm that Dane Chisholm has been subject to an RFL Operational Rules Tribunal regarding an accusation of discriminatory language, which was made by an Oldham RLFC staff member at the game played on 29th August 2021.

Dane strongly denies the accusation. We stand by Dane and are appealing the decision.

Featherstone Rovers have a track record of working with people of all backgrounds, in particular, our work with members of our community with learning difficulties is second to none, these are projects that Dane and other members of the squad have played a key part in. We work closely with our principal partners at Millennium Support to provide opportunities for those with learning difficulties, this is well demonstrated in our LDRL programme of which we’re incredibly proud.

Whilst we work with Dane and legal counsel on the appeal process, we will not be making any further comment at this time.

He's been through the disciplinary and been found guilty. 

One person's word against another sounds dubious to me. If the person alleging a statement is always assumed to be right, could lead to false allegations.

If we take your point to its natural conclusion then it becomes pretty dangerous, as people can do and say whatever they want to people as long as they make sure nobody else is around or within earshot.

Who says it is one persons word against another? Fev didn't come out of a discipline hearing very well earlier on this season when it was said that they wouldn't assist in it

I think Fev are unwise to make their views known on this. They should keep it professional and let it go through the appeals process. 

Support their employee absolutely, but I'm not sure this line is wise:  We stand by Dane and are appealing the decision

Agreed and I think that’s the reason it generally isn’t to the extent of ‘proof beyond all reasonable doubt’.

I think they use proof to the reasonable satisfaction of the panel.

Civil cases are decided "on the balance of probabilities", I believe, so I imagine it's something very similar to that.

8 games is a lengthy suspension, while not acceptable, it seems verbally abusing someone is punished more heavily than physically assaulting someone nowadays 

It’s not just verbally abusing someone though, is it? 

Physically assaulting + slur would be extremely serious.

At least Vickers left his conspiracy line out of the formal statement...

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Tried in public by kangaroo court had long been wiped out in Britain, until this marshmallow-mouthed generation of teacher's pets took to finding cause to be offended by anything they choose to take exception to and expect the whole world to think them (verbally) injured.

My advice - grow up!

We had a saying when I was was a child, back in Lancashire just after the second world war: "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me!"  Worked like a dream, the "offender" felt stupid and sloped off to mind his or her own business.

This hyper-sensitivity to self-defined verbal offence is the product of a generation in this country, coddled (now there's a good old fashioned Lancashire word), coddled as no generation has ever been before.

Tell you what - here's an experiment.  Why don't all of you right now who are reading or have read this thread, and any others who read it later, insult me with all the nasty names you can possibly think of.

I solemnly promise here and now, not to be offended in any way whatsoever, by any of it.

Merry Christmas to you all and a very happy (Covid free, we hope against hope) New Year.

🥳

Unfortunately verbal abuse does hurt people though in many different ways. 

What about if the ‘offender’ is actually a big group of people and the verbal abuse is constant and every day? What if the viewpoint that people with LD are inferior and can be referred to in a derogatory manner is the norm and the discrimination is systemic (i.e. the whole population is the ‘offender’)?

This particular case is tip of the iceberg stuff but it needs to be dealt with to show it’s significance. The ‘marshmallow mouthed generation’ have a lot to sort out.

Indeed - if it was just one person's word against another (and we don't know that it was) - and one party already has form for not co-operating/ providing actual facts to the same disciplinary group some months earlier, whose word are you going to believe?

That do?
