Take the football element out of it, and the fans' reaction.
If someone in my organisation had been found guilty of rape, they would most likely have lost their job on the grounds of bringing the organisation into disrepute, and also for not being available for work for 5 years (based on the initial sentence).
If the job in question came up as a vacancy just when he was released from prison, and he applied on equal terms with anyone else who chose to apply, his criminal record would count against him, and he'd be unlikely to be appointed over someone with similar qualifications/experience who had no criminal record.
So yes, in theory you pay your dues and get a second chance, but in reality, a serious conviction will affect your employability for the rest of your life.
Nessie your spot on there as I know someone that got into an altercation with a work colleague and a fight ensued. Although two people took part in this fight only one lost their job and that person was dismissed at the age of 57 sevens years ago and he has never been able to get a job since.
You need to be whiter than white and young to stand any chance of getting any job these days as Ched Evans is finding out.
Cal sorry to read your still feeling ill and you mathschick.
KateF Thanks Kate. Guess who found it ( smiles smugly )
bikemyre I bet you felt great after knowing that you had battled the elements whilst others were sheltering.
PSC That sounds like a good run to me.
E mmy Thanks Emmy its been found.
Gobi Hope you had a good bike ride.
Well luck was with me today as it just poured down all morning. But just before I set off on my run the rain got less torrential and shortly stopped.
Had another one leg compression stocking run ( found the other after my run ) so I took it really easy again.
I ran for 32 mins again and later mapped it out on Mapmyrun and the distance is 2.68 miles so not far and not very fast but that will do me.
Just near the end of the run my leg that had the compression stocking on gave me a calf muscle twinge so I will need to be careful to make sure I don't damage it on my next run on Saturday. I will probably even run a shorter route to make sure I don't damage it.
I will also do a bit calf strengthening on the stairs tomorrow as well.
Thanks Cinders. Yes a diagnosis would be great because it would at least give me an indication of what the problem is.
Taking the meds is helping but today because we had a fence panel blow down I dug a hole fitted new post and concreted it in and blow me down I have the stomach pain again. But since returning to running rather than cycling touch wood it as not caused me to have any stomach pains.
As long as that continues life will be so much more enjoyable. I just love running.
