From SHEFFIELD UNITED, I said, not JAIL, in case you are confused. Anyway, Sheffield United have finally decided to axe their infamous striker Ched Evans, who was convicted of rape and sentenced to five years imprisonment last month.

The Blades only recently suffered the heartbreak of losing on penalties in the League One play-off final, while it is a strong possibility that if their top-scorer Evans had not committed such a thoroughly vile crime and totally messed up a number of people’s lives in the process, United could well have secured an automatic promotion place.

Evans was released along with 10 other United players as the Blades began their summer clear-out.

Former Man City player Evans had also become some kind of hero for a whole load of utter morons on Facebook and Twitter, but while the player will get out of prison at some point, his victim will have to live with her trauma for the rest of her life.

    Does anybody know what actually happens in a situation like this (also see: Marlon King)? Do you just get your contract terminated for gross misconduct, much like in a normal workplace?

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer club!

    Yerp, I’m pretty sure that there are some stiupulations that allow clubs to release players even with substantial contracts; Mutu.

    and hopefully Barton in the next week or so.

    The girlfriend of a facebook friend (incidentally an arse hole) has Evans as her profile picture.
    For a female to do that just shows how misguided football can make people. She’s around 26, which makes it all the more puzzling.
    Anyways, enjoy league 1 blunts!

    there’s a very different tone to this article than there was to the initial Ched Evans article refernced in it

    A nice bit of unbiased writing

    Who cares SUFC were a one man team. I am for one, glad they lost their one man player Sheff Utd (evans) and I am also glad they’re not returning to the champ. Stay down there! Wednesday are better than you.
