It was only a matter of time before someone took their moral crusade too far, making death threats to staff and family members of Oldham is perfectly alright in their eyes, a very warped way of looking at things to say the least.

That's it for him now but I do think that the clubs should have waited until the outcome of any review in to the case but I can't see any club going near him now.

It's weird how easily people resort to things like death threats now, and unfortunately when the people they are making the death threats to change their behaviour according to what the idiots wanted, it reinforces the 'effectiveness' of the death threats and probably encourages other people to do the same with other things they want to affect.

It also completely undermines the perfectly reasonable people trying to appeal to the club in a legal way, with petitions or withdrawal of sponsorship etc.

Strange times indeed....

It's an absolute disgrace to send death threats. It's obviously all nonsense but it gives them the outcome that they want. Nothing more than nomadic school yard bullying. Ched Evans' fate should be decided by the club who wants to sign him, not a gang of idiots that want to threaten innocent people's families.

Have the FA made a stance on this?

Can't help but feel they've neglected this completely.

He's apologised for the first time, and says that the reason he's been silent is due to legal advice:

Not sure what the FA could legally do, as he's been charged and apparently deemed to have served his sentence[However lenient it may appear].  I think the only thing they could do it hit him with a hefty ban along the lines of Suarez's for bringing the game into disrepute - but on the proviso it only starts from when someone takes him on.  This would deter clubs from wanting to pay him to sit doing nothing, but you know someone would get around it by amending his contract to be unpaid until the end of the ban?

The people sending fucking death threats disgust me more than ched Evans tbh.
They're certainly stooping to his level.

Taylor's a complete prick but there's no outrage to be had here unless somebody wants to be outraged. It's just a general point about a miscarriage of justice. Which happens. Perhaps it would have been wiser to compare the Cheddar Evans case to the Birmingham 6.

Probably worth mentioning that he's won his appeal, and is getting a retrial.
