    There's a brilliant episode of South Park in which Cartman pretends to be disabled so he can compete, and win, in the special Olympics. He portrays a ridiculously over the top caricature of someone with a disability that taken out of context would be grossly offensive. As it is the joke is flipped and he is resoundingly beaten in every event.

    This seems to me to be in the same ballpark. The joke is entirely self deprecating and aimed at the able bodied person. Had he text his mate saying 'the race is full of ******s so I'll win' then it takes an entirely different tone; but he didn't. If the context is as described by Madley then it seems he has been very harshly treated.

    I find the whole thing implausible.

    Statement surely incoming from PGMOB. There must be more to this.

    But thatís precisely why I believe his account...itís been 18 months...he has successfully rebuilt his life in a different country. Everyone had forgotten about him until now.

    Thereís no way heíd be re-opening this dialogue if he knew it wasnít going to end well for him. If it was sinister, he would leave it well alone as it has long since been brushed under the carpet.

    The reason for his delay in telling his side of the story could be because it was more dignified to let it all blow over, or, potentially, a non-disclosure agreement/policy which has since expired.

    Trial by the Media, Social or otherwise, seems all too common now.

    People seem almost desperate to attack somebody on the flimsiest of evidence, presumably to make themselves look better.

    I imagine the FA were preempting that, as opposed to the actual level of seriousness of the event.
    That's a bit rich coming from some posters.

    I think he was leading him on 🙈

    I do feel sorry for him, his "friend" clearly had it in for him to do something like that especially when he wasnt actually making fun of the guy himself.

    The dog thing though and the media nonsense was something else though, what folk dont know they will often make up.

    I'd have sued the life out of them
