Some were still saying it after the verdict which is pretty disgusting. If that was some random guy you read about in the newspaper, nobody here would defend him. Glen is a pleasant character and a fine player but his association with Eccles AFTER the charges were brought did him no favours whatsoever.

At least Claire moved on (rather quickly). I hope she knew nothing of what he was up to because she stayed with him up until the guilty verdict, didn't she? Someone must have known what he was doing other than the victim and himself.
Sometimes people truly believe in treating others as innocent until proven guilty.

If he played basketball all would have been forgiven.
Which basketball player, having been found guilty of multiple incidents of rape, has been forgiven?

Velvet is just furious because he has not been forgiven for what he has done.

He was lucky not to do time for numerous offences.

Not basketball, but Mike Tyson is revered by many.

Sometimes people are naive fools. We all know now how sick and disturbed Jimmy Savile was, yet for obvious reasons he never answered for his crimes, nor did he have the opportunity to defend himself. Nobody has proven certain athletes to have been using performance enhancing drugs, but one look at an athlete's career progression (jobber at 25, world class at 30, etc) can usually tell you all you need to know. But none of this is really that pertinent to the point I was making.

People continued to defend him AFTER the trial even though the heavy sentence (which you would only get for serious serial rape) told us what a piece of shit he really is.

But if his own gf (or close family members) didn't know what he'd been up to, he's either some kind of evil genius or they're blind. People who didn't know him saying "I don't know if he's guilty or innocent" before the trial is fine. That's what my position was.

Yet on a certain forum, this didn't happen. People made a few veiled threats over it just because they liked him as a darts player and he was a mate of a mate or something. The same forum allowed us to post all sorts of shite, but apparently being disgusted with a child rapist was beyond the pale.

He’ll probably be out in just 2 short years. Hope he crawls under a stone never to be seen again.

If he’s out in 2 years, is there anything stopping him entering q school or any BDO tourney?

Don’t remember anyone with such a serious conviction playing in either code.

He probably wouldnt be able to attend any BDO event anyway as they have youth events. Parole conditions would no doubt forbid it.

Cant believe Eccles conviction being compared to those of Taylor and Tyson. Eccles was against a child FFS.
Thinking of one.

By your logic, Jimmy Savile was nothing but a humble charity worker. Though Bryant at least admitted what he did. BEAST!

If Martin Adams or Glen Durrant has been found guilty of a sexual offence we would never hear the last of it.

Taylor gets away with it because he's a PDC player.

Still doesn't get his due credit because he played in the BDO recently.

You know how it works. Daryl Gurney was a jobber when he was losing to Adams at Lakeside. Now that he is won a few PDC events he is a top player.
