Why ?

Because he was a drink driver.

I think your question is actually more relevant for you. If you’re happy having a convicted drink driver playing for your side, where would you draw the line?

Absolute idiot. I don't think stripping him of the captaincy would be excessive at all. He's not above the law. Our masseuse got struck down with this virus and then ya have Bertie big bollocks thinking he can wander around the place and do what he wants. Hope the club hammer him.

I’m afraid having spent my entire working life in law enforcement I can’t get my head around the lack of separation some have between punishing someone for a crime ( which is appropriate) and sacking them/ pillorying them/ disowning them or whatever ( which is subjective)

I can say there would be an awful lot of untouchable people in many walks of life, including on here, if that was the norm, as criminal offences ( including serious ones) are committed every day by huge numbers of people. And those offences that one person finds unforgivable, another finds understandable.

Absolutely he needs to be hit hard by this.

 

you don’t crash a Range Rover into parked cars with pretty much no other car on the road in broad daylight without being a moron, or having a stroke or a heart attack. I doubt he’s had either of those.

Yeah we already have one of those and I've hated every second Drinkwater has played for us.

I really like Grealish so I'm bound to be more forgiving towards him but if he's been drink driving I would be less sad to see him go.

People need to get a grip. He’s gone to a mates house, when he shouldn’t (not illegal, despite the lockdown) and crashed his car. Nothing mentioned about drinking, he’s apologised, villa have fined him. The end, it’s been dealt with.

Good question. But I could equally bat it back and say where would you ? ( and I did ask first 😂😂).

Because if you’d sack him for drunk driving, what about reckless driving, what about 12 penalty points for speeding, what about driving a dangerous and unroadworthy car, or driving with no insurance ? To name but a few.

Under what circumstances would driving while under the influence be understandable?

Hypothetically of course

Agree - should no longer be captain - give it to mings .

Well his grandparent is from Kerry which must be the only place in the world that is trying to legalize drink driving :D

Well there’s many reasons why it would be understandable from different peoples perspective, (*)but I’m not saying it is anyway. I’m saying selling the player isn’t appropriate.

example..... you’ve just had a pint, your ma has a heart attack, you live miles from anywhere, you’ve no phone. Not saying I’d drive, but I’d understand someone who did.

(Although I don’t understand anyone drinking, whether driving or not.)

I think its probably too late to be charged with drink driving as it is

And me

But the trial of social media has already found him guilty of that

Anyway I’m aware I’m in a wee debate with one or two, so, nothing personal, I’ve other things to attend to......I’d think the totality of my Posts make what I think clear enough should anyone give a toss 🙂👍

Who said the club should sack him? That’s crazy. He’s probably one of the clubs biggest assets. Strip his captaincy, yes. Maybe even put him up for sale. But sack him!

Don’t be silly. 

Edit- the above is based on if he is proven to have been drink driving and left the car after crashing it.

Please help me to be understanding of Grealish’s behaviour over the weekend. At the moment I can’t think of what he did as anything but unforgivable but maybe you can present the other side of the argument.

If he has been drink driving its more likely given the time that hes had a session slept there woke up early and decided to leave whilst actually still being over the limit

Something which I sadly think a fair few are guilty of

yeah the club is not going to sack a prized asset for this misdemeanour. Truth is players have done a lot worse and kept there job

What do you mean it's not illegal?
