    Sad case though this is I'm not sure that's all fair @Carl Sagan.  The boyfriend did dial 999 and call the police.  They had to respond and apparently found him with a wound/blood - no doubt their body cameras will eventually confirm that one way or another.
    Not unreasonable either for the police to refer it to the CPS who will have made the decision whether to prosecute or not. Personally I think it reasonable that they did - had it been the other way round, boyfriend on Caroline Flack, then we would have been (rightly) up in arms about their failure to take action. They're only being criticised in hindsight.
    It was the court that decided on the bail conditions, not the CPS or the police, and bear in mind that they had breached the initial terms of bail by being in contact with one another. The family may well feel that the decision added to her distress and be enraged but equally if everyone who argued that then wasn't prosecuted it would give many, many abusers (alleged or otherwise, male and female) extra licence to carry on the abuse.  
    The CPS are in an unenviable position - celebrity woman allegedly hits boyfriend, police called and some evidence of damage/injury.  Neither the CPS nor the police can or should be judge and jury about such an assault.

    I agree. I come from an era of the police saying that they didn’t come between a man and his wife i.e. didn’t take domestic disputes seriously. From that a lot of people (yes mainly women) suffered unspeakable abuse and felt completely alone with it. Things have fortunately changed and physical and emotional abuse and coercion are criminal offences. Nobody should be excepted because they are female or they are famous.

    I would guess that lawyers are the issue. They know we will contest the charges so they will need to set up a tribunal made of lawyers who know sport. Probably a limited field with limited availability. They also need to give their lawyers and ours time to prepare a case.

    Comedy on the radio - I half listen to stuff on the radio that Mrs Ilkley has on when she's cooking and it isn't amusing any more. It used to be.
    Respect - I know, because lots of people say so, that it's a good thing that we no longer kowtow to people "just because" they're a politician or a scientist or a CEO of a bank or a policeman or doctor but the pendulum has swung too far the other way.  We no longer believe what anyone says, even those who actually know more than we do, "just because" they're a politician, scientist, doctor, policeman, banker.......

    ilkleyram got a reaction from 86 Schmokes & a Pancake in Our Phil's Team Selections - Why we need to get onboard   
    Cocu and Mel have publicly outlined the target - for 50% of the starting 1st xi to be from/via the academy.  I think next season was the aim. At the moment Bird, Bogle, Knight and Lowe are reasonably regular 1st team players and Roos a regular on the bench.  Whitaker and Sibley are close and probably the next ones coming through (though on early season evidence Buchanan also looked as if he could step up) but both need first team, competitive games to learn and experience and for the club to decide whether they will make it, and playing them both in league matches from the start is a risk. The Cup is different
    I presume that Lowe will be suspended so my guess is that Roos, Whitaker and Sibley to play, plus Knight having missed the Stoke game, with Malone instead of Fozzy and Davies and Clarke in the centre with Andre at right back; Rooney, Sibley and Knight in the middle and Waghorn, Marriott and Whitaker in some order up front. And a strong bench.

    ilkleyram got a reaction from Mucker1884 in Ever sat in "The wrong end"?   
    Thankfully only a few times.  Worst was February 5th 1977 (thanks interweb) at Old Trafford stood in the Stretford End with a Man U supporting mate.  We were on the way down - Colin Addison was our manager, Docherty their's - and lost 3-1.  Tony Macken scored our goal in the 90th minute - the equaliser - into the Stretford End and I very, very nearly shouted into the silence "Yes, Come on". Luckily sense just prevailed but the flinch of my body nearly cheering must have been enough to alert the toe rag stood next to me as I could sense him staring hard.  Even more luckily they scored two more goals in injury time, he was distracted and I escaped.
    The last time was with young Ilkley in the Fulham fans in the second leg of the play off.  Not much risk of any cheering at that one.

    ilkleyram got a reaction from ramit in Agents   
    Players used to get screwed over by both clubs and managers and I don't blame them for having agents acting in their best interests. I'm sure there will be good and bad.
    What I can never understand though is why clubs have agents - they should be able to look after themselves -  or why clubs have to pay agents when they sign or sell players. If the agent's job is to protect the player's interests then surely it's the player that should pay them not the club. If Fifa were to ban that relationship then I would suggest that's a good thing. At the moment agents play both ends and it's not a good thing.
