How do you know he's lost his way? To play rugby league like he did, you've got to have plenty of the mongrel inside you, and a nasty little mongrel. That might have been his character all along. All rugby did was keep the mongrel in the cage.

Four years is low for those offences.

He's gone out on the rob with a big knife. I'd say that pretty much sums up losing his way
To be the man.... I forget how the rest of that goes

Have you read his book?

A good insight into his mind and the difficult world of being a professional sportsman.

When Terry Newton committed suicide it was sad to see he’d lost his way. IMO, it’s the same for Malc. But instead of turning to suicide he first turned to painkillers, then recreational drugs and now crime.

To me this looks like a man crying out for help!

He now has a period of time to reflect on his actions in a 'controlled' environment thankfully away from the public.

It's not sad and the only prayer that should be said is for the victims. He should have got ten years.

As a ex RL player the pity should be less not more. He had a charmed life and a privlidged one and that's how he repays people - it's pathetic.

Do not mistake me for a bleating liberal. Allker has got what his actions deserved. It is still a sad day to see. I hope that he can turn his life around. If a real gangster like John Pridmore can become an inspiration to others then Alker could find some form of redemption. I do not condone his actions but I also do believe that we have some control over the choices that we make and writing off an individual who may have another fifty years on this earth, as worthless, is as callous as his actions.

The people who were crying for help were the ones he was robbing for heavens sake. The man terrified innocent people with a knife - what part of that don't you get! There is no mitigation.

A lot of prisons are out of control, full of drugs and violence, thanks to budget cut and privatisation. A tough place to turn your life around, especially if you have problems with drugs yourself.

Thats up to him which route he wants to take. The good thing is the public wont be exposed to his 'choices' for a couple of years anyway.
