From the Twitter feed of Swinton Payer Jose Kenga.....I hope the RFL throw the book at this brash and arrogant idiot, who seems to think that Buying a round "endears him" to the RL community.......

JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

There’s no place for racists anywhere, not just rugby league. But that is disgusting by Argyle. Don’t think much will come of it though considering Argyle is the RFL’s best new buddy.

Just playing devils advocate here;

If an overweight player had gone over and he said do they let 'fat gets' into Swinton would we be seeing something similar? Im just curious as to where the line is. Is the line, don't poke jokes or have a dig at people, or are there 'no go areas', possibly race, sexuality.....Just curious

The line would be saying something overwhelmingly loaded with reference to historical persecution and oppression. Treating someone like a 2nd class human based on the colour of their skin.

If he has said that to someones face, imagine what he says behind closed doors and imagine what he thinks is acceptable.

He is a disgrace and should be kicked out of the game.

there’s a big difference between someone’s weight or someone’s skin colour, in that one person chooses to be overweight or at least they can do something about it if they want, someone can’t choose being white or black (Michael Jackson aside).

Casual Australian racism, typical of his generation in my experience.

I'm not aware of, historically, overweight people being hung, enslaved or disenfranchised. I do not think you were just playing devil's advocate either. You think it's political correctness gone mad.

Answer the question, is it right or wrong to say do they allow fat people in Swinton.

I don't think anyone is saying what he said is acceptable. Where is line?
