Exclusive: Michael Carter says a member of the club's staff has been sent a death threat following a poor start to the season

Wakefield Trinity chief executive Michael Carter has admitted he has considered whether to continue on his involvement in the sport after revealing members of his staff have been sent death threats in recent weeks.

Trinity, along with all other Super League clubs, took part in a multi-sport social media blackout at the weekend, in an attempt to tackle various forms of discrimination and online abuse.

And Carter revealed to Rugby League Live that he is now unsure of whether he wants to remain involved in rugby league after witnessing some of his staff being subjected to death threats following their poor start to the new Super League season.

“I wholeheartedly agree with the stance taken by major sporting organisations in the last week regarding social media,” he told Rugby League Live

While clearly it impacts the 99 per cent of people that do not post or tolerate online abuse, hopefully this is the first step in either holding social media outlets to account, or getting those that can debate in an adult manner to call out those who wish to hurl abuse in any direction.

“The final straw for me was being sent a screenshot of a post in which a male adult, who clearly has a very young family, ‘hoping’ that a member of my staff ‘dies’. Rugby League is a game. It’s not life and death. And this particular unpleasant situation had me questioning whether I wanted to carry on being involved in professional sport.”

Carter has also called on social media platforms to carry more responsibility in order to stamp out online abuse like he has had to deal with in recent weeks.

"There should be greater powers to deal with individuals that post abhorrent abusive messages,” he insisted. “Every individual is entitled to post their opinion, and as long as it is done in an adult and constructive manner, I have no issue with that.

“But a lot of posts these days cross the line by a wide margin. If that’s what social media brings to the sport these days, I want no part of that, and no individual should have to endure the levels of abuse I have seen recently.

It’s obvious that things aren’t right at the moment, within the club, results wise, but that is totally out of order.

These people aren’t genuine fans at the end of the day, just trouble causers

I have a right royal Moan about some of our performances and that’s it , it’s not life or death and should never ever be taken as such by anyone

Yes the post was screenshot they know who he is, was a young lad ranting on after a loss and his final bit was I hope he dies, to which he got some flak and he apologised

It takes a special sort of scumbag to resort to threats like this.
I know to some sport is the be all and end all, but there are so many things in life that a far more important than sport, if you feel that aggrieved about the situation then you need to find another outlet.
In one hand I hope the perpetrators are on here so they can see everyone’s disgust at their actions, but on the other hand I hope they are nowhere near this board and it’s just the freaks from the north standers FB page (or wherever they frequent now) that are that low :oops:
