Ben Stokes trial
Jurors have been asked by the judge if they follow England cricket (if so, presumably they will not be jurors). All the same, I don't see Stokes being convicted despite the video evidence.

From the video I did not see anything that we have all not seen plenty of times
Pissed blokes get bouncy with other pissed blokes, wield a bottle then get ironed out for their trouble and will take a life lesson when next pissed
Life's learning process, all part of growing up, serves you right would have been the view when I was a lad

Modern life (and CCTV) is shit

Re: Ben Stokes trial
As often happens, the defence case was at its strongest before the defendant gave evidence. Stokes appears to have shafted himself by telling the court that he couldn't remember knocking people senseless, and admitted that he had a load more to drink than the jury would ever have done themselves. He basically got worked up with adrenaline, testosterone and alcohol that evening, but is too honest for his own good in a trial situation.

Re: Ben Stokes trial
Completely agree that this is being given way too much attention.

However Stokes is clearly a monumental Kiwi bellend and I'd be happy if he never played for England again.

Re: Ben Stokes trial
Ryan Hale was acquitted because the judge found he had no case to answer. It doesn't appear that the evidence against him which emerged at trial during the prosecution case was any different from that which would have been known all along to the CPS. Why was he charged then? Presumably because the CPS thought it a good way of getting him to give evidence, in his own defence, of what Stokes in particular did. That has backfired and he is now not going to appear as a witness at all. That may help Stokes, because how the fight started is known only to the 2 remaining defendants, and they will give different accounts.

Re: Ben Stokes trial

To be fair the vast majority of these probably end in the same way that they used to, with no police involvement at all, provided no one was badly hurt.

But and England cricketer caughtn giving someone a clump on camera was always going to end up in court.

Re: Ben Stokes trial

After he is arrested he asks 'what about the other two' who he had the row with and then asks about the two gay guys as well. All on body camera apparently so unlikely it's a manufactured alibi. Add to that one of the 2 involved in the fight said at the scene he didn't want to press charges

Re: Ben Stokes trial
There was a fight, so what. I grew up in quite a rough town and if you acted like an arsehole you'd get a good kick in, sometimes deserved, other times less so. It was all part of growing up. But the police never got involved.

A five or six day trial at a cost of I don't know what, is ridiculous. It seems to me that it was six of one, half a dozen of another. Just a few pissed blokes having an argument that ended up with a few clumps.

They should just be made to shake hands and move on, like back in the day. Society now is so precious, can't do this, can't say that, it's all rather pathetic.

Re: Ben Stokes trial
Young man gets pissed and gets into a row.

Prison sentence based on his fame is a waste of time really...he's a bit fiery but has probably learnt his lesson

Re: Ben Stokes trial
I understand one of the blokes was threatening Stokes with a bottle and the other with a metal pole. I imagine that’s why they have been charged
From my view Stokes defends himself from any threat (what caused that threat we will wait & see) and then goes beyond as the blokes back off and smashes the shit out of them.
Long beyond when any threat exists.

As long as the ECB suspend him for next years World Cup and Ashes I dont particularly care how this little gay spat plays out.

Re: Ben Stokes trial
Whatever the timeline of the fight and exactly who did what, Stokes certainty has a prehistoric attitude to sexuality.
His Larry Grason act was truly purile, and he comes over like a thick bone headed lout.
Methinks he doth protest too much

Chigwell 5:11 Wed Aug 8
Re: Ben Stokes trial
The evidence is not as straightforward at seems at the moment. Obviously if the CPS believed that Stokes was the only aggressor, they would not have also charged the Ryans with affray. There must be enough evidence against those two to take the trial beyond the half way point, and then we'll have the excitement of cutthroat defences.

Ginger bloke gets a bit PISSED and acts a like a TWAT.

Fucks sake, the poor bloke should just plead GINGER.


Sorry if this has upset and offended any GINGERS out there who are fiery and hot headed. It's your human right to be that way of course.

He was drunk and I hope he is given a second chance but he has to be very serious and true in his apology for what he did.
