What you are saying is you should have been fired instead of warned?Nah deserved sacking, shows a clear lack of ability to conduct himself as per the role demands.
I got a warning on here for using similar descriptive language actually and was spot on too. It's not acceptable language in a public environment, you might use use such language amongst mates but you wouldn't if you knew one had been impacted would you?
He's an employee of the club and the club has deemed it a sackable offense because they don't want to be associated with someone who has said those things.Same for me. Fine him heavily or something but to fire him for that is OTT for me
Not really. And I believe that the sacking might have something to do with team performance and also an off chance that the club has some clause in contract that they need not pay the full termination compensation if the manager is found to be guilty of gross misconduct.Read this story yesterday and my first thought was the guy obviously didn't mean it literally, but maybe it's more sensitive given the country he's working in.
2011 was basically the 1970s to be fair.Beggars belief how some 'ladz' consider it 'harmless bantz' to take and use the word 'rape' outside of its usual context (depressingly, I immediately knew where to look for an example: the Spurs forum, TheFightingCock; a place that seems to be an almost completely unmoderated free-for-all: see replies #4 and #5 in this thread). It's precisely the belief that the word can be used in a light-hearted way that actually causes offence, but those who think it can be used that way can't seem to get their heads around that ("PC gone mad, mate").
No. “Murdered” is far more commonly used metaphorically. “Rape” is pretty much only ever used in the literal sense and is far more shocking.If the coach had said "we got murdered by the referee", would he deserve to be sacked too? It's a genuine question, sensitivity and language change depending on the country, I just want to understand why this would be considered offensive or not.
What about "my players would have to get killed/murdered for the referee to award a penalty"? No metaphor there. Rather an hyperbole.No. “Murdered” is far more commonly used metaphorically. “Rape” is pretty much only ever used in the literal sense and is far more shocking.
Ok my bad, I shouldn’t have put it like that. But it don’t think it’s acceptable in any workplace that I have been in. I don’t randomly hear “rape” being used in normal conversations and is quite jarring.How did you imagine I'd want to try that based on what I just wrote.
For what it's worth, I would not get fired for it if I did.
nah rape has been traditionally used for loot/plunder/strip someone of their honor. And wasn't always associated solely with the forced sexual attack.No. “Murdered” is far more commonly used metaphorically. “Rape” is pretty much only ever used in the literal sense and is far more shocking.
You didn't need to tell me all of that tbh. I just said what I thought of it and that's itHe's an employee of the club and the club has deemed it a sackable offense because they don't want to be associated with someone who has said those things.
It's similar to how someone could get sacked by their employers for posting stupid racist posts on their Facebook.
If he wants to be able to say something as offensive as that, he should find a club that has no issues with their employees that say something like that.
In an Anglo context “rape” has always been almost exclusively used in the context of sexual assault for decades (at the least).nah rape has been traditionally used for loot/plunder/strip someone of their honor. And wasn't always associated solely with the forced sexual attack.
Yes in recent times, the use of the word "rape" has gone down by miles.
