Warrington boss given hefty punishment for “offensive and discriminatory” language

Warrington Wolves coach Steve Price has been fined £3,000 (£2,000 suspended for 12 months) and will undertake a Learning Disability Awareness in Sport training session after being adjudged to have breached the game’s Operational Rules. 

An independent tribunal found Price to have used unacceptable language during an interview with Sky Sports following his team’s match against Leigh Centurions on 24 June, contravening the game’s ‘Respect’ policy and bringing the game into disrepute.

Whilst accepting that there was no malicious intent on Price’s behalf, the tribunal found the term to be ‘offensive, discriminatory and hurtful’, and that it should have ‘no place in the sport or society’.

Must have missed that one………but I bet it’s so disgracefully offensive, that it dare not be repeated, even as part of the reporting of the disgraceful act. 😐

I was just thinking, what with the fev fine and the Price crime of the century crime, the RFL are well on the way to clawing back the 14m lost from sky, great job 👍
