I suspect 1% of the fan base will be horrified.

The other 99% won’t give a toss

It's not just about the fanbase.

Do we get the Paddy Power deal with a convicted Robinson as manager? I doubt it.

That's because it is quite different.

IF he is found guilty then I don't think he can stay.

Which as someone else said earlier on this thread is very inconvenient.

It’s already very inconvenient at this stage :no2:

I know this is an crazy thought, but maybe wait for a trial (with facts and evidence and stuff) and an actual verdict, before sacking him.

Domestic violence is quite obviously seen differently

Agreed. But given he has plead not guilty, police confirmed there were no injuries and there hasn't been a trial or a verdict yet - I'd still contend that potentially life-changing injuries dished out by Gallagher and Quinn are more serious (from a criminal perspective. I'm not advocating in favour of domestic violence here!)

In the court of public opinion, “hitting a woman” is probably seen as worse.

If there is CCTV footage and it has happened then it definetly puts the club in a bit of an awkward situation whatever their thoughts.

Will surely affect any chances he had of the Northern Ireland job if it turns out it is true.   Until it is though which is not a definite I am sure his position wont be affected in any way and we carry on business as usual with hopefully a win on Saturday.

Thank god for CCTV, hopefully that will help his case, and perhaps prove his innocence? Edinburgh has CCTV cameras everywhere so there should be no shortage of footage.

Yep, not the time to start being judge and jury.

I am not sure I care about this. I know that's wrong but I have faith he will be found innocent.

It's the opposite. He's fucked cause of CCTV.

Have you seen the footage? What's on it? Is the judge allowing it as evidence? What defence is being put up against it? Is video evidence sufficient for this specific charge or is corroboration required?

Etc. etc.

But keep speculating - it's really helpful.

I was told that he is being charged on the basis of the CCTV footage rather than witness statements. 

Obviously I've not seen it but the PF are proceeding so it's unlikely to be good for him. You can be convicted on the basis of CCTV evidence alone in Scotland.

infact can’t we let sportscene decide as they decide everything else.

He was only arrested because of what the police seen on CCTV

Whatever way you look at it, this isn't a great look for Robinson or the club. At the moment, the club statement is really all that can be said or done. We obviously have to wait for the outcome of the trial before we can deal with any conclusions that the court reaches.

Is that a known fact? I had just assumed he was perhaps confronted/reported by a random stranger to the police, as that area of Edinburgh has always been pretty busy with tourists, taxi drivers and the like. However, if the CCTV from the area is conclusive that he assaulted his partner, then I suspect the club  will be under media pressure to let him go. I’m sure it all will become clear at the trial on what they have, or haven’t got against him.  Until then it’s all speculation.

Its a reported fact , you 've clearly not seen many/any of the reports , and its probably best to stop assuming and adding detail like implying it was his wife, when its clearly been reported (in statements of fact)  it was his partner even naming her

Yes partner, not wife. I’ll amend the post to say partner.
