Thoughts on this...

Every Sunday evening my friends and I play in a indoor football competition.
 
Tonight was just like any other evening about to start our game I noticed one of the opposition team had a Tag around his ankle. Now I am not one to judge or to make any assumptions about anyone. During the game we start to beat them easily, talented team, and things start to become a little naughty. Late tackles, few whispers and basic "bully boy" tactics. 
 
However, the guys and I are not fussed about this and carried on smashing them. I nudge a ball past the mentioned player, he trys to tackle not a foul a physical tackle i win the ball and shoot...save. I have a moan, as this guy has gone two foot against me and claimed "its a man's game...get on with it" I simply ignore that, and unfortanlty take a nock and have to come off. 
 
This guys becomes a bit psychotic and starts smashing our lads recklessly and gets sent off. 
 
Now, my point isn't about football or him its about criminals being allowed to play sport when they could have a violent record?!
 
Should people with tags be forced to stay at home, and not be allowed to take part in activities!?

    Simple answer, no not all.
     
    If they are a danger to people then they should certainly be given less freedom!
     
    This fella seems competitive, but he probably shouldn't be judged because of his past.
     
    It's easy to get carried away in a sport when you're overly competitive, but did he seem aggressive about getting sent off?

    Just sounds like a nob. You get them in all sports, most wont have a criminal record.

    thought tags were to enforce curfews not playing sports ?
    he would still be an agressive player if he wasnt tagged id imagine.

    He was just being physical and trying to put his weight around, his team mates where as bad. They where just trying to bully us, luckily we are a good team with good players so we just laugh it off. 
     
    I just wondered about people with voilent offences with tags....
     
    IMO, I dont think they should be allowed to play any sport at all.

    How do you know his offence was for violence? You haven't explained that bit mate. He could be a dodgy accountant and have committed fraud from all you've said?
     
    And you say his team mates were as bad, yet they were not wearing tags
     
    Tags are just to enforce curfews as said. The person has typically done their time but will have to be home between for example, the hours of 7pm and 7am, thus giving them the opportunity to work or indeed play football

    Tags only show someone has been caught for a crime
     
    For all you know the rest of his team could have commited the crime as well but were not caught.
     
    ^^^^
    See what I am getting at.
     
     
    I reckon drab knows more than hes letting on as well , for all you know drab is wearing a tag!

    So you are just asking whether a person wearing a tag should be allowed to play sports?
     
    Yes would seem to be the logical answer

    But you are still serving your punishment for your crime what ever it should be, why should you be allowed to?!

    Did you ask him what time he was to be in for?

    Don't really get the point of this thread,what next should people that wear tags be allowed to shop in the same supermarkets as no criminals

    As said above he could have done anything so should that him be damned for life

    The punishment aspect is that you are not allowed out at night, and have to check in with a probation officer every so often
     
    I don't really know where this sports angle is coming from mate? In what way does it matter? Anyway I'm out of here lol. Might go play some pool or something crazy like that

    Ok - say for example a persons punishment was violence. 
     
    Should they be allowed to play any kind of sport when wearing a tag?!
     
    Bmc
     
    I wispered in his ear, nice jewellery as i nutmegged him.....
     
    He didn't take it too well, and preceded to kick me all game. 
     
    Back to the OP
     
    Well until you have served all of the punishment i don't think you should be allowed such privileges as sport. Otherwise a tag is worthless IMO, take away things people enjoy when on a tag = understanding that a Tag isn't as fun.

    I suggest you write a letter to the government expressing your views and take it from there
