Petition Closed

Ched Evans of Sheffied United has been convicted of rape, and yet the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) have still included him in their end of season honours list. As a secondary school teacher working with young and impressionable people who see sports professionals - and especially footballers - as role models, I feel that the PFA are sending out a very troubling message. As a professional body, they have a responsibility to ensure that the public see them upholding certain values about sports professionals.

Sign this petition to convince them that honouring Ched Evans is tacitly condoning his behaviour.
