Giggs denied a place at PLs hall of fame

Because of being ”charged with assaulting two women and controlling or coercive behaviour” Giggs have been snubbed of a place at the hall of fame.

The question is... should morality have to be something to be taken into account when deciding whether a player is to be adeed into the hall of fame or not?

I get FA decision. It's hard to look at Hall of fame and tell yeah this guy here shagged his brother wife for years and assaulted 2 women.

Hall of fame should be about what is done on the pitch. Not at home or the bar.

As much as I would prefer to see only upstanding citizens be rewarded, I know that players can be two different people on and off the pitch. The player would be in the HOF because they earned it while on the pitch.

Same with other sports. Take Baseball for example. Many look at the records of players or those in the HOF with a virtual asterisk, because they cheated, or gambled, or did something to reflect a negative opinion of them, yet they are still in the HOF or still listed with that record.

I have mixed feeling about it, when it comes to Hall Of Fame for football, unless the guy murder someone, I think it's fine to have him there... people will talk about it for sure...

on the other hand, I get why FA does that. Although innocent until proven guilty indeed!

The question is whether you want children to be looking up to these characters? regardless of whether they should be put in on purely footballing merit, they aren't just statistics, they are people with a life story and children (and adults) will look up to and idolise the entire character whether the FA wants them to or not.

I think its fine if someone was a little bit of a scumbag but someone who was blatantly abusing people can't be in there
