Ryan Giggs hasn't committed a crime.

I am not a ManU supporter neither a Giggs fan. But still I don't like the controversies surrounding Giggs scandals. Footballers should be judged by their on-field performance not by their off-field events. Also if you see the pictures of Imogen Thomas you will find that Giggs is innocent.

debs90, I agree with you 100% that what he did is NOT a crime but it does not mean that he is Right. The events that unfolded clearly has implication on how he carries himself off the field. I am sure that his responsibilities as a professional footballer is being fulfilled on the field however, you are wrong to say that his off the field conduct can be ignored. The very minute when he signed on endorsements, he has to fulfill his contracts' moral clause where sponsors' products are being purchased by discriminating consumers. I know that his affairs may be private but I believe a lot would disagree with his gagging order on Imogen and the affair with his sister-in-law which has been ongoing right into their marriages. I do not know about you but I personally would not even want to associate myself with whatever products he is endorsing. Because, I feel that my money is being used by him to conduct his immoral activities and promiscuous lifestyle.

Whatever you say, Giggs unnecessarily has sullied his legacy with all these scandals. As a sportsperson he has been an ideal role model, but just when he was supposed to become immortal, these scandals have really put an hold on this. Sleeping with his sister in law and with others is really not acceptable. You can be a superstar or whatever, but when you get involved in such acts you definitely take the risk of losing everything that you have worked hard for!! Cheers! Ram

You can see that I have started this discussion in a funny manner. I was not very serious. He is one of the best footballers. He should not have done this to his family. I don't support his actions. Just these things are becoming so common that we are now indifferent to these things.

The problem arises because footballers are looked upon as role model. People expect them to be squeaky clean with no dirt tarnishing their private life. But they forgotten that footballers are still humans and it is unlikely that they will be "tabloid" free.
