This is only the beginning of football's sex abuse scandal but are we adult enough to confront our hideous past?


Football sex abuse scandal: Top clubs 'made secret payments to keep victims quiet'More than 20 ex-footballers have made allegations of child sex abuse, with several police investigations and an FA review started in response. police have received more than 250 calls relating to historical abuse allegations in football, while a hotline set up by children's welfare charity the NSPCC in response to the scandal received more than 50 calls in its first two hours.

Just as well I never follow football, until a few years ago I had no idea it was so corrupt what with Septic Blatter and now this at a lower level. This though sounds like another Jimmy Saville coverup.

If this was happening in football you can be fairly certain that other sports were/are also affected. Everything involving children and adults. The tragedy is that more and more adults who want to put something back into communities are put off because of the rotten apples. Nobody in his right mind mind would volunteer to be a scout master or football coach.

While I sympathise with the victims of football abuse, I can't help wondering why this came to light only just now. It smacks of deflection by the powers that be away from the government enquiry into widespread historic child abuse. The establishment always resorts to burying bad news with other bad news.
