Ched Evans is a class player at this level- a team will sign him and he will score lots of goals. Why not Argyle? The club could not afford a player of that quality under normal circumstances.
Football is full of criminals. What about Marlon King who has been convicted multiple times ? Argyle "hero" Ronnie Mauge is hardly an angel either. Ched Evans is just the t-shirt of the week. Once another footballing convict comes along, the media will forget about him. A bit like they have with McCormick.
