Stuart Baxter makes disgusting ‘rape’ or ‘get raped’ feedback
It turns out shocking that UK coach Stuart Baxter, who is in charge of Odisha, has made obscene comments regarding “rape” after the Indian Super League lost earlier today.
Odisha used to lose 1-0 to Jamshedpur. Baxter’s squad was deprived of a post-game penalty that always – and rightly – led to frustration among managers, but the 67-year-old crossed the finish line.
During the post-game interview, Baxter claimed his players would either have to “rape someone” or “be raped themselves” to win a penalty.
As the Associated Press’ Rob Harris now reports, Odisha has condemned Baxter’s comments, stating that they are “totally unacceptable”.

“The club is appalled by the comments … it is totally unacceptable in any context and does not reflect the values of the club.” https://t.co/Fk67RqKyYK

“I have to say you need a decision to go your way, and they didn’t. I don’t know when we’d get a sentence.”
“I think one of my players would have to rape someone – or allow himself to be raped if he was punished.”
