You clearly are

c**t

f**k off you w****r. Don't get all bitter because I've called you on your obvious virtue signalling.

I haven't once passed any comment on the actual signing, only commenting on the hysteria. 

So dry your eyes, and once more...f**k off

Jesus, just had a quick look on your Facebook and the amount of support this signing is getting is astonishing and tragic. Feel sorry for the many good Rovers fans out there.

Not everyone, a few folk that I know (women) have posting that they are not going back. These are fans that have been following the club for 40+ years. I don't blame them in the slightest.

Fucking hell I hope you’re joking with that. 

No. I’m unlikely to stop supporting Rovers. I get the outrage - although like most things on here these days and on Twitter - it’s completely hysterical outrage. Give it a week or two and these same people will be outraged about something else

I would rather we hadn’t signed him as this will just alienate a large chunk of our fanbase, but we have. I would have thought the previous alarm shown by fans in December was the end of it, but no. Maybe the club will reconsider if enough fans pull their support.

If you think it's only going to be a "20" or so fans from PnB who will boycott your club now, I think you're as out of touch as your BoD tbh.

Go f**k yourself.

Once again, not indicated support for or against the signing, just calling out the obvious virtue signalling.

Big hard man typing insults like that on an internet forum. Have a word with yourself, fucking twat.

For a while it looked like Falkirk were going to sign him.  Massive relief we didn't.  I'm not here to gloat, this news would be a kick in the stomach for the vast majority of fans anywhere.  Genuinely sorry for the Raith fans.  I don't believe in all this rivalry crap, we nearly all support our local team, just an accident of birth.  Had I been born near your club I would be one of you.

"virtue signalling."   shunning smug rapists came before these 'culture wars' tropes

having a backbone isn't virtue signalling ffs, plenty is. this aint.

You'd think with what's just happened with Greenwood that would have made somebody at the club think "Hey, maybe this is fucking stupid idea"

Nail on the head. The club knew full well how this would be received and did it any way. Which compounds the misery, really. 

Fucking awful decision.

He's signed a 2 and a half year contract now, I'm not sure the club can really reconsider at this point unless they want to pay him up.

Aye. I’d also rather keep the fans who have stuck by the club up to this point than attract a few glory hunters through promotion. They won’t stick around when it inevitably goes tits up again.

I just cancelled my monthly contribution to the player development fund and emailed the fund as to why. Im not contributing to signings like this. Will review next season. Hopefully others do likewise. I am truly astounded we have made this signing and taking on the fall out and baggage that will no doubt follow.

You don't think this is hysteria? The guy has continued to play professional football for over a decade since the allegations/civil court ruling... Haven't seen anyone protesting this? Signs for Raith and all off a sudden all hell breaks loose... Like we've plucked him out a prison team FFS.

Some of the replies to the announcement on Twitter (and a few on here TBF) make depressing reading.

Some people will really turn a blind eye to anything, won't they?

It’s grim.

You’ve got the wee spice boys winding people up about it as well. Absolutely tragic.

It's usually about contrition as much as the crime so Declan Gallagher would be your opposite example of Goodwillie. 
Rape is so low, so horrid that even if he had shown some (never had, never will) then normal people can't look past it. 
We hounded out Gallagher when we found he was training at the club whist on prison leave.
