Paterson banned for homophobic comments, denies wrongdoing
The RFL have handed out the same punishment to Batley's Lee Paterson as Leeds' Zak Hardaker for homophobic abuse in a recent Championship game. The veteran back, however, launched a staunch character defence and attack on the RFL's disciplinary procedures on Twitter:

Sky Sports Wrote:Meanwhile, Batley utility back Lee Paterson has been given a five-match ban after being found guilty of homophobic abuse of an opponent.

The 32-year-old denied any wrongdoing when he appeared in front an independent disciplinary tribunal in Leeds charged with a Grade E offence, which carries a sentence of between four and eight matches.

The punishment mirrors that handed out to Leeds' England international Zak Hardaker in June after he was found guilty of making a homophobic comment during a Super League match at Warrington.

Paterson was sent off for the offence during the Bulldogs' 36-6 home defeat by Championship leaders Leigh on August 3.

The ban effectively ends the season for Paterson, who is in his first season with Batley after seven years with Halifax, although he maintained his innocence after the hearing.

Paterson tweeted: "Like I said before people that no (sic) me and who's opinion I care about no the truth. Not 3 people sat behind a desk who don't no me."

"It's the worst signature I've seen. Its mix of homoerotic eulogising and pseudo-philosophical shite makes me sick. Since Hank has had this sig, SLF has gone down the toilet. I hate him. I can't stress that enough. I hope he gets banned." - Kevin Sinfield

No, but he is clearly innocent.

I would have to see it to contextualise it.
