In the summer of 2010 Leeds Metropolitan University gave Geoffrey Boycott an Honorary Doctorate in Sports Science for his services to cricket. Sadly, what has not been taken into consideration, is his performance off the pitch with a court case against him for domestic violence ( and also more recently his comments about depression ( We are asking Leeds Met to withdraw this degree as we feel he should not be considered a role model for our students. 'The Sun' fired him after his conviction saying "Our readers would find repugnant the idea of us employing someone with a conviction for violence against a woman". We believe that his record of abuse and recent insensitive comments make his connection with Leeds Met wholly inappropriate as these issues affect many of our students. [have taken his 'indiscretions' even more to heart as many of our members suffer from issues relating to depression and domestic violence.] Please sign and pass on. Thanks Liam Challenger On Behalf of Leeds Met Students' Union
