Hi,

Has anyone heard of an Australian Tennis Coach called Butch Heffernan.

He calls himself the Tennis Guru but when I checked here his name was available so I am using it.

He claims to have worked with a lot of big name players and is asking for money upfront.

Any comments gratefully received.

Thanks.

The girl was over 16 already, was ***** from Sept.2005-May 2007? Yeah right. These "victim" teenagers lie all the time and there's usually no proof.

The girl was not 16 when the encounters began. It went on for three years, do the math.

Innocent until proven guilty, besides girls these days are much older then they appear.

I'm going to regret asking this, but exactly what type of people are ruining the world? And what does that have to do with a man accused of ****** a 13 year old student for 3 years?

Another thing, why is this thread on MTF in the first place? What does this have to do with tennis?

Thanks for answering my question.

This thread is in the GM section because Butch Heffernan is a tennis coach who has worked with current and former pros.

What on earth are you talking about?? If you're that upset about 360's valid comment make yourself more clear rather than act schizo on a messageboard...:o

The offences were allegedly committed from September 2005 to May this year. The **** charges relate to a period after the girl involved had turned 16.

I don't see what my race has to do with the report posted on steveg this morning. Maybe I'm missing something since I didn't comment on guilt or innocence?

Mea culpa. I don't know why, but in my head that article said 2003 to May of this year, instead of 2005 to May of this year. I should not have given you such a fierce reply.

As far as this case goes, yes under the law Heffernan is presumed innocent and I really wish a better known news outlet would do a more in depth story on this issue and some of the other accusations that have followed this man around for the last few years. It seems there is so much more to this than the Daily Mail has reported.

Heffernan has had a reputation of sorts for years. Even Spadea's Dad said it was worth dealing with because of the titles his kids won (Easter Bowl, etc).

BTW, there is no evidence he ***** any girls. No one ever alleged it. It was all consensual.

Well it does sound reasonable with all the mind control and use of his authorative position that he deserves to be punished. It's hard to make a case that what he did with his manipulation isn't as bad as ****, how many girls has he scarred for life (not only in the UK)?

I find it ironic that the newspaper headline includes one his probably fabricated claims of career achievement.

FedFan_2007 are you a total asshole?Please explain your hidden agenda. Looking at your post history you are too quick to defend this beast, have you "worked" with him before or are you aclose family member?

Why does it take the police 5 years to jail this tool? allegations of his child grooming was reported November 2003.

Defending a convicted rapist who used his position of immense trust and power to sexually abuse girls/young women.

You're a sick ****.

Good spotting there, especially as he had nothing to do with Borg, glad this clown got a sentence.
