• SuperSport presenter Peter Davies in deep kak for exposing himself to a minor?
    Posted by on Oct 6th, 2011

    A couple of months back Darren Scott parted ways with SuperSport for using the k-word and now an award winning presenter who was  to replace him has been suspended amidst allegations that he exposed his genitals in front of a 15 year old boy.

    SuperSport released a statement saying “Peter Davies appeared in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court earlier today on criminal charges not related to his involvement with SuperSport. By subsequent mutual agreement he has been taken off air pending the outcome of the case.”

     

    Although they didn’t mention details of the court case due to legal reasons several news websites published articles linking the two. This from iol.co.za:

    “An award-winning SuperSport presenter has made a brief appearance in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court for allegedly exposing his genitals and masturbating before a 15-year-old boy.

    He made his first court appearance yesterday, hours before he was due to host a show. Supersport removed him, by “mutual agreement”, pending an investigation into the allegations.” [iol]

    Peter Davies presented rugby, cricket and soccer on SuperSport and also served as an anchor for ESPN according to Sport24.

    SuperSport ,world of champions ?…not so much right now.

    On many occassion I have seen these young kids grabbing one another in either mock homo acts or playing with themselves in the shower area. One boy even has no shame in walking around with an erection. And yes it can be potentially dangerous situation for anyone if the kid is vindictive and nobody takes the bait. I am not saying Davies is innocent or guilty but one must be aware of their behaviour . Some of these kids do not know how to behave. The best option for anyone is to take themselves out of the situation as I do, ignoring both adult and the kids behaviour. I personally dont think the kid is 100% innocent.
    A rule in all gyms should be that men should always sit with underwear on and doors to showers kept closed and minimise the exposure and have security enforcing the rule.
    This is an eye opener for all, and if Davis is guilty- shame on you for putting a child in such a situation. Have some discretion. To the boy, well done for being brave and confiding in your mother .

    @ Anthony, it is disgusting that you are trying to defend such a sick behaviour. On what grounds are you trying to do this? Pathetic

    Maybe its just human nature but its sad that its guilty until proven inocent and when it comes to these sort of crimes emotion far exceeds facts. What’s the full story, what does it mean “showing himself to a 15year old boy” Anyone been to Kelvin, there no shower doors there’s just a row of showers sticking out the wall!

    Its inexcusable, however, it takes 2 to tango, the knee jerk reaction is “how disgusting “etc, Im not saying he’s blameless, but could he not have been led on to a degree?? Also bear in mind what he’s been hiding all these years and his inner turmoil..Guys, there are a lot of that generation in the same boat due to circumstances younger more liberated people do not understand…yes its sleazy and yes its wrong..lets also look at his professionalism and contribution to sport..

    This would never have happened to Martin Locke, or ANYONE in Rhodesia….

    It takes one accusation, whether true or not, to destroy someone. Unfortunately, if its found to be untrue, it seldom gets the same publicity. It could happen to you!

    All I’m saying is know the facts before a comment is passed. If true, send him packing, if not then exonerate him…

    We should just wait for the outcome of the court case. A part of me thinks he’s a sick f*** and another part of me thinks the 15yr old boy has embellished the story somewhat… The youth of today are precocious little brats – somehow I don’t trust this boy’s story… sounds a little dodgy. If he was so shocked by the first “reveal”, why didn’t he just leave the change room then and there? Doesn’t make sense… just saying…

    Even if Supersport decides to keep him on air, will we ever be able to watch him on TV again without cringing??

    Hi Miriam / Anthony
    I suggest you read the full story and get all the facts before you comment, If you read the all the facts you would see that the boy walked out of the steam room when it started, he went to the shower and he was followed. As you can see the boy did leave. Not all teenage boys are what you say they are!!

    What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Most of you seem to have his alrady pronounced as having done it. Wait and see!!!

    This is such a rubbish story, why would a successful public figure put his career or reputation at stake ! He is a respectable loving father & not the type of person to act in this disgusting manner. I think this boy has it in for him or looking for attention, would this matter be going to court if he was just an ordinary man on the street? I smell a rat !

    Truth2 says:

    Just because he’s a father doesn’t mean he didn’t do this. Read the full story – this child was harrassed and followed by this man and has been traumatised. If this was a 15 year old girl, would you be turning on her as well?

    ARe you all MAD. How on earth could you possibly accuse him of this. Can’t you see how respectable he looks. And he is married!. And from an upstanding community.
    Shame on you.
