Abstract

[‘Men with a hobby’ is the Dutch expression that fits the way club members of outlaw motor gangs are sometimes represented in news media. On the other hand, there are frames of organized crime that are used. The first one has the risk of looking too soft, the second the risk of exposing yourself too much as a criminal. Managing a fine balance between these two frames is hard work for club members. In this chapter the authors show which rhetorical strategies are used to keep the fine balance between tough criminals and innocent men with a hobby.]
