8-o

Amazing the level of stupidity of some people. Banned, so now toss his butt in jail and pay every cent he's got to the ref he hit.

What a loser. :-t

Wow, I thought maybe this was a thread about a donkey punch, but that's even crazier!

i'm not saying that the player was right to punch the ref, but i do think it should be noted that he most likely did not know that his punch would result in a broken jaw and a 3 hour emergency surgery for the ref. he at most probably thought it'd knock the ref out, if he thought at all while in the heat of the moment.

with that said, he deserves to be suspended and sued. banned? maybe. imprisoned? probably not.

That doesn't matter; what, he watched too many movies? He didn't learn, like everyone else did at age 8 not to hit people? Seriously, this guy, a supposed adult, sucker punched a defenseless (and considerably smaller) guy for making a bad call.

Throw him in jail; that's assault at best, attempted murder at worst. What if this guy did die?

Sorry Laean, but I agree with Coppermine. The player had zero grounds to punch anyone. There was no reason for the player to turn physical. Also, the ref has the right to do his job without fear of being physically attacked (and possibly killed or handicapped for life) by a player who could not control his temper. The ref also has the right to not be financially hurt in any way for the player's lack of self control.

Ban him? No brainer.
Sue him? Absolutely.
Jail time? Definitely. I wouldn't say anything nuts like the rest of his life, but he definitely needs to learn that there are severe consequences for severe actions such as that one.

On a personal level, that player is nothing but a scumbag loser. :-t
