no, he was supposed to not throw anything at all. and once he did, when piazza confronted him, he could have been a man and apologized.
and on top of that he should've been removed of course. you might say what would've been the point of apologizing since piazza would've been mad anyway. well the point of apologizing isn't to get out of being punished is it? not real apologies, not by guys who are manning up to their mistakes anyway.
if he was voluntarily removing himself from the game because he felt bad or he thought that was the right thing to do or whatever, like you seem to think he did, he could have apologized before doing so. If he was just running the hell away after being confronted by someone that he didn't think would find him or confront him, he'd just try to get out of the situation as fast as possible right? he only started walking away when other people around him pointed him out. he also walked out on his own before the security guards even got there and made him leave, if i read the article correctly. sure seems like he was just running away to me. that's not intelligent. any 4 year old boy has enough sense to know that you can run when you're in trouble and scared of being punished. that's flat out cowardly i.e. "gutless."
i just don't get your logic. it seems like you're saying as long as you fully pay your dues afterwards through an established legal/organizational/etc process, it's ok and you can do whatever you want.
it's not like i can go around the streets spitting at babies (it's no big deal, it won't hurt them like a barbell or anything right?) in the face then run away from their parents, as long as i go to a police station and turn myself in afterwards.
