This will not be a popular post which I do understand but I feel a little bit sorry for the hibs fan getting 100 days in prison for confronting a sevco player on the trackside.
This is his first ever offence of any kind.
He didn't actually try and assault anyone except kick the football. I know he could have been carrying a weapon but he wasnt.
The Birmingham fan punching a Villa player the next day didn't help with the publicity.
Why was the sevco fan who tried to assault Brown in the middle of the pitch not given jail time considering he has previous convictions as long as your arm and done prison time before.
The 21 year old hibs fan has 2 small kids and they have had to leave their family home for safety reasons.
The young lad made a mistake and with him being made a scapegoat hopefully it will stop anybody from making the same mistake because if you are a first offender you will go to prison unless you commit the same offence at ibrokes, obviously.

{Ed007's Note - Just shows you, Leon, remember Lennon at Tynecastle and the sex-offender that ran onto the park at Ibrox to confront Scott Brown.}

Myself and Ed007 commented on the currant bun who was singing sectarian bile entering celtic park. He ran was caught and bit the copper. Slap on the wrist and 500 pound fine. Super salarys son wasconvicted of a hit and run which left the victim with a fracture skull and he had previous convictions. Sentence a slap on the wrist.

It still baffles me to this day that the guy who went for Lennon at Tyne castle didn't get jail time.

08 Apr 2019 19:20:13
Pk85 he was allowed a second attempt.

It was because the crown prosecution service blew it by charging him with assault ‘aggravated by religious prejudice’, a crime that could not be proven. The guy was willing to plead guilty if they removed the ‘aggravated by religious prejudice’ part but the crown refused to accept his plea. They then returned a verdict of ‘not proven’. It beggars belief that they could fail to get a conviction out of a crime that was committed on live television, particularly when the offender was willing to plead guilty. I don’t know if the prosecutor was reprimanded but he should have been in my opinion.

Scott Brown was assaulted, yes ASSAULTED, twice during a game, maybe if the players knew that it would be a criminal offence to assault another player, charges would be brought.

Assault on the sports field = prosecution = jail time + 5 game ban.

If the SFA actually find SB guilty on these ridiculous trumped up charges. Then SB should simply advise Police Scotland that he wishes to report being assaulted twice and verbally abused and threatened whilst at his work.

Good post Leon bhoy. Seems like a great opportunity to explore restorative justice alternatives. (Never saw the incident myself)

Hello everyone, long time reader and occasional poster. Love the site!
Other than the method of the assault, what is difference between Kent's punching of Brown and Duncan Ferguson's assault on John Mcstay?

A jail stint.

FFS, you can't be serious with these posts! Trying to defend anyone that runs on the pitch to assualt a player and try and liken it to what happens on a football pitch. Maybe every player that gets injured should phone injurylawyers4u, after all they got injured at their place of work!

COYBIG is correct the hearts fan that assaulted NL should have had a similar punishment, but it was seen as being a sectarian related assualt, which was difficult to prove. If my memory serves me correctly it was around the same time as the Scottish government were trying to push their football bill.

I've said it before, the sports ground is not exempt from Scots Law, it is a deliberate physical act against another, whether or not injury is sustained is irrelevant.

These overpaid clowns are not above prosecution.

09 Apr 2019 13:14:28
That's not an assault, sorry. More plausibly trespassing. 100 days in the clink is totally OTT.

09 Apr 2019 13:44:53
Exactly Stephbhoy! Like Ferguson's assault it was an outright blatant and totally away from any form of the match! Why was this not reported by the police? If it was in the street on cctv evidence he would of been put away! What is the difference here? These people are not above the law of the land!

In Scotland all the authorities, Police, judiciary, SFA, have a lenient interpretation for those who own, manage and play and supporters of Ibrox . The ordinary decent fans owners, managers and players of other clubs have far higher standards to attain and far more severe penalties if they fall short.
