Now I'm not condoning what he did for an instant, a drunken yob is a drunken yob, and the ban is entirely justified, but six months for interrupting a football match?

I seen the incident in question on the TV and today read in the paper the person had got 6 months. I entirely agree with your sentiments, it seems to me that people get less for far more serious crimes.
