Suitable punishment (Everton/Man City Game Last Night)

After watching the game on TV last night between Everton and Manchester City, my lad and I were discussing the incident where a hooligan handcuffed himself to the goal-post. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-16834545 We came to the conclusion that after the game ended, he should have been marched back on to the field and left handcuffed to the goal-post for the night. That would have cooled his ardour.

The guy is apparently a "professional protester" so a valid punishment would be to completely ignore him, a bit like the Twilight Zone episode "To See the Invisible Man"

A suitable punishment would be to ignore him completely, rather than affording him the oxygen of publicity.

I just noticed that you beat me to it - apologies for the copycat post.

They couldn't really ignore him at the time as it wasn't even half time. Maybe if it had been just prior to full time they could have left him there all night. (I wish!!)

I was recently watching an American football game, and there was a bit of a delay in getting play restarted at some point.

The commentator apologised and said that someone had tried to interfere with out enjoyment by running on the pitch. "We don't give publicity to that sort of person".

Maybe we have something to learn from that publicity conscious nation.

That was precisely the way our TV channels dealt with the 'streaker' epidemic some years ago - and it just seemed to die off when the cameras ignored them.

Bingalau - I would make him watch every Everton (ugh) game for the rest of the season. Now that's a punishment...

Export him to Eygept - they do it with style.

So you call killing 73 people "doing it with style"?

I suggest you get some medical attention...
