The law of the land

Watching on as John Terry, found innocent in a court of law is found guilty of the same charges by the English FA.

Watching on as Rangers accept a punishment from the Scottish FA ruled as illegal by the Scottish courts.

Now I understand that in order to play or ply your trade in the world of football you have to abide by the rules, but at what point does the legal world say enough is enough. We have a case where we can be judged, as does John Terry by people driven by agenda rather than law.

We have a situation where you are found guilty by public opinion rather than fact.

The legal people must be scratching their heads at the moment.

Similar, but not the same, plus the FA don't require the same burden of proof that the courts do. He was, however, never going to get away with it.

yeah but they are still getting their wires crossed here.

it's not a bad tackle they are dealing with here.

they are going into whole new realms by deciding upon evidence if 1 man racially abused another.

FA's should have absoultely no jurisdiction over something liek this - should be a matter solely for the courts.

I would suggest that the courts should keep their noses out of football.

Play the game, shake hands at the end of it and then move on.

:lol:

is there any other place or time when the laws of the land should not apply? or just during a football game?

How often do you see the police entering the field of play when there are punches thrown in a rugby match? Would they take the same view on a Saturday night in the town centre?

Sport has it's own rules for on the field of play and should be left to get on with it.
