    What an absolute boss.
     
  2. Probably the best way to handle it, he brushes it off and hopefully who ever threw it is banned for life (won't do much probably) and hit with a decent sized fine.
     
  3. Because he looks like Snoop Dogg?
     
  4. Remarkably he only used 4 exclamation marks overall, pretty low for Rio's standards.
     
  5. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They could have put his fucking eye out
     
  6. I posted that before you :p
     
  7. Fair play to Rio and a lot of the players in the derby playing the game an havin banter but not goin overboard an keepin themselves out of trouble.

    Sadly it won't happen, our legal system is a disgrace.. The worst thing he'll get is around a 4 month sentence which of he behaves he'll serve around 1 and a half of.
     
  9. He won't even get a sentence for throwing a coin. He'll simply get banned from City games.

    Crawley got 4 months for pushing Kirkland due to previous so it depends on the circumstances.
     
  11. Who's Crawley?

  13. Those charges are assault and entering the field. All the fan did was chuck a coin onto the pitch that "accidentally" hit Rio, I don't think he can go to prison for that.

    So you wouldn't class that as intent to wound? Is it beyond a reasonable doubt that a coin thrown in the direction of an individual couldn't cause a breakage to 2 layers of skin? It's unlikely admittedly but if he wanted to Rio could press charges I'm sure.
