50p Coin Thrower Banned For 5 Years

50p Coin Thrower Banned For 5 Years

Statement from AVFC:

A man was today banned from all football grounds for five years after admitting throwing a coin that hit a referee's assistant during the Premier League match against Portsmouth at Villa Park last October.

Villa spokesman Steve Tudgay said: 'We are pleased that this matter has reached a satisfactory conclusion through the courts.

'We will now consider whether to extend the duration of the ban from Villa Park as part of our constant review of safety and crowd control procedures and penalties.'

end...

He's got off a bit lightly there for what was a stupid and cowardly act surely!?

Midlands Today said he'd been banned from ALL Villa games for life. I said somewhere that he was a professional family man. This was no mindless thug but an educated guy with small children. Whatever pushed him to carry out such a dumb a$$ act?

I'm probably going well out on a limb here fellas.. especially as I'm a Pompey fan ... but I'll say what I think anyway... So the guy threw a coin and we all know that is a no-no.. But 5 years ?.. seems a little excessive to me .. make him learned his lesson for sure but come on..

Nice to see your club taking a stand and getting to the bottom of the mystery and catching the culprit, although even five years seems a tad lenient, doesn't it?

Not that I always do agree with you chix, another Pompey fan here, I think it's a bit steep. We all say things we shouldn't & I would hate to get banned over some politically incorrect moment. Some guy in Bristol punches a man to death & get's 18 months in prison!!! Where's the logic?

It would have been alright if he'd hit Arry but because he didnt he's a disgrace ;)

Are we really trying to compare not being able to watch live footy for 5 years with an 18month prison sentence? Jeeez....

They should have banned him for life from the Villa, but given him a season ticket at St Andrews!! On a serious note, I think a five year ban is about right - we need to be seen to take a tough stance on incidents like this to deter others from doing it.

I think he's got of lighlty, we're putting the name of our club about in the right way, we look lovely at the moment and he's dragged us down with that 50p. 5 year ban from football, sure, but we should ban him for life from the Villa

I think 5 years is fair, lifelong would be excessive though. Any word on how many years Drogba will be banned after he threw a coin at the Burnley Fans? Young kids sat in that area, he could have taken out one of their eyes, ah well he is a footballer so its not as bad is it?

I have to agree with Adam Deuce on midlands today they reported that the guy was banned FOR LIFE from Villa Park (that is a punishment straight from Aston Villa not the law courts). The five year ban is just for any other football games. It seems to me that AVFC have got their heads in the right direction when it comes to any type of violence well done Villa is what i say.
