"u cant punish people for crimes they contemplated doing but didn't."
Uh, yes you can. Have you not seen quite a few people being arrested and charged for plotting to blow up bombs in city centres these last few years?
AVB could be charged with bringing the game into disrepute. He has openly admitted his willingness to plot against the integrity of the rules of the game. So he can be punished for something he not only might have done, but admitted he would have done.
I disagree. id say plotting to blow up bombs in city centres is far more than just contemplating it!
deliberately getting a booking to get a ban out of the way is a minor thing.
so if u are going to compare it to crimes, it has to be much smaller crime than a major bombing plot.
so its more like saying i would have thrown the litter on the ground if id known such & such had happened.
i don't think there are many people convicted for that john boy!
are u saying there's no difference between me saying i would have blown up a city centre had they know such & such would have happened.
& someone making actually putting in plans & making arrangements to blow up a city centre & still planning to do it?
also avb was talking about something he would have done, not what he is planning to do.
its like saying i would have plotted to blow up a city ctr if id known such & such had happened.
compared to someone saying I'm going to blow up the city ctr.
but as mentioned earlier, when i said "u cant punish people for crimes they contemplated doing but didn't."
the type of crime i was talking about is 1 of the same minor level as AVBs.
i should have been more clearer, its just i assume as we were talking about a minor offence, u wouldn't compare it to major crimes like blowing up city centres!
ps. & stop throwing bananas at bale.
