      Good
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      An assault is an assault no matter where it happens, a lot different from a bad tackle to deliberately doing a thing like that

      Having read that earlier it sounds like he absolutely deserves to go down for a bit.
      I can't think of anything the victim could have done (in the context of a football match) to warrant his leg getting that sort of treatment.

      Be honest, at least a small part of you is hoping to draw out the usual suspects in the driver/cyclist debate isn't it?

      Were that the case I'd have given the story it's own thread and laced in some glee at a driver going down.

      My thinking, having read both stories within a few minutes, was how similar they were.

      Both horribly pointless crimes.
      Affecting people who were enjoying their activity of choice.
      Neither likely to be able to continue with that sport.
      Probably 4 families wrecked.
      Plus both defendants getting substantial jail time, for offences that have 'traditionally' only got a slap on the wrists.

      If you think I enjoy reading the same morons spouting the same drivel about cyclists, you must think I'm insane.
      Sure sometimes I bite, sometimes I goad, but all of the time I'm thinking 'that could be me rammed off the road with my spine snapped'.

      That, and a 21 month jail sentence ought to be quite a sobering thought.

      Should have been a longer sentence as clearly urban thuggery with total intent
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Clearly your intentions were on the side of the angels here, my apologies, I may have made a (incorrect) quick assumption based on on some previous threads.

      For what it's worth, I can't imagine anyone disagreeing that texting whilst driving is a moronic act and thoroughly deserves a sufficiently unpleasant punishment.

      The victim appears to have been playing for the pub at the end of my road in Stockport.
      It's a small world.
