    Default Duncan Ferguson jailing Anthony Stokes head butt and assault

    Both instances occurred in the same court durisdiction Ferguson gets jailed for a less alleged assault yes I know he had previous but Stokes had two assaults on players yesterday and he has previous but I do not expect the Crown Office in Scotland to become involved. Sorry another agency run by the corrupt for the protection of the their own.

    Scotland is a very strange country where justice has not been a thing of equal, balanced and proportionate measure for quite some time.
    You are right to draw attention to the remarkably similar distinction involving both men mentioned.
    But wrong to expect that it will ever surface as a matter of public concern.

    Anthony Stokes is still under a 2 yr conduct bond from his conviction in dublin for attacking an Elvis impersonator is he not ? How would that work internationally ?

    Remember though that the on park incident wasn't the only reason or the main reason that Ferguson was jailed.

    That's correct . However he still found himself in court over the on park incident.

    However, each "crime" is taken on its own merit. What he did that day was or was not a crime. His "previous" should only be taken into account when passing sentence if found guilty (which happened and he went to gaol).
    What the rhat did yesterday was even more dangerous. If Dunc found himself in court so should anyone who commits an act of violence that would not be accepted in outside life.

    It shouldn't have had anything to do with it. Or else yesterday was just as valid.

    The situation with Big Duncan was a bit too far. Whilst I'm not suggesting it's the answer, the consistency of approach or even a view from the SFA as to why such a punishment can only come one way would make for interesting reading. It's a perfectly valid question.

    Stokes owes a friend of ours ~9000 in rent. As it turns out, that debt is small fry compared to what he owes others. He'd been untouchable the last year due to residing in England, it'll be interesting to see if he decides to officially move back up here, as he's in big financial trouble if he does.

    Slight deviation from the OP but was Graham Roberts not done for breach of the peace when conducting the Billy boys in the 2-2 game?

    Any normal circumstances/ logic should surely see Lennon face similar sanctions for his actions yesterday surely?

    I'll not hold my breath of course

    Was it not just 2? No matter it was still a travesty he got time for what (never) happened on the pitch.

    Big Duncan was jailed because he broke his bail conditions by committing an assault on the football pitch. He wasn't sent off for the offence. Stokes is on probation. He committed two assaults on the football pitch. He wasn't sent off for either offence. No one wants to see the PF getting involved in on the pitch matters but there was precious little sympathy or support for Duncan at the time and the circumstances are remarkably similar.

    Big Duncan learned his lesson and has made a good career for himself.
    Lurgan bigot plays the vicTIM and tbh luves it. Gives him the attention he craves.
    He will end up lonely in a bedsit by himself. Nothing surer

    The wee bird who got her iPhone hacked to show pictures of all sorts had recently had his baby so I am guessing he will move back to be with her even though she left him while he was at Blackburn as he was shagging around and his parents moved into their house and started taking his money. From someone who works with her "his family were utter scum who just ran bills up in his name and then demanded he paid them".

    Despite being well paid he is destined to be broke and in the sun attempting cut his leg off with a pizza slicer in 10-15 years. Real shame when you think about it.........nahhhhhh!!!!
