Seems a bit harsh really when the sentencing regime (which sets sentencing guidelines) is designed to deal with serious foul play rather than people messing about. (Not that I'm condoning him doing it mind).
Whilst I agree it is a little harsh, it is inappropriate. It's really not funny... at all. As Will Greenwood said on SSN earlier in the week, many people wouldn't be amused if that happened to their son on the pitch, so it sets a standard to eradicate it at any level.

A bit different, but my dad thought it was hilarious when I got into a punch up with a balding 35 year old on a football pitch when I was around 16.
