gerrard cleared becks fined

July 26, 2009


MLS decided to fine David Beckham $1,000 for confronting fans earlier this week, which resulted in one fan getting thrown out of the stadium and eventually arrested. How meaningless is that fine? A grand is like spare change to him. If you want to get him where it hurts the most, just tell him he has to stay at LA Galaxy for the remainder of his contract.

Back in England, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been cleared of affray after punching a man in a Merseyside bar. The jury at Liverpool Crown Court took about an hour to deliberate and agreed with Gerrard’s claim that he was acting in self-defence. Isn’t he glad that he rejected the move to Chelsea a few years back. Wonder what the jury would have decided if the affray and the trial had taken place elsewhere, say in London or Manchester. Great article here.

These events in the past week just proves that footballers are free to break the law and get away with it, well except from Joey Barton. He had to pick up thrash just like Naomi Campbell.

    I love how everyone under the sun condemns this as Gerrard getting away with something when they don’t know all the details from the trial. You do realize that half of Liverpool would love to see him in jail, right?

    oh you got me there with that point. but its just too fun, cant resist taking a pop at gerrard.

    judging from the video evidence, gerrard is kinda lucky to get away scot-free.

    Fair enough. I suppose if it was a Manc, I’d be having a laugh too!

    Beckham should have been banned for at least 1 game, while Gerrard should have been behind the bars
