I wish some of you boys had been alive and playing football in the 1980s and 1990s, god knows how you would have reacted to some of the games I have played in, in fact as recently as 2003 we had a game abandoned at canewdon, due to referee hitting one of our players,then theres the legendary kursaalflyers, with way out front mark godfrey, sadly doing life at the moment, who fronted some threat of violence by pulling his knife out

There was also a Mark Godfrey at my school, but he wasn't a nutter. I'm therefore forced to draw the obvious conclusion that everyone went to school with some fella called Mark Godfrey.

Thanks for the comments (excluding J) havent been in touch with my mate about it yet but last I heard is that he wants to get his brother and his mates to deal with him which is just ridiculous. Agree with Matttheshrimp about being biased but the ref was on our side and our keeper is a policeman too, i dont know whether this would help us. I'm happy to put up with the physicality of the game as that is a part of football, but were not there to fight.

PS both players got sent off. our player was taken off only to try to put an end to the arguing as no doubt had he have stayed on it would have started again, we wont be getting fined for the red card

Mark Godfrey is well and truly not a sunday footballer, well not at least for another 3 years..

No idea, no nothing about it. But anyone carrying a 13" knife, irrespective of any provocation deserves to be banged up.

Perhaps you should find out the real truth.. then pass judgement

So did the jury not pass judgement - were they not given the facts?
Yes, they would have been. In our (quite correctly) defendant-weighted criminal justice system, if they sent him down for attempted murder, that's good enough for me.

J, on the other hand, invariably has only a passing acquaintance with the facts of any given situation.
