Recommended Posts

He must have some history with the law i would imagine, 12mths is excessive when people get less for actual GBH.

We have many fans to be proud of. Typical somebody like this gets into the news wearing a Thistle top.:red_card:

I agree this looks bad and hope the club are decisive in awarding this guy a life ban! 

I would like to think that in general there has been enough positive news about PT Family Club etc to offset any damage to the image of the club and people associated with it  caused by this incident!

every club has people like this in their support - we're not immune 

Absolutely - just a shame it's on the front page of the news site. Hopefully becomes yesterday's news soon enough.

Agreed. Tho' the one difference between our Club and our near neighbours is we do absolutely nothing to attract scum fans.

That's my thinking too. A disgusting thing to do but:

Nobody got hurt.

There was no intention to hurt (just to both disgust and scare).

People get lesser sentences for much more serious crimes.

But it might help him to sober up, dry out and deal with his issues.

The difference is, Celtic and Rangers consciously try to appeal to bottom feeders by exploiting sectarianism. We don’t.

Depressing to read about this story all the same.

That's not what I was getting at. Our neighbours (in one guise or another) for over a century propagated bigotry and religious intolerance for their own self interests. I don't recall PTFC ever stoking similar fires for their own end.

Beside I would never accept we've got anything like an equal share of knuckle-draggers on a proportional scale. If that was so it would be like accepting that all that bigotry and sectarianism had no effect on the size of their support.

On what basis should he get a Life Ban - it didnt involve the Club nor was it anywhere near the Stadium - like all Clubs we have a Broad Spectrum of Fans - including idiots

Good to see the real Thistle fans getting good publicity for the over £150,000 raised to help the club during this crisis.:clapping:

I like to treat all stories like this now with the thought ..lets not be hasty. Reporters will always make headlines sound as dramatic as possible. To rush to say this guy is scum is trial by twitter. 

Nobody knows the character of the person. Maybe it was a one off that the guy will have to live with for a long time.  The high premium sentence was due to the high alert and current status of the coronavirus at this time. It would have been the same when AIDS virus first came out.  What would have been the sentence for being drunk and spitting at an officer 6 months ago. Probably a lot less. 

Its dispicable what he did but we need to be careful how we demonise.  There have been far to many situations were a person wakes up to a twitter storm and death threats who you find out later was totally innocent.

I think the BBC would have tried harder to get an alternative picture if it had been a Celtic or Rangers* strip, for fear of backlash.

Call me paranoid.

Begs the question - how or where did they get that picture, and was it the only one available from whatever the source was? I suggest NOT!
