Disgusting.

If you disagree, you take it to the proper officials.

If I would get p*ssed off with somebody and kick him in the face, I would most likely be arrested and face up to 5 years prison for assault and intentionally causing dangerous bodily harm (in Germany). I wonder why they didn't have the guy arrested by the Chinese authorities. I assume that similar laws exist in China.
I also noticed that people doing violent assaults in sports often get away lightly, e.g. in football (I don't mean accidents, but intentional extremely violent fouls, which can have lasting damage to the victim and be in fact career-ending). They might get a ban by their sports association, but no punitive action is taken by the state.

Your right MD-11, here some overblown bling-ed up football player was sent to prison for a violent assault, but he only served 50% of his sentence and his club made it quite clear he could resume playing for them again.
Worse, not his first one and he comes from a slag, shitcu*t family, other members of which have been involved in even more serious violent crime.

Back to the Olympics, for some odd reason, David Beckham is over in China as part of the handover ceremony for the London games.
Why?
He represents massive sporting underachievement, at least for England, in football at World and European cup leveL
Him and his 'Golden Generation' we used to hear so much about.
Compare and contrast to the stellar performance, way above expectations, for the British Olympic team this year, often by those on modest incomes and with modest levels of support, compared to the massively wealthy but in truth, internationally poor England football team.

If you're talking about the Martin Taylor incident, where he almost ripped off the foot of Eduardo da Silva, he only got a 2-match ban IIRC, while Eduardo has to consider the fact that his career may be over if the injury doesn't heal well (or become a Sportinvalider in German). I actually agreed with Eduardo's manager Arsène Wenger that Taylor should have received a lifetime ban for what he did (though he should have also been charged with aggravated assault).

There was however one case in which a player was sentenced to pay damages to another player, whom he fouled so hard that he (the injured player) had to end his career, but that's it AFAIK.

No, he will not, unless the referee presses charges. As I have stated above, if I would have behaved in a similar way as an ordinary citizen, I would be escorted out of the stadium in handcuffs by the police and would be in prison.
I might well loose my job additionally (since it requires a criminal record check and I would certainly be convicted of assault), but this guy gets away very lightly.

I hate to be the jerk of the group, but the photo of the refs face the moment after the kick is hilarious lol.


As for the actions, if all this guy gets is a lifetime ban from the sport, he will definatly get off easy. Im sure in many other parts of the world as is here in the States, if an athlete goes bonkers and attacks someone with such violence they will be arrested. I can recall a Pittsburgh Pirate a few years back taking a bat and hitting one of the racing weiners In Milwakee ( I think was the city ). Police arrested him. And then there was a major brew ha ha at a minor league baseball game not too long ago, where the idiot pitcher took the ball and launched it at the opposing teams dugout, sadly it hit a fan in the head. Once again this athlete was arrested. So long story short, for this guy not to go to jail is moronic.

First all judges are changed after every match.
Second the judge followed the rules and disqualified him after his allocated one minute grace period passed and he was not able to continue the game.So where did the referee asked for it?

Now i have a question.Does being in the Olympics provide you imunity from criminal prosecution?

No I dont think so . They must still obey the laws of the local country although due to the event some things may be ''over looked''.

Why does the referee not press charges?

While he could be prosecuted for assault in the PRC, I suspect that he won't due as will be leaving very shortly anyway. I would assume he lost many of his participant privileges such as access to the athlete's village. He may required to be in a hotel room and not leave it until he departs with the rest of the Cuba team. He acted in a shameful way and should be penalized in part as he already has.
I wouldn't doubt that when he gets home, he will lose he access to athletic training facilities, no longer able to travel outside the country, lose privileges in Cuba such as access to more food, to stores that offer goods and services not usually available to most citizens as well as possible assignment to a work camp to 're-educate' him.

It shows how wimpy Taekwondo is when an Olympic-class martial artist can take a shot at a defenseless head and leave the person standing. Most any other martial art would have had that ref laid out on his back, maybe unconscious. Muay Thai rules!

Right now it says its only a recommendation that he be banned but I was reading they banned an athlete for life for throwing a bronze medal on the floor after the awards in protest. Won't be any different for this guy.

I hope the ban will only be the beginning, with the bloke facing criminal prosecution, either in China or Cuba (both places, where I wouldn't want to be in prison).
There IS a difference between throwing a temper tantrum like a 3 year old child and making a fool out of your self or knocking some teeth out of a referee's face.

Absolutely not, the tackle was misjudged and clumsy, there was no intent to harm anyone, the way I see it, he went for the ball but misjudged it.

Someone that should have been done for a vicious tackle is Roy Keane, can't remember who it was on, but he broke the guys leg (not sure if it ended his career).

As for this idiot kicking the ref:

I think the decision to disqualify him was very harsh, he was on his feet 5 seconds after his minute had passed, I know what the rule is, but a bit of lee-way should be given. Still no excuse for aussault though

It was Alf-Inge Haland, and yes, it was a career ending tackle, by the now "respected" coach.
