Not a mention on here and not that much in the media as Barton, a multiple convictions criminal becomes a manager of a football team and then knocks a rival manager to the ground. Meanwhile 2 Tongan rugby players are threatened with life bans for expressing their religious beliefs on social media. I know who I would recommend a lifetime ban from sport for. They are all in the wrong but surely physical violence is a good reason for a life ban.

I see the ozzy rugby player has been banned for something he said on Twitter

I’ve got to agree with sageform ever since he stubbed a cigarette out in a young lads eye at city he has a string of wrong doings to his name he seems a rotten character I very much doubt many would miss him if given a lifetime ban.

I agree with sageform,there is a place for freedom of speech in an ideal society,but head butting is a more serious offence.

Yes, given the choice of receiving a headbutt or reading a tweet, most would go for the tweet.

Thanks for the support, I genuinely didn't know what response I would get. It was not the isolated incident that prompted me to post, it was the history of uncontrolled violence on and mostly off the pitch that made me question allowing Barton to play any part in a sport supposedly trying to appeal to youth.

How many times do we see managers squaring up after the 90mins is up?
May just be the case that joey barton was provoked and was defending himself.
Really, football managers as a whole, need  to be behaving a lot better

Not a Kangaroo Court, just a comment on what the FA should be doing about itHappy As I said above I am not judging the recent incident in isolation but questioning how a serial offender can still be given high profile and well paid employment in a sport where anyone caught showing any inappropriate behaviour in the eyes of the PC police are automatically dismissed with a life ban. Perhaps a violent nature is a brownie point for the Football family.

Joey Barton has anger management issues and should not work in a stressful environment.

Barton is just an idiot.

Regarding the "tweet", if some gay person had a pop at straight people not a single thing would be said. Probably get told they are up for some bravery award.
