That's between the rugby players. Here the linesman was simply doing his job minding his own business. Big difference.

Nalbandian’s behavior was reckless and could have caused serious injuries (actually the last I heard, the linesman is having problems walking). It’s no different than drunk driving and all other reckless behaviours. A drunk driver can say, “I had no intention of killing anyone” and he’d be telling the truth too, but that doesn’t mean he should be released simply based on the fact that, he had no intention. How ludicrous does that sound? One has to be accounted for ones’ action.

Once again, whether he had the intention of hurting that linesman or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is what he did or caused as a result of his reckless behavouir. 


So are we comparing this to a fatal car accident now?  At least mine was sport.  Perhaps I should shutup

As others have said, I'm not defending his actions as he was clearly out of order and has been punished accordingly.  I feel that the police investigation is OTT, in my opinion, and I heard that the linesman was at work next day dontknow

Was on a sports programme here last night - yep, Fat Dave was punished appropriately but the linesman should man up, in their opinion.

No, I am simply going by where this incident falls in general and whether intent matters in this incident or not, because a man was injured because of someone else's action. How would you feel if I kicked your chair very hard out of my own frustration? Never mind if you got injured or not. It’s very humiliating at the very least.

No matter how you see things, a wrong has been done to a person who didn't deserve it. I personally don’t think it’s a police matter but at the same time, I can’t speak for the linesman. If he feels he’s going to report it to police then he has every single right to do so.

Even if the advertising board did stay in position, it would have been utterly rude to the linesman nevertheless. What a dick he is but he is Argentinian so are we surprised? Very Happy
  Agree with all you say, but find the reference to his nationality offensive, perhaps as a Scot i am particularly sensitive to racial stereotyping. as a Murray man you ought to know better!!

I wouldn't want to offend but I stick by my mild dislike of Argentina given their highly offensive and nutty leader and what appears to be a shared ignorance in the population over claims to the Falklands.

I see that Cilic is describing the police getting involved as an overreaction. http://www.thetennisspace.com/opinion/cilic-exclusive-police-should-not-be-investigating/

I know this is a couple of days old.. but I just found out how Andy felt about the Nalby incident. Until now, I didn't realise he'd made any comment. And I'm always interested in anything Andy has to say.. especially as he himself is in the 'trenches':

http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/jun/20/wimbledon-2012-nalbandian-murray?CMP=twt_gu

Murray, the defending Queen's champion, was watching highlights of Sunday's Queen's final while working out in the gym at Wimbledon, having lost to Nicolas Mahut in his opening match. "I looked up and I saw the match had been stopped," he said. "He ended up saying things that he probably didn't mean to say but you've got to protect the players. He was very angry – you could see clearly that he was still arguing before ... he was shaking his head when he was walking up [to Barker]. As soon as he said 'but' they should have taken the microphone away. "In any other sport, if someone flips out or snaps, you don't stick a microphone in their face and try and get them to speak. You're going to say something you don't really mean or regret.

"I've practised with him many times. I played him in my first Wimbledon. I've known him a long, long time. I don't know why he did it. I've never felt like putting my foot through something … but it happens. He's been on the tour a long time. He just got very angry and got put in a very difficult situation when he was still very upset, clearly. I personally wouldn't do that … Well, I hope I don't do it."
