Since when can we not throw bananas during football games!? Soccer for you Americans. An Arsenal fan has been banned three years from soccer matches for throwing a banana at Tottenham forward Gareth Bale. This is a big game and there needs to be better security in the stands, this happens all the time. Football (Soccer) fans are funny, but they need better self-control.
Thomas Flint was accused by a judge of committing ”disgraceful behavior” for hurling the fruit at Bale, as he took a corner kick. Flint also swore at Tottenham fans during the Premier League match at White Hart Lane. District Judge Rebecca Crane told Flint at a magistrates’ court on Friday that he allowed his passion for soccer ”to boil over into hostility for a single player and the opposing team. It could have boiled over into violence.”
Flint was also fined $385.
Arsenal had previously said it would ban for life the fan found guilty of the offense.
