Man fined and now blind

Mr Bloor threw his glasses in frustration at a match official. With the game 2-0 to the Alex the Vale fan reckoned the official was biased over us. Maybe it was the frustration of watching Port Vale. i mean, who can blame him watching them lose week in, week out?

So his course of action was to offer his spectacles to the match official, Phil Spratt, by throwing them at him. Yeah, when was the last time a linesman/ref turned around and said "Yeah, your right i do need glasses!".

The twit was fined £50 because Phil Spratt let him off lightly by taking pity. He could have face a much larger fine and ban from all football grounds otherwise.
