Is the punishment fair, and is this a loss for Swansea City as a football club? Banned for 3 years and 150 hours of community service.

Perhaps this picture of Johnson (43) will help you decide.

Judge Thomas said: "Your behaviour was that of a racist oaf and you made a clown of yourself giving evidence during your trial."You claim you were waving to invite someone to go for a cigarette and that you didn't know about the club's connection to Jewish fans. This to me is laughable."

He deserved to get banned. You just can't go around doing that these days. What annoys me the most is the need to let us know that it was a millionaire that caught him on film .

Millionaires have it tough these days, haven't you heard of the credit crunch? It's about time a millionaire appeared in a positive news story for once! #justiceformillionaires

Is community service really necessary for being racist?

He will lose his job, probably has a criminal record and has been publicly outed as a massive anti-Semite.

Well he was stupid enough to show his true colours/feeling in public rather than keeping quiet and hiding behind the Internet on a computer!

Aside from this incident, football in this country is ridiculously overpoliced - what other pastime in this country gets as much attention from the OB as going to a match warrants?
