    It's a good point but to be fair to Sky (not that I want to be!), I think it's a case of double standards by our society rather than by them.

    Society will remember and harshly judge a footballer / politician / public figure that gobs in someone's face way more than someone who's done for a more "mundane" everyday offence like speeding or drink-driving. Sky's reaction just reflects this.

    I'm not sure that those double-standards are always a bad thing.

    It was Carragher and he was disgusted by it. Which is no surprise as he was also disgusted with himself.

    There's a big difference between holding your phone in a position to video Jamie Carragher when on a straight road stuck in traffic and solely staring at your phone whilst driving. I just don't agree that this fella was the menace to the road that everybody is trying to claim.
    Can I suggest that you refrain from posting any more on this thread? The more you post the more you come across as a right idiot. The attitude that you portray in this particular post is the exact attitude of people who sometimes kill people on the roads
