“The court has recognised the special nature of sports related injury and the fact that injury, even of a serious nature, can occur within the heat of play. The criminal law has a part to play only in exceptional cases, with all of conduct best judged by specialist tribunals with specialist knowledge of the realities of sport play. This judgment will put a sharp stop to the growing practice of disgruntled players using the criminal law to compensate for defeat or humiliation on the pitch.”

Sounds dead right to me.
