Just been reading about Nicklas Bendtner getting fined for wearing sponsered keks, but €100,000 is a bit harsh, even if Paddy Power are going to pay it...
Can anybody think of other amusing or harsh punishments, 2 that springs to my mind was Robbie Savage getting a 10k fine for crapping in a Refs toilet amd Gazza getting yellow carded for yellow carding the referee
All a bit OTT, do they really think Paddy Power have made a fortune in extra bets just because some player flashed his pants
I happened to see today in a Danish newspaper that someone within the advertising business had estimated the publicity Paddy Power has gained is worth around £1,500,000. Of course most of that publicity has come because the fine and suspension were handed out. If UEFA had done nothing, few people would have noticed anything.
