Playing by the rules

March 31, 2000

Leeds United should be praised for upholding the principle of "innocent until proven guilty".

The case of Cantona was very different. When he appeared to carry out a kung-fu attack on a fan in front of a crowd of thousands and a TV audience of millions while wearing the name "Cantona" in six-inch letters on his back, the chances of mistaken identity seemed minimal.

But did the fan throw himself at Cantona's foot?

Tricky stuff this law business.
