EPL coach headbutts player: Pardew's third strike?

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Newcastle coach Alan Pardew's latest sideline wig-out: Headbutting Hull's David Meyler. Previously Pardew cussed out Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini and shoved an assistant referee.

Last January, TV microphones picked up Pardew calling Pellegrini a “****** old c***.” He assaulted the AR last season. This time he got in Meyler’s way on a throw-in and retaliated to Meyler’s swat with the headbutt.

Sounds like this guy should be permanently banned from the sidelines.

    He's put of control, obviously. Ban him from the game for at least a year, without pay. And require that he participate in anger management sessions with a licensed therapist for that year. Then see if he's learned anything.

    From the paucity of information in this piece, you obviously don't know who Alan Pardew is, where he has been or what his history in the game is. Before you pass judgement on anyone, get all the facts.
