Watch: Ballboy assault in Australia

The Australian Cup final featured a melee ignited by Adelaide United defender Michael Marrone attacking a ballboy, who had been slow in returning the ball during overtime of Sydney FC’s 2-1 win. Sydney FC striker Matt Simon  wrestled with Marrone after he tackled the kid, who escaped injury, and soon after pretty much everybody joined in.

    Understand the emotion to quickly restart with the throw-in.  With that said, if you 'assault' or manhadle a ball person, no matter the age, you should be banned from the sport for a year.  No different than the four refs on the field or the game manager.  Sit for a year and think about reality.

    Pathetic and deserving an appropriate ban.
