Your constant attempts to sound like the worlds foremost expert on ancient history because you did a module on it in an undergraduate degree at your local university, really do not impress as many people as you think.

It's more like Gadret than Contador.

Contador was right. Andy attacked wrong.

The Shaktar player did the wrong thing which is why he is up before the match committee. It was a stupid thing to do, so was celebrating the goal but as someone else said, there is so much acting now in football that it's hard to watch. In cycling, attacking through feed zones is supposed to be a no no but it happens, used to happen more. As for chaingate, you had the Cancellara neutralised stage which was also a joke. I think Schleck has to cop it, these incidents or similar ones are not so rare. If he punctured instead of having a chain problem no one would have waited. Interesting though that the much maligned Wiggins waited for Evans in the Tour's tack stage and asked the other riders to wait except for Rolland who supposedly had not heard what happened. I think the decision should left to the individual. There will always be opportunities for payback later.

Why was it the wrong thing? It was not against the rules, was it? Who then determines what is right and wrong? Certainly not some sort of rule that talks about sportive behavior, in which case his action can only be valued after the event happened.

I simply don't see how you can demand sportive behavior, as it is very subjective. It's up to the individual to determine their behavior and as soon as other people are gonna judge what is sportive and what is not, the behavior is not sportive anymore by definition, but rather a simple follow-the-rule action.

I only saw this video:

Don't know what you saw. The way I see it, it's chest/elbow not face/shoulder. Hiding your face seems like a pretty normal reaction when hurt, even if not hurt in the face. But that's completely beside the point. FCN didn't gain anything by the game being stopped in that situation since they were in control of the ball.
