I have no sympathy for Ball. He is a sad little man, but I actually think the fine should have been more and the Police involved.
It wasn't a witty, silly throwaway comment; it was filled with hate. You don't call someone a f***ing anything and not mean something deeper. And he made it far worse by messaging the actor directly. What is his problem?!
If any public figure wrote something like this about any religious group, he would possibly have been arrested. Also, he should really have known that his "thoughts" would be seen by many people.
The topic of gay footballers is for another day, but immature, pathetic, bigoted fools are holding professional gay footballers back by promoting hatred. The man is a fool.
