Yeah I would be inclined to agree with that..throwing has never added anything to the game..whether done by fielders or spectators..
With fielders - Always felt run out was taking the piss a little bit..you haven't really outfoxed the batsman with the delivery..I think throwing from inside the circle should be banned totally..if the ball came to you, you return it to the WK or bowler by rolling it along the ground, Trevor Chappell style...now its innovations like that which really add to the game.
With spectators - these hooligans should be permanently banned from entering the grounds..besides the obvious danger that you might hit a player, you cause unnecessary disruption and give a bad name to the locals in general e.g Eden Gardens Kolkata.
