    TBH if Symonds wants to go out of his way to halt the pitch invader, whats the problem with it? The guy is not authorised to be on the ground and its certainly an effective way to make any others think twice about running towards him whilst the match is in progress...

    Because under most rules of law, vigilante action is against the law as well.

    Well, he shouldn't have walked up to Harbhajan and said what he did in Sydney, imo. It kind of led to a few little issues off the field .
    Edit: the "I won't go to Pakistan no matter what" just before the IPL auction wasn't real helpful to CA either. May have helped his contract price though.

    "You only live once," he said of the spontaneous decision, admitting it was the first time he had streaked.

    He later told police it was "just something that he had to do".

    As much as i dislike Symmonds.. I don't think he should be punished for this.
    Idiotic streaker got what he deserved.
    One of the funniest moments of the summer.

    Funny thing is that my last post in this thread got deleted. Not by me. But omeone could've put a small explanation.

    What Symmo did was morally right. And had it been in India, he'd got plenty of worshippers, for tackling a wrongdoer "manfully". I thnik it was funny, and idiotic, considering an injury to that guy would've landed Symmo in big trouble.

    No tackle whatsoever. He walked a couple of steps in the guy's direction, who was headed his way anyway, and dropped the shoulder. It wasn't that hard a hit; the idiot in question was on the run and hit a brick-wall (Symonds). I've seen firmer bumps in U/17's rugby, the idiot jusst went flying because he wasn't all that big and Symonds weighs 100kg.

    Welcome to the forums, Lleyton Hewitt. I'm surprised you've got time to log in, what with being the little Aussie tennis battler on the ATP tour. How's Bec?

    I've almost forgiven Symonds for being a total turd all series after this. Would've been criminal to charge him, he didn't use excessive force at all. The other guy just hit the ground hard, which he deserved.

    You do something idiotic like invading the pitch then you deserve to be apprehended. Citizen's arrest?
