More on Harbajan

Not the least odd part of the whole overblown story is the revlation today that the judge who handed out his 50% match fee fine, John Hansen, was unaware that he had 'previous'.

Firstly 'why not ?' as it's public knowledge but far more importantly 'so what ?' since he should only have been judging the facts of the incident (and there seems to have been very few of them).

I imagine the previous issue is relevant just like previous convictions in court. if the judge knows you have a propensity or even a history of getting into trouble you get a harsher sentence . if you are of good character then you get some leniancy with the sentence.
