Team escapes porridge punishment

SOUTH African football club Orlando Pirates have got out of a jam – being hit with a suspended fine after one of their fans threw porridge at a referee.
The Soweto side will only be hit with a 50,000 rand fine if futher incidents take place after pleading guilty to a charge of spectator misbehaviour and bringing the game into disrepute.
A supporter had hurled a handful of stodgy porridge at the referee at the end of a comfortable away win for the Pirates in Durban in January.
In October last year, arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs were handed a suspended 500,000 rand fine after angry fans threw two plastic vuvuzelas and a cabbage on to the pitch during a cup tie to protest about refereeing decisions – leading to fears of a vuvuzela ban.
