I feel like PSL was aware that something like this was gonna happen with Chiefs sooner rather than later, PSL saw this coming but Chiefs didnt. They should be fined, Chiefs should be fined, a hefty fine.

I am Kaizer Chiefs supporter , but condemn what happened in Durban.It very sad the team have now to pay the R200 000 that was suspended and waiting for the new fine which is coming after the investigation.At the same time , Chiefs should have force Steve to resign long time ago. Let us hop this violent will never happen again. Some time we take our families to the stadium to enjoy soccer ,but this type of displayed,i will think otherwise to go the stadium.

Again will wait another 12 months before ruling is made. We South Africans are afraid to take decisions.....we act when something bad has happened even if MAMA give us a clear signal we still ignore the signal.

The best punishment this starless kaizer chimpanzees must be banned from plying nedbank cup for two seasons and fined 5 million ( 2million suspended) and play 10 matches behind closed doors and get only half of psl grant for the whole season ( the money being used to pay for damages and the medical bills for those injured)
