Those who claim it's a British institution should count the number of Brits in the boats.
Just saying ...

Doesn't matter to me if it's Oxford & Cambridge or some sink estate's kids football tourney, disrupting sporting events in this fashion is distinctly, well... UNsporting. What a tosser!
he may have been an idiot but i think 6 months is too long.........what will be achieved......
people get only 8 months more for killing someone
People have done worse for less punishment.
240 hours Community Payback would have been sufficient.
Don't like the idea that he gets board, lodgings and entertainment at the expense of the community.
Let's face it the Boat Race is a long way and it really relies on the goodwill of the public to be staged without incident. It does risk disruption if too high a profile is given to incidents like this.
the people who put down tacks at various cycling races .did any of them get prison sentences.....and they put lives in danger
ourt of interest.......is the boat race like closed roads.........do they put signs up the week before warning people that it will take place and telling them to refrain from using the water during that period
I don't understand why the same two universities qualify for the final every year...
*thinks twice about sneaking across private land to go for a swim in a river on Sunday*
It is true that nobody was hurt at the boat race... other than a bit of dented pride and disappointment.
At London it is less likely to happen due to railings, security and the fact that the public would probably lynch you before the coppers got there anyway. I guess its harder to police a river than the streets

Funny how severe the sentences get when you annoy the toffs. This shows how unfair our society really is.
What he said. If an Oxbridge or Bullingdon type disrupted a footie match would he get six months?
Cf the community service dished out to a well-known comedian for systematically bullying and abusing his girlfriend ...
So the guys spent a long time training. So the BBC spent a lot of money preparing.
But nobody got killed and no damage was done to property. The guy's a dick but let's face it, he's been given this much for upsetting the establishment. A hefty fine and a good stretch of community service would have been more appropriate. I object to him now becoming a guest of her maj at the expense of our taxes.
Most of the guys in the boats are yanks anyway
