There are levels of violence. Players get sent off for violent conduct if they gently touch heads together, although one usually rolls on the floor like a dying swan.The violence was in the act of using physical force against someone he had no right to do so on.
Apt choice of simile in this case.

mountain out of a molehill springs to mind when I first heard about this story.

PLayer has been punished with 3 match ban. The kid should have stuck to the job at hand. You don't see the ball boys at Wimbledon act in this manner. They are trained and disciplined. He had one job to do and failed.
He had been doing the job for 80 mins and left to his own devices he would have done it then - and a whole lot quicker if Hazard hadn't got involved

I don't know about AFC Wimbledon, but when the club was Wimbledon FC it would usually take a long time to get the ball back, especially if it went into the stadium (although to be fair if the ball ended up between some seats at Selhurst it wouldn't be anyones fault in particular.)

Hazard won't have his ban extended.

Yep. Take the 3 game ban, move on, case closed. Both parties have apologised, nobody got hurt, and the only issue is that both made themselves look a bit daft.

Excellent stuff. As other have said common sense for a change, let the guy serve his ban and get back to playing football.

Very sensible.

What actually took place did not warrant any further punishment. Good that there has been no pandering to some of the ridiculous overreaction in the media or temptation to make some sort of example of Hazard, and that the panel appear to have looked at the case on its merits in spite of the FA's initial suggestions that a 3 match ban was insufficient.
