Steve Diamond Given Sale Sharks Ban

Good, so he should have been.
I'm also glad that it's a stadium ban, not just a touchline one as per normal - it escalates the sanction.

I'd argue that for something like this in the interview he knows is coming as has a few minutes to prepare for, then each ban should escalates from the previous - regardless of individual.
I'd allow (much) more leeway for an interview given my d-match as BT have introduced.

I'm also always amazed that every time there's a concussion controversy, the coach "hasn't seen the footage and can't comment" but every time it's a ref decision, they've seen all the footage from enough angles to know categorically that the ref was wrong. I'd like interviewers to specifically make the coach watch the concussion footage before asking about it.
