And Radio Derby twitter account.  Some of the more militant replies are calling for their contracts to be ripped up, whis is a bit of an over the top reaction.  A few games suspension and a hefty fine should be about right.

This one caught my eye...

Personally think it’s disgusting, wouldn’t surprise me if they were driving like twits.

would be disappointed if they were both sacked, sorry.

Would you expect to be sacked from your job if you were caught drink driving?

What they've done is awful and they should be punished for it. But let's try not go over-the-top here, as bad as what they have done is.

They should terminate their contracts if they admit matters or are found guilty.  Irresponsible and dangerous and should not be representing our club.

Compare those two with the likes of Milner who  has not touched a drop whilst being a professional footballer.  He has over achieved in his career.  We are left with these players, one who thinks he is Ronaldo when a wall is in front of him and the other who should be content with living most peoples boyhood dream.

No but nor would I expect to be seen as a role model.

People can lose their job for having criminal convictions.  This is about responsibility and conduct.  I am a solicitor and would be potentialy struck off for behaving in this way.  It is not over the top at all.

It doesn't work comparing football to normal jobs. If you're in the public eye, you should be expected to act in a certain way.
