I think possibly if it wasn't the final then maybe fair enough since the punishment wouldn't then be as strong. However the fact that it was the final and the amount of dissapointed spectators and the fact that the judge wasn't badly injured then I think they didn't have to disqualify him, a small fine would have done the job of punishing him while allowing the game to continue.
Competing in sport you are so highly stressed that you will get angry sometimes, and aslong as your action isn't malitious to someone then I think that only small punishments should be given. It is when you go out of your way to hurt someone or start a fight that serious reprimands should be given.
I completely agree with Nalbadian about the his view of the rules and the people in charge selectively choosing which ones to follow. I have been on the recieving end of this many times in karting and it is incredibly infurating when you are penalised heavily for an infringement where others arn't for different infringements.
Nalbadian was wrong with what he did however the scale of the punishment was not justifiable in my opinion.
