because i've read that they were being thrown at city fans. that's why.
Haven't seen anything about that, but AFAIK, only one City fan was on the pitch, so it's unlikely that's what happened when Rio got hit.
When Scholes scored that winner against City, some of my family at the game were in a section hit with coins by City fans, and I know people who were at a game where some of ours threw them at Bellamy. It's just cuntish behaviour that needs to be stamped out, hoping some bans are handed down quickly after today. The other coins you can see on the floor in the gif show it's no fluke Rio got hit.

it'd also be nice if it was slowed down a touch because from my (imperfect) vision it kinda looks like it hits him in the cheek. idk though. anyone who does crap like that should be banned. was just wondering if there was a better gif available.
and tarring all the fans with the same brush is just stupid.
