Forgive Freddie Flintoff

With all the hoo-ha about Andrew Flintoff's antics at the Cricket World Cup, one could be forgiven for thinking that he had murdered someone in cold blood or committed adultery rather than gone a foolish booze-bender. What Flintoff did was wrong and he has been punished (perhaps too harshly for my liking) by the England management, but it does not warrant some of the front-page newspaper coverage he has been getting recently as it was only a minor indiscretion in the wider scheme of things that make up our existence.
On the issue of forgiveness, I have been finally able to forgive some of those who have wronged me in the past, so if I could do that, then how about everyone else doing the same for Flintoff?

An unfortunate turn of phrase, perhaps...

After reading your comment, in hindsight another example could have been used.
