Maybe because for them its a really important and not particularly basic question. If you are building up to your first marathon or whatever and you have suddenly got PF then its a big deal. Or maybe its because we all want instant information at minimum effort?

Yes, it's a good point and it is why this kind of issue is debated and should continue to be debated.
Society views rape and murder with greater abhorrence than other crimes. Whether anyone thinks that's fair or not, that's just the the way it is.
Therefore, regardless of the penalty the actual law hands down, in "real life" there is also a moral law that says it takes more than a prison sentence before the debt is repaid for this type of crime.
So why at some point and with another club? Because generally "society" is harsh but not entirely unforgiving. It allows for his eventual rehabilitation in the event that he can truly prove he regrets what he did and has reformed. That he has not reached that point yet is beyond doubt.
