You are missing the point entirely. One team being "the guilty party" in the wider sense is irrelevant to whether or not the other team is (also) guilty of failing to control its players. Chelsea failed to do so, so they got charged. In real life you wouldn't get off an affray charge because the other lot were the (more) guilty party.

Quite who is supposed to control the players in those circumstances is a moot point. At that point the manager has next to no influence (unless his antics have egged on his players). In a wider sense I suppose you could say that the club has failed to instil sufficiently within their players that they have a responsibility not to brawl.
