THE FIRST MAN - At the height of the Covid-19 epidemic, with the country under full lockdown, drove from London to Durham, then decided a day out at Barnard Castle was in order before driving back to London.

THE SECOND MAN - He is a successful international sports star. With the lockdown restrictions now being considerably lessened made an authorised drive from a venue in Southampton to a venue in Manchester where he was due to play next. Not on his direct route but he called into his home in Brighton on the way,

THE FIRST MAN suffered no sanction against him. In fact he was allowed to hold a press conference in the garden of 10 Downing Street to somehow claim that that travel restrictions did not apply to him.

THE SECOND MAN was withdrawn from the team of which he is one of the most succesful members, asked to quarentine himself and treated like some kind of pariah.

This difference is confusing. To me, the behavior of the first man is more reprehensible than that of the second man. Am I missing something here?
