Rio Banned For Four Games

Rio Banned For Four Games

Rio Ferdinand has been banned for four games after the disciplinary body found his appeal against a three-match suspension 'frivolous'. That means he will miss the games at Arsenal, against Portsmouth, at Aston Villa and at Everton.

In hindsight, it would have been a wiser move if he had pleaded guilty: that way he would have been given an automatic three-match ban, starting with yesterday's showdown with City and he would be available for potentially hazardous games at Villa and at Everton.

But I don't blame him for wanting to play against Citeh and who knows how it would have turned out if we had played Brown instead of him (presuming Vidic hasn't been ready to start just yet). And at least he'll be available for the Carling Cup final against Villa.

Thats right. Rio was the first person to do something like that ever in the history of football. I can give names of at least 2 incidents this season where the same thing has happened and no punishment given out. We know what the FA stands for and it sure as hell aint Football Association.
