United - It`s Ludicrous!

United - It`s Ludicrous!

In this strange world of ours, it seems very strange that someone could be about to receive further punishment for an offence that wasn`t really an offence at all.

With both managers agreeing that Rafael was very harshly treated yesterday and that the second yellow card should never have been shown; is it not preposterous that Rafael could now face further sanctions after his vociferous outburst prior to taking the dreaded long walk!

I fully agree that it wasn't a second yellow (first could easily have been straight red), so understand he was frustrated, but his waving of an imaginary yellow & failure to walk / abuse to ref means he got what he deserved. Evens itself up - so 1-1 re: Neville escape few weeks ago.

Second yellow was warranted, it was a cynical trip that Rafael tried to make look like an accident. Rooney should have walked aswell, he got his yellow and was warned about his language, a few mins later he screamed ******** *****er at Mike Dean yet didn't get second yellow, why?

It's funny how manure players NEVER ever deserve to be booked or sent off, and when one of them does go it's all a conspiracy by the refs. Laughable.

P.S. Wouldn't worry about him picking up a further ban, you've always got Gary N.Evil to cover. PMSL.

Passion, like frustration (something you've felt plenty of), is part of the game so I think venting it verbally is much better than physically e.g. De Jong and his attempts of karate. Hyprocritical as always, never any change from the noisy neighbours.

Not ludicrous at all,he deserved to go for the first challenge,was lucky to stay on as long as he did.The ref was actually fairly leniant with United players could have been many more bookings for them.

Could've been more for you also cox e.g. Crouch challenge from behind on Giggs which was similar to Rafaels first challenge that supposedly deserved a red.
