United - Rooney Escapes Charge

The fact that Wayne Rooney appears to have escaped any FA charges after his skirmish with James McCarthy, of Wigan, doesn`t appear to have gone down well in some quarters.

In fact the Wigan owner, Dave Whelan, has some very forthright views on the subject, spouting off to the media,

"It sends out a terrible message."

"Something is wrong when a top international like Rooney is seen doing this, as clear as day, and is allowed to get away without being punished."

"If it was any other club or any other player, you can bet your life he would have been sent off. But officials seem intimidated by the words 'Rooney` and 'United`.

"Manchester United are allowed to get away with things the rest of us get pulled up for. And you can`t have one set of rules for one club and another for the rest."

"I don`t care what the FA say about the matter being dealt with at the time by us getting a free-kick. They, and everyone else in football, know justice isn`t being served."


Now I have to admit that some of his ranting does make sense, Rooney definitely seem sot have got off lightly in this instance but then again, you won`t hear me complaining too loudly, unlike Mr Whelan who is one of many with the perennial axe to grind!
